S. Korean Regime's Crackdown on Pro-Reunification Forces under Fire
| Pyongyang, October 19 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea issued the following statement on Thursday:
It was disclosed that the south Korean military recently worked out a "standard teaching plan for the action against forces following the north" that labels the pro-reunification movement organizations and the progressive forces as "an enemy" and ordered all units, army recruit training centers and military education institutions to use it for "brainwashing." This fact is touching off towering resentment among south Koreans of different social standings.
The "standard teaching plan" reportedly signed by "Minister of Defense" Kim Kwan Jin defines the "forces following the north" as the "enemy of the army" as they are "enemy-benefiting forces blindly following the north's line". Worse still, likening them to "malignant virus," it labels the Solidarity for Implementing the South-North Joint Declaration, the South Headquarters of the Pan-national Alliance for Korea's Reunification, the Federation of University Students Councils, the Council for Promoting the Reunification of Our Nation by Federal Formula and four other progressive organizations for reunification "enemy-benefiting organizations".
What matters is that the "brainwashing" for antagonizing the progressive forces for reunification has been intensified at army units after traitor Lee Myung Bak blared in May that "the forces inside south Korea echoing the north's assertions pose a big problem."
This goes to prove that the distribution of the "standard teaching plan" is not a matter confined to the military only but a deliberate and premeditated scenario of the south Korean "government" authorities.
The Lee Myung Bak regime branded the people standing for the democratization of society and national reunification as "forces following the north." Not content with this, it labels them "its enemy." This hideous highhanded action goes to prove that the regime is nothing but a group of fascist gangsters and anti-reunification maniacs putting the former military dictatorial regimes into the shade.
The puppet regime's distribution of such "teaching plan" among the army units is no more than its last-ditch efforts to deter public enthusiasm to achieve reunification through alliance with the north from spreading to the puppet army and ensure the conservative regime's stay in power through the upcoming "presidential election". This was prompted by its very sinister and dangerous plot to hurl its soldiers into operations to crack down upon the pro-reunification patriotic forces.
It is widely known to the world that the Chun Doo Hwan military fascist junta put down at the point of bayonet the citizens of Kwangju City who took to street in demand of independence, democracy and reunification in May 1980 and the Lee Myung Bak regime has brutally cracked down on the pro-reunification forces that call for north-south reconciliation and cooperation by branding them as "enemy-benefiting organization."
In the final analysis, the repressive campaign kicked off by the Lee regime is an open declaration of a war against the progressive forces for reunification in south Korea and a dangerous prelude to the "second Kwangju bloodbath".
That is why south Koreans of different social standings are vehemently denouncing the regime's distribution of the "plan" and strongly demanding its immediate withdrawal.
The Lee Myung Bak regime fated to meet a miserable end, hit hard at home and abroad due to its madcap confrontation with fellow countrymen and unpopular rule, is now desperately seeking a way out, betraying its true colors as anti-reunification elements and fascists. This campaign, however, can never arrest the south Korean people's struggle for independence, democracy and reunification.
South Koreans from all walks of life should resolutely stand up against the conservative regime's repressive campaign against the "forces following the north" and sternly punish the group of traitors for challenging the countrymen's desire for reunification.
