Still fighting for Korea’s liberation: An interview with Comrade Ahn Hak-sop

‘In 1952, I came here to liberate the southern half of the peninsula, and I need to stay here and continue that struggle.’ Derek Ford Subscribe to our  channel A veteran of the Korean Fatherland Liberation war who spent 42 years in south Korean jails under the most brutal conditions, Comrade Ahn Hak-sop refused to recant his communist affiliation, withstanding all kinds of torture over many decades. Although two other ‘unconverted’ comrades who were finally released went north, Comrade Ahn remains in south Korea, a living example to his struggling people and the embodiment of their determination to see their country fully liberated and reunited. This interview is reproduced from Liberation School, with thanks. ***** Ahn Hak-sop was an officer in the Korean...

DPRK tells UN of its need to ‘urgently build up self-defence capabilities’

North Korean ambassador reports on the difficulties faced and overcome by people’s Korea and challenges the UN to live up to its supposed role. DPRK Embassy Subscribe to our  channel Despite having to devote considerable resources to defending itself against ever more aggressive and escalatory nuclear threats, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea nevertheless continues to score victories in modernisation of agriculture and industry and in improving the lives of its people on every front. The DPRK, with its small territory but united population, is living proof of the superiority of a planned economy, which has enabled the country to overcome huge obstacles despite the genocidal military and economic actions of the imperialists, who have tried everything to crush th...

Russia, North Korea Stage ‘Strategic Coup’ Against Western Hegemony

PEPE ESCOBAR  It will take ages to unpack the silos of information inbuilt in the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok last week, coupled with the – armored – train-keeps-a-rollin’ conducted by North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un straddling every nook and cranny of Primorsky Krai. The key themes all reflect the four main vectors of the New Great Game as it’s being played across the Global South: energy and energy resources; manufacturing and labor; market and trade rules; and logistics. But they go way beyond – exploring the subtle nuances of the current civilizational war. https://t.me/geopolitics_live/5330?embed=1 So Vladivostok presented… – A serious debate on the surge of anti-neocolonialism, presented for instance by the Myanmar delegation; geostrategically, Burma/Mya...

North Korea spurns talks offer from ‘gangster-like Americans’

Pyongyang has insisted the country’s nuclear program cannot be stopped FILE PHOTO: North Korea's Kim Yo-jong arrives at a 2018 Olympics ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea. ©  Patrick Semansky - Pool /Getty Images North Korea has dismissed a US proposal for talks as a ploy, accusing Washington of provoking conflict in the region while holding out false hope that it can persuade Pyongyang to halt its nuclear weapons program by temporarily easing sanctions or suspending military exercises. Kim Yo-jong, North Korea’s foreign policy chief and sister of leader Kim Jong-un, said on Monday that the best way to ensure peace and stability on the Korean peninsula is for Pyongyang to amply display its military might, “rather than solving the problem with the gangste...

The Korean War Continues With Biden’s Renewal of Travel Ban to North Korea

BY AMANDA YEE General Douglas MacArthur, UN Command CiC (seated), observes the naval shelling of Incheon from USS Mount McKinley, 15 September 1950 On August 22, the U.S. State Department renewed its ban on the use of U.S. passports for travel to North Korea. This travel ban prohibits as many as 100,000 Korean Americans living in the United States from visiting their relatives in North Korea. The ban was first set in place by the Trump administration in 2017, and—in spite of Korean American activists’ repeated calls to lift the draconian ban—has been renewed annually since. During his presidential campaign in 2020, Joe Biden had promised to “reunite Korean Americans separated from loved ones in North Korea for decades,” but has extended the travel ban each...

It is NOT north Korean BUT US nuclear weapons which threaten the world

Imperialism is the root cause of instability and war in the world. Koreans are right to defend themselves. KCNA Subscribe to our  channel This article is reproduced from the Korean Central News Agency with thanks. ***** At the first session of the preparatory committee for the 11th Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) review conference, the USA and its vassal forces unreasonably criticised the DPRK’s nuclear deterrent for self-defence as a “threat” to international peace and security and to the nuclear non-proliferation system. In this regard, the DPRK permanent mission to the United Nations office and international organisations in Vienna makes public the following press release: As for any threat to international peace and ...

North Korea says US soldier defected because of racism

Private Travis King crossed the DMZ checkpoint while on a civilian tour FILE PHOTO: A portrait of American soldier Travis King ©  AP / Morry Gash An American soldier who walked into the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea last month did so deliberately, seeking refuge from “racial discrimination” in the US, state news agency KCNA said on Wednesday. “During the investigation, Travis King confessed that he had decided to come over to the DPRK as he harbored ill feeling against inhuman maltreatment and racial discrimination within the US Army,” KCNA said. “He also expressed his willingness to seek refuge in the DPRK or a third country, saying that he was disillusioned at the unequal American society.” King is still being investigated ...

Nuclear war is inevitable – North Korea

The US should abandon its “hostile” policy if it is truly interested in dialogue, Pyongyang believes FILE PHOTO. ©  Global Look Press / US Space Force The world is just a step away from nuclear conflict, North Korean Defense Minister General Kang Sun-nam ewarned in a statement made public on Tuesday and presented at the Moscow International Security Conference. The official blamed Washington’s desire for regime change in Pyongyang for ratcheting up tensions. He also accused the US of increasing its military presence in the region by deploying nuclear-capable aircraft and a submarine to the area. “Now, the question is not if a nuclear war breaks out on the Korean Peninsula, but who starts it when,” Kang warned. In this year alone, the US sent “massi...

Seventy Years On: Remembering Korea’s Pain

Photograph Source: SJ Yang – CC BY-SA 2.0 Amidst these precarious times, where our humanity is continuously put to the test, nothing holds greater importance than our inflexible dedication to pursuing peace. However, it is truly enraging to witness self-proclaimed guardians of peace traversing the globe, stoking the flames of conflict in countries such as Ukraine and sabotaging any attempts at negotiations between warring factions. The inferno of war, which once consumed distant lands, now threatens to engulf the Asian continent again. The impending doom looms, and it is only a matter of time before an Asian nation succumbs to the whims of a deluded comedian, masquerading as a false hero, playing with the lives...

DPRK pledges firm support for Russia

Kim Yo Jong affirms her country’s solidarity while highlighting the futile criminality of the USA’s proxy war in Ukraine. Workers Party of Korea While many countries have refused to give open support to the US war effort, showing a clear turn away from the era when it could dominate and bully most of the world, the DPRK is among only a handful of brave states that have openly and at every turn given their full and unconditional support to Russia’s just war in defence of its sovereignty and independence. https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/1500233164%3Fsecret_token%3Ds-Jym6jGLPXdH&color=%23ff5500&inverse=false&auto_play=false&show_user=true The following press statement was issued by Kim Yo Jong, vice-department director of t...
