Palm Sunday Protest of PTA “Breakfast of Champions” and Bombing

Sunday, April 14th, 2019

Aloha kakou,

Palm Sunday,. April 14, 2019 protest of “Champions of PTA” Breakfast and Bombing Day at Pohakuloa (PTA) 6:30-8AM.   PTA was hosting a breakfast for its “Champions of PTA” at 7AM and then were going to take the “Champions” on a meet and greet to the troops 8-10AM firing heavy duty cannons etc. A couple of us stood in protest outside the main PTA gate. Judging from the very light traffic entering the base, not many “Champions of PTA” attended.  On the third photo below you can see bomb debris clouds in the distant slopes of Mauna Loa. Our message was simple: Protect “Aina, Protect Youth, Protect Pohakuloa. Stop Bombing. Real Champions don’t Bomb! The live fire was heavy at times — cannons,rockets and helicopter gunships. Desecration of the sacred ‘Aina. Just like the First Palm Sunday — Desecration of the Sacred Temple in Jerusalem by Money changers.whose tables Jesus upset.

Join the Protest at the PTA Main Gate on Thursday, April 18th 9AM till 1PM during the “Experience PTA” open House where school children, etc. are invited on to the PTA base contaminated with Depleted Uranium oxide particles, etc. Please pass the word about the protest.  Mahalo.

We have received word from the Dept. of Education Kona head,Art Souza, that due to our raising health concerns, no schools from the Kona side of the island will be attending “Experience PTA Day”.  We have not heard about the Hilo side of the island if any, or how many, schools will be attending.

STOP BOMBING POHAKULOA!

Y’all wanna celebrate Earth Day? Start by not dropping bombs. Rather than let your keiki go to the Pohakuloa military base exposing them to health threats go visit an organic farm, fishpond, prepare a meal for the houseless, go pick flowers and make lei with kūpuna and talk story. Let’s actually care for the earth. That’s free too!

Call to Action!!! Three ways to Protect Pōhakuloa!

1.) Please share on social media and ADD a photo of yourself and your loved ones with the message –Stop Bombing Pohakuloa, Don’t bring youth to Pohakuloa out of health concerns, etc.
Urge young people and off island Lahui to make their own signs and post with their photos on social media!! When you post add the hashtags #protectpohakuloa #PTAShutdown #protectourkeiki #seeyouonthemauna

2.) Thurs, April 18, 2019 Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA). Main Gate 9AM-1PM
Protest “Experience PTA Day” events where the military has invited school children, parents, and people from the community on base, despite KNOWN HEALTH RISKS. We encourage young folks, those who are hapai, or in ill health to post photos, make calls and raise awareness and not risk their health at the 4/18 PTA Gate Protest. (Car pools 8AM from Hilo @Komohana & Saddle)

  1. Contact the DOE and tell them to stop encouraging students to go to Pōhakuloa! (Hilo side DOE) Chad Farias. Phone: 808-982- 4719. Email: Chad_Farias@hawaiidoe.org (Kona side DOE) Art Souza: Phone: 808-327-4991 Email: art_souza@hawaiidoe.org

More than 14 million live-rounds are fired annually at PTA and Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation rounds have been used there.

The Godfathers of War with Russia?

WAR WITH RUSSIA?

Extremely Dangerous Times!

 

               

 

 

                      

 

The Godfathers of Russiagate!

Former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper are key figures, along with mainstream media parrots, in fueling the new demonization of Russia on behalf of the U.S. Military Industrial Complex.

The demonizing of Russia is now as bad or worse than during the 1950s McCarthy era and the height of the Cold War. To avoid catastrophic nuclear confrontation with Russia we need dialog and diplomacy, not escalating confrontation. Remember what Ronald Reagan said: “No one can win a nuclear war.”  It will only result in the end of civilization as we know it, and possibly the extinction of life on earth. We need to defuse US/Russia tensions over Venezuela, Iran, etc. and restrain the out of control U.S. intelligence agencies and corporate war merchants of death. We need the 21st century equivalent of the 1970s Church Commission to require people like Brennan and Clapper to testify under oath with severe penalties for perjury. But most of all we need a people’s movement inspired by the nonviolent vision of Dr. Martin Luther King.

U.S. has Spent $32 Million Per Hour on War Since 2001

Tuesday, March 26th, 2019

U.S. has Spent $32 Million Per Hour on War Since 2001

That totals $5.6 trillion since 2001, when the U.S. invaded Afghanistan. Every American taxpayer has spent almost $24,000 on the wars.

What has this money bought? Millions killed, injured, and made refugees. Infrastructure destroyed and chaos and hatred created toward the U.S. throughout the middles east.  And remember the Pentagon can’t account for $21 Trillion Missing Dollars in its spending.  Why no audit, people being held accountable?  Doesn’t anybody care?

Protest ongoing wars and Hawaii as war training ground.

Thursday, April 18, 2019 Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA)

Main Gate 9AM-1PM

(Car pools leave 8AM from Hilo side Komohana and Saddle Rd)

     On Thursday, April 18, 2019 the 133,000-acre military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) is hosting an “Experience Pohakuloa Day” event at the base from 9AM till 1PM. School children, parents and people from the community are being invited on base. It should be noted that Pohakuloa is a hazardous toxic waste dump from more than 75 years of live-fire training of weapons by the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. More than 14 million live-rounds are fired annually at Pohakuloa. Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation rounds have been used at PTA.

Please view the short video of Dr. Lorrin Pang, M.D., public health officer and retired Army Medical Corps explaining the health dangers of inhaling DU oxide dust particles (See https://vimeo.com/19153948). Allowing children in your care to attend programs at Pohakuloa unnecessarily puts them at risk.

Stop Trump’s Axis of Evil. No War on Venezuela, Iran, etc.

Stop Trump’s Axis of Evil

                                                            

                                        

        

  John Bolton                                        Mike Pompeo                                         Elliott Abrams

Veterans Call on U.S. Troops to Resist Illegal Orders to Invade Venezuela

It is illegal under both U.S. and international law to launch a military attack against another nation unless it is clearly in self-defense, and is approved by the United Nations.

Veterans For Peace (VFP) calls on all members of the U.S. military to refuse illegal orders to intervene in Venezuela. Furthermore, VFP urges all U.S. military leaders to inform the president that they will order their units to stand down from preparations to invade Venezuela.  

Veterans For Peace President, Gerry Condon states, “While President Trump speaks of supporting democracy in Venezuela and Latin America, the real purpose of the U.S. assault on the Venezuelan government is to fully open the vast Venezuelan oil reserves to U.S. and other Western oil corporations as well as to destroy progressive governments in Latin America that put their own peoples’ needs above the profits of foreign corporations.”

Mauna Kea is Sacred! Where do you stand?

Tuesday, March 12th, 2019

 

Mauna Kea is Sacred!  Where do YOU Stand?

     Historically mountains have been recognized as sacred. Mount Sinai, Mount Fujii, Mount Everest and many others. Historically the role of religion has been losing out to the interests of money-making (development). Those who claim to be “religious” SHOULD all be standing beside the Kanaka Maoli and supporting their claim that Mauna Kea is sacred and should not have a TMT built on it! Shame on the silence of the religious, especially those who have participated in “inter-religious” and “inter-faith” organizations. Religion is not something found in museums. Religion is based on one’s faith. If one expects one’s religion to be respected, then respect the religion of others. Kanaka Maoli, like all human beings have the right to have their religion recognized and respected.

     Sacred is Sacred!  No TMT or development of any kind on the sacred summit area of Mauna Kea

            Do What is Right & Just!   No More Desecration! 

Time for Kapu Aloha for Everyone! Protectors, Police, Mayor, Prosecutor, County Council, State Legislators, Governor, Attorney General, UH President and Board of Regents, BLNR, DOCARE, Congressional Delegation, Military, Business people, EVERYONE!

      To Police – County, State,  Federal, and private security guards: Refuse if ordered to arrest Mauna Kea Protectors against further desecration of Mauna Kea by TMT construction.  Non-cooperation with evil is as much a moral duty as cooperation with good.

 
Respect Hawaiian Spiritual Practice!
