Hawaii is #1 Covid Hot Spot

covid 

Hawaii now has the highest Covid 19 infection and virus reproduction rate in the U.S. We need to act responsibly to help protect one another.

Please Wear a Mask! Practice Social Distancing! Wash hands frequently!

Keep everyone, including teachers, students, and kupuna safe!

Hawaii needs more, better, and quicker, low cost testing.

And more contact tracers too!

Governor Ige and all government officials need to put Public Health ahead of the Tourist industry and other economic interests. People Before Profits!

      These are unprecedented times. There is no escape under sail, plane, etc. anywhere these days on this tiny planet.  Climate catastrophe and nuclear weapons ability to destroy the whole world have been trying to tell us this for a long time.  Now Covid 19 too. Sadly, we haven’t been listening and taking the necessary actions together for the common good.  The urgency is now! As long as we are still breathing, we can contribute something in this effort for a better world. Let’s do it!

Cancel RIMPAC in 2020 & Forever!

Redirect military spending to fund human needs! Healthcare Not Warfare!

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.
