300th Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet June 15, 2007

300th Weekly Vigil/Leaflet Today!

    Today, June 15, 2007 marks the 300th consecutive weekly Hilo Peace Vigil held on Fridays from 3:30-5 PM fronting the Hilo Federal Building. We started these vigils on Sept. 12, 2001.  Each week for nearly six years a new leaflet has been prepared for distribution around the world via the Internet and offered freely on this street corner.  The five points at the bottom of each leaflet remain the same and underscore our basic concerns for justice and peace through non-violent action.  Besides the weekly vigil there is a lot of other peace work taking place.  We welcome your input and invite you to join us, even if you only have five minutes to spare.  Every effort for peace is important.  Mahalo.

The Neocon Threat to American Freedom by Paul Craig Roberts 

Wednesday June 13, 2007  Printed from: http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/june2007/130607Neocon.htm

     The neoconservatives have rewritten US war doctrine to permit preemptive US nuclear attack on non-nuclear countries. They have demonized Iran as the greatest threat since Hitler. Neoconservatives have invented "Islamofascism," something that exists only in the neoconservative propaganda used to instill in Americans hatred of Muslims. The neoconservatives have dehumanized Muslims as monsters who must be destroyed at all costs…

     Neoconservatives, convinced that a nuclear attack will bring Muslims to heel, are ignoring the likely blowback and unintended consequences of an attack on Iran, just as they ignored the likely consequences of their attack on Iraq…

     If Americans understood the enormity of the deception behind the invasion of Iraq (and Afghanistan) and the pending attack on Iran, Bush and Cheney would be impeached and turned over to the War Crimes Tribunal at The Hague…  Just as Goebbels said, some lies are too big to be disbelieved. It is this disbelief that is so dangerous...

     The neoconservatives also believe that a nuclear attack on Iran will isolate America in the world and, thereby, give the government control over the American people. The denunciations that will be hurled at Americans from every quarter will force the country to wrap itself in the flag and to treat domestic critics as foreign enemies. Not only free speech but also truth itself will disappear along with every civil liberty.

 Stop the War!  Not one more death! Not one more dollar! 

Bring the troops home now!  No War on Iran!

Impeach Bush & Cheney!

1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties. 4. Oppose all discrimination: anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, etc.

5. Seek peace through justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
