Strategy Meeting to Protect Pohakuloa Monday Oct. 17, 2016 at 6PM in Kea’au

Aloha kakou,

There will be a strategy meeting to Protect Pohakuloa on Monday, Oct. 17, 2016 from 6 PM at the Kea’au Community center located behind the Police Station and bay Clinic in Kea’au.

Among the topics to be discussed are evaluation and follow up to the Sept. 30th meeting at Pohakuloa which the military was required to hold under the national Historic Preservation Act for routine actions at PTA

Below is list of concerns raised at out last meeting Sept. 19th with priority items starred.  We will need to follow up on these and any other new concerns. Also Carol Miller has requested an opportunity for a few minutes to raise the issue of the growing danger of nuclear war and how raising the issue and doing community education on it can help broaden our base.

Please pass the word to others about the 10/17 meeting

Some things to think about:

1.  county action –follow up to Res 639-08

2.  State action? Dept of Health? Environmental Health Office on Kamehameha Ave.

3.  Fed action?  Comprehensive archeological survey,  EIS on cumulative impacts

***4.  legal review of Kaho’olawe court cases to see what applies

5.  Cultural access to sites at PTA — ahu, etc. Makahiki season coming up.  Trails…

***6.  Upcoming 9/30 meeting  at PTA  on programmatic agreement

7.  ongoing lawsuit by Ku Ching and Maxine Kahaulelio at PTA

8.  Military  Impacts to water well and aquifers

***9.  Independent radiological survey.

***10. Tour and briefing at PTA like Chamber of Commerce got.

11.  Contact Curtis Tyler and others on Pohakuloa Advisory Council

12.  Non-violent direct action focus  — convoys, etc.

13.  National legal suit on all areas where DU training has occurred (At least 15 other states)

14. Organization allies

15. Concerts, etc. to educate and mobilize –festival

16. Clean up Costs  (Kaho’olawe,incremental clean up like Waikoloa Maneuver Area

***17. State lease renewal being negotiated

***18. Leverage of the tourist industry –radiation monitoring at airports, hotels, on key beaches, etc.

other ideas welcome –PYA dump site, burn pit, incinerator, military base conversion examples that Congressman Ron Dellums helped with

New PTA comprehensive leaflet for education., phone tree network, media –do new documentary film on PTA, get wider visibility of “Pohakuloa –Now that you know do you care 14 min. OHA produced video
