George Helm

Protect Pohakuloa! Stop the Bombing!

Gathering at PTA Main Gate

10 AM – Noon

Wed. March 23, 2022

(Carpools leave Hilo 9 AM from Komohana and Saddle Rd.)

      March 23 is the Birthday of George Helm who was a leader of the Protect Kaho’olawe Ohana (PKO). George lost his life in 1977 along with Kimo Mitchell in the movement to Stop the Bombing of Kaho’olawe. The bombing was eventually stopped in 1990 due to the dedication of George, Kimo, and many others of the PKO movement. George, and kupuna of that movement remain an inspiration in our efforts to Stop the Bombing of Pohakuloa.

      Please join us on March 23rd to honor George and Protect Pohakulo and Stop the Bombing. The Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA), otherwise known as the Pohakuloa Toxic Area, is a 133,000-acre military live-fire range in the center of Hawaii Island that has been bombed for more than 75 years. Pohakuloa is nearly 5 times the size of Kaho’olawe. Millions of live rounds are fired annually at PTA and have involved a wide range of weapons and toxins, including radioactive Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation. When DU metal is hit with high explosives it is turned into DU oxide particles that can be carried long distances in the wind and easily inhaled causing various cancers and other serious health problems.

      Everyone on the Big Island is downhill and downwind from PTA which is at 6500 feet elevation. The land, water, air, people, plants, and animals, including the thousands of troops who train at PTA, are all part of a Military Sacrifice Zone. The bombing must be stopped, the military mess cleaned up, and the land returned to the Hawaiian people. Mahalo to Liam O’Malley of Lanihuli Farm for initiating this action in honor of George Helm.

Forever Aloha Aina!
