Contributors to Satellite Launch Leave Pyongyang amid Warm Send-off

The scientists, technicians, workers and officials who contributed to the successful launch of satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2 left here Friday amid warm send-off from senior party, state and army officials, service personnel and more than 100 000 Pyongyangites. They toured Pyongyang at the invitation of the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un.

Huge crowds of Pyongyangites lined along the tens of km-long route from Pyongyang Railway Station to Yonggwang Street, Kim Il Sung Square, Changjon Street, Mansudae Street, Pothong Gate, Yongung Street, Jonsung Square, April 25 House of Culture, Ryonghung Crossroads and Ryonmot-dong. The buses carrying the contributors left Pyongyang Koryo Hotel. In front of the hotel they were sent off by Kim Yong Nam, Choe Yong Rim and other senior party and state officials and officials concerned. People from all walks of life, youths and students warmly sent them off.

At Yongung (hero) Street they were seen off by service personnel of the Korean People’s Army and the Korean People’s Internal Security Forces with enthusiastic applause. When the buses reached Jonsung Square Choe Ryong Hae, Hyon Yong Chol and other high-ranking officers of the KPA, officials of the armed forces organs and other servicepersons of the KPA and the Korean People’s Internal Security Forces warmly sent them off. They arrived at the destination and had an emotion-charged meeting with officials, families and relatives.

  1. Should Obama pull a ‘Nixon goes to China’ and see if he can normalize relations with Pyongyang?

  2. Am looking to go; has anyone taken the Moscow line into the DPRK or been to Rason or anywhere which isn’t Pyongyang? How did you find it and how did you get in? Thanks, Ben.
    Ariana – whereabouts did you go?

  3. I hear that medium-wave radio picks up such signals. I live in a northwestern state where potatoes abound. I am interested in listening to this. What would be the frequency?

  4. We have 4 state television channel, KCTV of course, then Mangsundae Cultural Network, Yongimorae Music Channel, and Kaesong Broadcasting Service. KCTV runs from 1500 hours to 2000 hours, while the rest of the channels run from 0800 hours to 2200 hours. I have a 21″ CRT television, clearly marked as being made in Chonjin city’s factories, spent through years of hard work gaining enough ration points to be eligible for the Kangsong Department Store’s waiting list, and I only had to wait 2 months. We always get perfect reception thanks to our Dear Leader. We also have 13 major FM radio networks, roughly 50-50 distribution of socialist-oriented news and education, plus light-hearted music from our pride bands Pochonbo and Wangjaesan. I also recently from ration service of people’s goods receive CD stereo, again clearly marked as being made in this country; our music discs are gratis depending on what is out. Some specialised Kim Jong-il birthday albums require a small fee, but I do not mind paying; I earn in currency some 100 USD a month on top of my ration cards.

    I have a job in a Pyongyang Cement Factory #198, which I enjoy very much. My life has meaning thanks to the Dear Leader. I also have a 12 year education at a top middle-school and a worker’s vocational High School where I achieved top marks. Noting that University would take youth away from me better used contributing to the state in work, I decided to leave and the government gave me a job immediately, as it does all graduates of such institutes.

    I attend Juche Congression every Saturday to mark our great ideology. I wear Juche flag badge and Dear Leader badge, a nice warm coat provided by our leadership which does all seasons. You’re just a jealous American who is inversely brainwashing himself so he can deny he needs socialist guidance.

    We understand that clearly invented items thanks to Kim Jong-il’s innovation include the internet, the library system, rationalised economics in the socialist style, the computer machine (of which I am currently waiting for of my own; I am using the country’s largest e-Library at the moment which has infinite access to the internet), and the printed press including all forms of newspaper and book. Without these items, you shan’t have been communicating with eachother. Stop masturbating the American egoes against eachother and look properly at who actually gave you such priveledges; it’s certainly not what is claimed by the American lies.
    I have no connection to the elite. I am a common worker. I’ve never been born close to anybody who knew Kim Jong-il intimately.
    “Troll,”? No I’m not little man hiding in bridge. I am 5′ 6″ Korean worker whose only hiding is not showing his affection for Dear Comrade enough! 🙂
    I specifically talk of US of A but I am understanding that US of A also controls some of these other Americas.
    No, only a handful of the greatest channels of Earth. Have you been taking Arabian qat? If so, you must be George Bushian elite!
    Nope; Kimchi, rice, soy sauce (all free due to food ration), and occasionally I can afford to go to a specialized restaurant in the area. Sorry!
    I get following error message to YT links which I haven’t had before:

    “Koryolink: sorry, this content is unideologically safe. We will rectify this problem soon.”

  5. I know they had it narrowed down to four cities as of July, and were said at that time to have been wanting to make a decision by the end of the year (now).

  6. Which do you find more interesting?
    Reyna: http://www.koryogroup.com/
    Joel: I appreciate your answer, as it’s the only one so far to answer the q, but why should the countries level of Democracy be the defining point of why I visit there?
    Ray: Thank you for letting me know you envy my life. It feels good to know. PS, what’s wrong with Cuba? It’s the number 3 destination for Canadian tourists. Not just a place for Americans to torture people!
    Ray: Thank you for letting me know you envy my life. It feels good to know. PS, what’s wrong with Cuba? It’s the number 3 destination for Canadian tourists. Not just a place for Americans to torture innocent people!
