New Communist Party of Britain

Kim Jong Il 1942—2011

Andy Brooks, General Secretary of the New Communist Party of Britain sent this message of condolence to the Korean people.

WE WERE saddened to hear of the sudden death of Kim Jong Il, the great leader of the DPR Korea who devoted his entire life to serving the Korean people.

Following Kim Il Sung’s footsteps, Kim Jong Il led the Workers Party of Korea into the 21st century to build a strong and prosperous democratic republic.

Kim Jong Il was a leading Marxist thinker who made an important contribution to the modern communist theory as well as an astute statesman who led the Korean people through thick and thin to overcome natural disasters, imperialist blockade and diplomatic isolation.

While ensuring the DPRK’s defence against the threats and provocations of US imperialism and its lackeys, Kim Jong Il worked tirelessly to ease tension on the Korean peninsula to pave the way towards the peaceful reunification of Korea.

We are confident that the Workers Party of Korea, and the Korean people as a whole, will continue along the path charted by the first Korean communists who lit the flame of revolution on the Korean peninsula that now burns so bright in the DPR Korea.

On behalf of the Central Committee of the New Communist Party of Britain we send our heartfelt condolences to the Workers Party of Korea and the Korean people in their hour of grief.

Andy Brooks,

General Secretary.
