Every year the anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War is marked by the start of the month of solidarity with the Korean people. Last weekend NCP leader Andy Brooks joined other comrades and friends picketing the US embassy in London to demand an end to the American occupation of south Korea and the peaceful reunification of the country that has been divided since the end of the Korean War in 1953.
The protest was called by the Korean Friendship Association (KFA) and supported by the New Communist Party, to mark the 67th anniversary of the war that began with an attack by the Americans and their local lackeys on 25th June 1950 that started the conflict which has still to be resolved. Democratic Korea worked for the peaceful reunification of the Korean peninsula along the lines first laid down by great leader Kim Il Sung in 1973 for a Confederal Republic based on the principle of “one country, two systems”.
KFA Chair Dermot Hudson took the mike to point out that the US imperialists provoked the Korean War against the young Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and massacred millions of Korean people. They used biological and chemical weapons, and carried out terrible massacres of innocent civilians. American troops continue to occupy south Korea, exploiting and oppressing the Korean people, applying sanctions against the DPRK and threatening the people’s government with nuclear annihilation.
Dermot Hudson called for the full and total withdrawal of US troops from south Korea and the conclusion of a peace treaty between the DPRK and the USA.
