North Korean news agency KCNA covered the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations yesterday and Kim Jong Il’s favorite media outlet called the protests “an eruption of the wrath on the greed of capital and economic inequality.”
KCNA, which is short for Korean Central News Agency of DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea), published a report entitled “‘Occupy Wall Street’ Demo Goes Worldwide” that took note of how the protests are “rapidly spreading all over the world” with demonstrations in “Rome of Italy,” “Berlin of Germany” and “Tokyo of Japan.”
“Emergency alert was issued in major cities of various countries due to those demos,” reads KCNA’s report.
According to KCNA, the protests are proof capitalism is failing.
“Analysts say that this situation sweeping the world, an eruption of the wrath on the greed of capital and economic inequality, shows the reality of the capitalist system put in peril,” reported KCNA.
Yesterday, along with its article about Occupy Wall Street, KCNA published an account of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il’s visit to the Tongbong Co-op Farm. KCNA reported Kim Jong Il as saying “that he was very pleased to see the farmers leading a happy life in modern dwelling houses where cooking is done by methane.”
If only the American people could be as “happy” as those North Korean farmers!
