At a protest against the annual gathering of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference Sunday, Palestinian activists brought up a speaker from the South Korean People’s Democracy Party to voice opposition to “the U.S. occupation of their homeland.”
A representative of the party spoke to the crowd, praising Palestine and criticizing Israel and the United States.
“We are proud to be here and we support the struggle to end U.S. aid to Israel and end occupation now,” she said, according to her translator. “And we ask United States to stop intervening in politics, economies, and cultures in South Korea.”
The representative then criticized joint U.S.-South Korean defense exercises and measures to protect South Korea and Japan from North Korean aggression.
“The United States enforced to deploy the THAAD, which is missile defense system in South Korea,” she said.
The only English-language references NTK could find to the “People’s Democracy Party” appeared on far-left blogs which described it as the successor to “the Corean [sic] Alliance for Indpendent Reunification and Democracy.”
The first result of a quick Google search for the “Korean Alliance for Independent Reunification and Democracy” takes the user to the official webpage of North Korea. That page makes ten references to “independent reunification.”
