U.S. Militarism – What is it good for?

U.S. Militarism

War, War & More War… What is it good for?

We must see now that the evils of racism, economic exploitation, and militarism are all tied together.

And you can’t get rid of one without getting rid of the other.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. 

“Endless war, caused by militarism. does not make us safer, more secure, or more free. In fact each new war strengthens our culture of violence, weakens civil liberties, promotes militarization of our police, and increases the power of the executive branch. Many observers think this is moving us toward authoritarianism and the decline of democracy.”

Phil Anderson

The right thing to do is to stop the march to war in Iran, Venezuela, etc. Demilitarize the U.S., Hawaii & the World!  Wage Peace Not War! Work for Justice & Save the Earth!

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.

      Julian Assange of Wikileaks has been charged with violation of U.S. Espionage laws for exposing U.S. war crimes. He faces possibly 175 years in prison or the death sentence. Those who committed the crimes go free while Assange is in prison. Charges against Assange represents a major escalation in the U.S. government’s criminalization of journalism. For the the first time, a publisher has been charged under the Espionage Act for revealing classified information. Every news organization, every blog, including Malu ‘Aina,  is now at risk.

      Chelsea Manning who leaked classified information of U.S. war crimes to Wikileaks spent 7 years in prison before having her sentenced commuted by President Obama. Chelsea is back in jail again for now refusing to testify before a federal grand jury against Julian Assange and Wikileaks. In addition to being held in confinement for the duration of the grand jury investigation or until she purges her contempt and testifies, the judge ordered that she be fined $500 every day she is in custody after 30 days and $1,000 every day she is in custody after 60 days. http://www.nukeresister.org/inside-out/

      On May 16, 2019 a reporter for the West Hawaii Today newspaper was banned from a public meeting in Hilo, Hawaii about the 133,000-acre military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) located in the center of Hawaii Island. The meeting concerned cultural and religious sites, the effects of ongoing bombing, and the contamination of Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation blowing in the wind at PTA.

      Every citizen has a right to know the truth about what is taking place in their names. When reporting the truth is blocked or even criminalized, freedom and democracy are in peril.

    

Free Assange & Manning!  Who will be next?

An injury to one is an injury to all!

Stand Up for Free Speech & a Free Press!

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