Pyongyang, May 1 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun Monday runs an article to May Day.
The article says:
May Day is related to the large demonstration of workers in Chicago, the U.S., in demand of 8-hour work. The struggle jolted not only the society in the U.S. but also the whole capitalist society as it was an eruption of pent-up resentment and anger of the exploited working masses against the unlimited exploitation and oppression of capitalists.
One century and dozens of years have passed since then. However, the wishes of the working masses to protect genuine labor rights and right to existence and enjoy independent and creative life have not come true yet.
Struggle for existence by jungle law prevails as the main law in socio-economic life, a tiny handful of privileged classes lawfully exploit majority of the working masses in the capitalist society owing to the inevitable systematic contradictions. It is because of the imperialist reactionaries challenging to the developing era and history with more cunning method vociferating about the eternity of capitalism.
The constructive ills of unpopular capitalist economic system are a factor threatening the vital rights of working people at every moment.
Labor rights are the most elementary rights for existence of human being.
But in the capitalist countries, the number of people wandering streets without jobs is increasing as the days go by.
Where there is exploitation and oppression, there will be resistance.
Capitalism is finding itself in deeper ruin owing to the ever-worsening politico-economic crisis resulting from its self-constructive contradiction and the unpopular exploiting system in face of the struggle of the broad working masses.
It is as clear as noonday that the way-out of the working masses of the world lies in the struggle and the doom of capitalism is inevitable.
