Published Dec 1, 2010 9:56 PM
The following statement was issued on Nov. 26 by Professor Jose Maria
Sison, chairperson of the International League of Peoples’
We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, condemn in the
strongest possible terms the recent and ongoing provocations being made by the
U.S. and the south Korean puppet government against the Democratic
People’s Republic of Korea.
We refer to the mobilization of 70,000 troops for a week of military maneuvers
just off the border of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in order
to simulate an invasion of the DPRK. ...
The south Korean puppet forces fired many shells into territorial waters of the
DPRK on Nov. 23 at 1 p.m. Only after an hour and a half later did the DPRK
retaliate in self-defense by firing shells at the Yonphyong Islet held by south
The south Korean puppet forces have made the provocations obviously at the
instigation of the U.S. U.S. officials and mass media have misrepresented the
DPRK as the one making the provocations and have quickly beaten the war drums
for the deployment of U.S. forces and weapons of mass destruction against the
In a far bigger act of war provocation, the U.S. has announced plans to send
the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS George Washington and its battle
group, including war ships, destroyers and hundreds of fighter jets, into the
area to participate in new military exercises to threaten the DPRK.
Let us recall that the U.S. military forces have been involved in all the war
maneuvers by south Korea, going back to the 1950-53 war, have killed millions
of the Korean people and have occupied south Korea since the end of World War
We demand that the U.S. withdraw its 30,000 troops from south Korea in order to
allow the peaceful reunification of Korea and let the Korean people exercise
their right to national self-determination.
We demand that immediately the U.S. and South Korea stop their war maneuvers
and exercises against the DPRK. They must remove their warships from the
territorial waters of the DPRK. The U.S. must end the sanctions it has
instigated against the DPRK.
Long live the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea!
Down with U.S. imperialism and its south Korean puppets!
Long live the Korean people of both north and south!
