April 18, 2019 Pohakuloa Protest

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

Please Help Pass the Word.  Mahalo!

     On Thursday, April 18, 2019 the 133,000-acre military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) is hosting an “Experience Pohakuloa Day” event at the base from 9AM till 1PM. School children, parents and people from the community are being invited on base. It should be noted that Pohakuloa is a hazardous toxic waste dump from more than 75 years of live-fire training of weapons by the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. More than 14 million live-rounds are fired annually at Pohakuloa. Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation rounds have been used at PTA.

     Below is a short public service announcement with a link to a video by Dr. Lorrin Pang, MD, retired Army Medical Corps about the dangers of inhaling small particles of DU oxide that can be carried long distances by the winds.  Please share this PSA widely, especially with parents who have school children that may be considering a visit to Pohakuloa. Hope to see you in protest at Pohakuloa on Thursday, April 18th.

Please view the short video of Dr. Lorrin Pang, M.D., public health officer and retired Army Medical Corps explaining the health dangers of inhaling DU oxide dust particles (See https://vimeo.com/19153948).

Allowing children in your care to attend programs at Pohakuloa unnecessarily puts them at risk.

Stop Trump’s Axis of Evil. No War on Venezuela, Iran, etc.

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

Stop Trump’s Axis of Evil

                                                            

                                        

        

  John Bolton                                        Mike Pompeo                                         Elliott Abrams

Veterans Call on U.S. Troops to Resist Illegal Orders to Invade Venezuela

It is illegal under both U.S. and international law to launch a military attack against another nation unless it is clearly in self-defense, and is approved by the United Nations.

Veterans For Peace (VFP) calls on all members of the U.S. military to refuse illegal orders to intervene in Venezuela. Furthermore, VFP urges all U.S. military leaders to inform the president that they will order their units to stand down from preparations to invade Venezuela.  

Veterans For Peace President, Gerry Condon states, “While President Trump speaks of supporting democracy in Venezuela and Latin America, the real purpose of the U.S. assault on the Venezuelan government is to fully open the vast Venezuelan oil reserves to U.S. and other Western oil corporations as well as to destroy progressive governments in Latin America that put their own peoples’ needs above the profits of foreign corporations.”

Have we learned nothing from decades of regime change wars and the chaos that follows? Is Iran next?

  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.

Parents of young children and pregnant women are warned of the dangers of DU (Depleted Uranium) and other military toxins at the Pohakuloa Training Area!

Please view the short video of Dr. Lorrin Pang, M.D., public health officer and retired Army Medical Corps explaining the health dangers of inhaling DU oxide dust particles (See https://vimeo.com/19153948). As Dr. Pang explains, especially vulnerable are young children and pregnant women.

Mauna Kea is Sacred! Where do you stand?

Tuesday, March 12th, 2019

 

Mauna Kea is Sacred!  Where do YOU Stand?

     Historically mountains have been recognized as sacred. Mount Sinai, Mount Fujii, Mount Everest and many others. Historically the role of religion has been losing out to the interests of money-making (development). Those who claim to be “religious” SHOULD all be standing beside the Kanaka Maoli and supporting their claim that Mauna Kea is sacred and should not have a TMT built on it! Shame on the silence of the religious, especially those who have participated in “inter-religious” and “inter-faith” organizations. Religion is not something found in museums. Religion is based on one’s faith. If one expects one’s religion to be respected, then respect the religion of others. Kanaka Maoli, like all human beings have the right to have their religion recognized and respected.

     Sacred is Sacred!  No TMT or development of any kind on the sacred summit area of Mauna Kea

            Do What is Right & Just!   No More Desecration! 

Time for Kapu Aloha 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!

      To Police – County, State,  Federal, and private security guards: Refuse if ordered to arrest Mauna Kea Protectors against further desecration of Mauna Kea by TMT construction.  Non-cooperation with evil is as much a moral duty as cooperation with good.

 
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.
