Pyongyang, April 19 (KCNA) -- Pyongyang-based papers today in articles dedicated to the 46th anniversary of the April 19 popular uprising call on the south Koreans to revive the soul and spirit of the April 19 uprisers and turn out in a sacred and patriotic struggle to drive the U.S. imperialists out of south Korea and realize reunification. The April 19 popular uprising was a mass anti-U.S., anti-fascist resistance of the south Koreans to overturn the colonial dictatorial system that was set up in south Korea by the U.S. imperialists and establish new politics and a new system and build a new life. Yun Song Sik, permanent member of the Consultative Council of Former South Korean Politicians in the North for the Promotion of Peace and Reunification, in an article contributed to Rodong Sinmun Wednesday wrote that the soul of the April 19 uprisers calls for overthrowing the traitorous Grand National Party in south Korea. He witnessed the uprising when he was a fourth-grade student of Konkuk University. He in the article noted that the independence, democracy and reunification so much desired by the uprisers have not yet come true. Even in this 21st century the U.S. imperialists are keeping their aggression troops in south Korea and instigating the pro-U.S. traitorous forces to block the independence and progress of the south Korean society and perpetrate rowdyism against reunification and the nation in a bid to realize their brigandish ambition to dominate the whole of Korea.
The adoption of the June 15 joint declaration paved a wide avenue for independent reunification on this land but the rash acts on the part of such group of traitors as the GNP are rendering the drive for the abolition of the "National Security Law", a draconic law against reunification, futile and blocking the advance of the people to realize the justice of the society.
The GNP group identical to its predecessors in its pro-U.S. flunkeyist mentality and unpopular nature is whetting its sword to restore fascist dictatorship in an effort to return to power.
This is, however, nothing but a foolish dream and a last-ditch effort of those who are marginalized by the strong trend of history.
Minju Joson in an article calls for realizing the desire, which the April 19 uprisers failed to achieve, through a patriotic movement for independent reunification, peace against war and the great national unity with main emphasis on the anti-U.S. struggle.
