Pyongyang, October 17 (KCNA) -- Rosy future is in store for the glorious Korean revolution which has won great victories and brought about epochal changes under the uplifted banner of the Down-with Imperialism Union, says Rodong Sinmun Sunday in an editorial.

It goes on:

President Kim Il Sung organized the Down-with-Imperialism Union (DIU) on October 17, Juche 15(1926), which was an epoch-making event in carrying out the Korean revolution and the human cause of independence.

The program of the DIU became the foundation of the program of the Workers' Party of Korea, the principle of independence put forward by the DIU served as the principle of the party building and activities and the revolutionaries of the new generation trained by the DIU grew to be backbone for founding the WPK. The praiseworthy appearance of the DIU is clearly reflected in the character and feature of the WPK.

The great vitality of the tradition of the DIU has been fully demonstrated in the protracted course of the Korean revolution.

Thanks to the valuable tradition provided by the DIU the WPK could develop into an ideologically pure entity, organizationally integral body and experienced and seasoned guiding force of the Songun revolution. Under the guidance of the WPK the DPRK could demonstrate its might as a power strong in policy and ideology, strong in military capability and modern in science and technology.

All the victories and successes achieved by the Korean people in the revolution and construction upholding the banner of the independence and single-minded unity were made in the course of embodying the idea of the DIU.

Steady adherence to the tradition of the DIU provides a sure guarantee for the eternal rosy future of the country and the revolution. This is a noble truth taught by the over 80 year-long history of the Korean revolution which has emerged victorious under the banner of the DIU.

At the recent Conference of the WPK General Secretary Kim Jong Il was reelected as its general secretary. It was a manifestation of the steadfast faith and will of the army and people of the DPRK to successfully inherit the invincible history of the Korean revolution and open a bright future of Songun Korea holding fast to the tradition of the DIU. Thanks to Kim Jong Il the high authority and the invincible might of the WPK giving a steady continuity to the tradition of the DIU are ensured and the rosy future of prosperity is in store for the DPRK.

Everyone should struggle more vigorously to accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche started from the DIU, rallied close around the WPK which leads the country and the revolution to victory with a great history and tradition, concludes the editorial.
