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.

Join the Hilo Weekly Peace Vigil!

Friday, Dec. 1, 2017 marks the 845th consecutive weekly Hilo Peace Vigil held at the downtown Post Office 3:30-5PM

Police Threaten “Jaywalking” for Leafleting!

      Each week a new peace leaflet is prepared for distribution via the internet and paper copies handed out at the vigil. On Friday, Nov. 24 Hawaii County Police officers, P. Rose, badge #398 and C. Antonio, badge #380 showed up at the Hilo Peace Vigil. The officers said they had received a complaint of people handing out leaflets in the street. No name of who complained was identified. Jim Albertini gave the officers the weekly leaflet. Jim was asked for identification info –name, age, DOB, address (mailing and physical address), last 4 digits of SS #. Officer Antonio, who was the senior of the 2 officers, said it is jaywalking to step off the curb to offer a leaflet to drivers of cars stopped at the red light heading south on one way Kino’ole St. The officers said they will cite Jim for jaywalking if they have another complaint and observe Jim off the curb leafleting to drivers in stopped cars. In the past 844 weeks at least 250,000 leaflets have been handed out on the corner of Kino’ole and Waianuenue St. to passing motorists. People are greeted with “Aloha” and thanked for taking a leaflet. People are encouraged to sign up at our www.malu-aina.org website to receive new posts electronically and to pass our leaflet/website on to friends.

      There is an increasingly repressive atmosphere growing in the U.S. towards peaceful free speech expression. While peace activists are threatened with “Jaywalking” for just stepping off the curb to offer peace leaflets to drivers of stopped cars at the traffic light, other “jaywalkers” are ignored. Each week dozens of people cross the street in the middle of the block from the post office, and other places throughout Hawaii, who are not threatened with jaywalking citations. Meanwhile, the U.S. is waging war and special ops in numerous countries killing and injuring millions, and now threatening nuclear war. In this climate of repression and war it’s becoming more difficult to even hand out a leaflet of dissent.
