Cancel RIMPAC 2020!  Stop Bombing 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.
