Sad Francisco

Feb 10, 2023

Japanese politicians want to erase the history of the 200,000 women who were forced by the Japanese military into sexual slavery. Statues around the world remember the "comfort women" from places including China, Korea, the Phillipines, and Japan itself, but it's been a battle.

Kota from Against Japanism joins us in the treaty capitol of the world. 

Part 1 is here, with guest Judith Mirkinson from the Comfort Women Justice Coalition.
