Korean "Day of Struggle Against U.S. Imperialism"

July 6, 2004

On June 25, millions of people throughout North Korea participated in the "day of struggle against U.S. imperialism," an annual event held on the day on which the U.S. ignited its war against Korea in 1950.

In the capital city, Pyongyang, a million people rallied against U.S. imperialism in Jonsung Square, and in other plazas throughout the city. Over the next few days, similar rallies were held in cities and regions all across the country.

During these mobilizations, the Korean people, rallying firmly around their government, army and party leaders, not only recalled the barbarous crimes committed by U.S. imperialism during the war but also denounced the continuing plots and aggression of the U.S. government.

Especially now, the U.S. has been increasing its pressure against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), branding it has part of the "axis of evil," drumming up a hysteria about the "nuclear danger" of the DPRK, etc. Along with this propaganda, the U.S. is increasing its military deployments in the region and its threats against the DPRK.

Through their mass actions, the Korean people again showed their determination to oppose any future aggression from the U.S. They also demanded the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from South Korea and vowed to continuously strengthen the sovereignty of their country.
