By Staff of the Kauai Alliance on 28 July 2010 -  

Are you feeling secure? Has someone you know lost his or her job? Or home? Or gone hungry? Does she or he have the assurance of health care in a medical emergency?

Our 2nd congressional district Representative Mazie Hirono will share her Washington perspective on these and other manifestations of SECURITY at a public forum in Kapaa on Saturday, Aug 7.

 In times of high budget deficits, where should tax dollars be spent, or not spent, to provide security for Kauai's and America's citizens? Are the two wars and the military industry worth the cost?

Or should funds be reapplied to local sustainability? The Congresswoman will share the stage with a panel of four outspoken community leaders; Koohan Paik, writer and filmmaker, co-author of Superferry Chronicles and Kipukai Kuali`i, community and labor organizer.

Also Andrea Brower, Deputy Director at Malama Kauai, and Kyle Kajihiro, who is Program Director at American Friends Service Committee in Honolulu and who is outspoken in his views on the US military presence in the Pacific basin and in Hawaii.  

A conference on what strategy will lead to real security in this time of high unemployment and budget deficits. It is a free event.
