Kim Jong Il

messages of condolence

Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK & the Juche Idea Study Group of England 

 We are very shocked to learn of the unexpected and tragic passing of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il , general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army. We never expected this to happen so suddenly. We ASSPUK and JISGE members share the deep grief of the Korean people.
The great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il was the loyal and faithful successor to the great leader Generalissimo Kim Il Sung. He was the standard bearer of the Juche revolutionary cause , leading the Workers' Party of Korea over several decades. He ensured that the WPK became the party of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung defending the monolithic unity of the Workers' Party of Korea, smashing the attempts of modern revisionists, opportunists ,factionalists and great power chauvinists to defile the revolutionary constancy of Juche. When the imperialist reactionaries and renegades of socialism sneered at socialism , demanding that the DPRK "open up" and "reform" he declared "Expect No Change from Me "

He defended the purity of the Juche idea . He systematised and enriched the Juche idea . The Juche idea shines out a philosophy for achieving the independence of the popular masses . He developed the Songun idea an embodiment of the Juche idea and sword for defending socialist Korea The many works written by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il are a priceless treasure of the world socialist movement. As supreme commander of the Korean People's Army comrade Kim Jong Il led the work of defence upbuilding and continued the cause of Juche-army building pioneered by the great leader President Kim Il Sung. Stressing the importance of the anti-imperialist military front led the DPRK to victory in the DPRK-US confrontation smiting the reactionary US imperialists by carrying out 2 nuclear tests so that the DPRK became a proud independent socialist nuclear power of Juche.
The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il led the struggle to build up the independent national economy . He made sure that the living standards of the Korean people were improved . Under his leadership the many social benefits enjoyed by the Korean people were preserved and further enhanced. He passed away whilst a trip of on the spot guidance, thus he was working for the people right up to the last minute. He had continued working hard at an age when most people retire.
Kim Jong Il, lodestar of national reunification, led the fellow Korean people along the road of independence and great national unity with his resolute will to implement the instructions of the President for national reunification and ushered in the June 15 era of reunification in which the noble idea of "By our nation itself" is materialized.

The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il led the cause of anti-imperialist independence throughout the world. Songun politics was an inspiration to the peoples struggling against imperialism and the Juche idea a powerful compass for defeating imperialism.

We Juche idea and Songun idea followers mourn the loss of a great leader not just of the Korean people but the entire world revolutionary movement. We share the grief of Juche idea followers the world over as well the revolutionary peoples of the world.
We are sure that the Korean people will turn sorrow into strength and courage , uniting behind the general Kim Jong Un, vice-chairman of the central military commission. May the Korean people under the leadership of general Kim Jong Un march forward along the path of Juche charted by the great leaders comrades Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il . Victory to the Juche revolutionary cause ! The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il is immortal.


New Communist Party of Britain

We were saddened to hear of the sudden death of Kim Jong Il, the great leader of the DPR Korea who devoted his entire life to serving the Korean people.

Following Kim Il Sung’s footsteps Kim Jong Il led the Workers Party of Korea into the 21st century to build a strong and prosperous democratic republic. Kim Jong Il was a leading Marxist thinker who made an important contribution to the modern communist theory as well as an astute statesman who led the Korean people through thick and thin to overcome natural disasters, imperialist blockade and diplomatic isolation.

While ensuring the DPRK’s defence against the threats and provocations of US imperialism and its lackeys Kim Jong Il worked tirelessly to ease tension on the Korean peninsula to pave the way towards the peaceful reunification of Korea.

We are confident that the Workers Party of Korea, and the Korean people as a whole, will continue along the path charted by the first Korean communists who lit the flame of revolution on the Korean peninsula that now burns so bright in the DPR Korea.

On behalf of the Central Committee of the New Communist Party of Britain we send our heartfelt condolences to the Workers Party of Korea and the Korean people in their hour of grief.

Revolutionary Communist Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist)

The Revolutionary Communist Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist), its Central Committee and all its circles express their deepest sadness on the untimely passing of the great leader, Comrade Kim Jong Il, and send their heartfelt condolences to Comrade Kim Jong Un and the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea and, through them, to the entire Korean party and people. Your loss is our loss and a loss to all those fighting throughout the world for national and social liberation and emancipation and for the creation of a new world of socialised humanity.

In a turbulent world situation and in the face of the unceasing and brutal hostility, provocation and blockade of US imperialism and its allies, including successive British governments, Comrade Kim Jong Il has led the Korean party and people in continuing to build the socialist society of their choice, in the most trying circumstances, and defending the sovereignty and independence of the DPRK, while ceaselessly striving for the peaceful reunification of the Korean people by their own efforts. In this he has adhered faithfully to the Juche principles espoused by the great leader of the Korean people, President Kim Il Sung.

There is little doubt that without Comrade Kim Jong Il leading the continued building of the DPRK as an impregnable fortress, capable of devastating retaliation on any who violate the peace, the DPRK would long since have fallen prey to the criminal aggression and wanton destruction of Anglo-American imperialism, a repeat of the Korean War of such bitter memory, wreaked upon other countries in recent times. This stand has inspired and will continue to inspire the struggling peoples of the world.

We are convinced that the Korean party and its leadership and the entire Korean people will turn their great grief into strength and march forward on the road of building a prosperous socialist country, sovereign and independent, and bring into being their cherished goal of reuniting the Korean nation by its own efforts, without outside interference.  We, as they, will draw inspiration in our struggles from the heroic life and work of beloved Comrade Kim Jong Il.
