The VANKers are at it again – this time they are going to send a book to President Obama:
VANK is a non-governmental organization that seeks to correct Japan’s distortions of history. It was established in 1999 to act as a cyber civilian diplomatic resource for Korea by publicizing “correct history” abroad both online and offline. It has more than 70,000 members.
The organization published its own 100-page booklet called “May we speak” in English which introduces the history of Japanese rule in Korea.
It contains facts about historic events such as the 1895 murder of Empress Myeongseong by Japanese soldiers during the Joseon Kingdom (1392-1910), the sending of envoys to The Hague and the dethronement of Emperor Gojong, the colonial rule of Japan in Korea, the story of Korean sex slaves for the Japanese military, as well as Japan’s claims over Korea’s easternmost islets of Dokdo.
Why, you ask?
“We hope the package will help global leaders learn about the proper history of Korea and the atrocities committed by Japan.”
Wonder if I can get a copy?
