NCP leader Andy Brooks joined other Korean solidarity activists protesting outside the centre of US imperialism in London last weekend. London comrades and members of the
British section of the Italian Communist Party gave out leaflets calling for solidarity with Democratic Korea (DPRK) outside the American embassy in Grosvenor Square.
The Saturday afternoon picket was called by the Korean Friendship Association (KFA) to denounce the latest threats from the chief American warlord, Donald Trump, that have taken the world to the brink of a new Korean war.
KFA Chair Dermot Hudson took the mike to say: “Not only is the independence of the DPRK being threatened, but peace in Asia and the Pacific region is being undermined by constant US threats and warmongering. The DPRK’s nuclear deterrent is not a threat to peace, but is to defend the independence and socialist system of the DPRK against US aggression and warmongering. The US has on several occasions considered the use of nuclear weapons against the DPRK and keeps 1,000 nuclear weapons in south Korea”
The KFA holds monthly meetings and protest pickets in London throughout the year in support of the struggling people of south Korea and in solidarity with the DPRK in the north.
