Declaration on the current situation
A struggle against Lee Myung-bak regime spread
like wildfire across
The declarations on the current situation were
The intensive resistance is an eruption of people’s grudge against the Lee clique that retreated the history with his policy of sycophancy, inter-Korean confrontation, fascist dictatorship and of ignoring the people’s livelihood. It is a stern punishment of the people to the Lee regime.
Look! Unpardonable sins of Lee Myung-bak committed against the people during his one-odd year presidency.

The people’s livelihood faces the peril owing to
misrule and the economic downturn. The streets are full of jobless people by
lay-offs and restructuring and students give up their studies unable to pay
school fees. The people who lose all interests in life commit suicide.
However, the Lee regime ruthlessly represses broad segments of people demanding democracy and the rights to existence and purges the leftist forces, branding the pro-reunification forces as group of violence.

The death of former president Roh Moo-Hyun that rocked the world is a murder by a base political retaliation and barbarous attempt to belittle the October 4 Declaration and liquidate the supporting forces. The Lee regime ordered the riot police on emergency alert during Roh’s funeral ceremony and destroyed mourning places to beat the mourners.
Public indignation at the Lee regime is bursting
into flames in
However, the Lee regime, far from apologizing the murderous crimes it committed and resigning from the power, makes desperate efforts to save ruling crisis.
The Lee clique ignored the people’s demands for apology, the government

Those who value justice and truth should stand against the Lee regime’s tyranny against the nation and the people.
The south Koreans would suffer misfortunes and can never avoid disasters from nuclear war as long as the Lee regime, that declared death to democracy and deteriorated the inter-Korean ties to a collapse, remains in office.
The current situation solemnly requests the whole nation to turn out in the struggle to ostracize the Lee clique.
The Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front, reflecting the intention and will of the people who chant slogans demanding retirement of Lee Myung-bak, declares as following:
First, the south Koreans should wage a vigorous struggle to liquidate the Lee regime, holding higher slogan “Down with Lee Myung-bak!”
Existence, far from dignity and right of human being, cannot be guaranteed under the rule of murderous regime that drove the ex-president to death.
It is an empty dream to expect democracy, civil rights and livelihood from the Lee regime. The south Koreans do not want his apology to the nation and reform of state affairs. Their only goal is to retire Lee from presidency.
All the people should hold aloft slogans demanding retirement of Lee.
Crush the murderous regime to pieces that serves the handful rich and kills the majority of the people.

Third, intensify the drive to defend the June 15 Joint Declaration and the October 4 Declaration.
The drive to defend the inter-Korean declarations is a fundamental demand to invigorate the movement for reunification.
Reveal the criminal nature of Lee who denied the inter-Korean declarations and deteriorated the inter-Korean relations.
Throw Lee’s anti-north confrontational policy “denuclearization, opening and 3, 000 US dollars” into a dustbin of the history.
Make strenuous efforts to abolish the “National Security Law,” an evil law against reunification.
The inter-Korean declarations are a program and milestone for reunification.
Open a path for independent reunification with concerted efforts of the Korean nation.
Promote national reconciliation and make an active drive to achieve reunification under the banner of “by our nation itself.”
Resolutely frustrate vicious plot of the anti-reunification elements through united strength of the Korean people.
Fourth, win a victory in realizing democracy and reunification by accelerating the struggle.
June is a meaningful month that recorded indelible trace in the history of the south Koreans advancing for independence, democracy and reunification.
The south Koreans, chanting slogan “Abolish the
Constitution!”, overthrew the military dictator and held the nationwide candlelight
vigil against the
The indomitable spirit displayed to realize democracy and reunification plus present current of reunification would easily pull down a stronghold of fascism and national division.
Intensify the second popular uprising with the spirit of June popular uprising in the past.
Conduct the candlelight campaign more dynamically against the
Deal a heavy blow to the anti-reunification elements with raging hatred in place of emotion echoed in June 15, 2000.
We vividly remember it.
The death of Kim Ju-yol sparked the historic April 19 popular uprising that ousted Syngman Rhee dictatorial regime, 40-odd year ago and the death Lee Han-yol triggered off the June popular uprising that put an end to the military dictatorship, 20-odd year ago.
The death of evacuees in Yongsan, the death of Park Jong-tae for the right to existence and the demise of Rev. Gang Hee-nam for democracy and reunification, their souls call merciless punishment of Lee Myung-bak.
Defying injustice with suicide is worthless. We should live rather than die to settle accounts with the Lee regime.
Satisfy their grudge through a stubborn struggle.
Keep Rev. Gang’s last words “depose Lee, a murderer, through the second June popular uprising” in mind.
Raise voice against Lee marking the 49th day of Roh-Moo-hyun’s death.
Unity is strength and victory.
The south Korean from all walks of life should wage intensive struggle in unity, regardless of the party affiliation, political view and religion.
Make a strenuous struggle until Lee resigns.
Display an indefatigable volition and tenacity in the struggle against Lee.
Victory is certain when the people are confident and optimistic about the victory.
Dear people! Arouse in the nationwide drive to liquidate Lee Myung-bak.
