On behalf of the Social Democratic Party of Kenya (SDP) I send fraternal revolutionary greetings to you comrades in Seoul, South Korea, as you launch The Min Plus. Congratulations comrades for defying the oppressive propaganda mainstream media organized by US imperialism and the reactionary and treacherous puppet regime based in South Korea. Thank you for launching the alternative true and progressive The Min Plus media that will continue to articulate the genuine wishes and aspirations of the patriotic forces for an anti - imperialist and united socialist Korea.
We in Kenya are also committed to the struggle against colonialism, neocolonialism, imperialism and capitalism salute you comrades of South Korea for remaining loyal to your world famous, gallant, legendary and inspiring history of struggle in which your revolutionary people and leaders led by among others comrade Kim Ill Sung armed with Juche ideology defeated the fascist Japanese and US colonial and neocolonial powers and also feudalism and capitalism in the northern part of your country. We are also aware that the defeated reactionary forces established themselves in the southern part of your country from Seoul with the support of US imperialism from where they perpetuate the imperialist division of Korea. We also know that US imperialism and its puppet regime based in Seoul uses US military forces and bases - the largest in the region - , systems of organized terror, false propaganda and physical and psychological torture of patriotic citizens to maintain the dictatorial and capitalist regime and system that delays the reunification of Korea. We say ‘delays’ because we believe that sooner or later Korea will be reunited while capitalism and imperialism defeated.
Many of you comrades launching The Min Plus have been forced to spend many years in prison where you underwent unimaginable torture. You also have comrades, friends and fellow patriots and revolutionaries that have been persecuted viciously in many ways by the oppressors. The fact that you continue with the struggle despite all this is a great inspiration to us and all people in the world struggling for freedom, national liberation, justice and peace. As a person who has also spent many years in prison under solitary confinement and torture in Kenya, I convey my heartfelt appreciation and admiration to you in this regard.
Finally comrades, you can always count on SDP’s solidarity for The Min Plus and all it represents and for the continuing struggle for the liberation of Korea from capitalism and imperialism and for the reunification of Korea which is a just struggle that is part and parcel of the struggle for the freedom and liberation of humanity.
Long live The Min Plus! Long live the struggle for the reunification of Korea!
Long live anti - imperialist solidarity! Long live socialism!
