• The Year of the Hawaiian Kingdom …
It’s good to learn about what happened in the past to better understand our present situation. But it’s now time to focus on the future. What do we envision a Free Hawaii to look like? We have to shift our attention to planning for and building toward the realization of a thriving, sovereign, independent nation. To help in this reset, we’re inviting everyone to make 2019 the Year of the Hawaiian Kingdom. It’s an opportunity to not only celebrate the fact that we are a nation in continuity, but we are a nation with a promising future. This reset is going to require imagination, dialog, strategizing, talent, resources, wisdom, optimism, courage and lots of Aloha ʻĀina. Be thinking about this and stay tuned…
• 126 Years Ago…
…in total disregard for international laws, the United States landed troops in Honolulu to provide military support for a group of insurgents intent on deposing the Queen, seizing control of the government and handing the Hawaiian Kingdom over to the United States. The actions of those involved violated our country’s sovereignty, hijacked the people’s land and other fundamental rights It also set a precedent… a working template for international bullying and abuse by the United States and other big powers. Over the past 126 years, the US has used this template for regime change and repeated this pattern of bad behavior many times, destabilizing and overthrowing governments at the whim of American commercial and political interests. Greed and conquest are certainly not new, but what America did to the Hawaiian Islands — taking over a country while making it look consensual and legitimate… and getting away with it — led to increasingly egregious criminal behavior. An argument can be made that the United Statesʻ current arrogant habit of interfering, disrupting, invading and fostering of regime change had its genesis in the criminal acts the US committed against the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands 126 years ago.
• Has Anyone Seen any Mention of the 60th Anniversary of the Fake State?
Ten years ago, the State of Hawaii’s 50th Anniversary celebration fizzled. Our protests of the Fake State drew way more global attention than the stateʻs furtive jubilee. This year, the stateʻs 60th Anniversary is so far nowhere to be seen. Maybe it’s because state officials know it’s a fake state and not something to celebrate. This would be a good time to ask state officials a few niggling questions like:
• When and how did the Hawaiian Kingdom become a possession of the United States?
• Where is the treaty of annexation?
• Why wasn’t “independence“ on the ballot of the 1959 plebiscite?
• Who voted in the 1959 plebiscite?
• Was the 1959 plebiscite legitimate?
• How did Hawaiians become US citizens?
• Are all Hawaiians US citizens?
• Do Hawaiian nationals living in the Hawaiian Islands have rights?
• Is the state going to stop harassing Hawaiian nationals?
It would be interesting to get a state response to these questions.
