Eaducating. I can send this to you as a file as well. For those of you looking for resources for January 17. I share:

Here are a few resources that I located regarding the events culminating in January 17, 1893. I have not read or watched them all, nor am recommending any in particular (except the Queens own words). Providing as support for those who might want to learn more. I also know some teachers and parents wanted the DOE standards to go along with attending. PS Facebook doesnʻt let me underline etc.

Eaducation is key.

125 Years of U.S. Occupation: U.S. OUT — Free Hawai’i Now!

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Please pass the word on this solidarity action for a Free Hawaii — “Hawaii Loa Ku like  kakou” — All Hawaii Stand Together.  Mahalo.

 

125 Years of U.S. Occupation 

      On January 17, 1893 a coup d’état was carried out against Queen Lili’uokalani and the Hawaiian Kingdom by foreign resident business interests with the assistance of U.S. Marines from the USS Boston. An illegal U.S. occupation of Hawai’i has continued ever since. Contrary to popular belief there never was a Treaty of Annexation. Commemoration ceremonies are scheduled on Jan. 17, 2018 in Honolulu at Iolani Palace. For more information see http://www.onipaakakou.org/

      Today, occupied Hawai’i is home to more than 100 U.S. military installations, a runaway tourist industry and settler population that has turned Hawai’i into a playground for rich land speculators. Nearly 1 in every 2 households can’t cover basic needs.  Native Hawaiians (Kanaka Maoli), who make up 20% of the population, now make up the majority of homeless and 60% of the prison population in their own homeland. The sacred Kanaka Maoli temple — Mauna Kea, is being desecrated and vandalized by scientific development, and 90% of food consumed in Hawai’i is now imported to what was once a 100% food self sufficient society.

U.S. Out!  Free Hawai’i Now!

. 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.

Best Christmas Gift We Can Give!

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Mele Kalikimaka!

      Merry Christmas blessings to you and your loved ones in this Holy Season! “Peace on Earth, Good Will to All” is the spirit we need to carry in our hearts throughout the year. But we don’t have to look far to see that much work needs to be done to narrow the gap between word and deed.

      The United States now has military operations of one sort or another underway in Afghanistan, Cameroon, Chad, Iraq, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Somalia, Syria, Uganda, and Yemen. Very likely, this is an incomplete list. Donald Trump’s first year set a record for U.S. Special Ops. Elite U.S. commandos are now deployed in 149 countries in 2017. Overall, the U.S. has 800 military bases worldwide, and many people in the Middle East now regard the United States as the greatest menace to peace they face. In short, U.S. policy is all military –all the time!

Let this sink in: the US Government Has Killed More Than 20 Million People In 37 “Victim Nations” SinceWW2 https://anewkindofhuman.com/3486-2/

    Meanwhile, Philip Alston, the United Nations special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights recently completed a fact-finding tour of the U.S. Alston said that Trump and the U.S. Republican led Congress are attempting to turn the U.S. into the “world champion of extreme inequality.” Among other things, the Republican tax bill rushed through Congress will widen the gap between rich and poor. While the billionare class increases, it’s been reported that 60% of American families would have difficulty meeting a $500 emergency need for funds.
