Hawaii’s Korean American community took to the streets to condemn the threats from North Korea, reports Hawaii News Now.

They waved both American and South Korean flags and spoke out against threats by Kim Jong Un that nuclear weapons would be used against the United States.

“It’s a shock to us that they would say that without really having the capability to do so,” said David Suh of the United Korean Association of Hawaii, which organized the event. “But at least, a threat is a threat.”

The protestors gathered at the State Capitol. Many are keeping in touch with loved ones in South Korea and expressed confidence the situation could be defused.

“I believe we have enough deterrence, and there are diplomatic solutions to this, and there are things going on that can prevent worse things from happening,” said Suh.
