Desire of Mankind Can Come True Only in Socialist Society: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, June 18 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Monday in an article charges that the imperialists and their reptile media vociferate about the "advantage" of capitalism, claiming that socialism is an "inhumane society".
The imperialists and bourgeois defenders are talking about "freedom" and "equality," but they can't justify the unpopular capitalist society with any deceptive propaganda, says the article, and goes on:
Genuine freedom and rights of the popular masses are unthinkable in capitalist society.
Capitalism is not a "free" society advocated by the imperialists, but an unequal and dictatorial one.
Reality vividly proves that capitalism is an unpopular society where the freedom and rights of the popular masses are ruthlessly violated.
It is the capitalist society where the rich get richer and the poor poorer.
Socialism is a society where the independence of the popular masses can be defended and realized.
Socialism is the ideal society of humankind whose advantage and truth have been proved in severe ordeals of history.
It has the eternal viability for its scientific accuracy and truth.
Through their real living the Korean people came to have the faith that only socialism can provide them with genuine freedom, equality and a happy and worthwhile life and to advance to socialism is the only way of realizing the ideal of the popular masses for independence.
Today there is no ideal society which can take the place of socialism in the world.
The desire of humankind can come true only in socialist society, the article stresses. -0

Gedanken zum 17. Juni 1953

Vor 65 Jahren verbrachte ich an zwei aufeinander folgenden Tagen jeweils einige Stunden inmitten protestierender Bauarbeiter der Stalinallee, den aus Westberlin in den Osten strömenden "Aufstands"-Akteuren sowie zahlreichen Mitläufern oder Neugierigen und verfolgte aufgeregt die Ereignisse vor dem Haus der DDR-Ministerien an der Leipziger Straße.

Irgendwo auf den verschwommenen Fotos von den "Volksaufständischen" muss auch mein Haarschopf zu sehen sein, und am Montag, dem 16. Juni stand ich unserem mutigen Redner - dem vormaligen Bergmann, furchtlosen antifaschistischen Widerstandskämpfer und inzwischen DDR-Minister Fritz Selbmann sogar derart nahe, dass ich ein spaßiges Detail seiner Kleidung wahrnahm. Alles andere war nicht spaßig, und der von ihm verkündete Regierungsbeschluss über eine Rücknahme der umstrittenen 10%igen Normerhöhung wurde kaum zur Kenntnis genommen.

In späteren Jahren dachte ich nur gelegentlich an das Erlebte zurück, und auch in Gesprächen zwischen Kollegen und Genossen war der in der Bundesrepublik alljährlich lautstark gefeierte „Volksaufstand“ eigentlich kein Thema - wahrscheinlich nicht zuletzt deshalb, weil die ihn verursachenden Entwicklungen kaum als Ruhmesblatt in die DDR-Geschichte eingehen würden. Aber wir hatten nach notwendigen Kurskorrekturen unseren friedlichen Weg zum Sozialismus trotz aller Schwierigkeiten fortgesetzt und im Verlauf der nachfolgenden Jahrzehnte Erfolge errungen, die bis zum gegenwärtigen Zeitpunkt kein kapitalistischer Staat aufweisen kann. Gemessen an den Umständen unter denen sie erreicht werden mussten, waren sie zweifellos  beachtlich.

Mein Mann und ich standen 1989 bereits im Rentenalter und blickten auf ein erfülltes, obwohl keineswegs leichtes oder gar bequemes Leben zurück. Aber vor allem hatten unsere vier Kinder in der DDR nicht nur eine glückliche Kindheit und Jugend erlebt, sondern auch in den Jahren danach stets eine sichere Existenz und Perspektive gehabt.
… ….
Da akzeptierten sogar solche wie mein Mann und ich, dass man mit öffentlicher Kritik wohl vorsichtiger umgehen musste, konnten aber andererseits in den Folgejahren nicht mehr übersehen, dass es sich mancher Verantwortliche nun zunehmend leichter machte und allerhand selbstherrliche Karrieristen in leitende Positionen vordrangen.
In den 80er Jahren herrschte innerparteilich dann eine oft geradezu lähmende Atmosphäre, die dringend der Veränderung bedurfte. Weshalb mein Mann und ich - und  mit uns wohl die Mehrheit der Genossen -  zunächst auf Gorbatschows Perestroika-/Glasnost-Masche hereinfielen. Auch in meiner Parteigruppe  wurde begeistert darüber diskutiert, denn dort mussten wir nach wie vor kein Blatt vor den Mund nehmen. Dass dieser faule Zauber unseren Karren endgültig gegen die Wand fahren würde, merkten zumindest mein Mann und ich erst während einer Urlaubsreise in die Sowjetunion.

Als die "DDR-Bürgerrechtsbewegung" von westdeutschen Politikern unter völliger Missachtung der Souveränität unseres Staates immer dreister beeinflusst, geformt und voran getrieben wurde, war schnell klar, wohin der Weg führen sollte. Um diese Entwicklung zu verhindern, wären wir wie Hunderttausende oder sogar Millionen DDR-Bürger den "Wir-sind-ein-Volk"-Demonstranten gern rechtzeitig entgegen getreten. Doch auf ein Signal der Parteiführung warteten wir vergeblich und hatten weder die Verbindungen noch den Mut, uns selbst zu organisieren. Bald war es dann zu spät, die Hetzjagd auf DDR-Befürworter in vollem Gange und bis zur Bereitschaft zu Lynchmorden aufgeheizt.

"Vielleicht waren wir zu naiv" schrieb eine der DDR-Bürgerrechts-Ikonen, meine Altersgefährtin Christa Wolf, sinngemäß in ihrem letzten Roman. Das halte ich ihr zugute.
Wo und wie sie die Junitage 1953 verbrachte, entzieht sich meiner Kenntnis.
Aber man musste wohl den ersten Versuch zur Annexion der DDR nicht nur erlebt, sondern auch als solchen erkannt haben, um danach gegen die hinterhältigen Phrasen der angeblichen "Brüder und Schwestern" gefeit zu sein.

Die Frage, wie es vermutlich um ihn selbst, seine Familie, Deutschland, Europa und die Welt heute bestellt wäre, hätte die Konterrevolution damals gesiegt und damit eine Kettenreaktion in anderen sozialistischen Ländern ausgelöst, sollte sich jeder am 65. Jahrestag des "Volksaufstandes" stellen.
Die Antworten werden unterschiedlich bis krass gegensätzlich ausfallen.


Ich persönlich bin froh über den historischen Zeitgewinn für mich, meine Familie, uns Ostdeutsche, alle Europäer  und die gesamte Menschheit. 
Ursula Münch, (Jg. 1929)

Ohm Krüger –







Nadja sagt: Diese NS-Filmproduktion aus 1941 bekamen wir in der DDR nicht zu sehen, auch nicht am Montagabend im Fernsehen. 
Daß Marx-Engels mit den Kampf der Buren gegen die englische Kolonialisten sympathisierten war nicht verboten zu wissen, paßte aber nicht ins Konzept unserer Politik betreffend Süd Afrika  und wurde kaum erwähnt.
In Frankfurt (Oder) beim FDGB kannte ich aber die Kollegin Dittberner, die Statistin war in diesem Film und in ein Zug nachschwärmte, besonders von der Jahrhunderthalle in Breslau ( Wroclaw). Ist doch einfach und klar: Jeder eine schwärmt, mit zunehmenden .Alter noch mehr, von der eigenen Jugenderinnerungen, wird manchmal sogar verklärt.
Noch in Frankfurt (Oder) redete mich an der Oderpromenade mal eine unbekannte Frau an. Wir kamen auf der sparsamer Umgang mit Energieverbrauch zu reden. Die Dame nannte den bewußten Verschwendern „Kohlenklau“. Meine Eltern sagten mir: Die Menschen die ihre Jugendjahre vor 1933 hatten erinnern sich anders dann die welche in 19331945 dabei waren.
Ich sehe daher in YouTube gerne mal Zeugnisse von Frauen die selbst mal Jungmädel, in der BDM, waren.

Historic First DPRK-U.S. Summit Meeting and Talks Held





Pyongyang, June 13 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, held the summit meeting and talks with Donald J. Trump, president of the United States of America, at Sentosa Island of Singapore on June 12, 2018 for the first time in the histories of the two countries.
Thanks to the fixed decision and will of the top leaders of the two countries to put an end to the extreme hostile relations between the DPRK and the U.S., which lingered for the longest period on the earth on terms of acute confrontation and to open up a new future for the sake of the interests of the peoples of the two countries and global peace and security, the first DPRK-U.S. summit is to be held.
Singapore, the country of the epoch-making meeting much awaited by the whole world, was awash with thousands of domestic and foreign journalists and a large crowd of masses to see this day's moment which will remain long in history.
Kim Jong Un left his lodging quarters at 8:10 a.m. local time and arrived at Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island of Singapore, the venue of the talks.
Seen standing at the lobby of the venue of the talks where the top leaders of the DPRK and the U.S. will have the first meeting were the flags of the DPRK and the U.S.
At 9:00 a.m. local time the respected Supreme Leader of the party, state and army of the DPRK Kim Jong Un met and shook hands with U.S. President Donald J. Trump for the first time.
The top leaders of the two countries came to take their first step toward reconciliation for the first time in the 70 odd years-long history of standoff and antagonism since the division of the Korean Peninsula, and to stand face to face at the venue of dialogue.
Chairman Kim Jong Un had a souvenir photo taken with President Trump. The two top leaders went to the conference room, having a familiar talk.
Tete-a-tete talks were held between the two top leaders.
Noting that it was not easy to get to where they were,
Kim Jong Un made the meaningful words there was a past that gripped their ankles and prejudice and wrong practice covered their eyes and ears, but they overcame all that to come to this place and stand at a new starting point.
The two top leaders had a candid exchange of views on the practical issues of weighty significance in putting an end to the decades-long hostile relations between the DPRK and the U.S. and making peace and stability settle on the Korean Peninsula.
Then followed extended talks.
Present there from the DPRK side were Kim Yong Chol and Ri Su Yong, vice-chairmen of the Central Committee of the WPK, and Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho.
Present there from the U.S. side were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, United States National Security Advisor John Bolton and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
There was a comprehensive and in-depth discussion over the issues of establishing new DPRK-U.S. relations and building a permanent and durable peace mechanism on the Korean peninsula at the talks.
Noting that he is pleased to sit face-to-face with President Trump and the U.S. side's delegation, Chairman Kim Jong Un highly praised the president's will and enthusiasm to resolve matters in a realistic way through dialogue and negotiations, away from the hostility-woven past.
Expressing belief that the summit talks would lead to improvement of the DPRK-U.S. relations, President Trump appreciated that an atmosphere of peace and stability was created on the Korean Peninsula and in the region, although distressed with the extreme danger of armed clash only a few months ago, thanks to the proactive peace-loving measures taken by the respected Supreme Leader from the outset of this year.
Noting that many problems occurred due to deep-rooted distrust and hostility existing between the two countries,
Kim Jong Un said in order to achieve peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and realize its denuclearization, the two countries should commit themselves to refraining from antagonizing each other out of mutual understanding, and take legal and institutional steps to guarantee it.
He also underlined the need for the DPRK and the U.S. to take practical measures actively to carry out the issues discussed at the talks and the joint statement at an early date.
Kim Jong Un made an immediate agreement on Trump's proposal for recovering the remains of American soldiers and repatriating those already identified and gave an instruction to take a measure for settling it as early as possible.
Noting that the building of lasting and durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean Peninsula is of weighty significance in ensuring peace and security in the region and the rest of the world, he said that it is urgent to make bold decision on halting irritating and hostile military actions against each other.
Expressing his understanding of it, Trump expressed his intention to halt the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises, which the DPRK side regards as provocation, over a period of good-will dialogue between the DPRK and the U.S., offer security guarantees to the DPRK and lift sanctions against it along with advance in improving the mutual relationship through dialogue and negotiation.
Kim Jong Un clarified the stand that if the U.S. side takes genuine measures for building trust in order to improve the DPRK-U.S. relationship, the DPRK, too, can continue to take additional good-will measures of next stage commensurate with them.
Kim Jong Un and Trump had the shared recognition to the effect that it is important to abide by the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action in achieving peace, stability and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
That day, a luncheon was given in honor of the top leaders of the DPRK and the U.S. and participants in the talks.
Exchanged at the luncheon were views on further animating communication, contact and visit between both sides to cement the achievements made at the DPRK-U.S. talks and remarkably develop the DPRK-U.S. relations.
After the luncheon, the top leaders had a walk, deepening friendly feelings.
Kim Jong Un, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, and Donald J. Trump, president of the USA, signed a joint statement of the historic Singapore summit talks.
Kim Jong Un said that today both sides came to sign the historic joint statement heralding a new start, passing the past over, stating that the world would witness an important change.
Kim Jong Un had a meaningful photo session with Trump to commemorate the signing of the historic document and bid him farewell.
Chairman Kim Jong Un and President Trump expressed expectation and belief that the two countries which have lived in the quagmire of hostility, distrust and hatred would pass the unhappy past over and dynamically advance toward an excellent and proud future beneficial to each other and another new era, the era of the DPRK-U.S. cooperation would open up.
Kim Jong Un invited Trump to visit Pyongyang at a convenient time and Trump invited Kim Jong Un to visit the U.S.
The two top leaders gladly accepted each other's invitation, convinced that it would serve as another important occasion for improved DPRK-U.S. relations.
The DPRK-U.S. summit talks held in Singapore with success amid enthusiastic support and welcome of the whole world come to be a great event of weighty significance in further promoting the historic trend toward reconciliation and peace, stability and prosperity being created in the Korean Peninsula and the region and in making a radical switchover in the most hostile DPRK-U.S. relations, as required by the developing times. -0-

1500 HALLE – Leven in Villa Servais

Op 6 juni 2018, Servais’ 211de verjaardag, vond de avant-première plaats van de film ‘Leven in Villa Servais’. De Villa Servais is een begrip in Halle. Niet enkel omwille van haar dominante ligging op de Vogelpers, maar vooral wegens de bijzondere geschiedenis van het gebouw. De beroemde cellist Servais woonde er vanaf 1847 met zijn gezin en ontving er zijn internationale vrienden. Tijdens de tweede wereldoorlog werden er Duitse en Engelse soldaten gehuisvest en vervolgens tientallen rijkswachtgezinnen. Nadien liepen er honderden Halse kinderen school. Regisseur Jan Boon filmde 32 getuigen en verwerkte die samen met Hallenaar Hans Desmet in de kortfilm ‘Leven in Villa Servais’.
De voorstelling ging gepaard met cellomuziek, dans en poëzie. De eerste exemplaren van de dvd werden plechtig overhandigd aan de getuigen en aan Servais’ achterachterkleindochter Claire Vanderlinden. Tegelijk werd ook de gerestaureerde siervaas ingehuldigd, als symbolische start van de grote restauratiewerken. De vaas pronkt opnieuw vóór de Villa dankzij de goede zorgen van restauratrice Linda Temminck
