Stop Bombing Hawaii

For People, Plants and Animals – For the love of the ‘aina, and the moana

Showing of the 14 min. film: “Pohakuloa:  Now that you know…”

Hilo Thursday, June 30th from 5-8PM at UH Hilo, STB 100 off Lanikaula St. on UHH campus

Kona – Thursday, July 7th 6:30-8:30PM at the County Council Chambers West Hawaii Civic Center

Twenty-six nations, 45 ships, five submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel will participate in the biennial Rim of the Pacific military war on the earth –air, land and sea (RIMPAC 2016) scheduled, June 30 – Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and southern California.

The Range Control office at the military 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) located in the center of Hawaii Island PTA has confirmed that Pohakuloa will be a target of live -fire for ground forces and aircraft participating in RIMPAC 2016.

Pohakuloa has been used as a bombing and live-fire site for more than 50 years. It is contaminated with a wide range of military toxins, including Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation. Continued bombing risks spreading the contamination downwind, endangering the lives of troops training there and residents and visitors alike . DU is particularly dangerous when small particles are inhaled and can cause cancer, birth defects and genetic damage. (Google 14 min. video: “Pohakuloa– Now that you know…”)

Po-haku-loa is translated to mean: “The Land of the night of Long Prayer. Pohakuloa is known as the sacred heavenly realm of unity between the three great mountains –Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Hualalai. To bomb Pohakuloa is considered desecration and sacrilegious to Hawaii’s native people – the Kanaka Maoli, and a continuation of the illegal U.S. military occupation of the nation of Hawaii.

Malama Honua! Care for the Earth!

Aloha Not War!

Aloha Not War!

 This is a call for nonviolent (Kapu Aloha) action on all islands to Malama Honua and Protest RIMPAC.

Malu ‘Aina will be having planning meetings on Hawaii Island at the Keaau Community Center from 6:30-8:30 PM on Mondays, June 20th, and 27th. We encourage people in other parts of the island, and on other islands, to organize in the spirit of Kapu Aloha to protest RIMPAC. Mahalo and solidarity.

  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.

Get copies of files the Government may have on you

This is easy print out form letters.  Takes very little time.  Might be interesting to see what pops up in terms of government monitoring of peace, justice, independence activity.
I sent letters in April 2016.  The FBI responded recently saying they have 1304 pages on me.  It will cost me $40 to get 3 CDS with the pages in them or $60 for paper pages. I’ll keep you posted of anything interesting when i get my 3 FBI CDs.

Stop Bombing Hawaii!

The Range Control office at the military’s 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area, located in the center of Hawaii Island has confirmed that Pohakuloa will be a target of live -fire for ground forces and aircraft participating in RIMPAC 2016 during the month of July. What other military actions will be taking place in and around Hawaii as part of RIMPAC 2016 have not been disclosed.

Pohakuloa has been used as a bombing and live-fire site for more than 50 years. It is contaminated with a wide range of military toxins, including Depleted Uranium (DU). Continued bombing risks spreading the contamination, possibly endangering the lives of troops training there and residents and visitors alike downwind. DU is particularly dangerous when small particles are inhaled.
