I'm posting an important email from Clarence Moriwaki, Chair of the Bainbridge Island (WA) Japanese American Memorial Committee:
The time for public comments end the day after tomorrow, Wednesday June 15, to the National Parks Service on the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Memorial.
The internment apologists have organized a nation-wide email campaign against us, and the National Parks Service has informed me that they are "bombarded" with emails saying "no tax dollars" with the typical messages, sometimes racist, of justifying the mass exclusion and other vile nonsense.
It is critical to show that our project has widespread support.
All that's needed is a simple email message to firstname.lastname@example.org before June 15.
1. Please state that you support the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Memorial (Nidoto Nai Yoni - Let it not happen again) and site at least one reason, such as first JA in American history under Civilian Exclusion Order No. 1 to be sent to internment camps; internment was wrong; etc.
