Co-emcees Satsuki Ina of the Tule Lake Committee and Jon Osaki
of JCYC read a statement from the consortium, which consists of
more than a dozen community organizations: “Since and before the
elections, there has been a rise in incidents of hate throughout
the country, which appear to be emboldened by the misogynistic,
xenophobic and racist rhetoric of the Trump campaign. The
Southern Poverty Law Center, to date, has documented more than
700 incidents since the elections alone, including physical
assaults and racist vandalism. “As a community that knows all
too well the effects of wartime hysteria, racial prejudice and
the failure of political leadership, the Japanese American
community responds, using our own experience as a stark reminder
of the effects of the deprivation of civil liberties…

The FAA is considering Modoc County’s application to construct an 8-foot high, 16,000-foot long fence to surround the Tule Lake airport to ostensibly prevent deer and other wildlife from wandering onto the runway, despite scant evidence of incidents with wildlife or people interfering with the crop duster planes that use the airport. Because the airport is located in the center of the former Tule Lake Segregation Site, a fence would destroy not only the physical and historic integrity of the site where 18,000 people were imprisoned, but also the psychological and emotional collective memory of a place that is held within the boundaries of this vast prison camp.
Site tours would no longer be possible and many former prisoners and their descendants would no longer be able to explore the areas where their families were once imprisoned. Visitors would no longer be able to traverse the Site to experience the dimension and magnitude of the Site, to gain a sense of the distances family members walked in their daily routine to eat meals, attend school, do laundry and use the latrines. A fence would essentially prevent a serious appreciation of what life was like during the incarceration.
The FAA is close to completing its evaluation of the impact this proposed fence would have on the historic integrity of the Site. We are urged to solicit letters from as many people as possible to object to the proposed fence because it would destroy the setting, feeling, and association of the Tule Lake Segregation Center site. A fence of that magnitude would cause such a physical alteration to the historic setting of the Site that it would prevent visitors from interacting with the actual physical landscape and from seeing what remains of former structures. A fence would significantly interfere with the personal reflection of former prisoners, their descendants and other visitors who seek an understanding of the conditions under which more than 18,000 people were incarcerated.
Let's not allow Tule Lake, a place that represents the destruction of thousands of Japanese American hopes and dreams, to be destroyed with an unneeded fence. The FAA needs Nikkei community responses about the detrimental effects of the proposed fence. We ask that you write a short letter or email to the FAA describing how a fence surrounding the runway would be a detriment to experiencing the setting, feeling, and association of the site.
Your letter or email should be addressed to:

Never Again: Japanese American WWII History and American Muslim Rights Today
Sunday, Feb. 19 at 2 3:30 p.m.
Central Library, 1000 4th Ave, Seattle, Washington 98104 - Join us for Never Again: Japanese American WWII History and American Muslim Rights Today, a presentation and conversation examining Japanese American incarceration during World War II and how it relates to racism today. Presented in partnership with Densho, CAIR-Washington State and ACLU of Washington. Feb. 19, 2017 marks the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, which led to the incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans. To mark this anniversary, Densho executive director Tom Ikeda and Arsalan Bukhari, executive director of the Washington chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, will discuss the correlation between the Japanese American past and the treatment of law-abiding American Muslim children and families today. The presenters will also talk about what Seattleites can do to prevent harassment and discrimination of American Muslims in their community

RESISTANCE REMEMBERED, RECOGNIZED AT TULE LAKE, July 31, 2016 - https://www.rafu.com/2016/07/resistance-remembered-recognized-at-tule-lake/ Last paragraph: “At the convention on July 12, JACL passed a resolution in support of the establishment of the Tule Lake National Historic Site and for protecting and preserving the entire historic site.” (the entire site includes more than 6000 acres, including the Tulelake Airport. The TuleLake Committee is suing the Tulelake airport, City of Tulelake and Modoc County to ‘stop the security fence’ which prevents fatal accidents on the runway. They want to acquire the airport property in addition to the more than 1400 acres they’ve already taken.)
