CITIZEN ACTION DEMANDS
1. Immediate halt to all live-fire and any activity that creates dust at Schofield
Barracks, Pohakuloa and other military ranges in Hawaii until there is a
complete assessment and clean up of the DU present. Further live-fire and
other activities could result in the spread of airborne DU particles which are
particularly hazardous if inhaled.
2. Citizen monitors, including Dr. Lorrin Pang MD, former attorney, OHA
trustee, and nuclear worker Clarence Ku Ching, and Jim Albertini or some
other representative from the peace movement to be involved in the DU
assessment and monitoring process to assure transparency and community
3. The establishment of permanent, continuous, high tech counts per minute
(cpm) monitors (at the Army's expense) but independently operated
around range impact area where the real-time data is available to the public
4. Testing (at Army expense) for DU exposure of PTA and other military
personnel, and members of the civilian community who feel they may have
been exposed to DU. (The U.S. is spending $2 billion a day on the military.
There should be funds available to see if citizens are being contaminated by
its own radioactive weapons.)
5. Ongoing public balanced informational and Q & A meetings involving the
Army, State Dept. of Health, Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the
Center for Disease Control (CDC), Dr. Lorrin Pang and other
community resource people.
