To Whom it May Concern,

I urge the Japanese Prime Minister to acknowledge, apologize and appropriately compensate the Korean, Chinese and Filipino women who were forced into prostitution during WWII. I further urge your government to implement measures for investigation and disclosure of the history; inclusion in textbooks; erection of monuments; and punishment of criminals involved in this tragedy.
