SDHF Newsletter No.372 The Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan
The Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan (The Korean Council) were not able to distinguish “comfort women” from “Volunteer Corps”
Speech made in front of the Comfort Woman Statue in Seoul

The point of Byeong Heon Kim’s speech is that The Korean Council, which led the campaign accusing Japan for enslaving comfort women and regularly gathered in front of the comfort girl statute in downtown Seoul for 30 years, is so ignorant in not being able to distinguish “comfort women” from members of the “volunteer corps.”
The Council changed its name to the “Korean Council for Justice and Remembrance for the Issue of Military Sexual Slavery by Japan,” perhaps because it finally realized its mistake.
However, Dr. Kim, Representative of the Korean History Textbook Research Institute, asks “What is ‘justice’”? “Justice” is in fact teaching children actual history and to recognize actual history, but the “Council for Justice” teaches children a completely false history of the comfort women.
