Board of Ethics Hearing
Friday, February 28th 2020 ~10am
Puna Conference Room
25 Aupuni Street
Hilo, Hawaii

The Hawaii County Board of Ethics has elected to draft a resolution to conduct an investigation into the lack of enforcement of state and county laws regarding the removal of protectors from the Mauna Kea access road. At the meeting on Friday they will continue to discuss their proposed resolution.

The ethics commission needs to hear from all of us and they need to be set straight on the State and County’s unethical and immoral actions. Don’t let Governor Ige and his administration use our County Ethics Commission’s resolution as part of a coordinated effort to remove protectors from the Mauna.

Free Julian Assange!

The WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, an Australian citizen, faces extradition to the US from the UK and 175 years behind bars for exposing U.S. War Crimes.


Over 1,000 journalists from across the world unite in defense of Julian Assange #JournalistsSpeakUpForAssange Facebook page @SpeakUpForAssange

      The Human Rights Organization, Amnesty International, criticized what it called a “full-scale assault on the right to freedom of expression” by the United States and demanded the country drop its Espionage Charges against and extradition request of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

      Assange has been in the high security Belmarsh prison in London since April 2019 after being forcibly removed from the Ecuadoran embassy where he’d been effectively trapped since 2012.  The WikiLeaks founder faces up to 175 years in prison for 18 counts of violating the Espionage Act—charges journalists and press freedom defenders said represent a dangerous assault on press freedom by attacking Assange for publishing and exposing U.S. war crimes. The public has a right to know what their government is up to.

     Doctors and a United Nations expert have warned that Assange is being held under conditions that threaten his very life. Julian Assange, and whistleblowers Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden are heroes, not criminals. The UK is conducting a hearing this week to determine whether to grant Trump’s request to extradite Julian Assange to the US for trial.
