The for­ma­tion of the DIU was a his­toric dec­la­ra­tion of a new start of the Korean rev­o­lu­tion, and a sig­nif­i­cant event that pro­vided the Korean peo­ple with a rad­i­cal turn­ing-point in carv­ing out their des­tiny.

The DIU was the first rev­o­lu­tion­ary or­ga­ni­za­tion Pres­i­dent Kim Il Sung (1912-1994) of Korea formed when the coun­try was un­der the mil­i­tary oc­cu­pa­tion. At that time, he, re­al­iz­ing that the coun­try’s in­de­pen­dence could not be achieved by the early com­mu­nist move­ment and the na­tion­al­ist move­ment which were af­fected by the scram­ble for power, fac­tional strife, flunkey­ism and dog­ma­tism, made en­er­getic ef­forts to find a new way for strug­gle. In the course of this, he or­ga­nized the DIU with young rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies of a new gen­er­a­tion shar­ing idea and pur­pose.

The DIU set as its im­me­di­ate task the de­struc­tion of some coun­tries and achieve­ment of Korea’s lib­er­a­tion and in­de­pen­dence, with the ul­ti­mate aim of build­ing so­cial­ism and com­mu­nism in Korea.

The his­tory of the Korean rev­o­lu­tion span­ning nearly 90 years wit­nessed the vic­to­ri­ous ad­vance of the Korean peo­ple along the road of in­de­pen­dence, the road of Songun and the road of so­cial­ism, pi­o­neered by the DIU.

The prin­ci­ple of in­de­pen­dence set out by the DIU has be­come an in­vari­able prin­ci­ple for the build­ing of the Work­ers’ Party of Korea and its ac­tiv­i­ties.

The WPK has held fast to this prin­ci­ple de­vel­op­ing the po­lit­i­cal, mil­i­tary, eco­nomic, cul­tural and other fields on its own judg­ment, at its own dis­cre­tion and in its own way. In solv­ing all the prob­lems it has al­ways re­jected for­eign dom­i­na­tion and in­ter­fer­ence, and gave fore­most con­sid­er­a­tion to the re­al­ity of the coun­try and the in­ter­ests of its peo­ple.

Af­ter the coun­try’s lib­er­a­tion (Au­gust 1945) it took the road of Korean-style democ­racy in the build­ing of a new so­ci­ety; af­ter the Korean war (1950-1953). it ad­vanced an orig­i­nal line of eco­nomic con­struc­tion on giv­ing pri­or­ity to heavy in­dus­try and de­vel­op­ing light in­dus­try and agri­cul­ture in par­al­lel. All those facts showed that the WPK has thor­oughly ob­served the prin­ci­ple of in­de­pen­dence.

It was thanks to this prin­ci­ple of in­de­pen­dence that so­cial­ist Korea could ad­vance straight along the road of so­cial­ism.

The idea and line of Songun-based rev­o­lu­tion that trace their ori­gins back to the DIU are the eter­nal path of the WPK.

Ever since its found­ing, the WPK di­rected pri­mary ef­forts to build­ing and de­vel­op­ing the armed force. As it con­stantly im­ple­mented the idea and line of Songun. the DPRK which was less than two years af­ter found­ing, and de­fend the free­dom and sovereignty of the coun­try with honor. The WPK has con­sis­tently built and de­vel­oped so­cial­ism, based on the gi­gan­tic ideal and goal of the DIU.

Un­der its lead­er­ship the DPRK has been built into a so­cial­ist state cen­tered on the masses of the peo­ple, in which they are the masters of ev­ery­thing and ev­ery­thing serves them. It has liq­ui­dated ex­ploita­tion and op­pres­sion of man by man for good, and ev­ery­body is equally well-off. All mem­bers of so­ci­ety are guar­an­teed po­lit­i­cal free­dom and rights as well as the rights to work and re­lax­ation. Uni­ver­sal free med­i­cal care and com­pul­sory ed­u­ca­tion are in force, all its ci­ti­zens are pro­vided by the State and so­ci­ety with nec­es­sary con­di­tions for food, cloth and hous­ing and thus lead an equal and sta­bi­lized life.

The WPK, hav­ing safe­guarded so­cial­ism in the worst tri­als at the end of last cen­tury, is now rous­ing its peo­ple to the build­ing of a thriv­ing so­cial­ist na­tion, work­ing world-star­tling mir­a­cles day by day. In re­cent years alone the world-level cul­tural es­tab­lish­ments for the masses, such as Mirim Rid­ing Club, Munsu Water Park and Masikry­ong Ski Re­sort, were built in the coun­try, mak­ing the happy laugh­ter of the peo­ple louder.

The WPK that ad­vances un­flinch­ingly along the road of in­de­pen­dence, the road of Songun and the road of so­cial­ism pi­o­neered by the DIU will al­ways win vic­tory and glory in the fu­ture.
