The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) Wednesday made public a detailed report on the fighting spirit and traits of the three-revolution frontrunners in the 1970s who pushed forward with the ideological, technical and cultural revolutions.
The detailed report said that the 1970s, which our people entered after successfully accomplishing the historic cause of socialist industrialization at the speed of Chollima, was exciting years when the mass movement of the highest form of our era started with the idea and line of the Workers' Party of Korea of three revolutions and under its wise leadership, and when the validity and inexhaustible vitality of the mass movement was fully displayed.
President Kim Il Sung initiated the three-revolution team movement in keeping with the requirements of the developing revolution according to which the modeling of the whole society on the Juche idea became a priority, and made sure at the enlarged meeting of the Political Committee of the Party Central Committee held in February Juche 62 (1973) that three-revolution teams that consist of core party members and young intellectuals prepared politically and practically were organized and sent to industrial and agricultural sectors. And he set out a plan to launch the Three-revolution Red Flag Movement.
True to the high intention of President Kim Il Sung, Chairman Kim Jong Il let the Komdok Mine and the Chongsan Co-op Farm raise the first torch of the three-revolution red flag movement in November Juche 64 (1975) and wisely led them so that the flame of this movement rapidly spread throughout the country.
Under the energetic leadership of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il the whole country became alive with the three-revolution red flag movement and the three-revolution team movement, and excellent examples were set in implementing the line of the three revolutions in the 1970s.
The detailed report said that there were three-revolution team members who vigorously encouraged the popular mass to the implementation of Party's policies by injecting vitality into the unity and fighting efficiency of groups at the worksites across the country in the 1970s.
The work for instilling into all the people the revolutionary idea of the Party was carried out in a unique manner.
The revolutionary traits were established such that everybody deeply studied the immortal classic works of President Kim Il Sung in a comprehensive and systematic way with "The Room for the Study of the Revolutionary Ideas of Comrade Kim Il Sung" as a base and studied more than 2 hours a day. As required by such atmosphere of the times the three-revolution teams gave momentum to the enthusiasm for studying with various forms and methods like a question-and-answer study, lectures, explanatory statements and dissemination of songs at units under their charge.
In particular, the question-and-answer study method which was created by President Kim Il Sung during the anti-Japanese armed struggle displayed great vitality in raising the political awareness of working people.
The activities conducted by the three-revolution teams by applying the anti-Japanese guerrilla agitation work method in all fields also brought about a fundamental change in agitation and information work.
Amid the fierce flame of ideological revolution, lots of ranks of loyalists, typically "Phibada" guards and "The flower girl" guards, were formed and became active in different parts of the country, and the mass movement guaranteeing the thorough-going implementation of the decisions of the Party Congress stirred up the whole country in the period when the six-year plan was carried out.
The 1970s saw the production of a number of three-revolution front-rankers who defended the Party policies through the great surge in the self-reliance amid the high flame of technical revolution, the detailed report stressed, adding:
It was thanks to the struggle waged by three-revolution standard-bearers that in just two years since the 5th Congress of the Party, the numbers of Chollima workteam, Chollima factory and Chollima co-op farms increased across the country. That of Chollima workteam became over 70 000 while that of Chollima factory and Chollima co-op farms became more than 410 across the country.
