Rodong Sinmun Calls for Realizing Desire of Participants in April 3 Popular Uprising
Pyongyang, April 3 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Tuesday carries a bylined article on the lapse of 64 years since the south Koreans' April 3 Popular Uprising on Jeju Island.

The uprising was a righteous popular resistance against the U.S. and fascism to free south Korea from outsiders' domination and subjugation and a patriotic action that demonstrated the south Koreans' indomitable will and stamina to achieve the reunification of the country, the article says, and goes on:

The Jeju islanders' bloody resistance taught all Koreans a lesson that they should fight against the aggressors and traitors to the last.

More than 60 years have passed since the resistance on Jeju Island, but its participants' desire has not yet come true. It is attributable to the U.S. domination over south Korea and its policy of aggression on the DPRK and its lackeys pro-U.S. conservative forces' fascist dictatorship and confrontation with fellow countrymen.

It is absolutely impossible to realize the desire and wishes of the south Korean people for social independence and democracy and national reunification unless a courageous mass struggle is waged in south Korea to terminate the U.S. domination and presence and the pro-U.S. conservative group's fascist rule.

The article calls on all south Koreans to turn out in a mass campaign for putting an end to the U.S. domination and the conservative group's traitorous rule by reviving the indomitable fighting spirit and patriotic stamina displayed by the resistance fighters of Jeju Island and thus realize their desire without fail with the might of unity.
