WAYS TO KŌKUA
Shut Down Red Hill
In January 2014, the U.S. Navy reported a 27,000 gallon leak of jet fuel from Tank 5 at its Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility. The Navy owns twenty fuel tanks in the Red Hill area, each able to contain up to 12.5 million gallons of fuel. These tanks are located 100 feet above the groundwater aquifer. 100 feet is the height of the State Capitol. This aquifer is also the same one that the local board of water supply uses to provide water to residents in Honolulu, where hundreds of thousands of people reside.
On December 11, 2020 at the Board of Land and Natural Resources meeting the Division of Forestry and Wildlife submitted a request for approval to apply as a co-applicant to the County of Hawaii Planning Department together with Surety Kohala Corporation and KP Holdings LLC to submit a PCRS application for a 13-lot subdivision along the ridge at Pololū Valley. A request for approval to enter into a Letter of Intent with Surety Kohala Corporation and KP Holdings LLC was also submitted to donate land to the State of Hawaii.
Wailuanui, the land where the former Coco Palms Hotel once stood, is a wahi kapu, or sacred site, to Native Hawaiians and Kaua‘i residents. We strongly oppose the development of any hotel on this site and aim to develop a plan and partnership to turn this place into a vibrant and abundant place of education, healing, culture and conservation.
Mauna Kea Petition
We, the global community of Mauna Kea supporters are demanding the immediate halt to the construction of the TMT, 30 Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea, Island of Hawaiʻi. The TMT will cause harm to the mountain and destroy a sacred place for Kanaka Maoli’s spiritual and cultural practices. We oppose any construction made on sacred land without the free, prior and informed consent of Kanaka Maoli.
Stop the selling of Kuleana Land on Molokaʻi
There are thousands of acres of land on the island of Molokaʻi that is being unjustly sold and developed. 1,000+ of these acres are in Mapulehu Valley where over 28 signatures to the land holdings “dissapeared.” Molokaʻi Land Trust is now attempting to purchase the land for agricultural and conservational use, while claiming that they will “try their best” to allow people with titles to “connect” with their land.
STOP RIM PAC
CANCEL RIMPAC, the international Rim of the Pacific naval war practice in Hawaiian waters originally scheduled from June through August 2020 but due to citizen activism and COVID19 is now scaled back to the middle to the end of August. Even this shortened war practice is provocative on a regional level and with the COVID19 virus, military personnel arriving in Hawaii will endanger citizens of the isolated island state of Hawaii. RIMPAC MUST BE CANCELLED!
Puʻuhonua O Waiʻanae
The 250 residents of the largest and oldest houseless community on Oʻahu are going to be able to buy 20 acres of private land in Waiʻanae. For the past 12 years, Puʻuhonua O Waiʻanae has provided transitional and permanent shelter for hundreds of people who have found themselves without a roof over their heads. Now, it's time for Phase 2: raising funds for infrastructure like roads, and building communal structures like the Hale Noa, bathrooms and community kitchen.
