Historic Laws Guaranteeing Rights and Interests of DPRK People

Pyongyang, August 14 (KCNA) -- On August 15, Juche 34 (1945), the Korean people achieved the national liberation from Japan's colonial rule.

From that time on, they could lead a dignified and happy life as the masters of the country and the owners of the production means.

In 1946, laws guaranteeing their rights and interests were promulgated one after another, drawing the attention of world people.

President Kim Il Sung worked out and promulgated the "Law on Agrarian Reform in North Korea" on March 5 that year to declare the enforcement of land reform to the world. The agrarian reform was carried out in a little over 20 days and thus land, once possessed by the Japanese imperialists and their stooges and landlords, were distributed to poor peasants and farmhands of more than 720,000 households free of charge.

Thanks to the Labor Law proclaimed in June, the factory and office workers could lead a genuine labor life while being granted with such democratic rights to labor and rest as the eight-hour working system to the full.

In July, the Law on Sex Equality was announced in the new democratic Korea. Consequently, the Korean women could take active part in social life, enjoying the same rights in all realms of political, economic and cultural life with men.

Meanwhile, the key industrial establishments, over 90 percent of the industries, were transferred into the state and all-people property under the "Law on Nationalization of Industries, Transport, Communications, Banks and So on" promulgated by the President on August 10. The nationalization of major industries helped remove the economic foothold of the imperialist exploitation and yoke, the root cause of social misery, and made the major production means serve for the development of the country and the promotion of the working masses' well-being.

Though 75 years passed since the promulgation of those laws, the new generations of the DPRK are still remembering them that provided the working masses, once object of exploitation and oppression, with an independent and creative new life.
