I-Hotel

When was the last time you saw 5,000 people gathered together to fight for the rights of the elderly in the Asian American community?

In 1977, eviction of Filipinos and Chinese tenants from the International Hotel in San Francisco became one of the historical struggles for Asian Americans.

Today, a new International Hotel is open on Kearny Street in San Francisco. It is writing a new chapter of history. Yet, the solidarity among ethnic groups within the Asian American community has become less visible since the good old days of the '60s.

Let's hope that we will always learn from our history and continue to be there for each other in all forms of struggles for justice.

Return to the good old days of the '60s? No thank you. I suspect that the reasons for Asian solidarity back in the 1960s was because the threats against the Asian community were greater back then.

Just look at the parallels in the Black community where after society was more or less desegregated, the civil rights movement ran out of steam.
