For the present, the Korean working class and working people and progressive mankind of the world have been looking back the immortal and glorious revolutionary life of the President Kim Il Sung in the most humble reverence, devoting himself to happiness of the people and realization of independent cause of mankind, on the occasion of the 27th anniversary of his demise (July 8, 1994).

The greatest one of all his exploits is to blaze a new trail for the Korean revolution by the extraordinary ideological theory and to thoroughly embody it in the whole course of the revolution and construction.

The founding of the immortal Juche idea was a historic event of great significanced in the Korean people’s struggle for independence.

The Juche idea was founded by President Kim Il Sung in Juche 19(1930) when he was in his teens.

After occupying Korea, the Japanese imperialists had suppressed anti-Japanese-struggle,s, arresting, imprionsing and killing patriots at random to stamp down on the Korean people’s hope for national independence. At that time, the Korean people’s resistance and mass struggle grew stronger, but they came to failure as they were not guided under the proper line.

From the first days of his revolutionary struggle, the President keenly realized the necessity for a new guiding idea to save the destiny of the nation and lead the national liberation struggle to victory, and groped for a new path.

On this basis, he held a meeting of leading personnel of the Young Communist League and the Anti-Imperialist Youth League in Kalun from June 30 to July 2, 1930 and made a historic report “The Path of the Korean Revolution” at the meeting. In the report, he clarified the steadfast stand that the Korean people are responsible for the Korean revolution and the Korean revolution should be carried out by themselves in keeping with the specific conditions of their country.

His report was a great declaration on the founding of the Juche idea that the popular masses are masters of the revolution and construction and they are also the motive force of the revolution and construction.

On the basis of the revolutionary principles of the Juche idea, the President defined in a scientific way the character, basic tasks, motive power and target of struggle of the Korean revolution and set forth the Juche-oriented line and strategic and tactical policies.

Under the banner of the Juche idea founded by the President, the Korean people achieved the historic cause of national liberation on August 15, 1945 and have dynamically advanced the revolution and construction, recording miraculous victories in the DPRK’s history of more than 70 years.

The President Kim Il Sung, indeed, the greatest leader the Korean people, the founder of the socialist Korea had ever had in the long history of the nation, and was an ever-victorious iron-willed military commander gifted with outstanding military wisdom.

The people-loving history of the President who had devoted his tireless efforts for happiness of the people, in spite of his great age of eighty, today, goes on unchangingly on this land thanks to the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.

Today, committees for remembering President Kim Il Sung were organized and various political and cultural events including remembrance meetings, film shows, photo exhibitions, seminars and lectures are being held in different countries all over the world. Also his immortal classical works and information concerned with his achievements are being carried in mass media.

Greeting this unforgettable July, the Korean working class and people are full of firm confidence and determination that the President Kim Il Sung is always with the Korean people and progressive mankind of the world and a powerful socialist nation will be built in this land without failure by turning all out in the struggle for implementing of resolutions of the 8th Congresses of Workers’ Party of Korea and General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea (GFTUK), thanks to the sagacious guidance of Kim Jong Un, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK).
