Prominent Peace Leaders Visit Hawai‘i

Events Planned on O‘ahu and Kaua‘i


An international panel of activists and scholars from the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space  will travel to O’ahu and Kaua’i from February 18-21 to discuss the local, regional and global ramifications of the U.S. missile defense programs and expanding U.S. militarism in the Asia-Pacific region. The talks will highlight the resistance against U.S. military bases in Hawai’i, Okinawa, Korea and the UK and the far-reaching implications of the militarization of space.

Several public events are planned. DOWNLOAD EVENT POSTERS

Speakers will include: Bruce Gagnon, Dave Webb, Lynda Williams. (See biographical sketches above).  Koohan Paik will moderate.  The Kaua‘i event is sponsored by the Kaua‘i Alliance for Peace and Social Justice.

“From Vandenberg, California to Kwajalein Atoll, from Kaua’i to Jeju Island, from Okinawa to the UK, the U.S. global network of military bases and space-based weapons systems seeks to attain ‘full-spectrum dominance’ over the planet. But grassroots movements are resisting through dynamic local-global networks of solidarity. We are happy to host leaders of this growing international movement and we look forward to sharing their good work with the public,” said Kyle Kajihiro.

After Hawai‘i, the visiting Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space delegation will proceed to Jeju Island, South Korea, where the annual conference of the network will take place amidst intense protests against a proposed naval base.
