Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

    Pyongyang, February 28 (KCNA) -- A grand march of participants in the meeting of the young vanguard of Songun and youth and students in Pyongyang was held here on Feb. 27. They thronged Kim Il Sung Square, the starting point of the march.
    Kim Jung Rin, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, officials concerned and members of the delegation of Korean youth and students from Japan who had taken part in the meeting were present.
    Kim Kyong Ho, first secretary of the Central Committee of the Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League, in his report called on the participants in the meeting to fully display the strength and patriotic zeal of hot-blooded youngsters in the grand march for the Songun revolution to scale the high peak of a great prosperous powerful nation under the uplifted banner of the Juche idea as they pledged to leader Kim Jong Il.
    The reporter underscored the need for all the participants in the meeting and other young men and women to demonstrate once again the immutable faith and will of the Korean youth to unswervingly follow the road of the Songun revolution under the leadership of Kim Jong Il through this general march.
    Then the march began.
    They marched past the rostrum in fine array to the tune of "Song of the Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League," following flags bearing portraits of President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
    The paraders marched toward the Party Founding Museum and the Arch of Triumph holding placards reading "Let us become young heroes in the worthwhile struggle to glorify the Kim Jong Il era!", "Let the entire party and army and all the people unite in single mind and strikingly demonstrate the might of Songun!" and red flags.
    Citizens waved their hands towards the marchers.
