58. Wednesday Protest

Wednesday August 27, 2008

I went to a Wednesday Protest before my departure to Japan. Many Koreans and Japanese, and Korean "comfort women" *halmunis were protesting in front of the Japanese Embassy. I wished the halmunis good health and long life as I said good-bye to them.

* "halmunis" in Korean, or "ahmas" in Taiwanese means "grandmas". (In Asia, elders are commonly referred to as grandmother or grandfather, whether you are related to them or not, as a way of showing respect.)
