The March “Free Hawaii News” features a special report on the likelihood of evictions after significant rent increases announced by the fake state of Hawaii on Waiahole Valley residents.

“Fake state officials tried to raise rents in Waiahole Valley fifty years ago and instead it helped kickstart the Hawaiian sovereignty movement. An historic standoff occurred between Hawaiians and fake state law enforcement after evictions were attempted nearly a half century ago,” states Free Hawaii News co-host Leon Siu. “Weʻll see if the fake state learned their lesson then or if history is about to repeat itself.”

Free Hawaii News also airs a report from Maui on the US military toxic fuel spill atop Haleakala as well as an interview with the worldʻs only female Hawaiian martial arts Lua instructor on how native Hawaiian women and girls can protect themselves from becoming the victims of abduction or assault. “We have many Hawaiian women and girls murdered and missing, so this is valuable information every mother and daughter will want to know,” remarked co-host Hinaleimoana Wong.

Also in our March show Leon Siu gives an update report on progress for Hawaii at the United Nations.

Brought to you by the Koani Foundation, Free Hawaii News airs the first Friday evening of every month on channel 53 of `Ōlelo Television on O`ahu at 6 PM. Free Hawaii News now also airs on all neighbor island television stations. Check local listings for times.
