ANDY BROOKS joined other friends of the Korean revolution demonstrating outside the American embassy in London last week to protest against the latest US provocations on the Korean peninsula.
The NCP leader, along with other comrades and friends, picketed the US embassy in Grosvenor Square to call for an immediate halt to the "Foal Eagle" and "Key Resolve" exercises of the US imperialists in occupied south Korea and the hostile policy against the DPR Korea including the "human rights" racket.
The banner of the UK Korean Friendship Association (KFA), which organised the event, was draped over the hedge facing the US embassy while the demonstrators waved the Democratic Korean flags and gave loud-speaker addresses throughout the 90-minute afternoon protest action.
KFA members and supporters of the Juché Idea Study Group took turns with the microphone to denounce the south Korean puppets and their US imperialist overlords for launching the war-games that simulate the seizure of the nuclear facilities of the DPRK and a “regime change” invasion of the DPRK. They were followed by academics and other friends of Korea including Andy Brooks and other NCP members.
The 90-minute afternoon picket closed with rousing chants of "US out of Korea", "Korea is One", "Yankee Go Home", "Long Live the Workers' Party of Korea" and "Long Live Kim Jong Un" by the demonstrators undeterred by recent hysterical media attacks on the KFA in the bourgeois press.
The UK Korean Friendship Association (KFA) regularly organises solidarity meetings and protest pickets in London throughout the year. The KFA also works side by side with the Friends of Korea committee which also holds regular events in London.
