Victory for Now!
-We got the UH to agree to release all documentation regarding the institutionalization of the military at our university.
-We found out that the university was trying to sign a UARC contract in June behind our back, but we forced them to put in writing that they wouldn't sign any contract until after they take it to the Board of Regents, and we made them agree not to go to the BOR until after October 1.
-One of the things we didn't get them to agree to was to revoke the Board of Regents provisional approval of the UARC that they gave last November, even though Interim President David McClain admitted in front of all the TV cameras that it was his fault for bringing the UARC to the BOR prematurely. This just shows us how ready the administration is to honestly work with us, if they won't even right the wrongs they have done to the community faculty and students of UH (it's also why we remain very skeptical, and ready to return to Bachman hall if we need to.
Please look to our closing press releases to see more specifically the victories we have won. Also in our press release we gave shout outs to all you wonderful people from all across the world who have lifted our spirits when we were in there. For all of you who have kept up with this issue please email ideas for ways we can begin to network.
This has been the experience of a lifetime, but our job is just beginning. The presence of the military in Hawaii is suffocating, and I cannot even begin to explain the maginitude of the victories we have just one. We have set a precedent for change that will continue tp grow in the hearts of the faculty, students, and community members of Hawaii. Make no mistake, Hawaii faces the encroachment of the United States military more than any other state in the nation. Over 25 percent of the island of Oahu is occupied by the military. We already have an entire Striker Brigade that is coming to the Hawaiian islands, which will sieize another 250,000 acres of the big island (island of Hawaii) and now they are trying to station another aircraft carrier at Pearl Harbor. The UARC is the leg of this military encroachment which is trying to militarize the educational institutions of the Hawaiian islands. If this happens I dare say what the future inventions, ideas, technologies and leaders that come out of our university will do to harm the well being and progress of humanity toward a more peaceful state of being.
We need to network! The very core of this movement has been the concept of onesness, togetherness, unity, they are all similar words for describing our membership in a global movement called humanity. True globalization is not this phony economic justification for the destruction of environmental sanctions and support of state terrorism. Our type of globalization is using technology to link us all into a tighter unity, where those on the other side of the world can aid in the struggle of people's such as the Hawaiian people to overcome the system that threatens their culture. We have demonstrated the beginning of this higher state of Humanity with the occupation of our University's presidential office.
Let's begin to design a system that can fire like the synapses of a human brain when any of our fellow brethren need help anywhere in the world. Let's begin to weave a better world, through our ability to communicate, and our ability to breath our souls into everything that we do.
I've never done anything like this blog so I'm pretty excited about it. unfortunately I have to get off the computer so my roomate can use it. In the meantime... it feels good to be home for the first time in six days. I'll write again later on and try to explain more about our the situation as it develops. Stay with us everyone. We love you and we need you.
Thanxs and Peace,
