Event Description

This is a non-violent demonstration.

IN SOLIDARITY WITH MILLIONS AGAINST MONSANTO, OCCUPY MONSANTO AND MONSANTO PROTESTORS WORLDWIDE -- MEET AT STARBUCKS IN KUNIA - WE WILL PROCEED TO MONSANTO ENTRANCE ON KUNIA ROAD 3:00 PM 

BRING PROTECTIVE MASKS, SIGNS & CAMERAS - WE ARE GOING TO THE MAIN SITE OF THEIR CHEMICAL AND GMO FIELD TRIALS IN HAWAII SO COVER YOURSELF !!! REMEMBER GMO USE MEANS ALSO HEAVY PESTICIDE USE, EITHER FROM HIGH DOSES OF HERBICIDE OR ENGINEERED INTO THE PLANT ITSELF, YOU DO NOT WANT TO BREATHE NEAR THEIR FIELDS DUE TO PESTICIDE DRIFT AND DUST ESPECIALLY, YET THEY DO THIS ACROSS FROM RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOODS. HARDWARE STORES SHOULD HAVE BREATHING MASKS. PLEASE WEAR. 

PLEASE ALSO BRING CAMERAS TO DOCUMENT, SIGNS TO WAVE DURING RUSH TRAFFIC AND DRUMS SO MONSANTO KNOWS WE ARE THERE AND WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY!!!

Following a sign waving event on Maui last week, Oahu will hold its own protest against Monsanto in Kunia on Thursday, June 28 at 3:00 pm. Please meet at Starbucks in Kunia and bring masks, signs and banners and we need a photographers too. It's time to wake people up about the devastation that is going on in our backyards that our lawmakers tacitly condone through their acceptance of campaign contributions from biotech lobbyists. Please RSVP so we have an idea of how many are coming. We want to make a striking impression and need the numbers of concerned citizens to show up!

There is some room for a protest alongside Kunia road at the entrance to the Monsanto compound. I recommend two hours say 3:00 to 5:00 to get as many drivers on Kunia Road as possible. Hundreds drive by there every day thinking it is a nice farm and have no idea what it really is. A sign wave on Kunia would help raise awareness to Monsanto, GMO and pesticide use. ***EVERYONE BRING SIGNS, MASKS TO PROTECT YOU FROM GMO SPORES AND CHEMICALS. BRING CAMERAS TO DOCUMENT AND DRUMS TO CALL EVERY GOOD PERSON'S ANCESTORS AND MAKE SOME REAL NOISE!!!***

Community Funds & Action!

          REMEMBERING CHINATOWN

From its earliest grantmaking, in 1972-3 into the 1990s, Hawaii People’s Fund supported community organizing in Honolulu’s Chinatown. The critical grassroots groups were Third Arm and People Against Chinatown Evictions (PACE).

 

Several continuous Hawaii People’s Fund constituents were part of these groups and one asked if we might help preserve more of the stories from this important period of strategic activism,

 

Hawaii People’s Fund worked with a UH student-intern in the spring/summer of 2016. Sonja Cookman put this article together. She met with about a dozen organizers from those days. She also scanned a number of original documents, organizational newsletters and media coverage. Hawaii People’s Fund was able to digitize a couple hundred old slides.

 

The original activists plan to come together to archive more of their memories. Hawaii People’s Fund hopes this article, the first source documents, and the ongoing work of the surviving organizers will help preserve the history and serve to inspire and inform continued struggles against evictions and gentrification and activism for access to health care, housing and dignity for all.
