Revival of 'yusin' dictatorship intolerable

The Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea (DFRK) Monday issued an indictment laying bare the gravity and danger of the moves to revive the "yusin" dictatorship in south Korea, the fascist dark era:


Park Chung-Hee, the ill-famed "yusin" dictator, seized "power" through a military coup and established the one-man dictatorial system unprecedented in south Korea before exercising unlimited power.

The present chief executive of south Korea took office and established the one-person ruling system reminiscent of the "yusin" dictatorial system.

Revival of 'Yusin' dictatorship intolerable
Park Geyun Hye
She broke a promise to enforce the systems whereby "the prime minister assumes responsibility" and "ministers own responsibility" and set up a direct ruling system under Chongwadae so that it may control all domestic and foreign policies and even "the policy toward the north". She thus reduced the puppet prime minister and ministries and agencies under the administration into puppets.

She is reorganizing power mechanisms in the "yusin" dictatorship-style or totally reviving the ruling machines during the "yusin" dictatorship.

The "National Security Office" of Chongwadae which is reported to handle all diplomacy, security and unification matters is a copy of the "National Security Council" made by Park Chung-Hee in 1963. The puppet Intelligence Service has become a machine going above law just as the Central Intelligence Agency did under the "yusin regime."

Many "yusin" remnants and their descendants are holding "government" posts.

The revival of the "yusin" dictatorship in south Korea finds a vivid manifestation in embellishing the "yusin" dictatorship of Park Chung-Hee and reviving things dating back to those times.

"Memorial services" took place in Seoul and in Kumi, North Kyongsang Province, the birthplace of Park Chung-Hee, on October 26, the 34th anniversary of the death of the "yusin" dictatorship. Not content with whitewashing the "yusin" at the services, the puppet conservative group including the "Saenuri Party" praised the May 16 military coup as a "decisive action for national salvation" and traitor Park Chung-Hee, the "yusin" dictator, as a "great man".

Son Pyong Du, director general of the "Park Chung-Hee's Memorial Foundation", blustered that he would certainly build together with Park Geun Hye what Park Chung-Hee wanted to achieve and the "yusin" era is better, sparking off public uproar.

Even the "Park Chung-Hee leadership ability research institute" is now operating in south Korea.

Park Geun Hye is claiming that she would develop the "new village movement" conducted by Park Chung-Hee in the 1970s into a "future-oriented movement for reforming citizens' consciousness" and an "all-people movement".

In August last the Committee for Compiling National History examined and passed the history textbooks rewritten by the Association of Contemporary History, an ultra-right conservative organization, seriously distorting the modern history of south Korea including the embellishment of the Park Chung Hee's "yusin" dictatorial rule, and let all the high schools use the textbooks from March next year.

The revival of "yusin" dictatorship finds its clear expression in the south Korean regime's fascist suppression of people of various circles.

After Park Geun Hye's seizure of power, a terror-ridden atmosphere of suppression racket reminiscent of the "yusin" dictatorship is prevailing in south Korea.

It is against the backdrop of reign of intelligence-based politics and repressive politics that activities of political parties and organizations have been brutally suppressed, elementary political freedom, democratic rights and rights of south Korean people wantonly violated.

The south Korean regime kicked up a whirlwind of arrest, grumbling that the South Headquarters of Pan-national Alliance for Korea's Reunification (Pomminryon) is still active though it is long since it was labeled an "organization benefiting enemy". It is suppressing such core members of the headquarters as the acting chairman, secretary general and director in charge of cooperation with foreign countries of Pomminryon after detaining them.

Park is zealously encouraging the repressive forces in the suppression of the Teachers Union after branding it as "a blight-like organization" and "the main culprit plunging schools into state of confusion".

After Park took office the puppet conservative group put 103 personages behind bars on the charge of violation of the "Security Law", much more than the number of those detained in the same period last year.

The revival of "yusin" dictatorship is seriously affecting the inter-Korean relations.

The conservative group is now driving the inter-Korean relations into a catastrophe, trumpeting about "confrontation accompanied by dialogue" and "confrontation of the social systems" just as the erstwhile "yusin regime" did.

Absolutely intolerable is the revival of the "yusin" dictatorship.

If Park Geun Hye persists in reviving the "yusin" dictatorship in disregard of the warnings of the history and the nation, she will never escape the same miserable fate as that her father's "yusin" dictatorship met.
