The resulting film exposes the efforts of Israel and its lobbyists to spy on, smear and intimidate US citizens who support Palestinian human rights, especially BDS – the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.

US ongoing coup attempt against Venezuela Feb. 8, 2019 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

NO END IN SIGHT?

The US ongoing Coup attempt in Venezuela is all about Oil!

Don’t believe the claim for “Freedom & Democracy” or the need for US military intervention for “Humanitarian” reasons. That’s all a smoke screen for a grab for oil. The same people demonizing Russia and charging Russia with interfering in US elections are now involved in trying to overthrow the democratically elected government of Venezuela.

      The US lied about the reasons for the US Marines assisted coup in Hawaii in 1893 and the so called annexation that followed. It was all about corporate sugar interests and securing US military bases.

     They lied to us about Vietnam. They lied to us about Iraq. They lied to us about Libya, Syria, Honduras, etc. So why would we believe what they’re saying about Venezuela now? Who’s next? Cuba, Iran, Russia, China …. There is no end in sight toward US Empire Global domination.

      Look who is talking – John Bolton, Trump’s National Security advisor who wrote the play book for George W. Bush and the US invasion of Iraq based on phony claims that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). John Bolton is a war criminal. So too is recently appointed Deputy Secretary of State, Elliott Abrams, who is also calling the shots on Venezuela. Abrams is a convicted Iran/Contra war criminal pardoned by Bush Sr. Abrams armed right wing death squads in Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala for US interests. The US Neocons are now in control. The script is in their right wing think tank –Project for a New American Century PNAC). Their vision called for “A New Pearl Harbor” (9-11) and the ongoing war on terror to mask global domination by the US Empire in the 21st century. Read this article below that names names of other people involved.

Quit TMT Respect Sacred Mauna Kea Feb. 1, 2019 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

QUIT  TMT

Respect Sacred Mauna Kea

Time for Kapu Aloha (non-violence) 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!

      This is an appeal to all people, especially to county, state, federal and international officials and business interests in China, Japan, India, Canada and the US supporting the multi-billion dollar 18 story Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Hawaii’s most sacred temple – Mauna Kea. Remember, we are living in an illegally occupied nation – The Hawaiian Kingdom. The legitimate government of Queen Lili’uokalani was illegally overthrown in 1893 by greedy business interests with the assistance of the US Marines. The Hawaiian Kingdom remains illegally occupied today. The State of Hawaii land leases involving Mauna Kea are illegal.

Do What is Right & Just!   No More Desecration!

      To Police – County, State,  Federal, and private security guards: Call in sick or outright refuse if ordered to Mauna Kea to arrest Protectors of Sacred Mauna Kea against further desecration by TMT construction. Hawaii and the world are in the midst of a major clash of values that will determine the future of life on earth. To a great extent it boils down to big business interests for profit vs native values caring for the earth – Malama Honua.

Respect Hawaiian Spiritual Practice!   

  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.

US Empire – Global Mafia Don – Jan 25, 2019 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

US Empire – Global Mafia Don!

The Problem is More than Donald J. Trump

      The late author William Blum said: “American people are very much like the children of a Mafia boss who do not know what their father does for a living, and don’t want to know, but then wonder why someone just threw a firebomb through the living room window.”

      The definition of Global Imperialism is quite simple and much like the expanded role of a local mafia crime boss: if you don’t do what the US tells you to do, the US will destroy you. The US will use economic sanctions, embargoes, threats of destruction and annihilation, violent covert military Special Ops, and as a last resort, invasion and war – all of course in the phony name of “defending freedom and democracy,” to control and dominate the world. The US is even prepared to initiate a global nuclear war, risking total annihilation to maintain profits and world dominance.

Today, the US empire (Global Mafia Don) has 95% of the world’s foreign military bases, with personnel in more than 160 countries, many personnel conducting “Special Ops” –covert unconventional warfare with drones and assassination teams to maintain US economic global domination. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50951.htm

From Violence to Nonviolence

      This past week the US celebrated the national holiday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – the apostle of nonviolence, who dedicated his life to working for justice and peace. What the mainstream media fails to address is King’s calling out the triplets of evil: Racism, Militarism and Capitalism. One year to the day of his assassination on April 4, 1968 King came out strongly against the US war in Vietnam. He said “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

      Today, the 26 richest people in the world have as much combined wealth as the poorest half of Earth’s population, while the gap continues to increase, according to a new report of Oxfam International. This is nothing short of an obscene concentration of wealth. Dr. King said: “The trouble is that we live in a failed system. Capitalism does not permit an even flow of economic resources. With this system, a small privileged few are rich beyond conscience and almost all others are doomed to be poor at some level. That’s the way the system works. And since we know that the system will not change the rules we are going to have to change the system.”

      Martin Luther King made a challenge to us: “Our only hope lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism.” But he said we must do so in a spirit of, and a commitment to, nonviolence. Dr. King said: “We still have a choice today, nonviolent coexistence or violent co-annihilation.” Violence and hate only lead to more violence and hate. Love is the answer. It is where hope begins.

Live the Dream! Work for Justice & 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.

126 Years of Illegal US Occupation

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

126 Years of Illegal U.S. Occupation 

Hawaii’s Queen Lili’uokalani

     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.

     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.  $92,000 is now considered low income on Oahu. 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 by scientific development including the 13th telescope – TMT. 133,000-acres at Pohakuloa continue to be desecrated, bombed and contaminated with military toxins, and 90% of food consumed in Hawai’i is now imported to what was once a 100% food self sufficient society.  Aloha ‘Aina –Mauka to Makai!  Malama Honua!  Save the planet!

     Today, a new military coup of sorts is being carried out in Hawaii. It’s called “Special Ops.” Covert military water, land, and air-based trainings OUTSIDE of military bases are being planned. They will be carried out in coastal nearshore waters, shorelines, and inland locations on all islands involving Navy, Army, Marines and Air Force. This is a gross expansion, normalization, and glorification of militarism and war in our communities. It will only add to the catastrophic consequences – environmental, cultural, etc. of 126 years of illegal US military occupation of Hawaii. In short, it is military training to do to other nations what the US has already done to the Hawaiian Kingdom –overthrow its government and illegally occupy it’s territory. Justice demands the U.S. end it’s illegal occupation and restore Hawai’i as it was –an independent nation of military neutrality.

Stop this Military Madness! Free Hawaii 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.
    5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
