Neoliberal nightmares come true

Sad Francisco 10: Nationalism vs. History: The Comfort Women Statues (Part 1)

Japanese politicians want to erase the history of the 200,000 women who were forced by the Japanese military into sexual slavery. Statues around the world remember the “comfort women” from places including China, Korea, the Phillipines, and Japan itself, but it’s been a battle.

Guest: Judith Mirkinson from the Comfort Women Justice Coalition.

Part 2, with Kota from Against Japanism is coming later this week.
