Testimonial Night
With “Comfort Woman” Lola Fedencia David, 80 years old

Who came all the way from the Philippines to tell her story to Filipinos and Canadians about the horrendous sufferings she experienced in the hands of the Japanese military during World War II.

Please join us to congratulate the success of her efforts and those of three other visiting “comfort women” from China, Korea and The Netherlands: the   motion asking for formal apology from the Japanese government to all victims of sexual slavery imposed by the Japanese Imperial Army during WWII in Asia was passed UNANIMOUSLY in the Canadian House of Commons on Nov 28, 2007. (Campaign was organized by Toronto ALPHA.)

LET’S SHOW OUR APPRECIATION FOR HER COURAGE IN FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE!

WHEN:     Sunday, December 2, 2007, 6:30 p.m.
WHERE:    Reception Hall, May Robinson Seniors Apartments
20 West Lodge Ave. (Queen St. W./Lansdowne)
