    Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- All the Koreans should wage a more dynamic struggle for independence against outside forces so as to defend the sovereignty of the nation and the peace of the country and successfully realize national unity and the cause of national reunification. Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says this in an editorial carried on the occasion of the 87th anniversary of the March 1 Popular Uprising. The March 1 Popular Uprising was an anti-Japanese patriotic struggle which proved that the Korean people were a people strong in the spirit of independence as they refused to be slaves of others and a brave and justice-loving people who fought against the aggressors and oppressors braving any sacrifices, the editorial notes, and goes on: Many years have passed since the uprising but the struggle of the Korean nation to put an end to the foreign aggression and domination and achieve the complete independence and sovereignty of the country and the nation is not over. It is the important task facing the Korean nation to oppose foreign forces' aggression and intervention, defend the sovereignty and security of the nation and achieve the independent reunification.
    The U.S. imperialists' hostile policy toward the DPRK and their moves to start a new war and intensify their domination over south Korea and their interference in its internal affairs are the main factor of encroaching upon the sovereignty and dignity of the Korean nation and blocking the peace of the country and its independent reunification.
    The Japanese reactionaries are escalating their vicious moves against the DPRK while zealously joining the U.S. in its moves to stifle the DPRK, far from making an apology and compensation for the crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists against the Korean nation in the past.
    The editorial calls for waging a dynamic patriotic movement for independent reunification, peace against war and great national unity under the banner of "By our nation itself" in order to check and frustrate foreign forces' brigandish moves for aggression and war and defend the sovereignty and security of the nation.
