November 17 is the day of humiliation for the Korean nation.
110 years ago, Japan surrounded the palace of Feudal Chosun with its heavily armed troops and forced Korea to ink the “Ulsa Five-Point Treaty” in violation of the norms of international law.
Since then, Korea had been deprived of its national sovereignty with the result that the Korean nation had been subjected to the bitter fate of being a ruined nation.
Japan had enforced colonial fascist rule for nearly four decades to impose upon Koreans immeasurable sufferings and spiritual and material damage.
Nevertheless, Japan, refusing to redeem their past crimes, has made frantic bid to distort history beautifying their unhappy past.

The south Korean authorities has tuned a deaf ear to unhappy past crimes, in contrary, it is engrossing in treacherous acts against the same brethren in league with Japan, driving the south Korean people into fury.
On Nov. 2, the south Korean chief executive invited Japanese prime minister Abe to Seoul to work bloodshot eye to bolster military alliance with south Korea, the US and Japan.
The Solidarity for Peace and Reunification and members under the People’s Action against War and for Peace held a press conference on Nov. 2 at which they accused Japanese prime minster Abe of pushing forward the the "Self-Defense Forces" advance into the peninsula without making any apology for the past crimes.
70 civic organizations including the Solidarity for Progress held a press conference at Gwanghwamun square at which they said that they are disappointed at the government’s attitude to hold talks with Japan debating its rearmament of militarism and reinvasion of the peninsula.
