the japanese government has approved the revision of ALL jp textbooks scheduled to be released starting next year (2022) that state dokdo is japanese territory illegally* claimed by koreans. furthermore, they've outright eradicated any prominent mention of comfort women.
they are even utilizing the tokyo olympics for their propaganda, including dokdo under the japanese map for their promotions. the ioc is letting this pass due to the massive amounts of funding they receive from the jp government.
we cannot let this pass. the japanese government's aim is to erase their crimes without a single word of apology. they have already half achieved this through global soft power and covering the ears of the new generation. fighting against this NOW**, and for generations afterwards is the way to hold our rightful place.
*you dense bitch, how can it be illegal when dokdo has always belonged to korea? it is closest to OUR peninsula. furthermore, if japan claims dokdo, they will also gain control of the waters close to korea, which is another political can of worms I will not discuss here.
**activists of previous generations have already been up against right wing jp propaganda bs for literal DECADES.
we all as a collective need to speak out against racial discrimination. asians across the globe are being targeted and it is heightened because of the accusatory words that are being spewed by people in power, and the people around us. asian people are being killed and targeted. we cannot be silent, we have to speak up. here's a twitter link to a thread of carrds on what we can do to help our fellow people in their time of need.
