Military Special Ops Planned for Hawaii!, Jan. 11, 2019 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Military Special Ops Planned for Hawaii!

— water, land, and air-based training outside of military bases, in coastal nearshore waters, shorelines, and inland locations on non-federal lands throughout Hawaii involving Navy, Army, Marines, and Air Force! The training includes covert assassination missions but you won’t see that mentioned in the EA document.


hundreds of trainings in groups up to 46

lasting 4–96 hours each

      A Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to supposedly analyze the potential impacts of the Special Ops.  See it here Environmental Assessment Open for Public Review It made a Finding of No Significant Impacts (FONSI).  THE FINDING IS A LIE!  The deadline for public comments on the Draft EA was Jan. 7, 2019. This massive intrusion into our coastal nearshore waters, public shorelines and public spaces has lots of significant impacts – cultural, environmental, etc., including the expansion, normalization, and glorification of militarism and war in our communities.  Hawaii is already one of the most militarized places on the planet with more than 100 military installations.  The consequences of these installations along with more than 125 years of illegal US military occupation of Hawaii has been catastrophic. 

      US military Special Ops (that include drone and sniper assassinations) are desperate attempts on behalf of the US empire to maintain global domination for corporate interests.  This Military Madness needs to stop.  The US needs to learn Hawaiian Ho’oponopono, a process of healing, making right instead of waging war.  The US military needs to clean up the massive mess it has made in Hawaii — unexploded ordinance, chemical and nuclear contamination, etc. and then demilitarize Hawaii, pay reparations, end its illegal occupation and restore Hawaii as it was –an independent nation of military neutrality.

Stop the U.S. Killing Machine!

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.
