Folk Tradition Carried forward in Korea

Crime-woven "Governor-General Rule" of Japanese Imperialists

   Pyongyang, September 25 (KCNA) -- Ninety-eight years have passed since the Japanese imperialists enforced the brutal "governor-general rule" in Korea. But the Korean nation still remembers their pernicious barbarities.
    The Japanese imperialists set up their "residence-general" in Korea after occupying it at the point of the bayonet in the early 20th century and exercised a vicious "governor-general rule" to intensify their colonial domination over it.
    They authorized the "governor-general" of Korea to exercise the supreme authority of colonial rule in all fields including legislation, judicature, administration and military affairs.
    The "governor-general" had the "right to regulate law" by which he could institute and enforce "laws" if necessary and a prerogative of command over the Japanese army present in Korea. This illustrates the sphere of his political authority.
    The Japanese imperialists, who regulated that the "governor-general" had the absolute right to colonial rule, seated as the first "governor-general" of Korea Terauchi notorious among warlords of Japan for barbarity while setting up the "governor-general" ruling machinery.
    Terauchi had no sooner been appointed as the "governor-general" than raved that the Koreans should be subjected to the laws of Japan or be killed. He perpetrated harsh tyranny and pillage against the Korean nation in a vicious way.
    The Japanese imperialists shipped their army, gendarmes and police into Korea en masse for the purpose of intensifying their "governor-general rule" and thus turned Korea into a giant prison. Meanwhile, they arrested and slew Koreans right and left by concocting many mediaeval evil laws.
    During the "governor-general rule", the Japanese imperialists were hell-bent on converting Korea into their sources of raw materials and commodity market.
    They promulgated the "Land Survey Act" in August 1912 under the pretext of "Land Survey Project" to seize a huge acreage of arable land by fraudulent and brutal means under the name of "nationalization" of land. They also robbed Korea of its abundant natural resources in a gangster-like way by instituting the "Korean Mining Act" and "Fishery Act".
    Immeasurable are the crimes committed in Korea by the Japanese imperialists during their rule.
    No matter how much water flows under the bridge, the Japanese imperialists' crime-woven "governor-general rule" over Korea can neither be covered up nor be erased. Japan should honestly apologize and make reparation to the Korean people for its past crimes.

Anniversary of Kim Jong Il's Work Observed

   Pyongyang, September 25 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Thursday dedicates a signed article to the anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's publication of famous work "Let Us March Forward Dynamically along the Road of Socialism and Communism under the Unfurled Banner of the Anti-Imperialist Struggle".
    The work published on Sept. 25, Juche 76 (1987), serves as an immortal guiding principle for winning the victory in the cause of independence against imperialism in the present times, the article says, and goes on:
    It serves as an undying banner powerfully encouraging and propelling the anti-imperialist and anti-U.S. struggle in the present era and as guidelines for waging the struggle for the victory of the cause of socialism to the end with the faith in socialism.
    The publication of the work helped the revolutionary people turn out more vigorously in the anti-imperialist struggle with a correct understanding of the character of modern imperialism, the inevitability of its downfall and unchangeable aggressive and predatory nature of imperialism.
    Imperialism is destined to go to its final ruin but it does not fall itself. Only through a resolute anti-imperialist struggle of the working masses is it possible to bring imperialism to its doom. This is the main idea that runs through the work.
    Importance should be attached to the army and military capability be boosted. This is the way of winning a decisive victory in the showdown with imperialism and the U.S. by taking the initiative in frustrating the moves of the U.S. imperialists for aggression.
    The banner of Songun held aloft by the Worker's Party of Korea represents the most striking manifestation of the anti-imperialist fighting spirit and the revolutionary stand.
    The work serves as the essential guiding principle to be always held fast in dynamically pushing ahead with the anti-imperialist struggle and socialist construction.
    Kim Jong Il stressed in the work that what is of decisive significance in bringing imperialism to its ruin and achieving victory in the revolution is to build a strong driving force of the revolution and strengthen the party, the vanguard of the revolution, and increase its role, in particular.
    He set forth an original idea of firmly building the driving force of the revolution with a revolutionary army as its core and main force for the first time in history on the basis of deep analysis of the development of the times and changed social and class relations in recent years. The historic exploits he has performed by setting an example of epoch-making significance in strengthening the driving force of the revolution as required by the developing reality and the change of the social and class relations will always remain shining in the history of the socialist movement.

U.S. Accused of Massively Beefing up Its Aggression Forces in and around Korea

   Pyongyang, September 25 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists are now massively beefing up their naval and air forces and rapid task forces in south Korea and around the Korean Peninsula to stifle the DPRK by force of arms, according to a military source.
    On Sept. 25 the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces deployed nuclear-powered carrier George Washington in their Yokosuka naval base in Japan. Earlier, the U.S. army made a final decision to dispatch 4,200 more troops to the Pacific.
    Shortly ago, the U.S. imperialists deployed one more squadron of F-22A in Alaska and B-52Hs on Guam to be always ready to go into action, both places believed to be main bases for striking the DPRK.
    In the meantime, the U.S. imperialists decided to keep 3,500 troops of their aggression forces, a squadron of F-16 and a squadron of helicopters in south Korea although they had been expected to be withdrawn from it by the end of this year. They are contemplating transferring more than 60 fighter bombers of the fifth generation with a Stealth function including 21 F-15Ks, F-22A, F-35, etc., and hundreds of the latest type air-to-ground cruise missiles to the south Korean puppet armed forces to be deployed for an actual war.
    Fighter bombers, pursuit and assault planes, refueling tankers and commanding planes of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces are being transferred from other areas and deployed in the U.S. air force bases in south Korea one after another.
    The U.S. massive deployment of its naval and air forces in and around south Korea proves that the war scenario to make a surprise preemptive attack on the DPRK has been rounded off through various war exercises, big or small, including Key Resolve, Foal Eagle and Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises, and it has entered the phase of its implementation.
    What should not be overlooked is that while massively amassing troops and latest type war hardware in south Korea and around the Korean Peninsula the U.S. imperialists are opening to media that these troops and war hardware are the aggression forces to be hurled into the Korean Peninsula in "contingency."
    In much publicizing the transfer and deployment of forces and the reinforcement of war means, baffling common sense, they seek the sinister purpose of demonstrating their "might" in a bid to give psychological "shock" and create mental "horror" so as to realize their scenario for aggression with ease.
    The United States should not misunderstand the will of the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK but drop at once its aggressive hostile policy towards it.

Police Fascist Crackdown Flayed in S. Korea

   Pyongyang, September 25 (KCNA) -- A rally and a demonstration were staged in Kyonggi Province of south Korea on Sept. 21 to denounce the puppet police authorities' fascist crackdown upon the struggle against the expansion of the military training ground in Mugon-ri.
    Attending the rally held outside the Phaju police station were members of civic and public organizations, including the Inhabitants Measure Committee against the Expansion of the Drill Ground in Mugon-ri, the Joint Measure Committee of Civic and Public Organizations for Checking the Expansion of the Drill Ground in Mugon-ri, the People for Achieving Peace and Reunification, the Solidarity for Progress of south Korea and the south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions, and inhabitants in Ohyon-ri.
    Speakers at the rally accused the police of walking off residents in Ohyon-ri and members of civic and public organizations who turned out in the struggle against the expansion of the drill ground in Mugon-ri and of claiming warrants of arrest for two members of the Joint Measure Committee of Civic and Public Organizations for Checking the Expansion of the Drill Ground in Mugon-ri on the charge of "interference with a government official in the execution of special duties".
    Such reckless action of the police is an open threat designed to put down the struggle against the expansion of the drill ground in Mugon-ri, they said.
    Not content with offer of the land of Phyongthaek to the U.S. forces, the authorities are granting even the drill ground in Mugon-ri, they charged, expressing the determination to struggle to the last against the authorities' moves for expansion of the drill ground in Mugon-ri.
    Then, the participants staged the demonstration. They conducted information activities of exposing the injustice of the said moves, calling upon the people to turn out in the struggle against the expansion of the drill ground in Mugon-ri.

    A message of greetings to Kim Jong Il was adopted at a meeting held in Germany.

Criminal "politica de gobernador general" de Japon sobre Corea

   Pyongyang, 25 de septiembre (ATCC) -- Aunque transcurrieron 98 anos desde la puesta en practica en Corea de la "politica de gobernador general" de los imperialistas japoneses, las barbaridades cometidas en virtud de esta siguen frescas en la memoria de la nacion coreana.
    Tras ocupar a Corea con las fuerzas armadas a principios del siglo 20, los imperialistas japoneses instalaron la "regencia general" que fue sustituida luego por el "gobierno general" para arreciar el colonialismo sobre toda Corea.
    El "gobernador general" japones era la maxima autoridad de la dominacion colonial en las esferas legislativa, judicial, administrativa y militar, etc.
    En aquel tiempo, se incluian en sus grandes facultades politicas el derecho a instituir y proclamar las leyes en cualquier momento cuando lo considerase necesario y el control militar con que podia movilizar cuando quiera al ejercito japones estacionado en Corea.
    Mientras se establecian los aparatos para el sistema de "gobernador general", asumio por primera vez este cargo Terauchi conocido como el mas feroz militarista de Japon.
    Tan pronto como fuera designado, Terauchi dijo que los "coreanos deben obedecer a la ley de Japon o morirse si no lo quieren" y perpetro la brutal represion y saqueo contra la nacion coreana.
    Para intensificar la "politica de gobernador general", los imperialistas japoneses introdujeron en Corea un gran numero de efectivos, gendarmes y policias japoneses convirtiendola en una gran carcel.
    Por otra parte, inventaron incontables leyes infames de caracter medieval, en virtud de las cuales fueron detenidos y asesinados salvajemente muchos coreanos.
    Cuando se practicaba la referida politica, ellos actuaron freneticamente para convertir a Corea en la abastecedora de materias primas y en el mercado de la venta de mercancias de Japon.
    Bajo el pretexto del "censo de la tierra", proclamaron la "ley" sobre esta materia en agosto de 1912 y usurparon con engano, fraude y metodos gangsteriles incalculables tierras calificandolas de "propiedades estatales".
    Igualmente, fraguaron la "ley de mineria de Corea" y la "ley de pesca" que contribuyeron al saqueo desmesurado de los ricos recursos naturales de Corea.
    Japon debe pedir disculpas con sinceridad e indemnizar sin falta al pueblo coreano por esos crimenes imposibles de ocultar ni borrar aunque transcurrieron muchos siglos.
