by Text: R.R. Photos: Chris Cassell
Immigration issues of today parallel the Japanese American experience during WWII, when families were removed from their homes on the U.S. West Coast to distant locations and incarcerated. Racism was, and is, at the core of both. The 39th annual Day of Remembrance on February 17th featured reminiscence, music, and a march through historic San José Japantown that was also a protest of Trump's National Emergency, announced two days earlier.

by Peace Worker
Veterans for Peace chapters across the nation gathered on street corners in major cities to commemorate the original Armistice Day by ringing bells 11 times at 11 am on the eleventh day of November. In San José, Chapter 101 held a ceremony in front of City Hall. WWI ended on November 11th in 1918 and one year later the world came together in realization that war is so horrible it must end forever. That was the first Armistice Day; Congress officially changed the name to Veterans Day in 195...
