Mass Movement Launched during War
Pyongyang, July 24 (KCNA) -- During the last Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953), the peasants in the DPRK turned out as one in the struggle to increase the wartime food production despite the aggressors' bombing and shelling.

In the course of the struggle, many peasants fully displayed their patriotism by taking an active part in the campaign for donating relief grains to the war front.

In November Juche 41 (1952), peasants in Phyongwon County of South Phyongan Province donated to the war front lots of bags of rice they prepared through increased grain production.

The torch of patriotism, kindled by them, spread all over the country in a moment and developed into a mass campaign for donating relief grains to the front.

The peasants across the country donated 3,000 tons of relief grains to the war front by the end of April 1953.

Many peasants took part in the campaign and all of them presented to President Kim Il Sung letters carrying their firm determination to produce more grains for the war victory.

The President read each of those letters and sent replies to them, highly appreciating their successes and patriotic enthusiasm and encouraging them to the drive for increased grain production.

Encouraged by his great trust, peasants across the country strived to send more grains to their sons and daughters on the war front.

The campaign for donating relief grains to the front, launched on a wide scale with the patriotic devotion of peasants, contributed to hastening the final victory in the war and greatly encouraged the soldiers of the People's Army on the war front to more heroically fight against the aggressors.
