No More Sanctions!

The US government has recently added more sanctions against the DPRK. No matter what various US politicans say, such sanctions clearly constitute a type of economic warfare against the brave people of the DPRK. In view of the considerable number of sanctions heaped against the DPRK, it would not be surprising to find out that the DPRK is the most heavily sanctioned place in the world.

As more sanctions were announced, Amnesty International published a report which was supposed to shed some light about the healthcare situation in North Korea. This report appeared to be fairly one-sided. As stated by Stephen Gowans in a recent article posted on his site, "Not a word of the escalating sanctions regime against North Korea is mentioned in the Amnesty report..." Furthermore, in a separate article written by Gowans, he wrote that "While the Western media lighted on Amnesty International’s portrayal of North Korea’s healthcare system as a horror show with the eagerness of flies on road-kill, the World Health Organization had a more sober assessment of the rights organization’s Cold War-era hatchet job. WHO spokesman Paul Garwood faulted the report for being 'mainly anecdotal, with stories dating back to 2001, and not up to the UN agency’s scientific approach to evaluating healthcare.' 'All the facts are from people who aren’t in the country,' Garwood said. 'There’s no science in the research.'"

The Communist Party of Malta demands that the US government should revoke all the sanctions against the DPRK. The citizens of the DPRK do not deserve to be punished for having chosen to live in a country that prefers socialism instead of the neoliberal economic model.

The Communist Party of Malta pledges its support to the people of the DPRK. The Party believes that with the guidance of the Workers' Party of Korea and under the seasoned leadership of Comrade Kim Jong Il, the people of the DPRK will eventually be victorious.
