The Big Nuclear Missile Question

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Demilitarize Hawai’i & the World

The January 13, 2018 false message traumatized many in Hawai’i

     The big question about the False North Korean missile attack on Hawai’i is: will it fuel more pro war nonsense, including missile defense, ‘attack Korea before Korea attacks us’ mentality, people digging wishful fallout shelters, etc. OR WILL IT FUEL A GROWING MOVEMENT AGAINST WAR, FOR NUCLEAR ABOLITION, AND A DEMILITARIZED FREE HAWAI’I AND WORLD ? How we now respond to the question is what’s important. I’m for No Nukes, No War and a Demilitarized Free Hawai’i and world!. I believe the only shelter is peace. How about you?

      Hawai’i has more than 100 U.S. military sites, including major force installations for the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines, including the Pacific Command (PACOM) that covers more than half the earth. Instead of protecting Hawai’i, these military sites make Hawai’i a prime target for attack. Common sense says “Remove the targets!”

125 Years of U.S. Occupation: U.S. OUT — Free Hawai’i Now!

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Please pass the word on this solidarity action for a Free Hawaii — “Hawaii Loa Ku like  kakou” — All Hawaii Stand Together.  Mahalo.

 

125 Years of U.S. Occupation 

      On January 17, 1893 a coup d’état was carried out against Queen Lili’uokalani and the Hawaiian Kingdom by foreign resident business interests with the assistance of U.S. Marines from the USS Boston. An illegal U.S. occupation of Hawai’i has continued ever since. Contrary to popular belief there never was a Treaty of Annexation. Commemoration ceremonies are scheduled on Jan. 17, 2018 in Honolulu at Iolani Palace. For more information see http://www.onipaakakou.org/

      Today, occupied Hawai’i is home to more than 100 U.S. military installations, a runaway tourist industry and settler population that has turned Hawai’i into a playground for rich land speculators. Nearly 1 in every 2 households can’t cover basic needs.  Native Hawaiians (Kanaka Maoli), who make up 20% of the population, now make up the majority of homeless and 60% of the prison population in their own homeland. The sacred Kanaka Maoli temple — Mauna Kea, is being desecrated and vandalized by scientific development, and 90% of food consumed in Hawai’i is now imported to what was once a 100% food self sufficient society.

U.S. Out!  Free Hawai’i Now!

. 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.

Hawaii Plutonium Fallout from Nuclear Tests on Johnston Atoll

Papaikou, Hawaii has the highest level of Plutonium fallout of any site tested globally in this U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) study published in the prestigious British journal Nature. What a distinction to have! Papaikou appears to be representative of the windward sides of the Hawaiian islands. High rainfall likely brought down the fallout from nuclear tests done at Johnston atoll. Twelve atomic and hydrogen bombs were tested at Johnston atoll, located 900 miles southwest of the Big island. Plutonium has a half-life of 24,000 years. https://www.davistownmuseum.org/cbm/RadxPlutonium.html

“THIS IS NOT A DRILL”

A Citizens Response to the Growing Threat of Nuclear War &

Hawaii’s Monthly Nuclear Attack Siren Tests

NO NUKES!

NO WAR!

NO NEED SIRENS!

     On Tuesday, January 2, 2018, and the first working day of each following month, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency will test its nuclear attack warning sirens statewide at 11:45AM.

     Wherever you are, come out into a visible public place, in your neighborhood, along a public roadway, etc. and hold a sign for 15-30 minutes from 11:30-12 noon on the day of the Nuclear Attack Siren Test with a message such as “No Nukes, No War, No Need Sirens, The Only Shelter is Peace.” The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency wants us to know that if the sirens wail and its not a drill people will have only 15 minutes notice to take shelter before a possible nuclear explosion.

     Malu ‘Aina’s message is “the only shelter is Peace.” Nuclear weapons have made our world defenseless. The only real defense against nuclear weapons is to stop building them. On July 7, 2017 the UN General Assembly overwhelming voted (122 yes, 1 no) to abolish nuclear weapons. Earth’s future now hangs in the balance. The U.S. is the only country on earth to ever use nuclear weapons. Today the U.S. has Korea, China, Russia, and Iran, surrounded with U.S. military installations. The U.S. has a major responsibility to help the world step back from the nuclear abyss. It is up to each one of us to let our voices be heard — NO Nukes, NO War, NO Need Siren Tests! The future of unborn generations depend on what we do, or don’t do, now.

Aloha Not War! Happy New Year!

The Only Shelter is Peace!

  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.

Best Christmas Gift We Can Give!

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Mele Kalikimaka!

      Merry Christmas blessings to you and your loved ones in this Holy Season! “Peace on Earth, Good Will to All” is the spirit we need to carry in our hearts throughout the year. But we don’t have to look far to see that much work needs to be done to narrow the gap between word and deed.

      The United States now has military operations of one sort or another underway in Afghanistan, Cameroon, Chad, Iraq, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Somalia, Syria, Uganda, and Yemen. Very likely, this is an incomplete list. Donald Trump’s first year set a record for U.S. Special Ops. Elite U.S. commandos are now deployed in 149 countries in 2017. Overall, the U.S. has 800 military bases worldwide, and many people in the Middle East now regard the United States as the greatest menace to peace they face. In short, U.S. policy is all military –all the time!

Let this sink in: the US Government Has Killed More Than 20 Million People In 37 “Victim Nations” SinceWW2 https://anewkindofhuman.com/3486-2/

    Meanwhile, Philip Alston, the United Nations special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights recently completed a fact-finding tour of the U.S. Alston said that Trump and the U.S. Republican led Congress are attempting to turn the U.S. into the “world champion of extreme inequality.” Among other things, the Republican tax bill rushed through Congress will widen the gap between rich and poor. While the billionare class increases, it’s been reported that 60% of American families would have difficulty meeting a $500 emergency need for funds.
