1. Flashback: Workers' World Party Kim Il Sung obit →

    Sectarian parties, small in size and largely reliant on volunteers, take a while to respond to an important media event like the death of the Dear Leader.

    Here are some comradely words on the death of his father:

    Workers World Party values our close, comradely relations with the Workers Party of Korea very highly. We are proud to have known Kim Il Sung as a great leader and a comrade in the international communist movement. And it is with the most profound sense of loss that we mark his passing. Yet it is also with the greatest revolutionary optimism that we are confident that Comrade Kim Il Sung’s legacy will live on with your efforts to win new victories for the Korean people. His contributions and achievements for the cause of international socialism for all humanity will never be forgotten.
