Meetings of Young People Held in DPRK

Pyongyang, March 24 (KCNA) -- The will of the five million young people in the DPRK against the enemies getting hell-bent on the war moves to stamp out the DPRK, the whole life and cradle of happiness of the Korean people, is growing stronger with each passing day.

On March 22 and 23, meetings of youth and students and their marches with wartime songs sung in chorus were held across the country to show their resolute will to punish the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet regime of traitors keen on reckless anti-DPRK moves.

The venues of meetings were filled with the strong will of the young people to mercilessly wipe out the group of aggressors and traitors who are running amuck, oblivious of their bitter defeat in the last Korean War and the lesson of the decades-long anti-DPRK policy which came to total failure.

Attending the meetings were youth league officials and youths and students in provinces, cities and counties.

Speakers there said that the reckless moves of the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet group of traitors to dare ignite a war against the DPRK have enraged the young people of Juche Korea demonstrating its might as the fortress of socialism and a powerful country independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defence.

The young people in North and South Phyongan, North and South Hwanghae and Jagang provinces vowed to further sharpen the sword of confrontation against the U.S. and south Korea with strong anti-imperialist class consciousness under the present grave situation.

The young vanguards, who regard the spirit of defending the leader unto death and the defence of the country as their life motto, are replete with surging hatred. Their pledge to root out the source of aggression with bullets and bombs for revenge was heard at the meetings in Kangwon, North and South Hamgyong and Ryanggang provinces.

Youth and students in Nampho, Rason and Kaesong cities, too, expressed their will to devote themselves to the sacred war for national defence and mete out merciless punishment to the warmongers staging war drills for aggression.

The voices of those young people shouting slogans for annihilating the enemy resounded far and wide across the country.

There were marches of youth and students singing wartime songs in chorus.

Singing "Song of National Defence", "Advance" and other songs, they marched through streets while hardening their will to creditably carry forward the ever-victorious history and tradition of heroic Korea as befitting the descendants of the victorious wartime generation.

Rocking the whole country was the valiant spirit of the young vanguard to turn out courageously and surely accomplish the historic cause of national reunification, the long-cherished desire of the nation, when the Party gives an order for the southward advance. -0- (Juche112.3.24.)
