QUIT  TMT

Respect Sacred Mauna Kea

Time for Kapu Aloha (non-violence) for Everyone! Protectors, Police, Mayor, Prosecutor, County Council, State Legislators, Governor, Attorney General, UH President and Board of Regents, BLNR, DOCARE, Congressional Delegation, Military, Business people, EVERYONE!

      This is an appeal to all people, especially to county, state, federal and international officials and business interests in China, Japan, India, Canada and the US supporting the multi-billion dollar 18 story Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Hawaii’s most sacred temple – Mauna Kea. Remember, we are living in an illegally occupied nation – The Hawaiian Kingdom. The legitimate government of Queen Lili’uokalani was illegally overthrown in 1893 by greedy business interests with the assistance of the US Marines. The Hawaiian Kingdom remains illegally occupied today. The State of Hawaii land leases involving Mauna Kea are illegal.

Do What is Right & Just!   No More Desecration!

      To Police – County, State,  Federal, and private security guards: Call in sick or outright refuse if ordered to Mauna Kea to arrest Protectors of Sacred Mauna Kea against further desecration by TMT construction. Hawaii and the world are in the midst of a major clash of values that will determine the future of life on earth. To a great extent it boils down to big business interests for profit vs native values caring for the earth – Malama Honua.

Respect Hawaiian Spiritual Practice!   

  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.

126 Years of Illegal US Occupation

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

126 Years of Illegal U.S. Occupation 

Hawaii’s Queen Lili’uokalani

     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.

     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.  $92,000 is now considered low income on Oahu. 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 by scientific development including the 13th telescope – TMT. 133,000-acres at Pohakuloa continue to be desecrated, bombed and contaminated with military toxins, and 90% of food consumed in Hawai’i is now imported to what was once a 100% food self sufficient society.  Aloha ‘Aina –Mauka to Makai!  Malama Honua!  Save the planet!

     Today, a new military coup of sorts is being carried out in Hawaii. It’s called “Special Ops.” Covert military water, land, and air-based trainings OUTSIDE of military bases are being planned. They will be carried out in coastal nearshore waters, shorelines, and inland locations on all islands involving Navy, Army, Marines and Air Force. This is a gross expansion, normalization, and glorification of militarism and war in our communities. It will only add to the catastrophic consequences – environmental, cultural, etc. of 126 years of illegal US military occupation of Hawaii. In short, it is military training to do to other nations what the US has already done to the Hawaiian Kingdom –overthrow its government and illegally occupy it’s territory. Justice demands the U.S. end it’s illegal occupation and restore Hawai’i as it was –an independent nation of military neutrality.

Stop this Military Madness! Free Hawaii 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.

Military Special Ops Planned for Hawaii!, Jan. 11, 2019 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

Military Special Ops Planned for Hawaii!

— water, land, and air-based training outside of military bases, in coastal nearshore waters, shorelines, and inland locations on non-federal lands throughout Hawaii involving Navy, Army, Marines, and Air Force! The training includes covert assassination missions but you won’t see that mentioned in the EA document.

 

hundreds of trainings in groups up to 46

lasting 4–96 hours each

      A Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to supposedly analyze the potential impacts of the Special Ops.  See it here Environmental Assessment Open for Public Review It made a Finding of No Significant Impacts (FONSI).  THE FINDING IS A LIE!  The deadline for public comments on the Draft EA was Jan. 7, 2019. This massive intrusion into our coastal nearshore waters, public shorelines and public spaces has lots of significant impacts – cultural, environmental, etc., including the expansion, normalization, and glorification of militarism and war in our communities.  Hawaii is already one of the most militarized places on the planet with more than 100 military installations.  The consequences of these installations along with more than 125 years of illegal US military occupation of Hawaii has been catastrophic. 

      US military Special Ops (that include drone and sniper assassinations) are desperate attempts on behalf of the US empire to maintain global domination for corporate interests.  This Military Madness needs to stop.  The US needs to learn Hawaiian Ho’oponopono, a process of healing, making right instead of waging war.  The US military needs to clean up the massive mess it has made in Hawaii — unexploded ordinance, chemical and nuclear contamination, etc. and then demilitarize Hawaii, pay reparations, end its illegal occupation and restore Hawaii as it was –an independent nation of military neutrality.

Stop the U.S. Killing Machine!

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.
