“Experience Pohakuloa Day” Protest Thursday, April 18

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019

Stop the Bombing!  Protect Pohakuloa

& the health and safety of our children

There will be a peaceful protest to Stop Bombing Pohakuloa outside the base main gate on Saddle Rd from 9-1PM on Thursday, April 18, 2019.  Please help pass the word.

On Thursday, April 18, 2019 the 133,000-acre military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) is  hosting an “Experience Pohakuloa Day” event at the base from 9AM till 1PM.  School children, parents and people from the community are being invited on base.  It should be noted that Pohakuloa is a hazardous toxic waste dump from more than 75 years of live-fire training by a vast range of weapons by the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.  More than 14 million live-rounds are fired annually at Pohakuloa.  Everything from small arms to large bombs, including Depleted Uranium radiation weapons have been used at PTA.  Below is a short public service announcement with a link to a video by Dr. Lorrin Pang, MD, retired Army medical Corps about the dangers of inhaling small particles of DU oxide that can be carried long distances by the winds.  Please share this PSA widely, especially with parents who have school children that may be considering a visit to Pohakuloa.  Also below is a flyer about the Pohakuloa Protest. 

Hope to see you in protest at Pohakuloa on Thursday, April 18th.

Mahalo and solidarity for helping to pass the word.

    PTA is inviting schools to a Thursday , April 18, 2019 “Experience  PTA Day” event from 9-1PM.

For School Officials, Teachers, and parents – Please print and post in the teacher meeting room. Please forward this message to your Parent-Teacher Association PTA, so that this important information is circulated prior to organizing ANY STUDENT EXCURSIONS TO POHAKULOA TRAINING AREA

P U B L I C   S E R V I C E   A N N O U N C E M E N T

Parents of young children and pregnant women are warned of the dangers of DU (Depleted Uranium) and other military toxins at the Pohakuloa Training Area!

Please view the short video of Dr. Lorrin Pang, M.D., public health officer and retired Army Medical Corps explaining the health dangers of inhaling DU oxide dust particles (See https://vimeo.com/19153948). As Dr. Pang explains, especially vulnerable are young children and pregnant women.

Allowing children in your care to attend programs at Pohakuloa, especially during live fire training, unnecessarily puts them at risk. Mahalo.

The Real not Fake Global Emergency!

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

The Real Global Emergency:

Preventing Climate Disaster & Nuclear War!

Beware of Trump’s Fake Border Wall National Emergency!

      The symbolic Doomsday Clock of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists is now set at two minutes till midnight – the Doomsday Hour! The climate change denier in Chief in the White House has said – we have all these nuclear weapons, why can’t we use them? In his short time in office, Trump has withdrawn from the Iran nuclear deal, and the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces, or INF, Treaty (a pact that had actually resulted in thousands of ready-to-use nuclear weapons being scrapped) . Now Trump and his Doomsday advisers, John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, have rolled out a new “low yield” nuclear weapon –the W76-2.  Some have called this the Most Dangerous Weapon Ever because it’s considered most useable by a logic which defies gravity.  Trump’s quest is for nuclear-war-fighting “flexibility.” The W76-2 is a weapon  to make the unthinkable, thinkable, to make nuclear war “winnable” by destroying the earth!  God help us!  See more about the horror — http://www.tomdispatch.com/post/176526/tomgram:_james_carroll,_how_many_minutes_to_midnight/#more https://consortiumnews.com/2019/02/05/dismantling-the-doomsday-machines/

      Meanwhile, the signs of climate disaster are everywhere. More extremes in weather patterns, intense storms, droughts, fires. The tipping point is fast approaching but to those blinded by greed, it’s full speed ahead toward the abyss. Don’t go blindly into the abyss!  Resist!

Save the Planet!   Abolish Nukes!

  1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
  2. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.

Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim’s vision of Mauna Kea

Friday, February 15th, 2019

Aloha Kakou,

I watched the whole 37 min of this video by Big Island Video News. The last 13 min — the section 24 -37min is really about TMT.

While Kim recognizes the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom as an independent nation, he cities the apology bill of Clinton, and now it’s go forward with TMT and education.

In my view Harry’s “Vision” for Mauna Kea is nothing more than sugar coated desecration of Hawaii’s most sacred temple.  If Harry wants peace, his vision for Mauna Kea needs to be built on a foundation of justice.  That means for a start — NO TMT.  Stop Bombing Pohakuloa and have the military clean up their toxic mess.  Then we can begin to talk peace.

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.
