[BONUS EP#2] Canceling RIMPAC with a Dash of COVID-19
Kawena, a Kanaka Maoli activist with the Cancel RIMPAC Coalition shares an update on how that effort is going for 2020, how militarization of the Pacific is going, and mentions ways to support Kanaka Maoli in their fight to cancel RIMPAC. Canceling RIMPAC is necessary to begin a peaceful COVID-free demilitarized Pacific. Alisi, a first-time contributor and Tongan superwoman then gives an update on her organizational efforts on how COVID-19 is affecting Pacific Islanders in the U.S. and gives food for thought on how our cultures can adapt to COVID.
