Pin 44096 United States Honolulu
English (English) Hawai'i Creole (Hawaiian Creole English)
The domain for this photo is education and school. The Pidgin in this case is saying that we need to put an end to violence. A direct translation of it would be “finish violence”. This relates to program at UH Manoa. The intended audience is UH Manoa students and faculty. The sign is at QLC. I believe it is printed on poster paper. The implied message as mentioned before is to put an end to violence. PAU to the program means “Prevention, Awareness, Understanding”. - CQ Multilingual Hawaiʻi
