July 13, 2018 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet — 877th week – Fridays 3:30-5PM downtown Post Office

Revised 6-8PM Stop RIMPAC Bombing Community Forum Monday, July 9 at the Keaau Community Center Please pass the word

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

Stop RIMPAC Bombing Hawaii!

RIMPAC Community Forum

      On Monday, July 9, 2018 there will be a free Public Forum on RIMPAC 2018 from 6-8 PM at the Keaau Community Center. Among the speakers will be Kealoha Pisciotta, Mauna Kea Anaina Hou president and former cultural monitor on Pohakuloa Training Area; Dr. Lorrin Pang, MD and retired 25 years with the Army Medical Corps, and Isaac “Paka” Harp, Vice-President of the Hawaiian Patriotic League. Please pass the word on this important event. Mahalo.

      From June 27 until Aug. 2, 2018 some 26 nations (including Israel for the first time) will participate in RIMPAC war games on land, sea and air in and around Hawaii.  Participating will be 47 surface ships, five submarines, 18 national land forces, and more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel.  The war exercises include bombing and shelling the 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) located in the center of Hawaii Island.

      Pohakuloa is used as a live-fire target by the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines and is contaminated with a wide range of military toxins, including Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation. Despite this contamination the base continues to be bombed, (more than 15 million live-rounds annually) spreading the DU oxide dust particles around the island. Doctor Lorrin Pang, MD, retired Army Medical Corps, says that inhaled DU oxide dust particles can cause cancer and genetic damage.

      Hawaii Island is undergoing tremendous trauma from Kilauea Volcano lava flows and earthquakes. Thousands of people have been displaced from their homes, farms, and businesses.  We do not need to add to the trauma by RIMPAC  bombing of our island home.  We ask that the bombing be stopped immediately.

      If the military wants to truly protect the people of Hawaii island, forgo RIMPAC 2018 and use the money for housing and other lava relief efforts.

Protect People, Plants, and Animals, Air, Land, and Sea…

  1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.

American Wars and Self-Decline

American Wars and Self-Decline

The United States already spends more on the military than the next 10 countries combined.

See 4 minute video by Robert Reich on the Military-Industrial Drain. You can go to www.malu-aina.org and click on the link to the video or go to

https://www.facebook.com/RBReich/videos/1990014571011129/UzpfSTEwMDAwMDcwMzMyNjI0ODoxOTIxNTA5NDI0NTQ5MTUw/

Does the US government actually oppose dictatorships and champion democracy around the world?

In Case You Missed It the US Provides Military Assistance to 73 Percent of World’s Dictatorships http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/49647.htm

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists Doomsday Clock stands at two minutes before midnight. Midnight is the hour of global nuclear destruction. We all have a voice. Future generations are waiting for us to speak out now for global nuclear disarmament. It’s not just about North Korea. The USA, the world’s largest nuclear armed nation, needs to lead the way by example.

Protest RIMPAC Bombing of Hawaii!

Stop RIMPAC Bombing of Hawaii!

     From June 27 until Aug.2, 2018 Some 26 nations (including Israel for the first time), 47 surface ships, five submarines, 18 national land forces, and more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are expected to participate in the biennial RIMPAC war games. RIMPAC includes the bombing and shelling of the 133,000-acre military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) in the middle of Hawaii island. 

     Hawaii Island is undergoing tremendous trauma from Kilauea Volcano lava flows. Thousands of people have been displaced from their homes, farms, and businesses.  We do not need to add to the trauma by RIMPAC  bombing of our island home.  We ask that the bombing be stopped immediately. 

     Mayor Harry Kim has said due to the Kilauea eruption “needs are greater than we’ve ever seen.” If the military wants to truly protect the people of Hawaii island, forgo RIMPAC 2018 and use the money for housing and other lava relief efforts.

If you would like to add your name to this statement for public release to the news media and government officials, please email Donna Grabow <meridianwoman@yahoo.com>  by  June 18, 2018 

U.S. President Donald Trump just cancelled U.S. South Korea joint military exercises and labeled them “provocative and expensive.” The same can be said about RIMPAC!

PROTEST RIMPAC

A peaceful protest of RIMPAC 2018 is scheduled for Saturday, June 30, 2018 at the Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) main gate from 10AM-12 noon. A RIMPAC protest is also schedule on Oahu at Pearl Harbor at the same time and date.

Please pass the word to others.
