[The following open letter was submitted on behalf of the third-worldist reggae group, FC Apatride UTD, a Belgrade-based communist outfit whose latest album can be viewed here. Anti-imperialism provides a platform for anyone who shares a broad communist, anti-imperialist and third-worldist politics. For a a rosier piece on the recent talks in Korea, see our […]

With all the charm lacking in the leadership of the western imperialists, and in genuine concern for peace, comrade Kim Jong-un crossed the small concrete block that separates North and South to greet the ROK President, Moon Jae-in. It was clear from the very start that, despite the fact the conference has thus far been […]

Catch flies with honey, rats with garbage. Don’t you just hate when you laud somebody for their heroism and strength of character and they turn out to be a common murderer? Well, that’s precisely what’s gone down with that heroic North Korean soldier who defected a little over a month ago. A young, “low-ranking” North […]

In a public letter to amerikan lawmakers, which was quickly funneled to international news agencies, top pentagon officials talk deliberately on options in deploying military force against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. In the letter, Rear Admiral Dumont, vice director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, makes clear that “The only way to ‘locate […]

“We are advocates of the abolition of war, we do not want war; but war can only be abolished through war, and in order to get rid of the gun it is necessary to take up the gun.” —Mao Zedong The sanctions regime has proven itself once again to be the only UN institution with […]

A new poll released by the Chicago Council of Global Affairs (CCGA) shows that a majority of amerikans now support an armed intervention on the Korean peninsula if the DPRK were to strike the south. This comes after months of heightened tension in which the united $tates has unsuccessfully attempted to bully the DPRK into […]

Otto Warmbier, the amerikan student who was arrested for having stolen a poster while visiting North Korea, has become the subject of great (and hypocritical) debate. First, it must be noted that at the time of this article’s publication, there is yet no evidence to suggest that Otto Warmbier has been violently mistreated, or that […]

As a u.$. Naval strike group stalks toward the peninsula, the imperialists, whipped into a frenzy by Trump’s long-expected turn to ravenous interventionism, have shown a single-minded determination to destroy People’s Korea. The imperialists have all but promised war unless the DPRK surrenders its sovereign right to self-defense. At this moment it seems that nobody, […]

A tension between South Korea and North Korea has been existing since the ceasefire of the Korean War. This tension, which often takes a form of militaristic aggression, has heavily influenced the socio-economic system of South Korea and has become the basis of creating its anti-communist cultural structure. We do not have to look so […]

By J. Sul It has been recently discovered that the U.S.A. shipped living anthrax to its Air force base stationed in Osan city of South Korea[1].

By J. Sul Introduction JeJu island which is known to be the most beautiful island in South Korea has become one of the most controversial geopolitical locations in the nation. This is mainly due to the imperialistic policy of the US and the militaristic affiliation it has made with the South Korean government: the installation […]

By J. Sul Introduction The number of atypical, part-time and dispatch laborers (also known as precarious workers) has drastically increased in South Korea after the financial crisis of 1997 [1]. To overcome the economic crisis, the South Korean government received financial aid from the International Monetary Fund at the cost of restructuring its national business […]

By J. Sul South Korea is in a political conundrum now. For the first time since the establishment of Constitutional Court of Korea, a political party is disbanded because of its “hidden” socialist agenda behind their official manifesto. The United Progressive Party which has been framed as being pro-North Korea is disassembled by the judges […]

Famous Singer executed by firing squad! … only to show up alive, grinning, and well on national television! Awwkwaaard!1 Either the DPRK has discovered the long-lost art of necromancy (and the United States is in for a bone-shattering surprise when an undead Korean People’s Army comes rattling onto its shores), it has created an exceedingly […]

The issue of describing the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is one which has concerned all matter of political organizations for quite sometime; a topic which the non-Communist left and wide array of would-be political economists have greatly pursued. Here we hope to investigate the class character of the DPRK with a great deal […]

US Ultimately to Blame for Korean Skirmishes in Yellow Sea (Stephen Gowans, http://www.gowans.wordpress.com) There has been a lot written about the escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula, tensions touched off by the South’s firing artillery shells into disputed waters in the Yellow Sea. Much of the commentary—including my own–has only tangentially addressed the key issue: […]
