Yomiuri reported online that today the provincial assembly of Gyeonggi, South Korea, enacted an ordinance designating a total of 284 Japanese companies as “war crime enterprises” on account of their involvement in forced labor during Japan’s colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula. The ordinance called for printing stickers that say “war crime enterprise” for use by local schools. Schools will fasten the stickers to the companies’ products so that students can “clearly remember the companies’ war crimes” and “develop accurate perceptions of history.”
