  • Five Japanese-American elders protested Saturday at the Fort Sill army base in Oklahoma, where the Trump administration plans to indefinitely detain 1,400 migrant children. Fort Sill was an internment camp for 700 Japanese-American men in 1942. It was one of more than 70 sites where the U.S. government incarcerated about 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II.#DemocracyNowDemocracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

    Wow it sounds like the military guy was just pissed off because there were protesters there..
    I would've asked him what part of the Constitution did he not understand..

    That guy is violating their constitutional rights. That land is paid for by taxpayers therefore they have every right to peaceably assemble there. His anger does not override the first amendment.

    To the Americans of Japanese descent, protesting the incarceration of Latinos and their children, I would like to give two thumbs up!

    The biggest concentration camp ever built in human history is Gaza.

    Why don't European Americans call themselves European Americans instead of Americans? 🤔 Is it because they feel entitled to live on stolen land?

    Sadly if they’re lucky these children will get a half hearted apology from the U.S government in about 50 years. Of course by then irreparable damage would’ve been done.

    Good for you fight for those people. I just want to say I'm so sorry that happened to you!

    Brave old people full of conscience. Assets to the community. American authorities, like many, just wont deal with it's fk ups of the past and so repeats them, like idiots. Unless they don't believe those were injustices, so repeating is deliberate, which is more chilling

    My Japanese grandfather fled to Mexico to avoid these camps, how can you support the side who signed the Executive Order 9066?
