Functions Held to Celebrate Day of Victory in War

Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) — Multifarious functions were held in the DPRK on the occasion of the 52nd anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War.

Evening galas of youths and students took place on the squares in front of the Tower of Juche Idea, the Monument to Party Founding, the Arch of Triumph, the Monument to Victory in the Fatherland Liberation War and other places in Pyongyang and in Phyongsong, Kanggye, Sariwon and Wonsan and other local cities of the country on July 27.

The participants danced to the tune of such songs as “Long Live Generalissimo Kim Il Sung,” “Our General Is Best,” “Thunder on Jong Il Peak,” ” July 27, Day of Our Victory ” “Song of Coastal Artilleryman,” “Let’s Meet on Front” and “Nilliri for Songun,” representing their greatest national pride of being blessed with leaders generation after generation.

The evening galas powerfully demonstrated the revolutionary faith and will of the Korean youths and students to display the invincible spirit of heroic Korea once again in the present stand-off with the U.S. under the Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il just as they emerged victorious in the confrontation with the U.S. in the 1950s and thus glorify the 60th anniversaries of the Workers’ Party of Korea and Korea’s liberation as the grand festivals of victors.
Youths and students of factories, enterprises and schools in various parts of the country including Pyongyang, South Hamgyong Province and North Phyongan Province separately held meetings with heroes of the Republic.

Heroes of the Republic and war veterans at the meetings said in an excited tone that the ever-victorious history of the homeland of Juche has been given steady continuity as Kim Jong Il is steering the Songun revolution.

Youths and students in their speeches and through their poem recitals expressed their firm will to eternally glorify the undying feats Kim Il Sung performed for the victory in the war and devote their youth to the national defence and the building of a great prosperous powerful socialist nation under the Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il.
Art performances were given at theatres in Pyongyang and local areas on the same occasion.
