LOOTERS!

looters

A group of global banks (CitiCorp, JP Morgan Chase & Co., Barclays PLC and the Royal Bank of Scotland PLC ) will pay more than $5 billion U.S. in penalties and plead guilty to felony anti-trust violations – rigging the world’s currency market, the first time in more than two decades that major players in the financial industry have admitted to criminal wrongdoing. To date no Bank CEOs have been charged criminally.

The Pentagon Conned Washington … Again

The National Defense Authorization Act managed to circumvent the spending caps imposed by the bipartisan Budget Control Act of 2011.

The proposed military budget spending of the United States in 2016 is $613 billion, nearly 35 percent of global military spending and greater than the combined spending of China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, France, the UK, India and Germany. Real annual military spending by the United States is even higher, once nuclear weapons funding, interest payments on foreign wars, and the cost of veteran care is included. With these items, the annual amount is closer to $1 trillion.

STOP THE WARS & POLICE VIOLENCE!

Rev. Martin Luther King said that “a riot is the language of the unheard.”

U.S. Police killed 115 people in March 2015. That’s more people killed by U.S. police than in England and Wales for the entire year 2014. There the yearly figure for police killings stood at 26.

PEACE NOT WAR!

pope on arms

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children…

Now, there could be another road before us—the road of disarmament. What does this mean? It means for everybody in the world: bread, butter, clothes, homes, hospitals, schools—all the good and necessary things for decent living. …”

former U.S. President and General Dwight David Eisenhower

Instead, there is a call to update the U.S. triad of nuclear-armed bomber aircraft, submarines and ground-based missiles costing $1 trillion over the next 30 years.

JUSTICE?

Petraeus & Manning

The former director of the CIA leaked names of covert operatives and private conversations with the president to the woman writing a book about him. Manning shared a video of the U.S. military gunning down journalists and civilians, and had the book thrown at her.

Reject a two-tiered justice system.

Earth Day – Everyday!

One planet, One home, One chance to get it right!

Generations to come are counting on us!!!!

Malama Mauna Kea, Pohakuloa & the Planet

Earth Day is a reminder that we all live on one planet and it is our individual and collective responsibility to malama (take care of) mama ‘aina (the earth) that provides us life. Here at home we need to protect Hawaii’s most sacred temple –Mauna Kea, from further desecration. This means stopping the $1.4 billion 18-story Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) from being built on Mauna Kea. Already thirteen telescopes dominate the sacred summit area in the name of science.

In the saddle area between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa is the 133,000-acre military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA). Pohakuloa is nearly five times the size of the island of Kaho’olawe. Pohakuloa is translated to mean “The Land of the Night of Long Prayer.” This sacred area has been bombed by the military since WWII and is known to be contaminated with a wide range of military toxins, including Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation. Military documents claim that up to 14.8 million live-rounds are fired annually at Pohakuloa by all branches of the U.S. military and other countries. Weapon systems of all sorts are used at PTA, including small arms, artillery, helicopter gun ships, bombing by fighter jets, B-52, B-1 and B-2 bombers, etc. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), drone aircraft, are used in training at PTA. On July 2, 2008, the Hawaii County Council, by a vote of 8-1, passed Resolution 639-08 calling for a halt to all live-fire at PTA and clean up of the DU present at Pohakuloa. The Army has ignored the Council’s call. Both Pohakuloa and Mauna Kea are Hawaiian Kingdom crown and government lands.

War and the training for war is one of the greatest pollution sources on the planet. The U.S. military is the single largest consumer of oil and the greatest emitter of CO2. Here on Hawaii island there are a minimum of 57 present and former military sites, totaling more than 400 square miles (250,000-acres) that may contain unexploded ordnance and military toxins. Western wars have killed more than 4 million Muslims since 1990, displaced millions more and turned much of the cradle of civilization into rubble and chaos.

US Department of Defense is the Worst Polluter on the Planet

      With the growing reality of man made climate disasters and escalating conflict to the brink of nuclear war, we better come to terms with the urgent need to stop desecrating the sacred and instead — Malama ‘Aina.

Live Aloha!   No TMT!   Stop the Wars!   Stop Bombing Pohakuloa!
