Fighting for dignity as a human being
- The 500th Anniversary of Wednesday Demonstration
by the Former Comfort Women of Seoul

Since former Korean Comfort women, identified themselves ten years ago, are demonstrating every Wednesday in front of the Japanese Embassy in Seoul demanding for the truth to be revealed and for an official apology from the Japanese government. The 500th such demonstration was held on Wednesday March 13, 2002.

I reported on the former comfort women issue in Seoul, which is considered as a past disgrace by the Korean citizens.

Sky was clear in Seoul. We were in front of the Japanese Embassy. Six women, who were forced to serve as sex slaves (former-comfort women) by the Japanese Imperial Army,

were in a black microbus passing through heavy traffic in Seoul and reached the narrow street leading to the Japanese Embassy. As expected, approximately thirty mobile police in black uniform, were blocking the street by forming barriers.
