WW II Japanese American Draft Resister Speaks

One of 27 U.S. citizens of Japanese ancestry tried and acquitted for draft evasion in 1944 spoke about his experiences last week in California. The men refused to be drafted out of the internment camps, arguing that they should not have to serve in the military if they were going to be denied the rights of citizens.  The episode was written up in NC CrimProf Eric Muller's excellent book Free to Die for their Country.
