Joint New Year Editorial Puts Forward Slogan for Whole Party, Army and People
Pyongyang, January 1 (KCNA) -- The joint New Year editorial of Rodong Sinmun, Joson Inmingun and Chongnyon Jonwi says this year is the year of a grand march, when a new century of Kim Il Sung's Korea begins.

Noting that the march in the new century of the Juche era is the continuation of the revolutionary march that started up on Mt. Paektu, it goes on:

Steadfast is the will of our service personnel and people to adorn our revolution, pioneered by Kim Il Sung and whose victory after victory they won following Kim Jong Il, with eternal victory following the leadership of Kim Jong Un. The guide of hope in the march in the new century is the great revolutionary ideas of the great persons of Mt. Paektu, and the treasured swords for sure victory are the courageous mettle of the brilliant commanders of Paektu and their way of offensive. We must follow to the end the road of independence, the road of Songun and the road to socialism pioneered by Kim Il Sung, so as to ensure that the history of revolutionary activities of Kim Il Sung and the history of Songun-based revolutionary leadership of Kim Jong Il continue without interruption.

The centenary of the birth of Kim Il Sung is a major, important occasion for displaying the might of Korea, which is advancing bravely towards the world standards, and a grand revolutionary festival, which will demonstrate the steadfast continuity of the revolution in Korea, which stoutly carries forward one ideology and one bloodline.

"Glorify this year 2012 as a year of proud victory, a year when an era of prosperity is unfolding, true to the instructions of the great General Kim Jong Il!"– this is the militant slogan the whole Party, the entire army and all the people should uphold this year.
