GFTUK Supports S. Korean Railway Workers' Strike
Pyongyang, December 19 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Central Committee of the General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea (GFTUK) in a statement Thursday expressed support and solidarity with the south Korean railway workers in their just general strike against the puppet regime's unpopular rule.

The statement termed the strike an explosion of the towering grudge against the puppet authorities which seek to reduce workers into slaves of comprador capital and foreign monopoly capital and leave the issue of the livelihood of the toiling masses to the tender mercy of bloodsuckers keen on the unethical competition of capital, and a quite just struggle to defend the right to existence and the democratic right.

The fascist suppression by the puppet regime reminds one of the "yusin" dictatorship decades ago which earned an ill fame for harsh crackdown on workers. Traitor Park Chung-Hee, "yusin" dictator, suppressed workers to prevent them from forming unions and launching strikes while crying out for "industrialization", the statement said, and went on:

Running ski-high now is the resentment of south Koreans of all social standings against the puppet regime's undemocratic and unpopular rule aimed at reviving the "yusin" fascist dictatorship.

The past one year brought home to the south Korean workers the truth that they have to turn out in the struggle to defend justice and truth, regain the dignity and the right to existence and bring about new democratic society.

The struggle for the resignation of the "government" has now become irresistible mindset of the people and the trend of the times.

The present regime will never be able to evade ruin being cursed by the south Koreans just as the "yusin" dictatorship met a miserable end.

The struggle of south Koreans for justice and truth will surely triumph.

All the workers in the DPRK will always stand by the south Korean workers and all other people in their struggle to win the right to existence and democratization of society against the revival of the "yusin" dictatorship.
