Japan: After 62 years...still waiting for justice

, Index number: ASA 22/013/2007

This postcard urges Members of the European Parliament to call on the government of Japan to restore the dignity of women known as "comfort women" by accepting full responsibility for the "comfort women" system. These women were enslaved and brutalized by the Japanese military before and during World War II. They have not been fairly compensated and, to date, the Japanese National Assembly has failed to offer these women a clear and full apology.
