Call to Action!!! Three ways to Protect Pōhakuloa! 

1.) Please share and ADD a photo of yourself and your loved ones with the same messages as below!
  Urge young people and off island Lahui to make their own signs and  post  with their photos on social media!!  When you post add the  hashtags
#protectpohakuloa #PTAShutdown #protectourkeiki #seeyouonthemauna

2.) Thurs, April 18, 2019 Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA).   Main Gate 9AM-1PM
  Protest “Experience PTA Day” events where the military has invited   school children to attend, despite KNOWN HEALTH RISKS.  We encourage   young folks, those who are hapai, or in ill health to post photos, make   calls and raise awareness and not risk their health at the 4/18 PTA  Gate  Protest.
 (Car pools 8AM from Hilo @Komohana & Saddle) 

 3.  Contact the DOE and tell them to stop sanctioning students to go to   Pōhakuloa! If you have Keiki on Moku on Keawe, please call their school   today and ask if they are sponsoring a trip to “Experience Pōhakuloa”  on  April 18th. Even if your keiki didn’t bring home a permission slip,   another class could be going. Please read the shared post for talking   points on why their school schools not be going. 

AT  THE VERY  LEAST, all school permission slips need to include that their  children  will be exposed to Depleted Uranium Oxide, known to cause  cancer and a  link explaining the health dangers (link below). Most  parents just  aren’t aware, and schools have a responsibility provide  this crucial  information, otherwise they are complicit in risking  children’s lives.

 Please  view the short video of Dr. Lorrin Pang, M.D., public health  officer  and retired Army Medical Corps explaining the health dangers of   inhaling DU oxide dust particles

 On  Thursday, April 18, 2019 the 133,000-acre military Pohakuloa  Training  Area (PTA) is hosting an “Experience Pohakuloa Day” event at  the base  from 9AM till 1PM. School children, parents and people from the   community are being invited on base. It should be noted that Pohakuloa   is a hazardous toxic waste dump from more than 75 years of live-fire   training of weapons by the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. More than   14 million live-rounds are fired annually at Pohakuloa. Depleted  Uranium  (DU) radiation rounds have been used at PTA.

Please  view the  short video of Dr. Lorrin Pang, M.D., public health officer  and retired  Army Medical Corps explaining the health dangers of  inhaling DU oxide  dust particles

Allowing children in your care to attend programs at Pohakuloa unnecessarily puts them at risk.
