Peace with Justice: No More War!

 Ban the Bomb! 

Before the Bomb Destroys us all!

      Genius Albert Einstein warned in 1946: “The unleashed power of the atom bomb has changed everything, except our modes of thinking, and thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.” US Navy Admiral Noel Gaylor, who was Commander in Chief Pacific (CINCPAC) based at Camp H.M. Smith on Oahu in the 1970s said: “The only defense against nuclear weapons is to stop building them.”

      Negotiations on a multilateral agreement to prohibit nuclear weapons will resume at the United Nations in New York from June 5 – July 7, 2017. A draft of the ban treaty was released on May 22. Hiroshima survivor Setsuko Thurlow (13- year old girl when Hiroshima was bombed on August 6, 1945) said “THIS TREATY WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.” Let’s hope so. Our world is in desperate need of positive change but we need to build a global people’s movement to make this happen. Speak up Now! Do not be silent! See

       Song writer Bob Dylan reminds us of war’s vested interests in his song “Masters of War.” “Come you masters of war. You that build all the guns. You that build the death planes. You that build all the bombs. You that hide behind walls. You that hide behind desks… Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find. When your death takes its toll. All the money you made. Will never buy back your soul… Even Jesus would never forgive what you do.”

“I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.”

  1. Robert Oppenheimer, American physicist, known as the “Father of the Atomic Bomb” was the scientific director of the Manhattan Project, the USA’s World War II program to develop the first nuclear weapons. This quote (“I am become death, the destroyer of worlds”) is often attributed to Oppenheimer on the occasion of the first successful nuclear test, the Trinity test in New Mexico in 1945, after which USA President Truman authorized the atomic bombings of the cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, killing well over 200,000 men, women and children. .

Also – Remember the USS Liberty!

      June 8th marks the 50th anniversary of Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty naval research ship in 1967, killing 34 Americans and wounding another 171 in the Mediterranean Sea near the Sinai Peninsula. Fifty years later the NSA keeps details of Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty secret. A wise person once said: “If you want to know who rules, know who you can’t criticize.” For more details on the USS Liberty Google USS Liberty and see

Why do so few Americans know about the USS Liberty?

  1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
    4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
    5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
