Friday Hilo Peace Vigil to resume May 22, 2020

Tuesday, May 19th, 2020

Aloha kakou,

March 27, 2020 was the last time we physically conducted the Friday Hilo Peace Vigil. That’s nearly 2 months. Since that time we have been writing and spreading the Peace Vigil message of justice and peace via the internet only. It seems to be the consensus that it’s time to resume the peace vigil on Friday, May 22nd. 3:30-5PM at the downtown Hilo Post Office/Federal Building, but to do so in a safe and responsible manner observing 6 feet social distancing and participants wearing face masks.

I have made 10 new signs (5 each) saying “Cancel RIMPAC” and Cancel Pohakuloa Lease” to go along with the wide range of sings we already have. Below is this week’s peace leaflet. Please share with family and friends. We welcome anyone who is free to join us on Friday.

Mahalo,

Jim Albertini

Trump’s New “Super-

Duper” Nuclear Missiles

 

I call it the super-duper missile.” Donald J. Trump

It’s Trump’s Howdy Doody “Doomsday” Time!

      According to an article by Karl Grossman in Counterpunch, “The United States is seeking to acquire “volumes of hundreds or even thousands” of nuclear-capable hypersonic missiles that are “stealthy” and can fly undetected at 3,600 miles per hour, five times faster than the speed of sound.

     Why so many? A Pentagon official is quoted in the current issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology as saying “we have to be careful we’re not building boutique weapons. If we build boutique weapons, we won’t—we’ll be very reluctant to—use them.”

      “The article in the aerospace industry trade journal is headlined: “Hypersonic Mass Production.” A subhead reads: “Pentagon Forms Hypersonic Industry ‘War Room.’” On March 19, 2020, the U.S. conducted its first hypersonic missile test from its Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai, Hawaii.”

     These Hypersonic missiles fly fast, Trump claims 17 times faster than any existing rockets, they fly at low altitudes, mostly invisible to radar, and can maneuver during flight.

      In this time of global Covid pandemic, it is more important than ever to focus on Healthcare not Warfare. Fund human needs. Cancel RIMPAC military war games by 25 countries now scheduled for Hawaii in August 2020, and begin to demilitarize Hawaii and the world.

Stop the Military Flyovers

Wednesday, May 13th, 2020

US War Planes — Stay at Home!

Hawaii will be participating in the national military propaganda Fly Overs that have been taking place for the past several weeks throughout the U.S. and continuing in the weeks ahead.  .  Thursday, May 14, 2020 military Fuel Tankers, Transport aircraft and F-22 Stealth Raptor bombers will fly over all Hawaii islands between 11AM and 2PM.

F-22s cost $412 million each and $68,000 per hour to fly.

These False gods of metal are stealing money that should be going to frontline workers for personal protective equipment (PPE) and hazard pay, and for Covid 19 testing that at present is very inadequate.  

Stop Glorifying War and Weapons of Mass Destruction.  Fund Healthcare not Warfare.  Feed the hungry and shelter the homeless.  Wage peace not war!  Stop the Military Flyovers!  US war planes GO Home! And Stay Home!

Reporters stand up to Trump

Reporters Refused to Let Trump Bully Them Into Silence, So He Ran Away

https://theintercept.com/2020/05/12/two-female-reporters-refused-let-trump-bully-silence-ran-away/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=The%20Intercept%20Newsletter

Very good article by Robert Mackey of the Intercept.  Reporters Weijia Jiang of CBS, Kaitlan Collins of CNN, and 
Yamiche Alcindor of PBS showed real courage time and time again in standing up to Trump.
