Feb. 15th Organizing meeting for Feb. 24th Pohakuloa protest

Aloha Peace ohana,
Thee will be a special organizing meeting on Monday, Feb. 15th 7-9PM at the Keaau Community Center to plan for a Wed. Feb. 24th protest of a military PR event for politicians at the Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA).
The tentative plan is to picket the main gate of PTA from 8:30-l0:30AM (event starts at 9AM).  car pools to leave Hilo at 7:30AM from the bayfront parking lot on the makai/Hamakua side of the Pauahi/Kamehameha intersection.
We got two tips of the military public relations event to woo politicians and business leaders to military build up plans.  Our call is for Military CLEAN UP Not Build Up, especially with DU radiation contamination confirmed at PTA.  There should be a complete stop to all live-fire and other activities that create dust which risks spreading the contamination.  An increasing call is being made to “CANCEL THE LEASE” and executive orders at PTA.  Also in light of recent news about a new military JHSV Superferry
we may want to add the demand “No son of Superferry” to our list.

Join us to put pressure on the military and our local politicians.  We need to do some creative planning to build a peoples movement.
for Malu ‘Aina
