Hawai’i Peace and Justice/Honolulu Friends Meeting/Progressive Democrats

At least 20+ protesters showed up to hold banners and signs in front of the Downtown Honolulu Post Office notifying taxpayers and passersby about the huge portion of their tax dollars that go to the military. Hawai’i Peace and Justice was joined by Honolulu Friends Meeting members and Progressive Democrats. Fliers were available, as well as jars labeled “Housing”, “Education”, “Farms”, “Health”, “Military” so that people dropping by could choose where they would rather spend their taxes. Instead of actual money, they could drop skittles in each jar. Lots of people saw the large bright twelve-foot banner, and slowed down to look, and some stopped by.
