Please speak out and tell elected officials to Cancel RIMPAC 2020 Military War Games

Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

Aloha elected officials at County, State and the Federal level,

Please speak out to cancel RIMPAC 2020.   There is an article in The Honolulu Advertiser today, April 1, 2020) that RIMPAC 2020 is still going forward.  Below is a statement our organization has issued calling for a stop to RIMPAC 2020.  Add your voice.  Mahalo.

Jim Albertini of Malu Aina

The Statement below will be sent to all nations participating in RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific military exercises) 2020

Stop RIMPAC 2020 Bombing of Hawaii!

From late June until early Aug, every two years since the early 1970s other countries have come to Hawaii to join the U.S. military in conducting war games — bombing air, land and sea.  In 2018 more than 2 dozen countries — including some 47 surface ships, five submarines, 18 national land forces, and more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel participated in RIMPAC.  The war games include the bombing and shelling of the 133,000-acre military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA), located in the center of Hawaii island. We say — Enough already!  We say No to RIMPAC 2020.  We say Stop the Bombing of Pohakuloa and conducting war games in the air, on land, and the sea around Hawaii.  This is not Aloha and Malama Honua (taking care of the earth). Wage Peace Not War!  End the illegal U.S. military occupation of Hawaii that has been ongoing since 1893 when the U.S. Military assisted foreign business interests in the illegal overthrow of the lawful government of the independent nation of Hawaii.  Given the Covid 19 virus, military personnel arriving in Hawaii for RIMPAC 2020 will endanger residents of Hawaii — on some of the most isolated islands in the world.

Covid 19 – Possible Bio Weapon?

liberty

Here in under 9 minutes you will see evidence that Covid 19 DID possibly come from US/Chinese bio-weapons labs. The evidence comes from Dr. Francis Boyle, international lawyer and bio weapons expert. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DAI3c9wE0Q 

Regardless of the Covid 19 origins, the Pandemic is causing a global public health and economic crisis that needs to be taken very seriously. It should also cause all of humanity to address more seriously the global climate crisis/catastrophe that we have ignored for far too long.

Protecting public health to prevent COVID-19 from spreading by stay-at-home orders, state and community lockdowns, and social distancing reflect common sense policymaking. Overstepping occurs if martial law is declared and constitutional rights are suspended.” Stephen Lendman Do not let Martial Law come to the U.S. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/54058.htm

Let us also Remember!

U.S. Military Chemical/biological agents were tested in the late 1960s on Oahu, on Hawaii Island, and in waters around Hawaii. On Hawaii Island the US Army leased State land for what was said to be “weather testing.” The military lied about what they were doing. The leased lands were in the Waiakea forest reserve, Hilo’s watershed. Among the many chemical/biological agents tested south of Hilo off Stainback highway was Sarin nerve gas — 1/50 of a drop can kill you. Hunters report there are areas in the Waiakea forest where nothing still grows today – more than 50 years after the testing. Brief fact sheets were finally released 40 years later in the early 2000s on some of the chemical/biological agents tested in the 1960s in Hawaii. For more details see the links below.  What will future generations learn 40 years from now about today?

Weapons & War are NOT the Answer!

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.

A Question of Priorities

CDC: $11 billion vs. Pentagon: $738 billion    

 
war

     The Coronavirus pandemic is sweeping across the U.S. and the world and people are dying in increasing numbers. It’s becoming clear how unprepared and underfunded the U.S. public health system is to handle this crisis. Hospitals and health care workers are scrambling for equipment desperately needed. Meanwhile, the U.S. continues to bomb Iraq, Afghanistan, and numerous other countries in endless wars costing trillions of dollars, millions of lives, destruction and chaos.

      Many events originally scheduled for Hawaii have now been postponed or canceled due to the Coronavirus. But one event is still full speed ahead – RIMPAC 2020 –the 27th Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) military war exercises. From late June through early August “Hawaii’s skies will be filled with rockets, mortars, missiles, and drones. warships, fighter jets, destroyers, and submarines will maneuver, and more than 25,000 military personnel will gather in Hawaii … for the world’s largest international maritime exercises, if all goes as planned.” Over 2 dozen countries are scheduled to participate many experiencing COVID-19 cases. For more details on RIMPAC 2020 see https://thediplomat.com/2020/03/as-the-coronavirus-spreads-rimpac-planners-face-grim-facts/

      Join the movement to cancel RIMPAC 2020. The money spent on war exercises should go to the healing needed from the Coronavirus pandemic. Email ja@malu-aina.org if you would like your name added to the statement below to be sent to all nations participating in RIMPAC 2020.
