Feb. 5, 2021 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet on Principles of Nonviolence

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2021

Aloha friends,

I could use help setting up all the banners and signs at the weekly Hilo Peace Vigil. The vigil is 3:30-5PM and I’m usually there before 3 to begin set up. I could also use help passing out the weekly leaflet. I handle the traffic on Kinoole St.and Waianuenue Ave. intersection. Danny Li helps with the traffic coming up Waianuenue but he doesn’t get to the vigil till around 4:30. We could also use 1 or two people for the foot traffic going to the Post office from Kinoole side and Waianuenue side. There are usually people waiting in lines at the PO so time to read the leaflet.

Mahalo for your solidarity.

Nuclear Abolition & the End

to War!

In 1945, on learning about the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Mahatma Gandhi said that “Unless now the world adopts nonviolence, it will spell certain suicide for mankind”. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. expressed similar thoughts in the 1960s. “The choice is not between violence and nonviolence but between nonviolence and nonexistence.”

Last week the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists re-affirmed this point by re-setting the Doomsday Clock to 100 Seconds to Midnight, indicating the continuing threat to humanity from nuclear weapons, as well as the existential risk of climate change and the disturbing trends in politics away from truth, and fostering division and hate.
