Stop US Military Madness!

The military in Hawaii is out of control and having a deadly impact on the life of our lands like they did on Kaho’olawe.” Walter Ritte, Hawaiian activist 4/29/24

Up to 7 Air Force military space telescopes are planned for Haleakala on Maui (photo below). Sentinel Landscape military buffer zones around military bases are planned on Oahu, Kauai, and Hawaii Island. Military covert Special Operations (Assassination training) are taking place OUTSIDE military bases on all islands, using tourists and local people unknowingly as props. US military Assassin Reaper Drones are also now training in Hawaii.

Air Force Site on Haleakala, Maui for up to 7 telescopes

Hawaii is already one of the most militarized (and military-poisoned) places on the planet. There are more than 100 active US military installations in Hawaii. On Hawaii Island alone, there are at least 57 present and former US military sites on land totaling more than 250,000 acres in need of military cleanup – everything from unexploded ordnance to military chemical and biological weapons, Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation, etc. After more than $400 million was spent to clean up Kaho’olawe, the island is still littered with unexploded ordnance on land and in nearshore waters. Pearl Harbor, once Hawaii’s fish breeding center, is now a military-polluted Superfund site. Nuclear waste has been discharged into Pearl Harbor and more than 2000 fifty-five-gallon drums of military nuclear waste have been dumped off Oahu’s southern shores. Military jet fuel has leaked from massive underground fuel tanks at Red Hill on Oahu, contaminating the groundwater supply of more than 100,000 people, including military families. The full extent of military groundwater contamination is still unknown.

Sentinel Landscape is the creation of modern-day buffer-zone “land moats” around the castles of US militarism. Those who got to lease the castle “land moats” on Oahu and Kauai have been mainly chemical GMO biotech Fortune 500 seed corporations. Whatever farm crops and animals raised near a toxic stew base like Pohakuloa, will likely carry the toxins of the base. A 10-mile radius “Sentinel Landscape” buffer zone is being proposed for Pohakuloa. It is said that most or all of Oahu, Kauai, and the Big Island could be designated as a Sentinel Landscape in service of US militarism.

Malu ‘Aina Annual Appeal for Support

Malu ‘Aina Annual Appeal

December 2023

Aloha Friends,

   Once a year, during this Holy season, I write to ask for your help to sustain the work of Malu ‘Aina, an all-volunteer organization committed to justice, peace, and a living planet for generations to come. It seems such work is more critical than ever before. There is so much suffering from war, injustice, and the climate crisis.

    2023 marks 44 years since the founding of Malu 'Aina. Some of you have been with us from the start. Others more recently. Please know, we appreciate all of you for your solidarity and donations of support. You are our base. To maintain our independence and critical voice, we do not seek corporate or government funding. We started grassroots and want to stay grassroots.

    We remain committed to the principle of non-violence, kapu aloha, as our guiding light. We believe deeply that the means we use must be in line with the end that we seek. We would like to transition to the next generation of leadership, but the going is tough. We hope the vision of Malu ‘Aina will be carried forward. Your ideas, and suggestions of next-generation leaders, both Volunteer Farm and Board members, are encouraged. (See our enclosed search letter.)

    We continue to grow food at Malu ‘Aina to share with people in need, but with limited volunteer farm help. We have long served as an emergency food pantry. Each week we also write a new peace leaflet for widespread distribution and conduct a peace vigil at the downtown Hilo Post Office/Federal Building. Friday, Dec. 1 2023, marks 1157 consecutive weekly peace leaflets, for a vigil that started the day after Sept. 11, 2001. You can read the new weekly leaflet on our website www.malu-aina.org. In addition, we continue our efforts to de-militarize Hawaii and the planet and shift resources from warfare to healthcare, education, feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, and protecting the environment. Protecting the planet from nuclear war and climate disasters are the two greatest challenges facing human civilization.

    We have plenty of work to do.  Our 40 plus year-old-farm tractor continues to be up and running after being down for nearly 2 years when parts couldn’t be found for needed repairs. But on the farm and in our other work, we could use more people power along with donations. Mahalo for your continued financial support and solidarity in this journey of working for justice, peace, and aloha ‘aina. You are a blessing and very much appreciated.

With gratitude and aloha,

Jim Albertini

Malu ‘Aina Annual Appeal

December 2022

Aloha friends,

     Once a year, during this Holy season, I write to ask for your help to sustain the work of Malu ‘Aina, an all-volunteer organization committed to justice, peace, and a living planet for generations to come.

     2022 marks 43 years since the founding of Malu 'Aina. Some of you have been with us from the start. Others more recently. Please know, we appreciate all of you for your solidarity and donations of support. You are our base. To maintain our independence and critical voice, we do not seek corporate or government funding. We started grassroots and want to stay grassroots.

  We remain committed to the principle of non-violence, kapu aloha, as our guiding light. We believe deeply that the means we use must be in line with the end that we seek. Currently, we are in transition to the next generations of leadership.  It's a slow process but we hope the vision of Malu ‘Aina will be carried forward for generations to come. Your ideas, and suggestions for next-generation leaders, are encouraged.

  We continue to grow food at Malu ‘Aina to share with people in need, but with limited volunteer farm help. We have long served as an emergency food pantry. Each week we also write a new peace leaflet for widespread distribution and conduct a peace vigil at the downtown Hilo Post Office/Federal Building. Friday, Nov. 25, 2022, marked 1104 consecutive weekly peace leaflets, for a vigil that started the day after Sept. 11, 2001. You can read the new weekly leaflet on our website www.malu-aina.org. In addition, we continue our efforts to de-militarize Hawaii and the planet and shift resources from warfare to healthcare, education, and protecting the environment. Protecting the planet from nuclear war and climate disasters are the two biggest challenges facing human civilization.

  We have plenty of work to do.  Our 40 year-old-farm tractor was not running for nearly 2 years. We had difficulty finding parts. But thanks to the help of a volunteer mechanic friend and your financial help it’s now running again. A younger driver would be helpful to this senior citizen turning 76. Mahalo for your continued financial support and solidarity in this journey of working for justice, peace, and aloha ‘aina. You are a blessing and very much appreciated.

With gratitude and aloha,

Jim Albertini
