Stop Bombing Pohakuloa

Stop Military Special Ops on All Islands

Protest! Monday, Dec. 17, 2018

Pohakuloa Main Gate 10 AM- 12 Noon

(carpools leaving Hilo side Komohana and Saddle Rd at 9AM)

     The 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) is the largest US live-fire training area outside the continental U.S. The area has been bombed for more than 75 years with millions of live rounds fired annually by all branches of the US military and other countries too. PTA is contaminated with a wide range of military toxins, including Depleted Uranium (DU), which pose serious health hazards. When DU metal is burned (hit with high explosives) it turns into small Depleted Uranium oxide dust particles that can travel great distances and are easily inhaled. These radiation particles once inside the body can cause various cancers and genetic damage to future generations.

Military Special Ops Training Planned for all Hawaii Islands

Attacks on Wikileaks’ Assange and Free Press

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

The First Amendment & You!

Support Free Speech & A Free Press

First they came for the journalists….  We don’t know what happened after that.

      Free Speech and a Free press go together. If you’re worried about Trump’s assault on the press, recent news of a secret indictment against Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, is a real chilling story. It appears the US Justice Dept. is putting intense pressure to have Julian Assange evicted, arrested, and extradited to the US from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has been sequestered, and increasingly isolated, since 2012. Recent reports say that even Assange’s lawyers have been blocked from visiting him.

      Assange is an Australian citizen who has published via Wikileaks evidence of US war crimes in Iraq through leaks of classified material. Wikileaks also published classified State Department diplomatic cables, CIA hacking into citizen privacy, and emails from the Democratic Party that showed tipping of the party scales unfairly toward Hillary Clinton and against Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary election in 2016.

      What happens to Assange will be a test case in press freedoms. It will effect all journalists and their ability to disclose things governments want kept hidden, whether you’re a Democrat or Republican it doesn’t matter. At issue is not whether you like or dislike Assange and what he exposed. At issue is the media’s right to publish and the citizen’s right to know the truth.

      If Julian Assange is arrested and prosecuted in the US, it will have profound consequences for Press freedoms and free speech around the world. Clearly the US is trying to silence Assange. If the government crosses the line and prosecutes media and journalists for publishing leaked material as part of a criminal conspiracy, it will be the death spiral of a free press and the right of free speech won’t be far behind. The two go together.

Military Special Ops Planned for all Hawaiian Islands

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Come on elected officials:  Stand up, speak up against military intrusion everywhere.  Stop this madness! The potential for panic and the potential for unintended violent clashes from frightened locals or tourists if they see someone (Special Ops enemy role player) with a gun at Mauna Kea Park playground, or elsewhere, should not be taken lightly.  Jim Albertini

Military Special Ops Planned for all Hawaiian Islands

Air, land, and sea, near shore waters and shorelinesEven in County Parks, and the slopes of Sacred Mauna Kea!

      Hawaii is one of, if not, the most densely militarized places on the planet. Now the military wants to expand beyond its more than 100 military installations, and conduct secret Special Operations throughout Hawaii.

      Here is the link to the Navy’s Draft Special Ops Environmental Assessment (EA)

https://www.navfac.navy.mil/navfac_worldwide/pacific/about_us/national-environmental-policy-act–nepa–information/environmental-assessments-availble-for-public-review.html

      The public is encouraged to review and provide comments on the Draft EA through Dec. 10, 2018. Comments can be submitted by email to NFPAC-Receive@navy.mil or by mail to Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific, Attention: Project Manager, EV21.JZ, 258 Makalapa Drive, Ste 100, Pearl Harbor, Hi 96860-3134

      Jim Albertini of Malu’Aina said this Special Ops Draft EA is directly related to another Navy 106 document about Navy Special Ops proposed training in and around Mauna Kea Recreation area on Saddle Road. It’s outrageous.  It appears the Navy now wants to expand operations and conduct armed covert Special Ops in our Mauna Kea county park and on the slopes of Mauna Kea above the park.  I say no way.  The military needs to clean up its toxic messes including unexploded ordnance, Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation contamination, etc. all over Hawaii not expand its training into our parks, shorelines, and on the slopes of Sacred Mauna Kea. A map from the EA shows shoreline areas for Big island Special Ops besides the land training proposed in and around Mauna Kea Park.

De-Militarize All Hawaii Now!

    4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
