'Comfort Women' UK Support Group
A UK-based "Justice For Comfort Women" Support Group has just been launched today. Please show your support by liking their Facebook page.

"Just 46 (of an estimated 200,000) former 'comfort women' are still alive. Now in their 80's, they continue to show such bravery, dignity and determination in their decades-long fight for justice.
These women had a huge impact in influencing the laws of today, including the UN law regarding the rights of women impacted by war (UN Security Council 1325).
They need our support. Let us not be complacent in Japan's latest effort to silence them forever. No-one has the right to invalidate the horrors of their lived experiences."
