Rodong Sinmun Calls for Starting Revolution in Literature and Arts of New Century of Juche
Pyongyang, May 16 (KCNA) -- The 9th national meeting of artistes to open here on Friday will mark a historic milestone in eternally glorifying the immortal feats President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il performed in the building of the Juche-oriented literature and arts and developing them into a powerful ideological weapon for the revolution and construction under the leadership of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK).

Rodong Sinmun Friday in an editorial calls for dynamically starting a revolution in literature and arts in the new century of Juche under the leadership of the WPK.

It goes on:

Now is the time to make a revolution in the field of literature and arts, the outposts of our party's ideological front, just as it was carried out in the 1970s to usher in a shining renascence in the Juche-oriented literature and arts and beat the drum for the revolution across the country.

The start of the revolution in literature and arts heralds a victory of the revolutionary ideological offensive and a dynamic advance of the drive for building a thriving nation.

This revolution is a prerequisite to resolutely foiling the imperialists' reactionary ideology and culture with a revolutionary ideological offensive and bringing about a sure victory in the struggle to defend socialism.

A victory is certain in the place where loud singing of the song of revolution is heard. This is the immutable truth proved by the history of the Korean revolution which has won one victory after another in the confrontation with U.S.-led imperialism,

Only when the writers and artistes create lots of famous works in the Songun era prevalent with the socialist ideology and the scent of socialist way of life, cherishing firmer faith than anyone else, Korean-style socialism will win only victories, deeply rooted among the people.

The editorial calls upon all creators and artistes to glorify the great Kim Jong Un's era by ushering in a heyday of the Juche-oriented literature and arts with noble aspiration and confidence, strong fighting spirit and creative work style.
