Protest Assassination Drones in Hawaii – Sept. 24, 2021 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Protest Assassin Drones

in Hawaii

      Killer “Reaper” drone firing a Hellfire missile

      Ten innocent Afghans, including 7 children, were recently killed by a US assassin MQ-9 “Reaper” drone. Below are photos of some of the victims. See the article by Hawaii retired US Army Colonel Ann Wright https://popularresistance.org/jail-killer-drone-operators-instead-of-drone-whistleblowers/

      Assassin Reaper drones are now based at the Marine Corps Air Station in Kaneohe, on Oahu for missions to kill in the Pacific and Asia. These assassin drones will no doubt train at the 133,000-acres Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) in the center of Hawaii Island. PTA already has a drone airfield where various military surveillance drones already train. More Reaper drones are scheduled to be based in Guam. Assassin drones, along with US nuclear sub technology going to Australia, and a major US military “pivot to Asia” is part of a new cold war. This new cold war is focused on China and could turn hot very quickly resulting in unprecedented global destruction.

      It is time for people of conscience to stand up and join in peaceful protests of the increasing militarization of Hawaii and threat of nuclear war. To now have assassination drones based in Hawaii adds to the huge US military presence in the islands – more than 100 military installations, including the Indo-Pacific command center and major force installations for the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. It is a gross violation of Hawaii’s aloha spirit and historic neutrality as an independent Pacific nation. And it underscores the importance of working for a de-militarized Free-Hawaii and world.

 Live Aloha! Wage Peace Not War!

Reducing Energy Consumption: The Only Long-Range Solution to Climate Change

Unless we’re willing to give up some of our power over nature—our power to extract and transform resources and deliver the goods that we have come to rely on—then we’re destined to careen from one disaster to the next until our worst fears are realized.

Fires, floods, killer heat-waves, droughts, and hurricanes are ravaging homes and families throughout the world. Some fear that this might be the new normal; however, the truth is that this is just the start of something much worse.
 
by Andrea Germanos
“An increasing number of people around the world are suffering from ever more severe and frequent impacts of climate change, yet government action continues to lag behind what is needed.”
 
by Kenny Stancil
“The Federal Reserve’s role is not to surrender our planet to corporate polluters and shepherd our financial system to its destruction,” said Rep. Rashida Tlaib, among the Democrats urging the Fed to end fossil fuel financing.

 


 
by Brett Wilkins
“No equitable or just climate solutions can emerge from such an unjust process.”
 

And needless to say we urgently need to drastically cut the budget of the greatest consumer of oil and producer of CO2 on the planet — the US military budget and redirect such spending to healing the earth and building a more justi global community.

Preventing Climate Catastrophe & Nuclear War! Sept. 17, 2021 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Preventing Climate

Catastrophe

& Nuclear War!

The Two key issues of our time amid a global pandemic

v

 

 

Peace & Justice for all including Mother Earth!  Respect the Sacred!

     The planet is burning and the fires are becoming more widespread and intense. At the same time, storms and mass flooding are increasing. Climate change is moving toward Climate catastrophe at a rapid pace. On a positive note, the United Nations has taken action to officially declare nuclear weapons illegal under international law. But 9 Outlaw rogue states continue to possess nuclear weapons: The U.S. Russia, China, Great Britain, Israel, France, India, Pakistan, and North Korea. Many of these countries continue to build new nuclear weapons, including super-sonic missiles and first-strike weapons, increasing the risk of intentional or accidental nuclear war and global destruction. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists famous Doomsday clock is not set at 100 seconds to midnight.

     The younger generations are demanding action and rightfully so. Humanity has no time to waste, We need a massive shift in thinking and resources away from waging war and toward restoring right relationships with people and the planet. It is time for global Ho’oponopono – to make right. Profit and greed have been the driving forces toward destruction. The common good must become the new driving force for justice, peace, and the earth. The present global Covid pandemic is underscoring our need to move away from selfishness and to act for the common good. The US needs to lead by example. The $Trillion dollar annual US war budget must be redirected to preventing climate catastrophe and uplifting the least among us.  Learn from native people to respect the sacred!

     More than 50 US corporations, including Nike, and FedEx, paid no Federal income tax last year on more than $40 billion in profits. The existence of a space race between billionaires Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson is a clear message that these billionaires aren’t being taxed nearly enough. We live in a world where over 1 billion people don’t even have a pair of shoes or flip flops. The inequality between rich and poor, and the pollution of our planet are shameful and criminal.  What’s your priority?

Multinational Corporate Profits

or Mother Earth?

“The only way to prevent nuclear war is to stop building nuclear weapons.”

Admiral Noel Gayler, former CINCPAC Camp H.M. Smith, Oahu
