Pyongyang, July 4 (KCNA) — The south Korean Federation of University Student Councils (Hanchongryon) reportedly made public a statement titled “Security authorities should immediately release Student Ryu Hyong Chol and not suppress just demand for U.S. troop pullout” on June 30.
The statement said:
The Security Investigation Team violently walked off Ryu Hyong Chol, vice-chairman of the General Student Council of Chonnam National University, on the charge of anti-U.S. patriotic activity. This was a ruse to crack down on the activities of Hanchongryon and a plot to throw a wet blanket over the flame of the struggle to force the U.S. troops to pull out.
The security authorities must not suppress the students’ just struggle, serving the U.S. as its tool, but promptly release the arrested students including Ryu Hyong Chol.
Our struggle in the era of independent reunification will win and no suppression can stem the torrential flow of history, the statement said, and added: Hanchongryon will wage the struggle for peace against war and for the withdrawal of the U.S. troops with the participation of all the people, aflame with anger at the United States and the pro-U.S. ultra right forces.
