We are organizing a peaceful demonstration of protest. We the positive re-action along with other soverign groups will be coming together to take a stand. We will be excercising our right to say enough is enough. The health center is our place that provides us and continues to service and meet our needs. We have been in discussion with them to release a portion of land that they do not need but chooses to excercise the authority of power to keep us oppressed and seperate us from the land of our inherent birth right. The choice to continue to flaunt it and continually push their military authority is a misuse of their authority antagonizes the whole situation. Which instigates a reaction. Join us in an effort to take a stand and say not in waimanalo and not at the waimanalo health center. We will be in front on Kalanianaole Hwy across from Bellow Air Force Base to hold signs and let them know we do not agree and there is something wrong in their decision. We will be parking on mauka side in Bellows and using Tinker Road as a cross walk to hold signs. We will be there from 9:00 am- 1:00pm. Bring chair, water and your message. I can be reached at 954-7124.

All Staff –

Just want you to know that a contractor from the military posted 2 “No Trespassing” signs behind our clinic- see attached photos. Please leave the signs as is; please do not deface it; do not remove it, etc. But, please feel free to continue to walk/work in our Garden.

I will be contacting the military PR liaison Major Crouch, w/ cc to our Board of Directors, our Waimanalo Neighborhood Board Chair Kekoa Ho, Representative Chris Lee, etc. to find out what is going on. I’ll get back to you all when I get more info. Mahalo for your cooperation.
