Signholding and Protest
Against LANPAC Military Conference
Wednesday, April 9, 4-6pm
at the corner of Kalakaua & Royal Hawaiian Avenue

The Association of the United States Army’s Institute of Land Warfare and the U.S. Army Pacific and U.S. Pacific Command are organizing LANPAC (Land & Power in the Pacific) at the Sheraton Waikiki from April 10-April 12.

Representatives from more than 30 countries have been invited, and speakers include generals from the U.S., Japan and Bangladesh. According to a spokesperson from the AUSA, “Participants will explore, in depth, the concept of strategic land power and the future of the Asia-Pacific theater with valuable perspectives from U.S. military and civilian leaders, industry leaders and service leaders from allied countries in this very important region of the world." The meeting will include an "industry exhibit." We expect that drone techniology will be front and center.

This will be a signholding (we have lots of anti-drone banners and signs) along Kalakaua Blvd. near the Sheraton entrance. Bring your own signs against drones, militarization, etc.

Sunday, April 6, 3pm
Film Showing: Wounds of Waziristan
Followed by Discussion
@ Revolution Books

Wounds of Waziristan is a 24 minute film that highlights the stories of those directly impacted by drone attacks in Pakistan–in their own words. After the film we will discuss the Spring Days of Action against Drone Warfare, Surveillance, and Global Militarization, including your suggestions for actions on O`ahu. This event is co-sponsored by by World Can't Wait-Hawai`i and Revolution Books.

We urge members from other groups and organizations to join us as we discuss the urgency of raising our voices against drones and ever-expanding global militarization.
