CANARY ISLANDS WILL FIGHT FOR TMT














 


ELDia.es - January 20, 2019 - By Jorge Dávila

Excerpt From A Spanish Language Interview With Rafael Rebolo Lopez,
Director - The Institute Of Astrophysics Of The Canary Islands

"That project [TMT] is defined, but its construction continues in the air for issues that affect the sacred character of a mountain," says Rebolo....

...If in the end it is not viable to locate the TMT in Hawai`i, La Palma, Canary Islands is one of the best options....

If it is not done there because it collides head-on with people who are willing to give their lives so that the mountain continue as it is today, the Institute Of Astrophysics Of Th Canary Islands must fight to have that telescope."

HAWAI`IʻS PLANTATION PAST ON “VOICES OF TRUTH - ONE-ON-ONE WITH HAWAI`IʻS FUTURE"


"Hawai`iʻs Plantation Village - A Visit With Deanna Espinas"

With immigration being in the news these days we had a chance to see what life was like for Hawai`iʻs immigrants during the plantation period around the early 1900ʻs. We spent the afternoon at Hawai`iʻs Plantation Village with Deanna Espinas who not only described what it would have been like as an immigrant laborer in Hawai`iʻs sugar cane fields, but also showed us amazing replicas of houses they lived in. As she explained to us just how hard life had been back then, we quickly wondered if any of us would have survived if we attempted that today. Join us in our extraordinary visit with Deanna and youʻll both feel and hear the voices of the past of those who gave up what they had to come and start a new life in Hawai`i - Watch It Here

KE AUPUNI UPDATE - FEBRUARY 2019
























By Leon Siu -  Hawaiian National

Keeping in touch and updated on activities regarding the restoration of Ke Aupuni o Hawai`i, the Hawaiian Kingdom.  

Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka `Aina I Ka Pono.

• Just returned from New York from meetings with Diplomats...
My meetings in New York City with diplomats, experts and movers and shakers at the UN went very well. We are making good progress with plans to have a resolution submitted to the General Assembly this Spring that will trigger a turning of the tide in our favor. Sorry to be cryptic, but weʻll be able to share more as things develop.

Mahalo nui for those who contributed in funding and other ways to make the trip possible.

------
The Quick Facts Series…
THE SITUATION OF
THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
QUICK FACTS #6
 


Maintaining a Presence…
Advocating for our country’s freedom in the international arena requires being there, in-person, as frequently as possible. This is necessary to not only establish but to maintain a presence and urgency about our cause. Otherwise, with all the intense crises going on in the world, the Hawaii situation can easily fall by the wayside and disappear. "Out of sight, out of mind” can be very real in the international scheme of things.  Fortunately, the cause for independence for the Hawaiian Islands has developed credibility and traction in the international community because we have been persistent in showing up.
 

Over the past 12 years, we have attended over 40 international meetings, mostly at the United Nations in both Geneva and New York; but also the European Union in Brussels and Strasbourg; the Melanesian Spearhead Group in New Caledonia, the Pacific Islands Development Forum in Fiji, the Pacific Islands Forum, and so forth. We have also made trips to South Korea, Taiwan, England, the Netherlands, Cuba, Bern, the capitol of Switzerland to meet with the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs and the Universal Postal Union. We have also made frequent visits to Washington, D.C.

Attending and participating in these meetings involves a great deal of travel. The more progress we make, the more travel will be required by our diplomats. In the coming months it will be necessary to visit various capitals of various countries for face-to-face talks with the presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers, parliamentarians (legislators) to discuss our situation.

As I've mentioned before, foreign diplomats used to say, “That’s a very interesting story, I wish you well with the challenges you face.” Now they are saying, “How do you think we can help?” This represents a quantum shift! The international community is starting to “see" us!

Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono. The sovereignty (life) of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.

In Quick Facts installment #7 we’ll discuss what we can do here at home to cause people to “see” us.

 
Malama pono,
Leon Siu

UNITED NATIONS IN GENEVA FEATURES HAWAI`I INDEPENDENCE DAY STORY

KE AUPUNI UPDATE - JANUARY 2019













By Leon Siu -  Hawaiian National

Keeping in touch and updated on activities regarding the restoration of Ke Aupuni o Hawai`i, the Hawaiian Kingdom.  

Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka `Aina I Ka Pono.

• Article in Diva International Diplomat... 
In early December we posted a montage of just a few of the many articles showing the attention we are getting from the international press. Well…

In its first issue of the New Year, Diva International Diplomat, one of the most prestigious publications from the UN in Geneva featured a story about Hawaiian Independence Day (attached)*. The story was originally scheduled to be printed in the November 2018 issue to commemorate the 175th Anniversary of Lā Ku`oko`a, but due to other priorities at Diva, it was shifted to the January 2019 issue. Just as good…as we are getting ready to celebrate the Year of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

On the past, the magazine featured stories of whether Alaska and Hawai`i are actually U.S. states. The September 2018 issue featured an article about Alaska.


In discussing topics for the article with the editor of Diva last September, we wanted to first address one of the biggest challenges we have with diplomats — getting them to grasp the fact that the Hawaiian Kingdom is already a recognized sovereign, independent country… We decided what better way to make that point than to share the compelling story of how that recognition was achieved… and what better opportunity than the 175th anniversary of that achievement? Thus, this article.

In the future, Diva and other international publications, will be helping us frame the vision for a Free Hawai`i; that it is not about a break-up of a relationship, it is about a return to pono… to bring things into proper balance. We are seeking to normalize and resume a healthy, respectful, productive, peaceful, sovereign-nation-to-sovereign-nation relationship with the United States… and the rest of the world… and to do it with Aloha.
 

Stay tuned for future coverage in the international media.
 

You can view the entire article here - http://divainternational.ch/the-hawaiian-islands-celebrates-175-years-of-independence.html

• Two days of Onipaʻa and Kuʻe...
For two days last week the grounds of `Iolani Palace and the (soon-to-be Hawaiian Kingdom) Capitol building were saturated with the sights and sounds of Onipa`a and Ku`e. It was intense... and glorious... celebrating the fact that the Hawaiian Kingdom is alive, growing and on the move. Thousands of people participated in highly visible activities dominating the area of the capitol and the palace. Mahalo to all who organized the events... and to all who came to ku`e and kako`o! It was an awesome two days.

• To New York to meet with International Diplomats...
By the time you get this update, Iʻll be in New York City for meetings with diplomats, dignitaries and movers and shakers at the UN. We are going over plans for the introduction of a resolution to the General Assembly later this Spring that we believe will help to turn the tide in our favor. Weʻll share more as things develop.

OHA’S OWN AUDIT BLOCKED BY PEOPLE AT OHA

 

 

 

 

 

 

Honolulu Civil Beat - By Anita Hofschneider

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs is spending half a million dollars for an independent audit that’s supposed to be done by April. But it’s unclear whether auditors will be able to meet that deadline because some OHA employees are refusing to hand over key financial documents.

That’s according to internal correspondence among CliftonLarsonAllen auditors and OHA trustees obtained by Civil Beat.

The lack of transparency illustrates continuing problems at OHA after a series of scandals including a critical state audit and ethics investigations that ensnared two former trustees. The public agency manages hundreds of millions of trust dollars for the benefit of Hawaiians.

OHA said last year that it is being investigated by the state attorney general. Hawaii News Now reported that OHA is also the target of an FBI probe into public corruption and misappropriation.

OHA’s chief executive officer Kamanaʻopono Crabbe and board chairwoman Colette Machado did not respond to interview requests but a spokesman for OHA said in an email that the agency is committed to the audit process.

Last year’s state audit criticized both Crabbe and OHA trustees for loose spending. 

But it didn’t look at the limited liability companies created by OHA and led by Crabbe, nonprofits that do a variety of things including managing Waimea Valley on O`ahu and promoting economic development for Native Hawaiian businesses.

The internal audit is intended to be a forensic analysis of both the public agency and its LLCs that identifies potential areas of fiscal waste, fraud and abuse.

OHA’s board has been planning to conduct this independent audit for more than two years in response to concerns from beneficiaries. Trustees had high hopes it would help improve the public’s trust in OHA.

“The audit was supposed to be a tool to strengthen OHA, assist the Board in its fiscal oversight and restore credibility to OHA,” Trustee Carmen Hulu Lindsey wrote in a Nov. 30 letter to OHA Chairwoman Colette Machado. She added that the internal audit is supposed to inform OHA’s strategic planning and decisions about the budget and structure of the organization’s LLCs.

But as of Nov. 30, OHA’s administration has “failed to provide 15 of the 33 of the requested documents,” Hulu Lindsey wrote, adding that the limited liability companies — which were excluded from last year’s state audit — haven’t provided any documents to the auditor at all.

“OHA’s failure and the LLCs’ refusal to honor the Board’s will have led to substantial and unwarranted delays. The final audit report was due to the Board by April 2019. It is now unclear whether CLA will be able to complete the audit at all,” she wrote.

Hulu Lindsey said Tuesday that she still has the same concerns. She said OHA’s staff has been working on providing documents to the independent auditor but that to her knowledge, the LLCs have still given the auditor no financial documents.

“It is a concern of mine because time keeps ticking,” she said, adding that the board could potentially extend the deadline for completing the audit due to delays.

A Nov. 28 status report from CliftonLarsonAllen to Lindsey and Trustee John Waihe`e IV noted that the LLCs have cited ongoing litigation as a reason not to provide financial documents. 

Conservative blogger Andrew Walden is suing OHA’s limited liability companies for access to their financial records.

OHA’s Board of Trustees voted last February to require the LLCs to submit documents for the internal audit.

Trustee Keli`i Akina has been a vocal advocate for accessing that information. 

He said Tuesday that trustees have been “waiting far too long to get this audit” and that the board needs “to take action and demonstrate the will to push the audit forward.”

“Given delays that we’ve experienced it’s not certain whether we’ll be able to meet the original deadline,” he said. “Beneficiaries and legislators need to speak up and call for a successful and timely completion of this audit.”
