> Aloha,
> On Thursday morning, Sept. 27 at 9:30 the Board of Regents will be
> coming to UH Hilo to vote on whether or not it will approve the $50
> million ARL/UARC proposal (http://www.hawaii.edu/arl/).
> There have been numerous groups in opposition to this program for
> the past two years including faculty senates, student governments,
> community organizations, and several other experts and individuals. The
> students at UH Manoa strongly opposed UARC because of the implications
> of weapon-related, classified military research. They succeeded in
> stopping the approval of ARL/UARC at Manoa but now the rest of the UH
> system is threatened. Unfortunately many of those students who voiced
> their concerns have graduated and now the Board of Regents has once
> again put this proposal on the table.
> Lets show them that the students of the University of Hawaii
> maintain our feelings that UARC is unethical, amoral, and contradictory
> to the UH mission to provide an internationally friendly institution.
> The UH motto states "ABOVE ALL NATIONS IS HUMANITY". ARL approval would
> project a different message to the international community.
> Come help maintain the humanistic goals of our University and the
> need to promote diplomacy rather than military might in the world by
> voicing your concerns on Thursday. Many of the groups in opposition to
> ARL will be organizing at 9:00am in front of UCB 127 (the glass
> conference room aka the "fish bowl"), and we urge you to come give your
> support. If you have any questions reply to jlw2@hawaii.edu.
