    Pyongyang, May 1 (KCNA) -- The working class and people of the DPRK who have created a shining heroic epic in safeguarding and building socialism holding President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il in high esteem are firmly determined to accomplish to the last the socialist cause of Juche under the ever-victorious banner of Songun. Rodong Sinmun Monday observes this in an editorial dedicated to May Day. It goes on:
    The heroic working class intensely loyal to the Party's cause is standing side by side with the People's Army, the main force of Songun revolution, in the van of the on-going worthwhile march demonstrating the dignity and invincible stamina of Korean-style socialism to the world.
    Whenever the imperialists became undisguised in their moves for aggression and the revolution faced a rigorous trial, the Korean working class defended the Party and the leader in a do-or-die spirit and made a breakthrough towards fresh progress and leap forward at every stage of socialist construction through uninterrupted great revolutionary surge.
    The indomitable fighting spirit like the Kanggye spirit was created in the period of "the Arduous March", forced march and torches were kindled in Songgang and Ranam to effect a new great revolutionary surge and all this is reminiscent of the period of great Chollima surge in the postwar period. It is the stirring reality possible only in the DPRK which enjoys the wise leadership of the great Party and has the most revolutionary and militant working class.
    Korean-style socialism will be ever-victorious in the future too, thanks to the revolutionary working class and other people who regard socialism as their life and soul. All the workers and other people should work harder to glorify the present Songun era as an era of fresh victory and prosperity under Korean-style socialism, carrying forward the proud tradition in which they took the lead in victoriously advancing the socialist cause under the leadership of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il. It is the invariable stand and will of the Party and people of the DPRK to boost solidarity with the world revolutionary people in their struggle for independence against imperialism and for socialism The working class and people of the DPRK will positively support and encourage the international working class and progressives in their struggle against aggression and war, domination and subjugation and for the building of an independent and friendly new world and dynamically push forward the victorious advance of the socialist cause shoulder to shoulder with them in the future, too.
