PETITION TO JAPANESE GOVERNMENT (x)
We condemn the rape apologist statements made by Mayor Toru Hasimoto on Japan’s “comfort women,” and call on government leaders to admit their blame and begin compensation talks immediately.
"Historians believe Japan forced up to 200,000 Chinese and Korean women to be sex slaves during WWII.Women who survived — and weren’t shamed into silence – have described being recruited for labor, then beaten and raped by as many as 40 Japanese officers a day.
The Japanese government still won’t admit these women were actually kidnapped and raped. And now Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto has decided to give his take on the atrocities: rape and kidnapping were “necessary” to sate the lust and harness the virility of Japan’s soldiers.
