KE AUPUNI UPDATE - SEPTEMBER 2019

8y 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.

At The UN
Aloha! I’m at the UN in Geneva again. The end of next week I go to the UN in New York.

Basically, our main objectives at the United Nations are: 1. to expose the wrong the US is committing in the Hawaiian Islands, 2. to share aloha and make friends with as many as possible, 3. to get our friends ready to mobilize their kokua when the time comes.

In Geneva… I usually attend the sessions of human rights bodies such as the Human Rights Council, the Human Rights Committee, the Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, etc. to take advantage of the opportunity to meet and speak with all those that attend those meetings: country representatives, UN staff members, international lawyers, scholars and activists… to share our story and learn theirs… to build friendly relations and caring about each other’s situations, struggles and aspirations.

In Geneva… I deliver remarks (interventions) at the formal meetings to present a Hawaiian perspective on whatever topic is being discussed; pointing out the remedy lies in regaining control of decision-making on critical issues. At the Human Rights Council I speak regularly on panels hosted by groups from around the world, on many aspects of human rights. During a two week period, I will speak on anywhere from 3-6 of these panel events. Last year at one of the Human Rights Council sessions I spoke on five events, four of them alongside Dr. deZayas, who ended up speaking on a record seven panels that session.

In New York… group access is less available so it takes a lot of separate meetings to reach more people. I am able to sit in and observe the sessions, but not allowed to participate. However, New York is where the key mechanisms that can more directly impact us are located. We are preparing to have a resolution to review the procedures that led to “statehood” submitted to the UN General Assembly very soon. That review, innocuous as it may seem, will begin to unravel the web of lies that the US has spun to obfuscate their criminal actions against our country and our people. Exposure of the fraud will obligate the UN and every one of its member states to ensure a just remedy for the error they made… In other words, they have to fix the wrong.

In New York… we are also working with a broad coalition to light a fire under a vital UN mechanism that had been allowed to atrophy, leaving many peoples and nations stranded and abandoned in their quest to liberate their countries. Along with campaigning for our cause, we have been quietly building support for an action that will trigger relief for others as well.

Again, sorry for being cryptic for now. Soon we’ll be able to say more…

 
NOTE: The next two months are critical to getting the review initiated at the UN. Your kokua is needed to move this forward! Imua!

Kū`e! Kū Kia`i Mauna! Kapu Aloha!

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

ARRESTS, CLEARING ROAD MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO MOVE TMT PROJECT FORWARD

 




















Honolulu Star-Advertiser - September 1, 2019

The activists blocking construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope project on Mauna Kea are using nonviolent tactics that have successfully spurred social change over the years, but in the last decade law enforcement agencies across the nation have refined their own tactics for containing and controlling such movements.

After years of Black Lives Matter and Occupy protests in major U.S. cities, many law enforcement agencies have adopted a “soft” approach to managing crowds engaged in civil disobedience and protest, a strategy that emphasizes flexibility, patience and open communication with protest leaders.
But that takes time, and TMT must decide “soon” whether it will proceed with plans to build the project in Hawaii. Gordon Squires, vice president for external relations for TMT, said in an interview Friday he can’t exactly define when “soon” might be, but TMT has a backup site in the Canary Islands.

Protesters have now been camped at the Mauna Kea Access Road for six weeks to prevent construction vehicles from reaching the summit area to begin work on the $1.4 billion TMT project, and the activists have planned for a long blockade.

As protest leader Kaho­‘okahi Kanuha put it in a videotaped statement to the media on July 29, “we did not come into this thinking it would be a two-week stance. We are committed to a prolonged struggle, and the truth of the matter is, you cannot arrest this issue away.”

‘It’s time’

Without explicitly mentioning arrests or the use of force, state Sen. Lorraine Inouye pointedly told Gov. David Ige in an open letter recently that “It’s time,” adding, “We cannot pick and choose. Laws must be followed, all laws, all the time.” Other critics have been more blunt, demanding that police move in, make arrests and use force if necessary to clear the road.

Ige, who is ultimately responsible for resolving the impasse, said in an interview Thursday that “it’s more complex than people think.”

“We want to be safe, and we want to do it in as peaceful a manner as we can, so it’s about being able to listen, seek opportunities to find peaceful solutions, and then, yes, we do know that we need to enforce the law. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s about,” he said.

The protesters say they will never allow TMT to be built on Mauna Kea, which many Hawaiians consider to be sacred, and there is no sign yet that discussions led by Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim to try to resolve the standoff are making any progress.

Hardy Merriman, president of the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict in Washington, D.C., said that when people organize as they have on Mauna Kea to use nonviolent tactics such as strikes, boycotts and civil disobedience, those efforts have “a pretty remarkable record of success in the United States and around the world.”

He cited the examples of the U.S. civil rights movement, the women’s suffrage movement, labor organizing by the United Farm Workers and the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, or ACT UP, which pressured authorities to address the AIDS epidemic. Each of those movements relied on people who were historically disenfranchised, he said.

“When people perceive that the institutions are not going to be effective or historically haven’t been effective or sufficient to them, (and) when they see there’s a way for ordinary people to organize, unify and wield genuine political and economic power, that’s enormously powerful,” Merriman said.

Certainly the protesters on Mauna Kea are skeptical that existing political institutions have served Hawaiians well. In a speech to more than 1,000 protesters on July 28, Kanuha said the power brokers in Hawaii would “be better off without us, and they’ve done everything that they could to ensure that that happens, but they did not succeed. They will never succeed. We will always be here.”

“I know as long as we have each other, as long as we are unified and united, there is no end to the things that we can do, there is no end to our people. We will be here forever, we will fight to protect these lands, and to ensure that Hawaiians have a future in Hawaii,” Kanuha told the crowd.

That sort of talk is deeply troubling to supporters of the TMT, who worry the opponents of the project have no “exit strategy” or any plan for any sort of compromise.

Merriman, a social scientist who has studied nonviolent movements for 17 years, said the use of the word “sacred” to describe Mauna Kea suggests TMT is caught in what experts describe as an acute conflict, or one where people believe they face a fundamental or existential threat, which can include threats to “cultural survival.”

In less intense conflicts, adversaries can make deals over easier issues such as pay or working conditions, but “when people perceive themselves as being in an acute conflict, the negotiation by itself becomes very challenging,” he said.

And that may shift the focus to law enforcement....

...Squires, the TMT vice president, said a simple police sweep of the access road and the nearby camp at Puu Huluhulu cannot resolve the Mauna Kea protests, which have spread across the state and beyond Hawaii.

“This situation that we’re in in Hawaii now is clearly about issues far beyond TMT and Mauna Kea,” he said. Many of the issues the activists raise on the mountain are vast, complex and historical, including Hawaiian sovereignty and self- governance, preservation of Hawaiian language and culture, and environmental protection.

The TMT project has become a catalyst for those much bigger issues “to come to the surface and potentially be addressed, hopefully this time successfully,” Squires said. Those issues have now become the focus of community discussions including Hawaiian community leaders, Ige and Kim, he said.

“I don’t see the resolution of the current situation being simply opening that road and reestablishing access to Mauna Kea,” Squires said. “There’s a bigger component that has to be part of this.”

When asked if the larger issues raised by the protesters could possibly be resolved in time to clear the way for TMT, Squires replied that perhaps the prospect of losing a project as important as TMT will help “leadership to emerge and for people to come together to address these fundamental issues.”

“I think this is a situation that has triggered something that is almost unprecedented in Hawaii. I think that’s a fair statement, and so that’s a good thing, and maybe that now gives the impetus for leaders from everywhere to come together and address some things,” Squires said.

KE AUPUNI UPDATE - AUGUST 2019

8y 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.

• The Floundering Fake State
Things are not going well for Hawaii the Fake State. On the 60th anniversary of “statehood” the Honolulu Star-Advertiserʻs front-page, above-the-fold headline was: HOLIDAY HO-HUM pointing to the state’s strange disinterest in its own anniversary. When contacted, state officials’ response was basically: “No comment.” Their avoidance indicates they are obviously not proud of their own state’s birthday. And rightfully so. The false narrative of Hawaii as the 50th State of the United States of America has been steadily unravelling for decades and recent events have accelerated the unmasking of the Fake State.

The Hawaiian people’s stand to protect Mauna Kea has brought global attention to the profound concepts of Aloha Aina, Pono and Kuleana and the practice of Kapu Aloha. It also poses the over-arching moral questions of right and wrong. In doing so, Ku Kiaʻi Mauna exposes the operations of the State of Hawaii regarding ownership, authority, jurisdiction and trust obligations. They may be ‘legal’ but are they right?

In the past week alone, state officials have begun to admit ‘some problems’ with the Stateʻs administration of Mauna Kea: the State doesnʻt appear to have  proper authority to regulate the Mauna Kea Access Road; the State Supreme Court ruled the State breached its trust duties regarding the Pohakuloa Training Area; the first 9 of the 38 kupuna went to court to plead not guilty to charges of obstruction of the MKA Road… Add to these the plethora of cases regarding land titles, targeted arrests and arbitrary detention of Hawaiian subjects, falsified reports to the United Nations, and so forth, and the U.S. and its fake state are in deep trouble. 

If state officials admit that, because procedures were not followed to acquire the land under the access road, it would possibly invalidate the stateʻs authority to regulate that road, then shouldnʻt that same principle apply to all the lands and territorial waters of the Hawaiian Islands?... none of which was acquired by any lawful process.

 
• Speaking of Procedure…
In 1959 the U.S. fooled the United Nations into passing UNGA Resolution 1469, accepting the United states’ report that through a plebiscite, the “people of Hawaii” had overwhelmingly consented to Hawaii becoming a state of the United States. In passing that resolution accepting the U.S. report, as far as the UN was concerned, Hawaii (and Alaska) were states of the United States.

But that sneaky move by the U.S. is also it’s Achilles heel. As it turns out, UNGA Resolution 1469 is the sole thread holding up the U.S.’ claim to Hawaii. We are about to snip that thread by calling on the UN General Assembly to initiate a review of the conditions and procedures that led to the adoption of that resolution accepting the U.S. report.

An honest review of the facts will uncover that major fraud was involved and UNGA Resolution 1469 was made in error. At that point, not only will the claim of Hawaii statehood be discredited, but the long history of wrongful acts is unleashed, flooding in to wipe out all U.S. claims of dominion over the Hawaiian Islands.

 
Kū`e! Kū Kia`i Mauna! Kapu Aloha!

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


NOTE: The next two months are critical to getting the review initiated at the UN. Your kokua is needed to move this forward! Imua!

HAWAI`I FAKE STATE BEWARE
YOUʻVE AWAKENED A GIANT
































Hawai`i Tribune-Herald - August 23, 2019

An overflow crowd of about 200 people packed a Hilo courtroom and an adjacent hallway as nine kupuna were arraigned this morning on charges they obstructed Maunakea Access Road on July 17 to prevent construction vehicles and workers from scaling Maunakea to build the Thirty Meter Telescope.

The nine, Jim Albertini, Tomas Belsky, Marie Alohalani Brown, Ana Kahoopii, Kaliko Kanaele, Carmen Hulu Lindsey, Edleen Peleiholani, Hawley Reese and Ranette Robinson, all pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor obstruction charges. They were the first of 38 individuals arrested on the third day of protests on the mountain they consider sacred.

Peleiholani, who’s known as “Aunty Tootsie,” was clad in a red blouse and ti leaf lei, bearing a red- and yellow-feathered kahili. She told Hilo District Judge Bruce Larson, “I plead not guilty of being on Hawaiian land.”

Larson ordered all nine to appear at 1:30 p.m. Sept. 20 for pre-trial conferences. Trials will presumably be set during those court dates.

The remaining 29 individuals arrested face court dates next month and in October.

Maunakea Access Road continues to be blockaded by demonstrators protesting the construction of the $1.4 billion telescope. The protesters call themselves kia`i, or protectors of the mountain.
