A discussion on another blog revealed that some are still unaware of the grassroots movement in Hawai’i.“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” – Vladimir Lenin
That compelled me to post this report as a reminder of the wave of awareness sweeping the World.
For readers who have not read previous posts on Hawaii please review: here and here.
The Hawaiian Islands are much more than a GMO/Monsanto controversy and erupting volcanos!
A ancient kingdom that still exists has found its voice to speak TRUTH to all People on Earth.
Hawai’i was (and still is) a prosperous and non-violent kingdom before being occupied by military bases… ~Ron

Below are reminders about Hawaiian affairs
The Best of Honolulu 2001Most provocative notion in Hawaiian affairs
August 15-21, 2001
The issues of Native Hawaiian rights, sovereignty and potential models for Hawaiian self-governance have recently come to include more and more dialogue about a model of independence based not on ethnicity, but on the Hawaiian Kingdom’s already existent/never-extinguished sovereignty and the actual laws of the kingdom. Two things are compelling about this idea: It’s fueled by international laws that govern occupation; and two, the notion of an already existent sovereignty might affect dialogue about the relationship between Native Hawaiian people and the U.S. government.
Eight months ago, self-appointed representatives from the Hawaiian Kingdom appeared at the World Court’s Permanent Court of Arbitration (Dec. 7, 2000), to defend themselves in a non-contentious case between Lance Paul Larsen and the Hawaiian Kingdom. In the body of the award handed down by the arbitrators in February, the independence of the Hawaiian Kingdom during the 19th century was acknowledged. This, combined with the fact that no known record of the Hawaiian Kingdom ever relinquishing its sovereignty exists, calls into question the legitimacy of “statehood.”
Since that appearance at the World Court, international laws that govern rules of occupation and America’s own domestic policies have become topics in discussions between Hawaiians.
Spurred on by his visit to The Hague, this past July 5, David Keanu Sai, Acting Minister of the Hawaiian Kingdom, submitted a complaint at the United Nation’s Security Council that, like the above-mentioned case, stipulates that the Hawaiian Kingdom is still in existence. Entitled “Complaint Against the United States of America – Concerning the American Occupation of the Hawaiian Kingdom,” the 139-page document includes a list of every nation the Hawaiian Kingdom had/has treaties with, as well as the international laws that still govern and protect those treaties. The document also spells out America’s abuse of power, sometimes reading like a laundry list of how America has deceived and manipulated its way into occupying Hawai’i both militarily and economically. And now, by virtue of having accepted the complaint, the UN Security Council must take up the issue of America’s occupation of Hawai’i.
Hawaiian Kingdom Complaint filed with U.N. Security Council against the United States
On July 5, 2001, the Agent for the Hawaiian Kingdom, H.E. David Keanu Sai, Acting Minister of Interior, filed with the Security Council at United Nations headquarters in New York a Complaint against the United States of America concerning the prolonged occupation of the Hawaiian Islands since the Spanish-American War of 1898.
The Complaint was filed with the Security Council in accordance with Article 35(2) of the United Nations Charter, which provides, “a State which is not a Member of the United Nations may bring to the attention of the Security Council or of the General Assembly any dispute to which it is a party if it accepts in advance, for the purpose of the dispute, the obligations of pacific settlement provided in the present Charter.”
The Hawaiian Kingdom has requested the Security Council, in accordance with Article 36(1) of the United Nations Charter, to investigate the Hawaiian Kingdom question, in particular, the merits of the complaint, and to recommend appropriate procedures or methods of adjustment.
The July 6 Press Release provides a summary of the Complaint.
The Honolulu Weekly’s Editors’ Picks for the The Best of Honolulu 2001 call the efforts of the Hawaiian Kingdom Government, including the UN Complaint, the “Most provocative notion in Hawaiian affairs.”
The Complaint is provided here in its entirety, including three attachments, totalling 139 pages, and the Complaint and each attachment are also provided as separate files.
