Pohakuloa is a Training Ground for Nuclear War!

Pohakuloa is a Training

Ground for Nuclear War!

     Our world needs more Aloha and Ho’oponopono, more diplomacy, negotiations, and training for peace, not training for Nuclear Armageddon and the end of civilization. According to the US Congressional Budget Office, the US is projected to spend an amount approaching 1 TRILLION DOLLARS over the next 10 years on nuclear weapons, while an increasing number of people (Hawaii included) can’t afford food, housing, and other basic human needs. https://www.cbo.gov/publication/59054

Depleted Uranium Nuclear Weapon spotting rounds have been fired at Pohakuloa. Deadly radiation alpha particles, and other deadly toxins, blow in the wind, dust, and smoke off Pohakuloa. B-52 and B-2 Strategic Nuclear bombers fly non-stop training missions from Louisiana, Missouri, and Guam to practice bombing at Pohakuloa. All branches of the US military conduct war training at Pohakuloa. This month 29 countries, including Israel, will be conducting war training in and around Hawaii, including bombing and shelling at Pohakuloa as part of RIMPAC 2024. What a waste of resources! Amid a growing climate crisis, Pohakuloa is located in the dry, windy high-risk fire center of Hawaii Island. It is a Lahaina firestorm in the making. The military acknowledges that since 1975, more than 890 wildfires have been started by military training at Pohakuloa. A fire started at Pohakuloa in August of 2022, one year before the Lahaina fire, burned more than 17,000 acres, including more than 12,000 acres off the base in endangered species habitat. Speak up Now! Cancel, don’t renew the State lease at Pohakuloa.  Add your voice to the message –


     A RIMPAC protest will be held on Saturday, July 20th from 10 AM till Noon on Hilo Bayfront near the King Kamehameha Statue.
