PLEASE READ THIS POST
See this statue? It’s located at the Glendale Central Library.
Big deal right? Yes. Yes it is.
She stands here today as a memorial for the victims of the sexual slavery and abuse committed by the Japanese imperial military during WWII. Right now, Japan is running a petition to take her down.
We cannot let this happen.
Every Wednesday, the woman of Korea that were used as sexual slaves protest and cry out. However, Japan refuses to acknowledge their suffering. There have been no apologies and no recognition.
Please, please don’t let them get rid of her. Their pain deserves to be recognized and sympathized.
Thank you so much for reading this. Even if you can’t sign this, please signal boost so other people will.
[[A big thank you to tumblr user did-we-just-marry-thedevil for bringing this to my attention]]
If this statue is taken down, we are erasing the memories and pain of the thousands of Korean (and Chinese) sex slaves during WWII. As a Korean female myself, this is even more disheartening.
Please signal boost.
