<span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:10.5pt;mso-bidi-font-size:
11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">We send our sisterhood and peaceful
greetings to you from Seoul, Korea.

11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">“The Korean Council for the Women
Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan” (The Korean Council) is an
organization striving to resolve matters in regards to military sexual slavery
by Japan before and during WWII, which is one of the most tragic wartime
violation against women's human rights. Since 1990, the Korean Council has endeavored
to bring back justice and dignity to the victims. Our continuous campaigns have
drawn great attention from international and domestic supporters.

<span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:10.5pt;mso-bidi-font-size:
11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">However, the survivors are still in
the dark where justice is not fulfilled. The Japanese government has avoided
its responsibility for over a half of century. Furthermore, recently, their
governmental officials and leaders publicly denied the crime and claimed that it
is a fabricated history. Collectively, we can see the revival of militarism from
their attempt for rearmament through revision of the constitution and glorifying
their war crimes.

<span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:10.5pt;mso-bidi-font-size:
11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">The Japanese Military Sexual Slavery
is not just the matter between Korea and other victimized countries and Japan. It
is the matter of the world’s human rights especially on the wartime violence
against women. To restore the survivors’ dignity and stop the violence against
women under armed conflicts, we call for your attention and support.
