People with Steadfast Class-Consciousness against Imperialism Are Sure to Win: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, April 4 (KCNA) — The will of the army and people of the DPRK to carry on the class struggle against imperialism is getting stronger after the National Defence Commission of the DPRK in a statement declared its principled stand on the U.S. hostile policy towards the DPRK, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in an article.
It goes on:
With no class struggle against imperialism the revolution can not advance. The class struggle against imperialism is, in essence, a war of ideology.
Victory in the class struggle belongs to those strong in mental strength.
It is the steadfast stand of the Workers’ Party of Korea to heighten to the maximum the anti-imperialist class consciousness among all the service personnel and people, and thus mercilessly smash the anti-DPRK moves of the U.S. imperialists and all the class enemies.
From the outset, the Korean revolution has victoriously advanced in the arduous class struggle against imperialism.
Korean socialism is an impregnable fortress which has been defended with the brilliant tradition of the class struggle against imperialism as its roots.
The militant group capable of playing an important role in the class struggle at the present times is the revolutionary army standing in the forefront of showdown with imperialism, taking hold on arms.
Much upset by the regular rocket-launching drills of Strategic Force units of the Korean People’s Army, the U.S. is committing grave military provocations against the DPRK, resorting to unspeakable invectives against it.
The more intensive the counterrevolutionary offensive of imperialism gets, the more steadfast the class consciousness of the Korean people gets.
The DPRK’s nuclear deterrence remains strong. The anti-imperialist class consciousness of the Korean people remains unchanged, either.
The class position of the DPRK is a cornerstone of victory and prosperity which has been further consolidated under the guidance of the Party and the leader.
The Party’s experience in the drive to heighten the class consciousness among the people teaches that victory in the anti-imperialist class struggle lies in thoroughly applying the principle of Songun.

can an austrlian explain this to me thnks
1788 was the year Australia was ‘settled’ which is a word here that means ‘invaded by white people’ and like it’s a pretty great country nowadays except for the fact that when you bring this up and the fact that it’s had horrible, horrible continuing effects on our indigenous population like in the early 1900s they started up a thing called the Aborigine’s protection act which sounds nice but they used to literally STEAL CHILDREN ‘FOR THEIR OWN GOOD’ and then in 2000 AS IN LIKE FOURTEEN FUCKING YEARS AGO they were like ‘was there really a stolen generation tho lol like i mean it wasn’t that many kids i mean we can hardly call it a generation lmao’
literally the people in power sort of tend to stick their fingers in their ears and go LALALALALALLALALALALALALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU Australia is actually so fucked up on this front it’s really gross
but yeah a lot of people call australia day ‘invasion day’ and for good reason we have a pretty shitty past that doesnt get talked about like literally all we learned in school about pre-1788 was ‘the aboriginals walked around and did stuff like there was the dreamtime and stories and stuff’ I could go on but that’s it in a nutshell
What do you mean they “used” to steal children in “a pretty shitty past”
Published as of 2013: More Aboriginal children are being taken into foster care now than during the ‘Stolen Generations.’
This exact same headline has been running in North American newspapers, delineating the exact same “phenomenon.” Just replace ‘Aboriginal’ with ‘Native’, and ‘Stolen Generations' with 'Residential Schools' if you wanna get specific, but in reality they're just synonyms of the same epidemic.
As it is in Australia, as it is Canada, as it is the U.S., as it is in every nation and region that white Europeans have invaded, ripped up, and colonized.
Of course the number indigenous children in foster care today far outnumber the heights of the Stolen Generations and Residential Schools combined. Every class bastard knows this. Bio spawn should probably get a clue by now.
Just don’t talk about this shit as if it were in the past. Cuz it’s not.
A photograph from the 1870’s showing tens of thousands of bison skulls. They were mass slaughtered by the U.S. Army to make room for cattle and force Native American tribes into starvation.
Mass slaughter of buffalo and bison took place in Canadian territory as well, and was part of a deliberate campaign to break Indigenous resistance to (further) settler incursions onto Native land and the railroad. The removal of the buffalo also meant that when it came time to sign treaties, the Canadian government could more or less set any terms it saw fit and Indigenous leaders basically had to comply with them or their people would freeze and starve (that’s if gov officials even bothered to translate the actual terms of the treaty at all).
The “disappearance” of the buffalo is narrativized as part of a larger myth surrounding the “disappearing Indian” whose absence clears the land for the incoming white pioneers to take their place. The murder, destruction, slaughter of bison and buffalo was a tactic essential to the genocidal colonial project.

See this statue? It’s located at the Glendale Central Library.
Big deal right? Yes. Yes it is.
She stands here today as a memorial for the victims of the sexual slavery and abuse committed by the Japanese imperial military during WWII. Right now, Japan is running a petition to take her down.
We cannot let this happen.
Every Wednesday, the woman of Korea that were used as sexual slaves protest and cry out. However, Japan refuses to acknowledge their suffering. There have been no apologies and no recognition.
Please, please don’t let them get rid of her. Their pain deserves to be recognized and sympathized.
Thank you so much for reading this. Even if you can’t sign this, please signal boost so other people will.
[[A big thank you to tumblr user did-we-just-marry-thedevil for bringing this to my attention]]
If this statue is taken down, we are erasing the memories and pain of the thousands of Korean (and Chinese) sex slaves during WWII. As a Korean female myself, this is even more disheartening.
Please signal boost.

Something you would not have seen in the media: Two Belgian UN ‘peacekeepers’ cheerfully roast a Somali boy over a fire, during a ‘humanitarian mission’ in Somalia in 1993
Kurt Coelus and Claude Baert were part of the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), which was a United States-led, United Nations-sanctioned multinational force and operated in Somalia between 5 December 1992 to 4 May 1993, in charge of carrying out United Nations Security Council Resolution 794: “to create a protected environment for conducting humanitarian operations in the southern half of Somalia.”
The two men were acquitted by a Brussels military court because of “insufficient evidence” and ruled that the incident was “a form of playing without violence.”
The incident received minimal coverage in the U.S. media, and the Belgian newspaper that originally published the photos received a bomb threat, which turned out to be made by a man who owns a local bar frequented by military personnel, including ‘peacekeepers’.

Western media works really hard so we don’t see this, we don’t see this articulate little girl
because it doesn’t sit right with the “we’re bombing savages” notion.
because the US is balls deep in Israel and can’t back out without admitting they fucked up momentously
When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.
This should be required learning, internationally.
You need to know this. You need to remember this. This is not something to swept under the carpet nor be forgotten.
Never. Too many have died for the way they have loved. That needs stop now.
Make it stop?
I did a report on this in my World History class my sophomore year of high school. It was incredibly unsettling.
My teacher shown the class this. Mostly everyone in the class felt uncomfortable.
I have reblogged this in the past, but it is so ironic that it comes across my dash right now. I a currently working as a docent at my city’s Holocaust Education Center (( I say currently because I’ve also done research and translation for them )) and out current exhibit is one on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum ((USHMM)). This is a little known historical fact that Paragraph 175 was not repealed after the war and those convicted under Nazi laws as a danger to society because they were gay were not released because they had be convicted in a court of law. There was no liberation or justice for them as they weren’t considered criminals, or even victims for that matter. They were criminals who remained persecuted and ostracized and kept on the fringes of society for decades after the war had been won. Paragraph175 wasn’t actually repealed until 1994. And it was only in May 2002, that the German parliament completed legislation to pardon all homosexuals convicted under Paragraph175 during the Nazi era. History has forgotten about these men and women — please educate yourselves so this does not happen again. Remember this history. Remember them.
Concession, Yielding to Imperialism Lead to Death: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, December 12 (KCNA) — It is a foolish act to harbor an illusion about the imperialists and expect any “reward” from them, Rodong Sinmun Thursday says in an article.
It goes on:
If a country takes the choice of making compromise with the imperialists, it will end up losing sovereignty and finally go to ruin. This is proved by what happened in Iraq.
Once Iraq stood firm against the U.S. However, when the Persian Gulf War started, Iraq began stepping back, taken aback by the U.S. indiscriminate military attacks and bullying tactics.
After the war, the U.S. had continued air raids and harsh sanctions for more than a decade, pressurizing Iraq to disarm and surrender.
Iraq could not but meet the U.S. demands, deterred by the U.S. arms and pressure. The Iraqi leadership accepted the forced inspection of military installations including major facilities of the country as demanded by the U.S. In the end, Iraq allowed the inspection of even the presidential palace.
By doing so, Iraq tried to escape the U.S. imperialists’ invasion and maintain power. But it was a serious miscalculation. The more concessions Iraq made, the greater ones Washington pushed for. It used to put military pressure on Iraq when the latter failed to do so.
Finally in 2003 the U.S. easily toppled the Sadam regime through an invasion against Iraq which was weakened by many years of sanctions and air raids.
The same can be said of Libya.
Victory in the struggle for independence and progress is in store for the country and nation standing firm against the enemies.
This is proved by the history of the Korean people’s struggle.
