Aloha 'Āina Unity March

An EAducation : Ea is life, land, breath, rise up

This coming Sunday on O`ahu, hui (groups) from across the state will gather and march in a processional from the intersection starting at 10am at Saratoga Road and Kalākaua Ave, ending at Kapiolani Park. The march will proceed to Kapi`olani Park, where a rally will be held to inform and EAducate everyone on the issues impacting the management, administration and use of our `āina (land) and natural resources. 

From the global attention focused on cultural and traditional issues regarding the Mauna a Wākea and TMT issue, Haleakalā, Ho`opili, Hualālai and Pohakuloa; through the pesticide and agricultural sustainability issues plaguing Kaua`i , Hawai`i and Maui counties, it is evident that its time for us to hui pū (gather together) and share what we know, what we can do and where weʻd like to go from here.

Groups like Ku Kia`i Mauna, Kāko`o Haleakalā, H.A.P.A, KAHEA, Hawai`i Center for Food Safety, Hui o Kuapā, Sierra Club of Hawai`i, The MOM Hui, Protect Mauna Kea, and MANY MORE are supporting this massive event. The Kū`ē Petition will be available to sign for descendants and supporters.
