A delegation of Hawai‘i women is heading to Okinawa to link their efforts with other islanders impacted by U.S. military presence.   The International Women’s Network Against Militarism points to human and environmental costs of war and explores ways women can build more peaceful futures.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.

  Nonviolent action has resulted in political change in recent history:  in the American South, in Gandhi’s India, and in South Africa, just a few examples.  Now the self-described “protectors” of Mauna Kea and Haleakalā are rallying around a call for “Kapu Aloha”, a nonviolent mode of conduct that organizers say guides their movement.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.

“Active resistance through love, the consistency of that has been proven in many world conflict. Here is another one.”
