To Comrade Kim Jong Un
General Secretary
Korean Workers’ Party
Pyongyang, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

Esteemed Comrade Kim Jong Un,

We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, convey our warmest greetings of solidarity to you, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Korean people as we join the celebration of the 100th birth anniversary of the great revolutionary leader President Kim Il Sung on April 15, 2012. This is a highly significant day in Korea’s resplendent 5000-year history and is a strong inspiration to the peoples of the world.

All of us benefit from the ever lasting legacy of President Kim Il Sung of resolute and militant struggle for national independence, democracy, socialism and peace against Imperialism and all reaction. His revolutionary record of 70 years is as magnificent as Mt. Paektu, the ancestral home and bulwark of the Korean people. We firmly and fully support the continuance of his historic efforts to reunify Korea on the basis of independence, peace and unity.

Comrade Kim Il Sung excelled in fighting for the national liberation of the Korean people. He led victoriously revolutionary wars against Japanese imperialism and then against U.S. imperialism which unleashed a massive war of aggression. To achieve every victory, he mobilized the Korean people. He upheld working class leadership through the Korean Workers’ Party in completing the people’s democratic revolution and in carrying out socialist revolution and socialist construction in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in accordance with the principle of self-reliance.

Guided by his wise leadership and indomitable spirit, the Korean people scored great feats of achievements in the social, economic, political, cultural, scientific and educational fields under the banner of socialism. At the same time, they heroically withstood and overcame armed provocations, economic blockade and all kinds of pressures, interferences and maneuvers by the imperialists and their agents. In this regard, we support the Korean people in upholding, defending and further developing all the victories that they have won under the leadership of Kim Il Sung and his successors.

Comrade Kim Il Sung is a great revolutionary leader who is inspiring not only to the Korean people but to all the people of the world. His revolutionary ideas and deeds shed a powerful light on the road of revolution and mass struggles against imperialism and reaction. They are relevant and useful to the people of the world as they face the devastation being wrought by the grave crisis of the world capitalist system, involving the escalation of exploitation and oppression and the spread of state terrorism, fascism and wars of aggression.

We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, pay homage to the undying memory of President Kim Il Sung as a great leader and revolutionary fighter for national and social liberation. We are therefore resolved more than ever before to arouse, organize and mobilize the people of the world to fight for national independence, democracy, social justice, development, international solidarity and peace.

Long live the memory of the great leader Kim Il Sung!
Long live his legacy of revolutionary struggle and victories!
Long live the solidarity of the Korean people and world’s people!

In solidarity,
Prof. Jose Maria Sison
Chairperson
International Coordinating Committee
International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS)

CPP congratulates DPRK's anti-US defiance in launching rocket

Communist Party of the Philippines

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today congratulated the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) for successfully defying the US-led campaign of imperialist countries and their puppet states to stop it from launching a rocket to bring a civilian satellite into space to upgrade its communication and scientific infrastructure.

“After months of diplomatic, economic, political and military pressure exerted on the DPRK by the US-led imperialist countries, the DPRK defied all imperialist threats and today launched the Unha-3 rocket auspiciously timed to mark the 100th birth anniversary of its revolutionary anti-imperialist leader and first president Kim Il-Sung on April 16,” said the CPP.

The launch, however, was not a complete success as the DPRK announced that the rocket failed to break the earth’s atmosphere. The CPP pointed out that even the most advanced capitalist countries have encountered rocket-launch failures in the past, including the mid-flight explosion of the US Challenger Space Shuttle in 1986.

“The main issue at hand is that the DPRK has exhibited determination to continue with its rocket launch in accordance with its sovereign right to carry out the necessary scientific and technological advancements in order to address the growing needs of its people,” said the CPP.

“The defiance of the US-led imperialists exhibited by the DPRK, a relatively small independent nation, inspires the patriotism of the Filipino people and the peoples of the world who continue to suffer under the yoke of imperialist economic and political domination,” said the CPP.

“In having built another rocket to launch its second sattelite into orbit, the DPRK has also exhibited its achievements in the realm of rocket and space technology, putting to shame the US-led imperialists and their puppet states who have long sought to prevent the national development of the DRPK through economic and trade sanctions, diplomatic and political pressure and military subversion,” said the CPP.

“The achievements of the DPRK stand in stark contrast to the continuing economic backwardness of the Philippine semicolonial and semifeudal system that has long been under US domination,” said the CPP. “In contrast to the repeated success of the DPRK in building and launching a rocket, the Philippines cannot even independently build a decent car or a hand tractor for that matter.”

“To the detriment of the Filipino people, the Aquino regime has made a fool of itself in toeing the imperialist anti-DPRK propaganda and lining itself against the DPRK,” said the CPP. “If only to satisfy its imperialist masters, the Aquino regime resorted to making such big stupid publicity stunts as imposing no-fly and no-fishing zones in complete disregard of the economic impact especially on hundreds of thousands of subsistence fisherfolk in Northern and Central Luzon and the Bicol region.”
