E komo mai! – Welcome!
Umbrella organization of Hawaiian groups fighting for self-determination and the realization of a free Kingdom of Hawaiʻi.
A campaign exposing corporate APEC: “APEC sucks labor, land and resources”
Otherwise known as Occupy Honolulu, this group supports the occupy movement out of Wall Street and organizes rolling actions.
A three day shadow conference to APEC featuring keynote speakers on Pacific peoples, Lands and Economies.
We all need to understand how we fit into APEC’s global agenda
The concrete barricades, the deployed police troops, the theatre of motorcades are evidence enough of an attack on sovereignty and, sadly, aloha itself. Our small team supports Occupy Wall Street in protest and rightful economic reconciliation that joins the dots with human rights and the environment. The corporate representatives within “Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation” are gathering here to subvert almost half of the world’s economy. With that agenda, of course we are shut out at every step and they are holding our 20 heads of state hostage.
APEC is not a people’s cooperation, nor is it a friendly opportunity for Honolulu in hosting an international event. The gathering represents the enemy of regular working people, the young and under-abled, the land and our life giving natural resources. APEC is directed by hostile / single-motive / pirate corporateers (please meet our 1% “visitors” adversaries in our pages).
The corporate representatives are in Honolulu, using 20 heads of state captive to develop their co-operation, not ours!
People throughout countries in the Pacific Asia region believe sovereign nations have not diminished, but in the practical world of global corporate conveners such borders and governments are mere staging. In a matter of just the past two decades profit conglomerates are severely attacking sovereignties. The War on Terror is their attack on everyone. The general decline of standards and liberty may make it impossible to recover in the paralleling cliff hanger that Global Warming shows.
APEC will substantially determine almost half of the world’s economy. In our very real struggle this imposes the commoner’s lot with low wages, high unemployment, high cost of living, gulfing disparity, restricted liberties, ill-reforms, democratic erosion and the expansion of military economies, war, prejudice and the decline of education and ecology.
The system by which APEC arrives at and delivers outcomes harshly affects the daily lives of billions of people and eliminating the middle class.

Welcome to Hawai`i
To our valued guests of APEC intrigue: politically you have entered the Middle East of the Pacific where war and beauty converge in global watersheds of Biblical proportion. Yes Hawaiʻi looks developed, peaceful even prosperious but scratch the occupational fake state surface of this stolen post and the truth of failure is mind shattering.
Both spiritually and physically—this is where Eden is occupied by militarism, corruption, and defilement.
It is profound that such a wondrous beauty of our planet, still birthing and growing with lava within, is held horribly captive by a belligerent superpower hell bent on reinforcing the colonial mistakes of hatred, waste and destruction. This is a call, an opportunity, to wake-up and respond to the need for a general global reconciliation.
The century of lies in Hawaiʻi is becoming apparent and understood to be devastating and unsustainable. Your stay in Hawaiʻi, along with what you see happening in the world today can bring this urgently needed revolution.
The purpose of this note is to encourage media professionals and visitors here for APEC to seek the truth of Hawaiʻi nie, learn our history, find the genuine culture—realize the insult behind the use of “hā” as a commercial theme exploited by the Polynesian Cultural Center. Find the fraud behind the so called “State of Hawaii”. Realize the insult behind the state motto, stolen by Lorrin A. Thurston in 118 years ago when USA troops ousted Hawaiʻi’s beloved Queen Liliʻuokalani (pictured in our banner). The motto was written by King Kamehameha III in 1843 when the UK corrected its illegal occupation of Hawaiʻi and restored the king. Kamehameha proclaimed in Thomas Square:
Ua Mau ke Ea o ka ʻĀina i ka Pono
The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness
It is extraordinarily profound to realize the king’s prophesy unfolding; the intellectual property of this motto unrighteous encoded into an occupied state. Not unsurprising, the outcome is the inability of the land to sustain.
11-11-11 EVENT 5 pm
People will assemble today to honour Queen Liliʻuokalani on the anniversary of her death at 5:00 pm at the Kahi Hali`a Aloha burial mound in Waikiki, corner of Kalakaua and Kapahulu Avenues (Zoo entrance and Gandhi statue).

Waikīkī protest in support of Occupy Wall Street
October 15, 2011 – Honolulu
Organizers from (De)Occupy Honolulu mounted a march from Ala Moana Beach Park through Kalakaua Avenue to Kapiolani Park to protest the small minority of individuals (“The One Percent”) who control the majority of the world’s wealth, yet repeatedly and unrepentantly abuse their influence over politicians and society to widen the gap between the social classes. More than 400 peaceful marchers attended.
