Happy birthday to the late, great activist Yuri Kochiyama!

In honor of her birthday, Nikkei Democracy Project put together the video below (with footage from Renee Tajima-Pena’s doc MY AMERICA…OR HONK IF YOU LOVE BUDDHA). Check it out and if you don’t know who Kochiyama is, now’s as good a time as any to look her up and learn about her many contributions to the progressive movement.
