Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorLaborfest
Labor, War in Asia and the Lessons of the Comfort Women
The growing dangers of a war in Asia are accelerating, particularly with the U.S. strategy of “Asian Pivot”. This forum will examine what the “Asian Pivot” is and the militarization of Asia, including the construction of more bases in Okinawa and Jeju, Korea.
The Korean trade unions are against further militarization and the San Francisco Labor Council also has opposed war moves. The forum will also discuss the lessons of the “Comfort Women” and why the international effort for memorials including one in San Francisco is relevant to these issues.
Panelists: Tadashi Seto, International Solidarity Committee Doro-Chiba; Grace Shimuzu, Director of the Japanese Peruvian Oral History Project and the Campaign for Justice; Rodger Scott, AFT 2121 Executive Board CCSF and Delegate to SF Labor Council; Steve Zeltzer, CWA 39521 Pacific Media Workers Guild Human Rights Chair, KPFA WorkWeek Radio
