Comrades joined other Korean solidarity activists in picketing the hub of American imperialism in London last week to oppose the deployment of the US THAAD missile defence system in south Korea, and to protest against US war threats and sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The protest, called by the Korean Friendship Association (KFA) and supported by the New Communist Party, began outside the puppet south Korean embassy in Westminster and then moved on the US embassy in Grosvenor Square.
KFA Chair Dermot Hudson took the mike to denounce US imperialism saying: “Today the US occupies south Korea with over 30,000 troops stationed there and a thousand nuclear weapons. The south Korean people are forced to pay colonial tribute to the US in the form of upkeep expenses.
“People’s Korea is a peace loving state that does not have a single overseas base, but the US has hundreds of overseas bases and troops that form a global empire straddling across the world.”
