T-shirt now available ($5)

Jury selection in the trial of Christopher Deedy is set to begin next week (pending pre-trial motions, including Deedy's Motion to Dismiss). An article on the status of the motion to dismiss, as well as jury selection, is in today's Star-Advertiser.

World Can't Wait Hawai`i has silk-screened a "Justice for Kollin Elderts" T-shirt which is now available for $5 each (the cost of the materials). The T-shirt is white with black lettering and photo. Buy one for yourself, your family, and your friends. Shirts are available in S, M, Lg, and XLg, (We had XXL but they're already gone and we'll be printing more within the next couple of weeks.   You can currently buy them at Revolution Books (all proceeds to World Can't Wait-Hawai`i to cover the cost of producing the shirt).   

 There's a quantity discount (10 shirts = $45).   If you would like us to mail you 10 shirts the cost will be $50.   Send a check for $50 to World Can't Wait-Hawaii, P.O. Box 11225, Honolulu, HI  96828   If you have any questions e-mail us at

Many people have forgotten that Deedy's previous trial for the murder of Kollin Elderts ended in a hung jury and is being re-tried.  Wearing this shirt is a way you can initiate conversation with people about what's happening, and why they need to demand justice for Kollin Elderts.

As more information is available we'll send info about the re-trial and planned actions.   If you aren't already on the World Can't Wait-Hawaii e-list, send us an e-mail asking us to add your name.

Join the World Can't Wait Contingent
in the 2014 Honolulu Pride Parade
Saturday, June 7
Meet at Magic Island by 9:30 am
(look for our blue world flag)

Chelsea Manning (born Bradley Manning), is a U.S. Army soldier and whistleblower who leaked documents to Wikileaks in 2010. The documents exposed the crimes of the U.S. Government in Iraq to millions. Chelsea is a whistleblower, whose courageous actions inspired people around the world.

Chelsea was arrested, held in solitary confinement,and then sentenced in August 2013 to 35 years in prison for telling the truth about U.S. crimes. Soon after that Manning announced that she was a trans woman.    This year Chelsea Manning was chosen as the Honorary Grand Marshal of the San Francisco Pride Parade - the largest pride parade in the world. Last year the Chelsea Manning contingent in the SF parade numbered 1,500! This year there will be Support Chelsea Manning contingents in Pride parades around the world. Our contingent will honor Chelsea Manning for her courage: There is no pride in killing people in other countries!     

 Join World Can't Wait-Hawai`i's contingent in Hawai`i's Pride Parade on Saturday. We'll have a truck decorated with signs supporting Chelsea. Our lead banner will read "Humanity and the Planet Come First." You can walk, ride on our truck, or bring your bicycle, scooter or skateboard. Bring your own signs speaking out against justice of any kind - or pick up one of ours. The parade will leave Magic Island at 10am before marching to Kapiolani Park via Kalakaua.   

 Thousands of people participate in Honolulu's Pride Parade, and thousands more line the street. Make your voices heard!       We'll have water on the truck; bring your own sunscreen. The truck will be returning to Magic Island immediately after the parade so you can get a ride back to the park if you like. There will be a Pride Festival at Kapiolani Park from 11am-4pm.
