Jan. 30, 2009 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet (BIP)

A Call to Action at Pohakuloa
Aloha 'Aina


     Justice & Peace Makers Unite!  On Saturday, January 3l, 2009 there will be a spiritual ceremony of healing for the 'aina and peaceful protest of the U.S. military bombing, contamination, desecration of the aina at the l33,000-acre military Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) in the center of Hawaii Island.   PTA and the military's disregard of community concerns are symbols of the continuing U.S. occupation of the Hawai'i Kingdom.  Justice demands an end to this occupation.

     Meet l0 AM at Mauna Kea Park -- located l mile Hilo side of PTA.  Car pools will be leaving Hilo at 9AM from the makai parking lot closest to the intersection of Pauahi St. & Kamehameha Ave. (There will be Sign holding in Hilo 8 - 9A.M prior to leaving for the mountain.)   Let us come together from north, south, east and west Hawai'i in common purpose and stand united.

Background

     The Francis Newland Resolution of 1898 is the basis for the U.S. piracy of Crown and Government lands of Hawai'i to the U.S. by the pirate “Republic of Hawai‘i".  However, the U.S. refused to recognize the so-called “Republic of Hawai'i” following the U.S. invasion of the Hawai'i Kingdom in 1893; attempted treaties of annexation failed; and neither U.S. nor international law allows annexation of a Kingdom to a Republic.

    The Hawaii County Council passed resolution, 639-08, on July 2, 2008 over radiation contamination at Pohakuloa.  The resolution calls for 8 protective measures, including a halt to live-fire, a full assessment and cleanup of the DU present at Pohakuloa, citizen monitoring system, public meetings, reports, etc.  To date the military has not responded positively to any of the 8 points called for by the Hawaii County Council.  The military is  stonewalling.  The military is endangering its own troops and the people of Hawai'i by refusing to halt live-fire and clean-up its harmful and long-lasting radiation contamination.


Stop the Bombing -- End U.S. Occupation
And Clean-Up Your Opala!
