Restore the Kingdom Of Hawaii from US illegal occupation
Welina me ke aloha - Greetings with regards
In 1893, a group of foreign-born sugar growers living in the Kingdom of Hawai’i decided to overthrow the Kingdom government and annex Hawai’i to the United States. The United States Minister to Hawai’i landed United States Marines to support the overthrow.
Queen Lili’uokalani stepped down to avoid bloodshed and agreed by United States Presidential Decree that the United States Government would restore her to her throne and her nation’s independence. While the United States President Grover Cleveland at the time termed the overthrow “an act of war committed with the participation of a diplomatic representative of the United States and without authority of Congress“, the United States did not restore the Kingdom government and eventually annexed the islands.
In 1993, the United States Congress passed and President Clinton signed what is known as the Apology Resolution. This resolution recognized that “the indigenous Hawaiian people never directly relinquished their claims to their inherent sovereignty as a people or over their national lands to the United States, either through their monarchy or through a plebiscite or referendum.“
Since the day of the overthrow, the Hawaiian people have sought to restore their nation. Today, there is an internationally recognized Treaty to return Hawai’i to the community of nation’s original monarchy and Kingdom. The goal is a non-aligned, sustainable nation providing peace making resolutions to the rest of the Human Family.
We are asking the people of the world to sign a petition to the United States government calling for the restoration of the Kingdom of Hawai’i as an independent nation.
Mahalo palena ‘ole - Gratitude beyond measure
