The department of public safety issued a press release today (Nov. 21) that they have identified 11 sites for their BIG NEW OCCC.
THIS IS THE DAY BEFORE COMMENTS ARE DUE. I am stunned at how absolutely overt the state is being in its goal to silence the community voice. They didn’t find 11 sites and hatch this plan last night; they waited until the eleventh hour hoping no one would be able to comment.
Wow, is this the new norm? It seems they are laying down the gauntlet…ready to fight. This is a wake up call folks. Government run amok. What do we do? I’m writing comments and questions after I read it all tonight.
I love the Hawaiian word for what we must do: We must be MAKA`ALA – Alert, vigilant, watchful, wide-awake. They have shown that they will do anything to build their BIG NEW JAIL. What should we do? email me your thoughts and ideas.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nov. 21, 2016
EXTENSIVE SEARCH PRODUCES INITIAL SITES FOR NEW OAHU COMMUNITY CORRECTIONAL CENTER (OCCC).
I know something I’m always gonna do. I’m gonna fight for justice, no matter what. The state is causing harm to people, families and communities by ignoring the social challenges so many of our most vulnerable people face every day.
Don’t mourn – ORGANIZE!
