74 years since

Protesters display placards during a rally by comfort women or wartime sex slaves near the Presidential Palace to mark the 74th anniversary of the end of World War II on Wednesday in Manila. In their statement, the protesters lamented the fact that after 74 years since the end of World War II, Japan still "refuses to atone for its wartime atrocities and has now embarked on a campaign to silence efforts to commemorate by causing the removal of all memorials related to the issue."
