Preventing Climate Catastrophe & Nuclear War! Sept. 17, 2021 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Preventing Climate


& Nuclear War!

The Two key issues of our time amid a global pandemic




Peace & Justice for all including Mother Earth!  Respect the Sacred!

     The planet is burning and the fires are becoming more widespread and intense. At the same time, storms and mass flooding are increasing. Climate change is moving toward Climate catastrophe at a rapid pace. On a positive note, the United Nations has taken action to officially declare nuclear weapons illegal under international law. But 9 Outlaw rogue states continue to possess nuclear weapons: The U.S. Russia, China, Great Britain, Israel, France, India, Pakistan, and North Korea. Many of these countries continue to build new nuclear weapons, including super-sonic missiles and first-strike weapons, increasing the risk of intentional or accidental nuclear war and global destruction. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists famous Doomsday clock is not set at 100 seconds to midnight.

     The younger generations are demanding action and rightfully so. Humanity has no time to waste, We need a massive shift in thinking and resources away from waging war and toward restoring right relationships with people and the planet. It is time for global Ho’oponopono – to make right. Profit and greed have been the driving forces toward destruction. The common good must become the new driving force for justice, peace, and the earth. The present global Covid pandemic is underscoring our need to move away from selfishness and to act for the common good. The US needs to lead by example. The $Trillion dollar annual US war budget must be redirected to preventing climate catastrophe and uplifting the least among us.  Learn from native people to respect the sacred!

     More than 50 US corporations, including Nike, and FedEx, paid no Federal income tax last year on more than $40 billion in profits. The existence of a space race between billionaires Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson is a clear message that these billionaires aren’t being taxed nearly enough. We live in a world where over 1 billion people don’t even have a pair of shoes or flip flops. The inequality between rich and poor, and the pollution of our planet are shameful and criminal.  What’s your priority?

Multinational Corporate Profits

or Mother Earth?
