Report on Hilo Women’s march Jan. 21

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

I’m just home from the Hilo Women’s March.  Despite Rainy weather the turn out was massive.  My estimate would be over 2000, perhaps 3000.  The program of music and speakers was excellent and really built for unity. Jackie Pualani Johnson lead off with a beautiful Kahea (Call) that set the positive tone for the rights of women, native people and other people of color, the poor, people with disabilities, Muslims, immigrants, and issues of health care, climate disaster, and peace. There will be important work in the days ahead to support one another as the Trump agenda is brought forward.

Stand in solidarity always,

Jim Albertini

Aloha kakou,

This Friday is our 800th consecutive weekly Hilo peace vigil at the downtown Hilo Fed. bldg./Post office.  It’s also Trump’s Inauguration Day so I expect a larger crowd than usual. (See below)  I’ll be bringing a portable sound system for speakers and some music.   Mahalo and solidarity for justice, peace, and aloha ‘aina.

Jan. 20, 2017 Hilo peace Vigil leaflet on Speak Up Now!#2

“When the truth is replaced with silence, the silence is a lie”.   Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko  

 

Speak Up Now!

                                           first they came                                                         

First Trump came for the women
and I didn’t speak up–
Because I wasn’t a woman.

Then Trump came for the people with disabilities and I didn’t speak up–
Because I didn’t have a disability.

         Then Trump came for Native Americans and Native Hawaiians but  I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t Native

Then Trump came for the African Americans
and I didn’t speak up–
Because I wasn’t African American.

Then Trump came for the Mexicans
and I didn’t speak up–
Because I wasn’t Mexican.

Then Trump came for the Muslims
and I didn’t speak up–
Because I wasn’t Muslim.

Then Trump came for the gay, bi, and trans people and I didn’t speak up–
Because I wasn’t gay, bi or trans.

Then Trump came for the Jews & Palestinians
and I didn’t speak up–
Because I wasn’t a Jew or Palestinian

Then Trump came for the journalists
And I didn’t speak up–
Because I wasn’t a journalist.

Will Trump come for me next?
If I do not speak up Now, who am I?

If Not Now, When?

There is such a thing as being Too Late!
