What kind of “Peace” does Hawaii County Mayor Mitch Roth believe in?

Napua Burke and Jim Albertini at Hilo Peace Pole on Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022 during the County sponsored “Peace Walk.”

Hawaii County Mayor Mitch Roth refused an invitation to join in a photo at the Mo’oheau Bandstand Peace Pole with our banner “Stop Bombing Pohakuloa.”

He recently expressed his support on Hawaii News Now 9/16 for renewing the lease of 23,000 acres of Hawaiian crown and government lands to the military at Pohakuloa, saying the military takes care of the environment.  See https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/video/2022/09/16/mahalo-tour-hawaii-county-mayor-mitch-roth/ <https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/video/2022/09/16/mahalo-tour-hawaii-county-mayor-mitch-roth/>

The current lease totaling $1 for 65 years will be expiring in 2029.

What kind of Peace does Mitch believe in?   So-called “Peace” that continues Bombing and training for nuclear war at Pohakuloa is NO Peace in my view.
