Protest Assassin Drones

in Hawaii

      Ten innocent Afghans, including 7 children, were recently killed by a US assassin MQ-9 “Reaper” drone. Below are photos of some of the victims. See the article by Hawaii retired US Army Colonel Ann Wright https://popularresistance.org/jail-killer-drone-operators-instead-of-drone-whistleblowers/

      Assassin Reaper drones are now based at the Marine Corps Air Station in Kaneohe, on Oahu for missions to kill in the Pacific and Asia. These assassin drones will no doubt train at the 133,000-acres Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) in the center of Hawaii Island. PTA already has a drone airfield where various military surveillance drones already train. More Reaper drones are scheduled to be based in Guam. Assassin drones, along with US nuclear sub technology going to Australia, and a major US military “pivot to Asia” is part of a new cold war. This new cold war is focused on China and could turn hot very quickly resulting in unprecedented global destruction.

      It is time for people of conscience to stand up and join in peaceful protests of the increasing militarization of Hawaii and threat of nuclear war. To now have assassination drones based in Hawaii adds to the huge US military presence in the islands – more than 100 military installations, including the Indo-Pacific command center and major force installations for the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. It is a gross violation of Hawaii’s aloha spirit and historic neutrality as an independent Pacific nation. And it underscores the importance of working for a de-militarized Free-Hawaii and world.

 Live Aloha! Wage Peace Not War!

Preventing Climate Catastrophe & Nuclear War! Sept. 17, 2021 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Preventing Climate

Catastrophe

& Nuclear War!

The Two key issues of our time amid a global pandemic

v

 

 

Peace & Justice for all including Mother Earth!  Respect the Sacred!

     The planet is burning and the fires are becoming more widespread and intense. At the same time, storms and mass flooding are increasing. Climate change is moving toward Climate catastrophe at a rapid pace. On a positive note, the United Nations has taken action to officially declare nuclear weapons illegal under international law. But 9 Outlaw rogue states continue to possess nuclear weapons: The U.S. Russia, China, Great Britain, Israel, France, India, Pakistan, and North Korea. Many of these countries continue to build new nuclear weapons, including super-sonic missiles and first-strike weapons, increasing the risk of intentional or accidental nuclear war and global destruction. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists famous Doomsday clock is not set at 100 seconds to midnight.

     The younger generations are demanding action and rightfully so. Humanity has no time to waste, We need a massive shift in thinking and resources away from waging war and toward restoring right relationships with people and the planet. It is time for global Ho’oponopono – to make right. Profit and greed have been the driving forces toward destruction. The common good must become the new driving force for justice, peace, and the earth. The present global Covid pandemic is underscoring our need to move away from selfishness and to act for the common good. The US needs to lead by example. The $Trillion dollar annual US war budget must be redirected to preventing climate catastrophe and uplifting the least among us.  Learn from native people to respect the sacred!

     More than 50 US corporations, including Nike, and FedEx, paid no Federal income tax last year on more than $40 billion in profits. The existence of a space race between billionaires Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson is a clear message that these billionaires aren’t being taxed nearly enough. We live in a world where over 1 billion people don’t even have a pair of shoes or flip flops. The inequality between rich and poor, and the pollution of our planet are shameful and criminal.  What’s your priority?

Multinational Corporate Profits

or Mother Earth?

“The only way to prevent nuclear war is to stop building nuclear weapons.”

The U.S. Grand Illusion Sept. 10, 2021 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

The U.S. Grand Illusion

Before 9-11 & Beyond

          A definition of illusion is – something that deceives or misleads intellectually. On Sept. 20, 2001 George W. Bush said “Americans are asking “Why do they hate us? His answer was “They hate our freedoms…” What George W. Bush said is part of the US Grand Illusion. Nevertheless, blessings to all who died on 9-11, in wars before and since then, and to loved ones still living.

      Let’s be clear. The NY World Trade Center and the Pentagon are not viewed globally as images of enduring freedom. If anything, they are symbols of global domination by the US empire. The US likes to project itself as “a beacon of freedom & democracy” despite committing genocide against native populations, a history of slavery, and numerous US military and CIA interventions waged around the world on behalf of corporate interest for control of resources. For a long list of US initiated coups and military interventions (millions killed and trillions wasted) see the book Killing Hope by William Blum.  Also read Bin Laden’s letter to America http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article6537.htm

Some Democrat and Republican Recent War Criminals!

 

      Since 9-11 the US has waged multiple wars in the greater Middle East including Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Lebanon, Somalia, etc. Let’s face it. It wasn’t about “freedom.” It was all about OIL. Let us not forget the US torture at Abu Graib prison, Guantanamo, and secret US prisons around the world. Also, the repressive US Patriot Act, prepared well in advance of 9-11, and quickly pushed through Congress after 9-11 that suspends the Bill of Rights in cases of terrorism. Let us also remember the massive US foreign and domestic surveillance state that has been established under the National Security Administration (NSA) and Homeland Security since 9-11. And let us question how we can wage an endless war against terrorism, when WAR ITSELF IS TERRORISM. It is for these reasons and more that much of the world views the US as the greatest threat to peace on the planet. In 1960 President Dwight Eisenhower warned about the growing danger of “the US Military Industrial Complex” (MIC). That complex is now named MICIMATT “Military-Industrial-Congress-Intelligence-Media-Academia-Think-Tank” complex, a term coined by former CIA analyst Raymond McGovern.  Let’s learn from 9-11. A war with China is not the answer to US defeat in Afghanistan.

Remember! It’s an Illusion to Think War is Peace, and Global Domination is Freedom!.
