Say NO to Army PTA Lease Extension!

STOP BOMBING POHAKULOA!

      The Army is beginning the process of studying the impacts of continuing to use state leased lands at Pohakuloa beyond 2029. All comments should be submitted by the deadline of Oct. 14, 2020. Comments can be emailed to: usarmy.hawaii.nepa@mail.mil or submitted on line or mailed by US mail.  Here is the Army homepage for the EIS. https://home.army.mil/hawaii/index.php/ptaeis/project-home There will also be an EIS Scoping Virtual Open House on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 from 4-9 p.m. During the EIS Scoping Virtual Open House, video presentations can be viewed online at https://home.army.mil/hawaii/index.php/PTAEIS and oral and written comments will be accepted. More information can be found at: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/09/04/2020-19620/environmental-impact-statement-for-army-training-land-retention-at-phakuloa-training-area-in-hawaii

      Here are a few issues you might want to comment on: Unexploded ordinance (UXO) clean up, Depleted Uranium and other toxic contamination of air, land and ground water, invasive species, cultural sites and the cultural significance of Pohakuloa itself. The military controls nearly 133,000-acres at Pohakuloa. 23,000 acres of this is leased from the state for $1 total for 65 years –1964- 2029. These so called “ceded lands” are crown and government lands of the Hawaiian Kingdom before the U.S. overthrow in 1893. These lands are in the ahupua’a of Humu’ula (crown), Kaohe and Pu’uanahulu (government lands). Besides the 23,000 acres of leased lands at PTA, 758 acres were obtained by an executive order of Governor Samuel Wilder King in 1956 and 84,000 acres by a Presidential Executive Order of President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964. These lands by executive order were turned over to the US military without any compensation.More recently, in the early 2000s, an additional 23,000 acres of land near Waiki’i Ranch was purchased by the military from Parker Ranch.

      Today, we need a broad based citizen movement to Stop the Bombing of Pohakuloa, like the movement that stopped the bombing of Kaho’olawe. All the lands at Pohakuloa should be cleaned up by the US military and returned to the Hawaiian people. An important step in this process of de-militarizing Pohakuloa and Hawaii is to stop the PTA lease extension. Please speak up and get your ohana and friends involved. Your voice is important. We are stronger when we stand together for aloha aina.

July 31, 2020 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet on Hawaii Sovereignty Restoration Day

Tuesday, July 28th, 2020

Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea –

Sovereignty Restoration Day!

    

     July 31, 1843, is the day King Kamehameha III was restored by Admiral Richard Thomas of the British Royal Navy, to his rightful position as the ruling King of the Hawaiian Islands. It is the day King Kamehameha III spoke the following words: “Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka Aina I Ka Pono. The sovereignty of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.” Four months later, on November 28, 1843, the United Kingdom and the Kingdom of France issued a joint proclamation formally recognizing the Hawaiian Kingdom as an equal, sovereign state. The United States followed suit shortly after. The day of the joint proclamation is known as Lā Kuʻokoʻa – Independence Day. This year is the 177th Anniversary Celebration of both of those momentous events in the history of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

HI 

                                               When will the United States, remove its flag from Hawaii, a symbol of U.S. military occupation, and once again rightfully recognize and restore the Hawaiian Nation as an equal sovereign state?

Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka Aina I Ka Pono!
