  1. Strykers are modern chariots of empire waging illegal war in Iraq and continuing illegal occupation in Hawai'i.
  2. Strykers will cause the largest military land grab in Hawai i since WWII. The Army will seize and destroy 25,000 more acres of land.
  3. Strykers contaminate the land forever and endanger our health and safety: 25% more live ammunition into our environment, more unexploded bombs and more toxics like RDX, HMX, TNT, arsenic and lead. Strykers will kick up more than 13.4 million pounds of dust per year which can disperse toxics like radioactive Depleted Uranium, which was recently discovered in Wahiawa despite the Army's assurances that it was never used in Hawai'i.
  4. Strykers destroy sacred sites and disrupt Native Hawaiian cultural practices. The Army failed to do a survey of cultural sites, in violation of agreements. Cultural sites that turned out to be far more extensive than previously reported, have already been damaged, like the recently rediscovered Hale au au Heiau.
  5. Stryker maneuver impacts will increase by 300% including serious soil erosion that runs off and smothers our reefs.
  6. Strykers cause fires, destroy ecosystems and kill endangered species.
  7. Strykers raise the cost of living, strain public services and schools, and increase competition for housing and jobs.
  8. Strykers represent an illegal and fraudulent process driven by military pork and political corruption. The court ruled that the predetermined decision to station Strykers in Hawai i was illegal.
  9. Strykers contribute to global warming by dramatically increasing the Army's fuel consumption. The military is Hawai'i's largest consumer of energy.
  10. Strykers were rejected by the people. In the first round of hearings, Hawai i overwhelmingly said NO! to Strykers. In a recent Star Bulletin poll 73% opposed Strykers in Hawai'i.
