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

confidence.

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

on line.

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.
