When the BBC reported the “deal” between Japan and South Korea on the Comfort Women issue last week, saying that ‘South Korea says it will consider the matter resolved “finally and irreversibly” if Japan fulfills its promises,’ LKL marvelled that no mention was made of what the victims themselves thought about the deal.
They don’t think much of it.
Supporters of the victims will be protesting outside the South Korean embassy in London on Wednesday 6 January. The event in London will happen simultaneously with similar events in Berlin, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Demonstrations have recently taken place in Paris and Toronto.
