We’re Keeping the (Syrian) Oil” says Trump

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney plundered Iraq’s oil.

Barack Obama looted the Libyan oil fields.

In Hawaii, the U.S. assisted sugar companies in the illegal overthrow and more than 125 years of illegal occupation of an independent nation.

**********************************

Former President of the Soviet Union, 88 year old Mikhail Gorbachev has warned that current tension between Russia and the West is putting the world in “colossal danger” due to the threat from nuclear weapons. He called for all countries to declare that nuclear weapons should be destroyed to save ourselves and the planet.

Military Conflict Between Russia and the U.S. Looms in Northeast Syria

Tensions are also rising between nuclear armed India and Pakistan.

A nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia could be catastrophic for the entire planet. The immediate effects of a nuclear war just between India and Pakistan could cause up to 125 million deaths, a new study published in Science Advances has found. That’s 2.5 times the fatalities of the Second World War. The study also said such a war would cause mass starvation and ecosystem disruption globally. www.newsweek.com/nuclear-war-india-pakistan-death-toll-ww2-1462550

Today, nine countries have nuclear weapons: the U.S., Russia, France, China, Great Britain, Pakistan, India, Israel, and North Korea. Abolish Nukes & War Now!

Make Peace with Justice! Save the Planet!

1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.

Aloha kakou,

Nov. 6, 2019 at UH Hilo Theater starting at 9:45 AM  Written testimony must be submitted by Tuesday, Nov. 5th at 9:45 AM .  Send to bor.testimony@hawaii.edu.  For more information see a KAHEA post here  https://org.salsalabs.com/o/2699/p/dia/action4/common/public/?action_KEY=23844

Below is my written tesstimony.  Mahalo. Jim Albertini

Aloha UH President David Lassner and Board of Regent members,

Below is a short  statement on why Mauna Kea is so sacred to Hawaiians by Kealoha Pisciotta.  I stand in solidarity with Kealoha and other Native Hawaiian

cultural practitioners.

I stand in opposition to the latest proposed  UH Management rules for Mauna Kea. 

Rules for managing Hawaii’s most sacred temple, Mauna Kea, should be made by Kanaka Maoli/Native Hawaiian Cultural practitioners,

not the University Board of Regents and State of Hawaii officials. 

President Lassner and Board of Regents — Get back to doing the work of education and stop desecrating Hawaii’s most sacred temple. You have done enough damage.

Mahalo and aloha,

Jim Albertini
