Who we are: Supporters of Hawaiian independence
Meet at 8:30 am in front of Moa Mua Tei on Kapi`olani Blvd. Our
understanding is that the police will barricade Ala Wai Blvd. across
the Canal from the Convention Center, blocking access to the Local 5
hall. Kapi`olani Blvd. itself will likely be closed off to traffic.
Parking is uncertain. However, we will attempt to congregate across
the street from the Convention Center on Kapi`olani. Please join us
there on Wednesday morning at 8:30 for brief ceremony at 9 am, and
banner-holding until the marchers arrive. Those wishing to join the
march before it begins are encouraged to do so. If you are uncertain
where to go, LOOK FOR THE HAWAIIAN FLAG.
We will have brochures to hand out to passersby. We are outlining a
1) we stand in solidarity with those who support Hawaiian
independence, in whatever form
2) we stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who have been
and are being displaced, disenfranchised, and killed, and whose
poverty and dependence have increased as a result of economic
policies imposed by global banking and trade agreements
3) we support the right of the earth to renew itself, free from the
demands and abuse of global development, and claim our responsibility
as indigenous peoples of the world to care for and nurture all things
We hope to catch the eye of international media and share information
with them. We invite you to join us as fellow supporters.
