A Million Little Fists – January 16, 9:30am Hawaii State Capitol

Facebook message conversation with a friend a few months ago:

I am pissed with the current state of our government.

Gary Hooser
Then…what you gonna do about it?

Wave my little fist.

A million little fists waving in unison can have a huge impact. Keep it waving. When you get tired of waving, pound it against governments door. Pound it in the face of corporate greed and abuse. A million fists pounding on governments door and in the face of corporate greed and abuse can perhaps change the world.

***Please friend, join with me in waving our little fists together and sending a message that is loud and clear on January 16 at 9:30am at the State Capitol. It is opening day of the Hawaii State Legislature and the most important day of the year to send a message to all lawmakers.

Please, show up.

Show up to send a message that it is not ok to pass laws that take away the publics right to participate in the process.

Show up to send a message that the PLDC must be repealed, that environmental and public interest laws must be embraced, not circumvented.

Show up to support the labeling of GMO products and to show that this movement is real and is not going away.

Show up for Hawaii and for Hawaiians.
Bring the keiki and kupuna too. Call in sick. Skip class. Hitch-hike, car pool, ride the bus, scrape together the airfare if you are able but please show physically, if at all possible. Neighbor-islanders who are unable to fly over, please call and email your lawmakers in support at the same time. Email Senators at sens@capitol.hawaii.gov and Representatives at reps@capitol.hawaii.gov

No excuses please. We are all busy. We all have other jobs and other responsibilities.

This is important.


*For those that enjoy a nice morning stroll and do not want to hassle with parking. There will also be a contingent marching from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, departing UH at 8:30am and walking down Beretania Street.

    PPA – Peoples Pono Alliance Invites you to Support:
    This Ordinance by Initiative Power as a Common Sense Catalyst for positive change.

    About Ordinance via Initiative Power:
    Since 1982, voters have been able to propose and adopt ordinances through initiative power. This power, however, does not extend to any ordinance authorizing or repealing the levy of taxes, the appropriation of money, the issuance of bonds, the salaries of county employees or officers, or any matter governed by collective bargaining contracts. Any proposed ordinance approved by the majority of voters voting on the matter shall be adopted, and becomes effective 10 days after certification of the results of the election, or at the time and under the conditions specified in the ordinance. An ordinance adopted by initiative power is not subject to a veto by the Mayor. (Sec. 3-401.2 RCH)

    General Statute 153A-121 provides the legislative authority for counties’ general ordinance-making power. It states that counties may pass ordinances to define and regulate conduct which is detrimental to the public health, safety, welfare or peace.

    YOU / EVERYONE IS INVITED TO take the lead / initiative and share this “Cause” with your Ohana and Associates.

    MAKE A DIFFERENCE…Please sign this petition showing your support. This petition is important and if enough citizens sign the petition, then WE WILL BE a Common Sense Catalyst for positive change.

    Aloha…its Kauai’s Spirit!
