Comfort woman statue
What’s become of the “comfort woman” statue that was removed by the authorities soon after it was installed by a brave group earlier this year on Roxas Boulevard?
A recent report said Osaka has cut its 60-year sister-city ties with San Francisco because that city set up its statue honoring comfort women in SF’s Chinatown.
Japan has long played down the scale of its World War II military brothels, where Chinese and Filipino women were kept captive, and Tokyo has offered only half-hearted apologies for it.
For Manila to kowtow to the Japanese for their aid is downright disgusting.
