123s of Hawaiian Independence!
The first value on the platform is Independence. Ultimately, our ability to self-determine and achieve our vision for a healthy and thriving lāhui is repressed by the occupation of Hawaiʻi by the United States. As the platform states, we seek independence from the Untied States. We cannot accept federal recognition from the United States as it does not speak to the truth of our history and the organized struggle to defend Hawaiian independence by our kūpuna. We look to our history to define our future.
This occupation is motivated by the U.S.’s desire to use Hawaiʻi as a powerful military outpost through which to forward U.S. control over economic and natural resources throughout Asia and the world. We will work to liberate our land from the U.S. military’s violent practice and philosophies.
While we work to achieve such goals, it is imperative that the Crown and Government lands of the Hawaiian Kingdom, those which make up Hawaiian National Lands be preserved for future economic and cultural development for the benefit of the lāhui. Aloha ʻĀina is embedded in a practicing spiritual and material relationship with the land and ocean.
As such we must resist the establishment and actions of the Public Lands Development Corporation, formed, funded and operated by the State of Hawaiʻi to use these lands for the financial gain of the Hawaii State Department of Land and Natural Resources. The lands that the PLDC has power over are made up of Crown and government lands of the Hawaiian Kingdom that were genealogically tied to our chiefs from time immemorial.
These lands were illegally seized by the small group of businessmen, some of whom were Hawaiian subjects and some of whom were citizens of other countries, none of whom were genealogically tied to the land. These businessmen achieved power unparalleled in Hawai’i through the landing of a U.S. Naval ship that was stationed in Honolulu to protect the interest of this small group. This facilitated the beginning of the U.S. occupation of Hawaii, it’s seizure of Hawaiian national lands and the use of our lands and seas as a military training outpost for it’s wars and occupations around the world. Thus continues the occupation of Hawaiʻi by the United States of America.
