Day of Struggle Against U.S. Imperialism

July 8, 2006

On June 25, hundreds of thousands of Koreans held a massive rally in the capital of Pyongyang in a “day of struggle against U.S. imperialism.” The rally was held on the anniversary of the day in 1950, when U.S. troops attacked North Korea, beginning a 3-yr war of aggression that killed and wounded millions of people.

Speakers and participants denounced U.S. imperialism not only for its past aggression against Korea, but also for its recent provocations and threats of war.

Other large-scale rallies took place in South Hwanghae Province, North Phyongan Province and Kangwon. Thousands of workers, war veterans, and youth and students took part.
