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.

Ku Kia`i is infectious! … Ku Kia`i Waimanalo!

With expressions of solidarity continuing to flow in from all over the world, protectors of the Mauna have passed 70 days of Kapu Aloha. Not only that, support at home is growing. In the two months of remaining steadfast to the principle of Kapu Aloha, a major shift has taken place in the polls. It went from 72% of “Hawaiians” for TMT, to now something like 52% siding with the Protectors to stop the project. It’s an amazing turn around! Congratulations and mahalo nui to the Kapu Aloha warriors. Ku Kia’i Mauna!

And now… it’s spreading! Aloha aina to the kia’i at Sherwoods in Waimanalo!
The Lahui arising!

UN Geneva Press Meeting

I was in Geneva from September 9-21 attending the Human Rights Council where I was a speaker on five panels, delivered two interventions to the council, and had several meetings with various diplomats and organizations. We continue to build momentum there.

On September 20, ACANU, the Association of Accredited Correspondents at the United Nations (the UN Press Corps), convened a meeting in Press Room 2 at the Palais des Nations to hear Dr. Alfred deZayas, Ambassador Ronald Barnes (Alaska) and me announce an initiative that will soon be introduced at the UN General Assembly in New York… The initiative calls for a review of UN General Assembly Resolution 1469, adopted in 1959. That review would start to unravel the claim that Hawaii and Alaska are part of the United States.

The correspondents gathered expressed great interest as, for the past five years, they had been tracking and publishing articles about the illegal occupation of Hawaii and Alaska by the United States. And more recently, they’ve been watching the story of Mauna Kea unfold. Five years ago, it was Pakistan that blew open the door by asking the U.S. a question about a recommendation made by Independent Expert Dr. deZayas in 2013, suggesting that the situations of Hawai`i and Alaska were international, not domestic matters.

In New York… 

I’ve been in New York for the opening weeks of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly. Lots of security and speeches. And demonstrations close to the UN and at various parts of the city. So far I’ve had several opportunities inside and outside the UN, to speak of Peace through Aloha. This is a theme that is being well received… Developing…
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.
