The Military Tries To Sell Itself As Positive Environmental Force

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

Living & Resting in Peace

Questions to Ponder!


               Could it be the U.S. is poking around in other people’s business and taking their stuff? Or worse yet, killing them indiscriminately….

Is this what the U.S. means when it calls itself the “exceptional” nation?  Is this why so many people hate the U.S.?

If we want peace, we need to work for justice!

 No More War!

Stop the Violence!  Stop the Bombing!

Malama Honua!  Care for the Earth!

And one another!

  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.
