BACK FROM THE BRINK

OF NUCLEAR WAR!

Jan. 13th marked the  2ND ANNIVERSARY OF THE FALSE EMERGENCY NUCLEAR ALERT about an incoming nuclear missile to Hawaii that caused mass panic.

The article below –“Back from the Brink” speaks to the danger of nuclear war and notes resolutions already passed by dozens of cities including Honolulu, Philadelphia, LA, etc. We need your support. Urge the Hawaii County Council and Councils throughout the U.S. to pass a similar resolution.

                     https://truthout.org/articles/cities-in-the-crosshairs-are-pushing-back-against-nuclea

Support 5 basic points:

1. No first use of nukes

                2.  Restrict presidential authority to launch nukes         

3.  Nukes off hair trigger alert

4. Cancel modernization of nukes

5. Work for total nuclear disarmament

      The 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA), located in the center of Hawaii island, is used as a training ground for nuclear war. Three B-2 strategic nuclear bombers are deployed from joint base Pearl Harbor – Hickam on Oahu and train at Pohakuloa.  B-2 and B-52 strategic bombers fly from Louisiana, Missouri, and Guam to also practice nuclear bombing runs at Pohakuloa. Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation contamination at PTA is due to the training with the Davy Crockett nuclear weapon system spotting rounds dating back to the 1960s. 

      Hawaii County was the first municipality in the US to pass a law declaring itself a Nuclear-Free Zone in 1981. Today, hundreds of other municipalities have followed Hawaii County’s example. Hawaii County also passed resolution 639-08 by a vote of 8-1 in July 2008 calling for an end to all live-fire at Pohakuloa until there was a complete independent assessment and clean up of the Depleted Uranium (DU) contamination at PTA.  To date, this has not been done nor any of the other 7 actions called for in that resolution.

      Today, our world is facing existential threats from climate catastrophe and nuclear war.  Let us find ways to stand up, speak out, and take positive action now.  We all know there is such a thing as being too late! 

Stop Bombing Pohakuloa!  Shut Down PTA!

Clean Up the Military Mess Here and Everywhere!

Make the World Nuclear-Free!

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.

Cities in the Crosshairs Are Pushing Back Against Nuclear Weapons

Jan. 4, 2020 Gathering outside the gates at Pohakuloa

Sunday, January 5th, 2020

PTA Commander Lt. Col. Loreto Borce, jr. local born Filipino from Kalihi on Oahu, did
not accept our invitation to come outside the gates to discuss and answer questions
from the public and news media about Depleted Uranium and other toxins at Pohakuloa.
His promise of openness and transparency when first becoming commander has not been kept.
Same old, same old. Sad.
