Amid the mounting anger and indignation of all the Korean people against the US imperialists and the south Korean puppet traitors hell-bent on reckless manoeuvres to unleash a nuclear war against the DPRK, the number of young people who volunteer to turn out in the sacred struggle for defending the country is increasing day by day.
As of March 19, over 1.4 million young people across the country volunteered to join and rejoin the Korean People’s Army.
Volunteers held gatherings every day in all parts of the country.
They signed the petitions to join and rejoin the KPA with the pledge of heroic youth to deal merciless crushing blows of punishment to the enemies bringing dark clouds of a nuclear war while crying about “occupation of Pyongyang” and achieve victory in the great war for national reunification before others.
Over 950 000 working people from the Kim Chaek Iron and Steel Complex, the Namhung Youth Chemical Complex, the Sunchon Area Youth Coal-mining Complex, the Pyongyang General Electric Cable Factory 326, Oguk Farm in Anak County and other industrial establishments and farms, and over 180 000 in North Phyongan Province volunteered to join and rejoin the KPA.
Not only university students but those of senior middle schools across the country expressed their will to join the struggle to defeat the aggressors, holding rifles in their hands as the children’s vanguard members did during the Fatherland Liberation War.
