Petition for Pu’uhonua NOT more prisons

Saturday, April 15th, 2017

Please sign petition and share widely.  Mahalo.


Subject: Invest in Pu`uhonua; stop building more prisons


Since 2000 we have been looking for an alternative to prison. Prisons are based on punishment; what is needed today is healing. Pu`uhonua is a Hawaiian alternative for prison. Instead of wasting taxpayers’ money down the black hole of building more prisons, invest in Pu`uhonua

That’s why I created a petition to Governor David Ige, which says:

“Pu`uhonua are: decentralized Wellness Centers where the traditional ho’opono’pono process of making right will be used to help heal individuals, families, and communities.  Pu’uhonua centers are for the good of all Hawai’i’s people and can provide real hope in saving money, reducing recidivism, crime prevention, and long-term positive change.”

Report on Hilo Women’s march Jan. 21

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

I’m just home from the Hilo Women’s March.  Despite Rainy weather the turn out was massive.  My estimate would be over 2000, perhaps 3000.  The program of music and speakers was excellent and really built for unity. Jackie Pualani Johnson lead off with a beautiful Kahea (Call) that set the positive tone for the rights of women, native people and other people of color, the poor, people with disabilities, Muslims, immigrants, and issues of health care, climate disaster, and peace. There will be important work in the days ahead to support one another as the Trump agenda is brought forward.

Stand in solidarity always,

Jim Albertini

The link below is from an important source that runs word press security which includes the Malu Aina website.  It’s the best I’ve seen on the technical bogus aspect of trying to blame the Russians for hacking US elections.
