News Release from KOA, August 5, 2021

[Honolulu, Hawaii 8/5/2021] The Knights of Aloha will be protesting Governor Ige’s emergency proclamation mandating State and County workers to get the vaccine. There is no way the local people of Hawai’i will accept this decision and the overreach of Governor Ige’s emergency proclamations have gone way too far.

Many local people are against the vaccine which is proven to be true since no amount of incentivizing, coercion, or bribing unvaccinated residents seems to be proven effective at a stagnant 60% vaccination rate.

These same people are vehemently angry and fed up with the Hawaii State leaders overstepping their constitutional bounds in the name of “safety.”

Although KOA supports anyone’s individual decision to get or deny the vaccine, we do not support the forcing of any entity of any type to keep a job or participate in essential aspects of society to provide for their families.

This rally is meant to publicly display pushback of this atrocious decision and bring awareness to many Hawaii residents that do not agree with this decision and call for Governor Ige’s impeachment.

This is a peaceful rally. The Knights of Aloha condemns any damage of private or public property and any form of violence.

You do not fix this by forcing and shaming our residents against their will. Our citizens have lost so much throughout the last year, their God-given freedoms cannot be one of them.

News Release from Rep Val Okimoto, R-Mililani, August 5, 2021

HONOLULU, HI—Today Republican State Representative Val Okimoto (R-36, Mililani Mauka, Mililani, Waipi‘o Acres) wrote a letter to Governor Ige in response to increasing pressure to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for public workers.

Okimoto specifically took issue with the vaccine messaging statewide and nationally.

"One of the most common reasons for people not getting the vaccine is institutional distrust and government hesitancy," she wrote in the letter. "You fix this problem by continuing to encourage people to protect themselves and their loved ones and helping them through their hesitancies.

Okimoto has received both doses of the Moderna vaccine earlier this year. She reiterated her intent to encourage members of the public to vaccinate:

"Lastly, I want to say that I will continue to encourage those who have not been vaccinated to do so, to protect their loved ones, their ‘ohana, and their communities," Okimoto concluded. "It is incumbent on us to lead by example, to cultivate trust and to support unconditionally."
