Pyongyang, July 8 (KCNA) — The People of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have all turned out in response to the slogans issued jointly by the Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea to greet the 60th anniversary of the WPK.
With a high degree of enthusiasm they are striving to make a new leaping advance again.
Korea’s is a revolutionary history in which the people have won victory after victory with the might of revolutionary slogans set forth at each stage of the revolutionary development.
The slogans reflecting the demand of the times, revolutionary spirit and serve-the-people spirit have served as a driving force which has given full play to the inexhaustible strength and creative wisdom of the popular masses so as to work epoch-making miracles.
During the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle the Korean revolutionaries fought under the slogans including “Weapons are our life and soul! Oppose armed force with armed force!”, “As fish cannot live without water, so guerrillas cannot live without the people” and “Let us accomplish the Korean revolution with our own efforts!” to carry out the historic cause of national liberation.
The slogans “Land to the tillers!”, “Let’s improve the people’s cultural standard from the abolition of illiteracy!” and “Everything for victory in the war!” inspired the heroic Korean people to build an independent and sovereign state within only five years and to shatter the myth of the U.S. imperialists’ “mightiness” in the Korean war.
The slogan “Dash forward at the speed of Chollima!” was put forward during the postwar rehabilitation and construction. Under this slogan, the Korean people turned their country, once a backward colonial agrarian one, into a socialist industrial nation in a matter of 14 years.
In hearty response to the slogans “Let us live our own way!” and “As the Party decides, so we do!” the Koreans have carried on the revolution and construction in an independent way without vacillation in any adversity and have implemented the WPK’s plan for the prosperity of the country.
The thorough implementation of the slogan “One for all and all for one!” has brought about the unity in mind of the leader, Party and masses, the primal basis of the revolution, powerfully demonstrating the advantage of the socialist system and the inevitability of the triumph in the revolution.
In particular, the slogans “Live not merely for today but for tomorrow!” and “Push ahead through the thorny path in high spirits!” greatly inspired the people in their efforts to build a great prosperous powerful nation during the “Arduous March” and forced march.
The people of the DPRK will thoroughly implement the recently issued joint slogans and thus greet the 60th birthday of the WPK as a grand festival of victors.
