Protest

RIMPAC 2024!

29 countries including Israel!

RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific) is the worldʻs largest international maritime exercise, held biannually since the early 1970s. Approximately 29 nations, 40 surface ships, 3 submarines, 14 national land forces, over 150 aircraft, and more than 25,000 personnel will participate in the RIMPAC 2024 exercise scheduled from June 26 to Aug. 2, in and around the Hawaiian Islands. bigislandnow.com

RIMPAC usually involves the sinking of ships (and harm to marine life) by bombing and shelling in Hawaiian waters, onshore military beach assault landings, bombing, shelling, and troop training at the Pohakuloa Training Area on Hawaii Island and possibly other areas, as well as human trafficking with military troops entering tourist areas.
