Japanese-American Internment in America
There are those too young to remember or those who have not learned of the internment of Japanese citizens by this country during World War II. This disgraceful imprisonment of citizens and others determined to be "enemy combatants" without formal charges or trial betrayed some of the most valuable prinicples of this country.
We must remember that none of us is safe from abrogation of our civil right unless all of us are safe.
Please, take a moment to learn more about the Internment of Japanese citizens during the Second World War and the current imprisonments at Guantánamo Bay

"We are the children of the Pacific islands . . . by blood line, by birth, marriage, cultural heritage, choice, or simply by association - but most certainly by the conviction in our hearts, minds and spirit. We are from Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia - Fiji, Guam, Hawai'i, Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, Republic of Palau, American and Western Samoa, and Tonga. We are all equally as proud of our shared Pacific roots as we are of the rich heritage that makes each one of our cultures so unique and gives us that special identity."
