Aug. 7, 2020 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet on Hiroshima – Nagasaki Never Again

Tuesday, August 4th, 2020

I posted the leaflet below on the Pohakuloa Training Area Facebook page on the evening of Aug. 3, 2020.  I just checked the page on Aug. 4th at 6:30AM.  My post has been removed. 

Hiroshima – Nagasaki Never Again!

75th Anniversary!

                                                                         cloud

The use of nuclear weapons anywhere is a crime against humanity.

Brothers and sisters in the military: Refuse to engage in nuclear annihilation.

Refuse Illegal Orders

Refuse to kill innocent civilians

Refuse the order to use nuclear weapons

      On August 6, 1945 the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb named “Little Boy” on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, on August 9th the U.S. dropped a second atomic bomb named “Fat Man” on Nagasaki. In two blinding flashes of light, heat and radiation, hundreds of thousands of people were killed. By today’s standards, those bombs were “small.” The nuclear arsenals of the world can destroy the world many times over. Currently nine nations possess nuclear weapons: the U.S., Russia, United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, and Israel.

      Hawaii is a major U.S. military command center, staging and training ground for nuclear war. Camp H.M. Smith located on Oahu above Aloha Stadium is the U.S. Indo-Pacific Military Command center for more than half the earth. Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam is home to nuclear warships and B-2 strategic nuclear bombers. The Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) is a training ground for nuclear war for all branches of the military. Radiation from military nuclear weapons training has contaminated the land on several Hawaiian islands and military nuclear waste has been dumped in Hawaiian waters.

The U.S. Congress spends Trillions of dollars on wars with little or no dissent but haggles over providing $600 a week to unemployed workers amid a global pandemic. Shameful values!

BAN ALL NUKES NOW!

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.

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!

No Lie Can Live Forever! End US Occupation!
