Christmas Gathering to stand for peace at Pohakuloa Main Gate

Christmas Day!

Stop Bombing Pohakuloa

Main Gate 10AM – Noon

     The US Military, at multiple sites, including the 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Toxic Area (PTA), has been contaminating the air, land, and water of Hawaii Island for more than 75 years. Millions of live-rounds have been fired annually at PTA involving a wide range of weapons and toxins, including radioactive Depleted Uranium (DU) oxide particles that can be carried long distances in the wind. What toxins are in the 2 water wells drilled at PTA in 2013 that are still not being used in 2021. The military spends nearly $2 million annually hauling water to PTA.

      Everyone on the Big Island is downhill and downwind from PTA, which is located in the center of the island at 6500 feet elevation. The land, water, air, people, plants and animals surrounding PTA, including the thousands of troops who train there, are all part of a Military Sacrifice Zone. Actually the Hawaiian islands are one of the most militarized places on the planet with more than 100 active US military installations and many more abandoned military toxic sites.

     If you practice for war, you are preparing for war, not peace! It’s time to practice for peace and prepare for peace if the human species wants to survive.  Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawaii and around the world.  It’s time to de-militarize Hawaii and end the illegal U.S. occupation of Hawaii too.

Join us on Christmas!  Wear a Mask!  Bring a sign!   Stand for Peace!
