The People’s Democratic Party held a rally and a demo in Seoul on Nov. 20, calling for the liquidation of evils, social drastic reform, conclusion of a peace pact between the DPRK and the U.S. and withdrawal of the U.S. forces from south Korea.
They stressed the need to drive the GIs out of south Korea by efforts of popular masses and replace the Armistice Agreement with a peace pact and build a new society in which the Korean nation lives by its concerted efforts.
South Korea has purchased the U.S.-made weaponry and conducted war games owing to the U.S. pressure, it has offered upkeep expense for the GIs and the U.S. has lined its pocket by the expense of upkeep, they charged.
Saying a danger of war is looming contrary to the will of candlelight resistance, they noted that they should wage a strong action for uprooting the evils and build a peaceful society by liquidating the conservative forces.
The current government is conducting war exercises against north Korea, while supporting Trump who is escalating the danger of war in the Korean Peninsula by spouting a string of war, they denounced.
They called for launching a vigorous drive to build a new society in which the popular masses are masters of it and withdraw the U.S. forces after concluding peace accord between the DPRK and the U.S.
A touch-and-go situation is lingering on in the Korean Peninsula after end of unheard-of war games against north Korea with involvement of three U.S. nuclear carrier strike groups, Trump forced south Korea to pay funds spent during the war exercises to evade the political crisis and he squeezed 22 billion US$ extracted from the people’s tax during his trip to Seoul, a statement issued in the rally charged.
At the end of the rally, the participants marched as far as the building of the “government” with placards and handouts written “Eradication of evils!, No war!”, “Rejection of foreign interference!, National cooperation!” and “U.S., leave south Korea with THAAD!”, carrying pictures depicting anti-U.S. feelings and no war games targeted north Korea.
