From The Telegraph:
Queen of Hawaii demands independence from ‘US occupiers’
The United States is an illegal occupying force that should hand the 132 islands of Hawaii back to the monarchy overthrown more than a century ago, according to members of a Native Hawaiian sovereignty movement.
All aim to “right the wrong” inflicted on Native Hawaiians in 1893 when a small, mostly American group of sugar plantation owners and other businessmen overthrew the Hawaiian monarchy with the support of US troops sent ashore from a Navy warship.
The then monarch, Queen Liliuokalani, gave up her throne “to this superior force of the United States of America” and was imprisoned in the Iolani Palace in Honolulu, built by her brother King Kalakaua. In 1898, Hawaii was annexed by the United States and in 1959 became the 50th US state.
“The Hawaiian kingdom was unlawfully taken over by a coup d’etat and then those that took it over formed an illegal government and then ceded Hawaii to the United States,” said Leon Siu, minister of foreign affairs for the Hawaiian Kingdom, another sovereignty group that shares many of the Hawaiian Kingdom Government’s aims.
So long as human beings are to suffer under the murder, robbery and fraud that all states are, we should support any measure to ensure that there are as many states as possible, and that they are as small as possible.
Free Hawaii! Secession for all!
