Your Support for Malu ‘Aina is Needed

Annual Christmas Appeal

December 2016 

Dear Friends,  

     Once a year, I write to ask for your help to sustain the work of Malu ‘Aina for justice, peace and a healthy planet. As an all volunteer organization, with no corporate or government funding, Malu ‘Aina has been planting seeds and sharing food with people in need for the past 36 years.  In all that we do, the spirit of Aloha ‘Aina (Love for the Land) and nonviolence guide us. But we know we can’t do it alone. It takes a movement of people power, commitment, and donations to carry on.  You have been an important part of this effort and we thank you for your solidarity in the journey.

     The stakes couldn’t be higher. One of our recent weekly Peace Vigil leaflets sums it up. “Prevent Climate Disaster & Nuclear War,” and stand in solidarity with people struggling for justice and protecting the Sacred in every way possible. In an increasingly militarized and corporate dominated world, it is hard to learn the lesson that we cannot bomb, kill, and exploit our way to justice, peace, and a healthy planet.

     Your support and solidarity keep us from being discouraged and remind us that we are stronger together. We pledge to you our commitment to carry on and never give up. Blessings of this holy season to you and your loved ones.

With gratitude and aloha,
Jim Albertini

      Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press go hand-in-hand. They are guaranteed under the First Amendment. Read the important article by Ben Norton and Glenn Greenwald entitled “Washington Post Disgracefully Promotes a McCarthyite Blacklist From a New, Hidden, and Very Shady Group. The Washington Post and this new shady group smears dozens of U.S. news sites that are critical of U.S. foreign policy as being “routine peddlers of Russian propaganda.” – Read the article about the smear here: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45927.htm Also read Washington Post Promotes Shadowy Website That Accuses 200 Publications of Being Russian Propaganda Plants <https://is.gd/HBTUjL>

A New Thanksgiving!

Save Civilization:

Prevent Climate Disaster & Nuclear War!

earth-crying

     The stakes couldn’t be higher. It is imperative that people mobilize, stand up, speak out, and become activists to make a difference. We have no time to waste. In the face of impending climate disaster from accelerating global warming, and escalating wars and global tensions that could result in the use of nuclear weapons, the time to act to save civilization is now.

     Silence in the face of injustice, violence, and evil is not a responsible option. It is part of the problem. The time for band aides being applied to deep systematic problems is wishful thinking. It is time to stand united in protest against injustice, violence, and evil in all its forms –racism, sexism, bigotry, war, exploitation, the addiction to money and power, and the destruction of the planet. Too many have lost sight of respecting the sacred, protecting the planet, and building communities and a world based on principles of justice and peace for all.

     Let the power of non-violence (Kapu Aloha) be your guiding light. Draw from your own spiritual well, and the strength and wisdom passed to you by your ancestors. Speak for the voiceless – the earth — air, land and sea, and for future generations depending on our responsible actions now. Demonstrate your solidarity with victims of injustice. When we fail to speak, we speak. When we fail to act, we act. No longer be afraid to show the courage of your convictions. Give new meaning to Thanksgiving!

Resistance Means Life!

  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.
