Rodong Sinmun Denounces S. Korean Authorities' Crackdown upon Railway Workers
Pyongyang, December 22 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet ruling forces are brutally cracking down on the railway workers in their strike against the privatization of the railway service.

Rodong Sinmun Sunday carries a commentary in this regard.

It goes on:

Shortly ago, the south Korean chief executive at a meeting of senior secretaries called for going ahead with the crackdown upon the strike until its roots are completely removed, terming it an unjustified group action.

Gentries of the "Saenuri Party" vied with one another, instigating the puppet authorities to strongly cope with the strike.

Encouraged by it, the fascist maniacs are arresting the core members of the railway trade union, searching their dwelling houses and offices and, at the same time, waging the racket of filing a suit against the participants in the strike and staging the wholesale dismissal of them.

The fascist violence by the south Korean authorities reminds one of the evil acts of the "yusin" dictator who mercilessly suppressed the workers to prevent them from organizing the union and launching a strike while crying out for "industrialization".

The strike of the south Korean railway workers is perfectly just as it is aimed at defending their elementary rights to existence and democratic rights.

But the south Korean authorities branded their struggle as an "illegal strike" at the first consultative meeting for public security after coming to power. They are escalating the crackdown upon the railway workers by mobilizing all the power organs.

This clearly reveals the despicable nature of the puppet forces as the hateful enemy of the people and heinous group of traitors only keen on the maintenance of "power".

The puppet ruling forces hell-bent on the unpopular rule and the revival of the "yusin" dictatorship while making a mockery of the people will certainly be made to pay a very high price for their acts of betraying the people.
