Another sex-slavery statue will be established however this time, outside of Korea.

A group of Korean-Americans‘s former chief said today that they will set up a girl’s statue symbolizing victims of Japan’s wartime sexual slavery at a civil rights movement museum in the city of Atlanta, Georgia.

Kim Baek-kyu, former head of the South Korean resident group in Atlanta, said, “We will erect the statue at the Center for Civil and Human Rights,” without giving a date when it will be set up.

Located in downtown Atlanta and opened in 2014, the center is a museum dedicated to the achievement of both the civil rights movement in the United States in the 1950s-1960s and the broader worldwide human rights movement.

The statue in Busan has caused a large political ripple with Japan, who recalled its ambassador last month in protest.
