6.15 North Side Flays S. Korea's Suppression of Progressive Forces

Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the North Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration issued a statement Monday bitterly denouncing the south Korean puppet group's unprecedented frantic suppression of progressive democratic forces including pro-reunification movement organizations as an outright challenge to the desire and wish of south Koreans for the implementation of the declaration, democracy and independent reunification as well as a fascist action to prop up the dictatorial regime.

The statement said:

The puppet group is greatly upset by its crushing defeat in the "elections to local self-governing bodies" and the advance of progressive democratic forces including pro-reunification movement forces that has become dynamic in its wake. It is, therefore, working with bloodshot eyes to suppress them and step up its moves to escalate the confrontation with the DPRK in a bid to ensure "stable power" in the latter half of its office and the "Grand National Party's" stay in power. Those concerned of progressive pro-reunification movement organizations had legitimate working contacts with the DPRK after getting the approval of the authorities of the preceding regime. But the Lee Myung Bak group is treating them as criminals after the lapse of several years under false charges that they engaged in "secret maneuvers" at the "instructions" of someone. This proves how mad the group has become in suppression.

The puppet forces' reckless suppression reduced south Korea to a tundra of democracy in which elementary rights to see, listen and speak, to say nothing of having contacts with fellow countrymen, have been ruthlessly trampled down.

The puppet forces' frantic clampdown on progressive democratic forces is nothing but the last-ditch efforts of those at their death-beds due to the domestic and foreign policy failures, the collapse of the north-south relations and "ruling" crisis.

The more frantically the group of traitors kicks up the repressive campaign, contrary to the mind-set of people, the fiercer resistance it will meet from south Koreans and all other Koreans.

The puppet conservative group had better immediately stop the dastardly fascist suppression of the Solidarity for Progress and all other pro-reunification progressive democratic forces involving south Koreans from all walks of life.
