Comfort Women deal protested at Ban Ki-moon speech

Comfort Women protest

The Justice for ‘Comfort Women’ UK group held a quiet protest outside Westminster Central Hall yesterday as people filed in to listen to a talk by Ban Ki-moon. The dignified campaign continued inside: as Ban got up to speak, a protestor held up a sign demanding that the intergovernmental “deal” be annulled. Ban’s speech was targeted because of his reported support for the agreement. “Ban deserves censure for unilaterally praising the agreement, which fails UN standards for redress as it was not victim-centred,” said the group.  More photos on the Justice of Comfort Women UK website and Facebook page.
