Central Zoo Resembling "Natural Zoo"
Pyongyang, September 26 (KCNA) -- The Central Zoo located at the foot of Mt. Taesong in Pyongyang has been rebuilt.
The zoo has completely changed its looks through two-stage rebuilding.
Jong Ung, vice-director of the zoo, told KCNA:
The visitors to the zoo say with one voice that its conspicuous scenery reminds them of "a natural zoo"
Over sixty animal sheds and outing grounds with a total plottage of more than 90,000 square meters have been rebuilt in such a manner as to provide the animals with the best ecological environment while preserving natural beauty. And more than 7,000 trees have taken roots to cover the zoo with thicker verdure.
The area of the outing grounds has markedly increased and the iron fences around them have been replaced with broad segregating ditches.
The hippopotamus shed where a quiet lake spreads against the background of a wall decorated with fanciful trees measuring more than an arm's span around, the bear shed with an entrance looking like a hollow tree and other animal sheds give the impression of natural forests.
An elevated bridge has been thrown outside the outing ground of beasts of prey, which is divided into areas of rocks, woods and wading pool.
Visitors sink deeply into a world of nature, while enjoying from the elevated bridge a panoramic view of the life of "kings of mountains" frisking freely, not the erstwhile "meek savage beasts" which lived in narrow sheds.
The animal sheds also present peculiar looks.
Overhead windows have been made in animal sheds so as to see animal ecology as in outdoors, while lengthening the life span of the animals by using sunlight. And the viewing corridors and animal rooms have been screened with glass.
The happy looks of the working people visiting the Central Zoo which has assumed a splendid appearance under the popular policy of the government add to the pride of those working in "the natural zoo".

Big Campaign for Abolition of Part-Time Job Staged in S. Korea
Pyongyang, September 26 (KCNA) -- Members of more than 400 civic and public organizations and figures from all walks of life in south Korea staged an action titled "10,000 people's declaration and action" in demand of the abolition of the part-time job in Seoul on Sept. 23.
The "preparatory committee for the 2nd action day to build a society without part-time job" held a press conference in front of Jogye Temple at which it made public a "declaration of 10,000 people for the abolition of part-time job."
The declaration said that in the south Korean society the workers were forced to lead an inhuman life no better than the life of a slave due to the miserable lot of being part-time workers, urging the "government" to meet as early as possible the demands of the part-time workers who have struggled for the right to existence for a long period and completely abolish the part-time job at all work sites.
The evening of the same day witnessed a "10,000-man candlelight cultural event to build a society without part-time job" at Chonggye Plaza.

They called upon all people to turn out in the struggle to abolish the part-time job in the same spirit as they held high candlelight in protest against the American beef import.

At the conference speakers recalled that the suppression of the organization has been intensified since Lee Myung Bak came to power, noting that it is an anachronistic act to invoke "the National Security Law" against the progressive organizations under the pretext that they stand in the way of maintaining the regime.
Then a declaration signed by at least 430 personages of different social standings in demand of the nullification of the decision was read out.
The declaration said that Hanchong has struggled to solve the issue of social democracy, young people's unemployment, vital rights and other problems since its formation, terming the crackdown upon the organization an anti-reunification act of going against the trend of the times toward reconciliation and cooperation and blocking activities for democracy on this land.
It is impossible to achieve the reunification of the country, if just activities for reunification should be branded as an "enemy-benefiting acts", the declaration held, urging the judicial authorities to make a proper judgment in favor of the patriotic youth organization.
