Japan Accused of Reviving Militarism

Pyongyang, August 31 (KCNA) — Members of the Society of Bereaved Families of the Pacific War Dead in south Korea held a meeting in front of the Japanese embassy in Seoul on Aug. 29 denouncing Japan for distorting history and reviving militarism, according to the south Korean MBC.

Its participants lodged a strong protest with the Tokyo metropolitan educational authorities against having decided on Aug. 26 to let students use a distorted history textbook from April next year against the backdrop of Japan’s evermore undisguised moves to tamper with history as evidenced by its acts to embellish its war of aggression and cover up its past crimes related to the sexual slavery.

They also chided Japan for such moves for the revival of militarism as the visit of a group of Japanese ministers to the “Yasukuni Shrine” on August 15 and the beefing up of the Japanese “Self-defence Forces”.

During the meeting they had a ceremony of burning a Japanese flag, etc. and threw eggs into the Japanese embassy building.
