Solidarity Activities in September
The British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued a statement on the 72nd anniversary of the US occupation of south Korea on September 7.
The statement said:
On the 8th of September, 1945, the US troops landed in south Korea.
Right from the start the US troops committed atrocities against the Korean people.
The US imperialists, the chieftain of world imperialism and ringleader of international reactionaries committed the very serious criminal action of dividing Korea, a homogeneous nation which had existed for more than 5,000 years.
The 72 years of the occupation of south Korea by the US troops have been 72 years of misfortune and crime. The US troops in south Korea enjoy extra-territorial privileges in south Korea which means in effect that they can act like colonial overlords in south Korea and can commit crimes such a murder, rape, theft and drug dealing with impunity.
We say it is time for the US troops to pack their bags and go home leaving the Korean people free to decided their own affairs and reunify the country.
The British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued a statement denouncing the recent US provocation against People's Korea on September 23.
The statement said:
On the 23rd of September, the US imperialist aggressor B-1B Lancer bombers from Guam, along with US Air Force F-15C Eagle fighter escorts from Okinawa, Japan flew very near to the DPRK Airspace and flew north of the Demilitarized Zone.
This is an unprecedented provocation to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea! Trump had stated at the UN General Assembly that the DPRK faces total destruction. This was an insane genocidal threat to an independent people and now the insane US imperialist warmongers are threatening the DPRK with nuclear bomber aircraft.
We demand that the US stop its provocations at once and remove all so-called strategic assets from the vicinity of the Korean peninsula. The US and south Korean military exercises should be halted and the US troops must be withdrawn from the Korean peninsula!
We call on all progressives and anti-imperialists to rally around and unconditionally defend People¡¯s Korea!
