Feelings about redress

Transcripts available in the following languages:

The redress itself, the apology certainly, I think that was very appropriate. The redress, I just felt that it was, too little too late. And that the redress itself was actually an easy way for the government of the United States to get the hook off the back. By saying “Okay we paid you off, don’t complain anymore.” So that’s what I felt, but it happened anyway. It helps a lot of people.
