April 18, 2019 Pohakuloa Protest

Please Help Pass the Word.  Mahalo!

     On Thursday, April 18, 2019 the 133,000-acre military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) is hosting an “Experience Pohakuloa Day” event at the base from 9AM till 1PM. School children, parents and people from the community are being invited on base. It should be noted that Pohakuloa is a hazardous toxic waste dump from more than 75 years of live-fire training of weapons by the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. More than 14 million live-rounds are fired annually at Pohakuloa. Depleted Uranium (DU) radiation rounds have been used at PTA.

     Below is a short public service announcement with a link to a video by Dr. Lorrin Pang, MD, retired Army Medical Corps about the dangers of inhaling small particles of DU oxide that can be carried long distances by the winds.  Please share this PSA widely, especially with parents who have school children that may be considering a visit to Pohakuloa. Hope to see you in protest at Pohakuloa on Thursday, April 18th.

Please view the short video of Dr. Lorrin Pang, M.D., public health officer and retired Army Medical Corps explaining the health dangers of inhaling DU oxide dust particles (See https://vimeo.com/19153948).

Allowing children in your care to attend programs at Pohakuloa unnecessarily puts them at risk.
