Global Action Day –the1000th Wednesday Demonstrations
(12/14/11 at 11:30am-12:30pm in front of the Japanese Embassy, 2520 Massachusetts Ave Washington D.C., DC 20008)
the following demands to the Japanese government are made:
1. Acknowledge the war crime
2. Reveal the truth in its entirety about the crimes of military sexual slavery
3. Make an official apology
4. Make legal reparations
5. Punish those responsible for the war crime.
6. Accurately record the crime in the history textbooks
The 1000th Wednesday Demonstration is the cradle of peace and human rights movement against war and gender-based violence. In spite of Japan’s persistent inaction to commit to its responsibility, the Wednesday Demonstration has turned into a place for peace and women’s human rights. The demonstration has also become a living site for educating history and bringing people together in solidarity beyond gender, borders, ideologies under one cause – to ensure justice. The victimized survivors have proudly become human rights activists, spreading new hope to the many suffering women around the globe.
This coming December 14th, the Wednesday Demonstration will mark its
1000th weekly protest rain or shine. Please join the Wednesday Demonstration which has filled every Wednesday with a message of justice- “Justice to Comfort Women.” The 1000th protest will be held as an international solidarity action calling for restoration of justice for the victims.
