Posters Arousing People to Head-on Breakthrough Produced [January 22 Juche 109 (2020) KCNA]

Among the posters are ones which call for giving full play to the
revolutionary spirit of self-reliance and breaking through head-on
manifold difficulties in all sectors of the national economy including
metal and electric power industries.


Some of them show the idea that only when a breakthrough is made on the
front of science, can all the fronts of socialist construction win. Some
of them call for developing education and public health to turn the
DPRK into a country of education and talents, thereby giving full play
to the advantages of the socialist system.


The poster “Young People Should Demonstrate Wisdom and Pluck of the
Youth in the Van of the Offensive for Making a Breakthrough Head-on!”
calls upon the Korean youth to take the lead in the on-going gigantic
struggle.

[January 8 Juche 109 (2020) KCNA]

Evidence and data laying bare the crime of sexual slavery committed by Japan have been brought to light one after another.


At the end of last year, a hall storing data on wartime women and peace
in Sinjuku Ward, Tokyo Metropolis of Japan updated and posted on its
website a map recording the places where the Imperial Japanese Army kept
women sexual slaves, 10 years after its opening to the public. The map,
made on the basis of official documents found in different countries,
records thousands of data on 23 countries or regions.


A Japanese university professor said that there exist data gained
through investigation into specific countries and regions, but the
recent map is of great significance as it carries collected and
pigeonholed data on “comfort stations” across the Asia-Pacific region
occupied by the Imperial Japanese Army, adding that it will serve as a
database for investigating the issue of sexual slavery.


This shows that the crime of sexual slavery committed by the Japanese
imperialists is a historical fact that can never be covered up and the
truth behind the crime is being made clearer with the passage of time.


As well known, the Japanese imperialists, prompted by a wild dream to
become “the leader of Asia”, unleashed a war of aggression in the last
century and committed the crime of sexual slavery, an unprecedented
hideous crime against humanity that was enforced in an organized and
systematic way by the government and the military.


The Japanese imperialists took women of many Asian countries like Korea,
China, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia and
even European women to battle fields to satisfy the carnal desire of the
extremely corrupt “imperial army”, thereby brutally trampling down the
dignity and rights of the women.


Regarding Korea as a main base for supplying sexual slaves, in
particular, Japan kidnapped or abducted a total of 200 000 Korean women,
including married women and even 11 year-old girls, to make them
subject to all sorts of disgrace, and massacred them without hesitation
to destroy evidence.
