Join the Pohakuloa Picket

Protest Democracy by Invitation Only!

Wednesday, Feb. 24th

8:30AM Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA)

Main Gate on Saddle Road

(Car pools leave Hilo bayfront parking lot makai/Hamakua side of Pauahi St. Kamehameha Ave. intersection at 7:30 sharp.  The picket at PTA is expected to last till 10:30)

The Military meeting 9-2 at Pohakuloa is only open to hand-picked officials and special interests.
(The doors are closed to the public, Peace groups, Kanaka Maoli organizations, environmental groups, community associations, etc.)

* What’s the Army afraid of?

* Is it citizen participation in government?

* Is it because we might object to more military land grabs on Hawaii Island, continued live-fire amid DU radiation contamination at PTA, new fast-track military superferry plans?

* Why hasn’t the Army stopped all live-fire, B-2 bombing missions and other activities that create dust until there is a complete assessment and clean-up of the DU already present as called for in County of Hawaii resolution 639-08? The NRC has not signed off on radiation at PTA.

* When will all of the 50-plus present and former military sites, totaling more than 250,000-acres on Hawaii Island, be cleared of unexploded ordnance, toxins, and other hazards?

* Thousands of acres of past and present militaery sites, Stryker land grab, Hilo National Guard rebuild, University military research, armed “Superferry”/Joint High Speed Vessel—what’s next?

We Demand Military Clean-up NOT Build-up!
Stop the Wars!  Fund Human needs!
End all occupations, including the ongoing illegal occupation of the
independent nation of Hawaii.
