Foil revival of 'yusin' dictatorship


The Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea (DFRK) issued an appeal addressed to all the south Koreans Wednesday calling for resolutely foiling the authorities' moves to revive "yusin" dictatorship:

The notorious "yusin" dictatorship is being revived in south Korea, stirring up the whirlwind of fascism.

The remnants of "yusin" who seized power by resorting to a whole gamut of illegalities and frauds are brandishing with blood-shot eyes the sword of dictatorship to crack down on progressive and democratic forces standing for reunification.

The "yusin" remnants and their descendents have become desperate in their moves to revive dictatorship and suppress progressive and democratic forces. This is aimed to stamp out progressives in south Korea, split and trample down democratic forces and realize the long-term stay in power by the conservative forces, the "yusin" dictatorial forces.

This was also prompted by their design to tide over the catastrophic crisis that was caused by the case of the Intelligence Service's interference in the "presidential election" by branding the Unified Progressive Party as forces plotting rebellion and labeling the Teachers Union and the Government Employees Union as "enemy-benefiting" organizations to pursue suppression-oriented politics.

The revival of the "yusin" dictatorship is a tragedy in the 21st century and shame on the nation and the source of evil in the present era.

All the progressive and democratic forces in south Korea should achieve solidarity and alliance and turn out in the actions to hamper the "yusin" remnants' moves for disbanding the Unified Progressive Party and defend the Teachers Union, the Government Employees Union and the paper Jaju Minbo.

It is the truth taught by history that dictatorship does not last long and dictators are bound to meet a miserable end.

This was proven by the miserable ends of dictators Mussolini and Hitler as well as Syngman Rhee and military dictator Park Chung-Hee.

The actions to check the revival of "yusin" dictatorship are part of the nationwide movement to improve the north-south ties and achieve national reunification.

Only when south Korean society is democratized will it be possible to achieve the genuine development of the north-south ties, peace and prosperity of the nation and its independent reunification.

All the Koreans are standing by you who rose up in the just actions for defending progress and democracy, and the world progressive and democratic forces are extending full support and encouragement to you in your just struggle.

The appeal expresses the conviction that the broad segment of south Koreans will turn out in a sacred struggle to destroy the citadel of "yusin" dictatorship with the flame of all-people resistance, realize democracy and open up a new phase of improvement of the north-south ties and independent reunification.
