During the Asia-Pacific War from early 1930s to 1945, Japan had forcefully mobilized girls and young women for sex slavery to battle fields and violated their human rights. After the war, they were either slaughtered or abandoned to death, never to return. Even after some survivors came back to their home country, and reparations were not made to them as Japan concealed and distorted its own crimes. The survivors were forced to silence their sufferings for more than 50 years.

As the Korean feminist movement for the Resolution jf the Japanese Military Sexual slavery ("Comfort Women") issue started in Korea in early 1990s, victims started to speak and report Japan's crime to the world. They also have demanded the Japanese expanded across Asia to international community and lead to gain global sympathy with the resolution from international human rights organizations including UN and ILO who defined Japanese Military Sexual Slavery as a war crime and a crime against humanity. They have recommended the official apology and legal reparation followed by the other measures to the Japanese Government.

However, Japanese government has ignored these demands by victims and international community and avoided legal responsibilities on the government-led war crime, only to cover them up by raising private fund for "atonement money" instead. Furthermore, rather than redressing their damage, it has denied forceful mobilization of 'comfort women', which distorted the nature of the crime, insulted victims, which violated their rights, and abuses human rights activists working in Japan to support the victims. These are ongoing violations of human rights, which is not appropriate for the member of UNHRC to take.

Toward international community and human rights organizations, we announce that the resolution of the Japanese Military Sexual Slavery issue is a task that all humanity should join and work together for. Besides, in order to restore victims' human rights through the apology and reparation to them immediately in effect and to prevent violence against women in armed conflicts like sex slavery and systemic rape, we will make cooperative efforts with the global community.

To do this, we promote <100 Million Signatures Campaign for the Resolution of the Japanese Military Sexual Slavery issue>.

We demand as followings


- Japanese government should admit state responsibilities for the Japanese Military Sexual slavery, and make official apology and legal reparation to the victims!

- Victim countries' governments including Korea should take proactive diplomatic measures to Japan and international community to restore victims' human rights!

- International organizations including UN and ILO should urge the Japanese government to follow recommendations by international organizations and resolve this issue immediately!
