FRIENDS of Democratic Korea met at the Marchmont Centre in central London on Saturday 6th October to hear a report-back from a recent visit to the DPR Korea and to discuss the development of Kimilsungism and the Juché idea.
The meeting, called by the Juché Idea Study Group of England and the Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK, heard a report from Dermot Hudson who visited Democratic Korea in September and took part in a discussion on Juché opened by Sean Pickford. Dr Hugh Goodacre gave a concise history of the Korean communist movement and the Workers Party of Korea and NCP leader Andy Brooks called for support for the new campaign set up to demand the release of Ro Su Hui, the south Korean patriot who faces 10 years in gaol for visiting the DPRK.
