Japanese-American Survivors of WWII Internment Camp Protest Trump Detention Plans at Fort Sill

HeadlineJun 24, 2019

And on Saturday, Japanese-American activists and survivors of U.S. internment camps engaged in civil disobedience outside the Fort Sill Army post in Oklahoma, where the Trump administration plans to indefinitely detain 1,400 immigrant and refugee children starting next month. Fort Sill was used as an internment camp for Japanese Americans in 1942. This is Michael Ishii, who helped organize Saturday’s protest.

Michael Ishii: “I am here, a descendant, to support my elders, who have come to bear witness and to raise their collective voices in opposition to mass detention.”
