Campaign to Protect Pohakuloa!

Strategy meeting to Shut Down the Military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA).

Aloha kakou,

I trust you got the  message about PTA strategy meeting Monday, Sept. 19th 6-9PM Keaau Community Center.  Please come and pass the word to others.  Mahalo.

Jim Albertini

Some things to think about:

1.  county action –follow up to Res 639-08

2.  State action? Dept of Health?

3.  Fed action?  Comprehensive archeological survey,  EIS on cumulative impacts

4.  legal review of Kaho’olawe court cases to see what applies

5.  Cultural access to sites at PTA — ahu, etc. Makahiki season coming up.

6.  Upcoming 9/30 meeting  at PTA  on programmatic agreement

7.  ongoing lawsuit by Ku Ching and Maxine Kahaulelio at PTA

8.  Military  Impacts to water well and aquifers

9.  Independent radiological survey.

10. Tour and briefing at PTA like Chamber of Commerce got.

11.  Contact Curtis Tyler and others on Pohakuloa Advisory Council

12.  Non-violent direct action focus  — convoys, etc.

13.  National legal suit on all areas where DU training has occurred (At least 15 other states)

14. Organization allies

15. Concerts, etc. to educate and mobilize

other ideas welcome
