US radiation fallout from nuclear tests in Nevada

No automatic alt text available.

Fallout Map — Areas of the continental United States crossed by more than one nuclear cloud during the atmospheric atomic tests.
The atomic blasts of the 1950s and 1960s illuminated the Southwestern deserts, shattering windows in Las Vegas and hurled billowing clouds of radioactive dust.
For many years these clouds drifted across America poisoning animals and people in Utah and searing the boot soles of troops on maneuvers just yards from ground zero being used as “Atomic Guinea Pigs.”

What will we have learned 50 years from now about the toxic legacy of U.S. weapons testing 
and training at Pohakuloa?

“THIS IS NOT A DRILL”

A Citizens Response to the Growing Threat of Nuclear War &

Hawaii’s Monthly Nuclear Attack Siren Tests

NO NUKES!

NO WAR!

NO NEED SIRENS!

     On Tuesday, January 2, 2018, and the first working day of each following month, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency will test its nuclear attack warning sirens statewide at 11:45AM.

     Wherever you are, come out into a visible public place, in your neighborhood, along a public roadway, etc. and hold a sign for 15-30 minutes from 11:30-12 noon on the day of the Nuclear Attack Siren Test with a message such as “No Nukes, No War, No Need Sirens, The Only Shelter is Peace.” The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency wants us to know that if the sirens wail and its not a drill people will have only 15 minutes notice to take shelter before a possible nuclear explosion.

     Malu ‘Aina’s message is “the only shelter is Peace.” Nuclear weapons have made our world defenseless. The only real defense against nuclear weapons is to stop building them. On July 7, 2017 the UN General Assembly overwhelming voted (122 yes, 1 no) to abolish nuclear weapons. Earth’s future now hangs in the balance. The U.S. is the only country on earth to ever use nuclear weapons. Today the U.S. has Korea, China, Russia, and Iran, surrounded with U.S. military installations. The U.S. has a major responsibility to help the world step back from the nuclear abyss. It is up to each one of us to let our voices be heard — NO Nukes, NO War, NO Need Siren Tests! The future of unborn generations depend on what we do, or don’t do, now.

Aloha Not War! Happy New Year!

The Only Shelter is Peace!

  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.
