Carter Dimesa started this petition to Prime Minister Suga Yoshihide of Japan

In the year 1910, the Japanese Empire annexed Korea and stayed until 1945. During their annexation of Korea, Japan’s goal was to eradicate the Korean race off the planet entirely, the Korean language was outlawed, Koreans were forced to change their names, Koreans were forcefully converted to Shintoism, and millions of innocent Korean souls were enslaved, tortured, drafted into Japan’s military, or killed, all for the “crime” of existing, in short, this was genocide. This was a genocide that has caused great pain to Korean families all over the world generations later, my own family included. Perhaps the worst of Japan’s crimes was their use of, as they called them, “comfort women”. Do not let this name deceive you, these women were sex slaves, hundreds of thousands of innocent and very young Korean women were kidnapped from their homes and sent into a life of sex slavery. These young women were raped multiple times a day for years by Japanese soldiers, many of them committed suicide. Despite all of this, Japan’s government has yet to not only formally apologize for this genocide, but many government officials deny that it ever happened. With this petition, I am calling on Japan's Prime Minister Suga Yoshihide to issue a formal and sincere apology and recognition of the genocide that the Japanese Empire committed in Korea, as any past attempt at an "apology" from Japan has been shamefully insincere, and have also been one sided political deals, which strongly favored Japan, posed as "apologies". Apologies should be sincere and should show remorse, and not a complicated political scam. The survivors of this genocide are growing old, they try to speak out about their hardships but are often silenced and ignored, and they have yet to receive a sincere and formal apology from the Japanese Government. The time is now for the Japanese Government to issue a formal and sincere apology so that the few remaining victims, as well as their families, may feel at peace about this issue.
