In Memoriam: Sharin Chiorazzo

On Saturday, September 24, I took a trip down to Galloway, New Jersey for a reunion of sorts with the main people who dedicated themselves to the fight for the freedom of Farouk Abdel-Muhti (a two-year struggle retold in the documentary Enemy Alien).

Other Lives: Ten Years of 9/11

Any loss of life through indiscriminate violence is to be mourned and its perpetrators brought to justice. But the value of life and the principle of justice do not only apply to American citizens. Without liberty, there is no life, without life there is no liberty.

Tule Lake Pilgrimage 2010

Tule Lake was the largest of the World War II incarceration camps for Japanese Americans, where the United States segregated thousands of incarcerees falsely designated as "disloyals." But this camp was also the site of some of the most heroic acts of resistance to the most heroic acts of resistance by Japanese Americans took place. At a key point in Enemy Alien I discover how the resistance at Tule Lake resonates with the protests Farouk organized with his fellow detainees.
