Aloha,

Below are the upcoming ʻĀINA screenings to help bring attention to the federal hearings on June 15th regarding the lawsuits that the agrochemical industry brought against Kaua`i, Maui, and the Big Island for their initiatives to regulate the industry.

This is a vital time for the movements to protect the people and environment of Hawaii and what happens will have far reaching implications. Your energy is needed to make them positive for people and the planet. Please attend these events if they are in your area and share them with friends, colleagues and media contacts in Hawaii and San Francisco.

Yes! ʻĀINA just won the "On The Road Documentary Award" worth $2,500 at the Scruffy City Film & Music Festival in Knoxville, TN. ʻĀINA also won awards for Best Documentary Short and Best Trailer.

This completes our fundraising campaign for screenings in Honolulu and San Francisco to raise awareness about the federal lawsuits that agrochemical companies have brought against Kaua`i and other islands for their county initiatives to protect the environment and local communities from toxic pollution. Many thanks to everyone who supported our campaign on UPTOGOOD!

Aloha,

The ʻĀINA Crew

Great news! ʻĀINA will be screened at the Roxie and Vogue theatres in San Francisco as part of SF DocFest June 2nd - 16th. The federal judges who are coming to Honolulu are from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals based in San Francisco. So this is a very timely opportunity to generate attention in SF as well around the lawsuits that the agrochemical industry brought against Kaua`i, Maui, and the Big Island for their democratically won initiatives to govern the industry. We'll keep you posted on specific screening dates and times.

A big mahalo to Neil Young for supporting our campaign! And to Hawaii Volcanic Beverages for matching the contribution!!

These funds will help with a series of screenings in Honolulu this June to generate a public presence when Federal Judges come to hear arguments in the lawsuits the agrochemical industry has filed against the islands because of their democratically won initiatives to protect their environment and health.

We're extremely grateful to everyone who has supported this campaign. `AINA continues to shine a global spotlight on what's happening on Kaua`i and things are beginning to change. Companies including DuPont, Syngenta and BASF, have already abandoned thousands of acres. The Waimea community unanimously won a lawsuit against DuPont/Pioneer regarding pesticide drift. A State Department of Agriculture sponsored Joint Fact Finding Study has reinforced concerns about pesticides on the island. EPA investigators are finally now in Hawaii to look into the behavoir of the agrochemical industry.

Pleas share this campaign to keep building the momentum. Thanks again. Aloha.
