On August 21, 1959, Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States. That decision continues to be discussed by those who share the idea that Free Hawaiian Islands exist.
Some people speak about conceding the status of “A nation within another nation” to the Hawaiian people, as has happened with other Native American peoples like the Navajos and the Apache, but those who want the Free Hawaiian Islands don’t agree: they think they will lose more than they gain and that they will never be really free.
The Hawaiians aren’t asking for “limited self-government in captivity”, but are demanding a complete return to their status as a Sovereign Nation. As indicated in Article 73 in the United Nations’ Charter (a document signed by the United States): …recognise the principle that the interests of the territories are paramount.”
In reality, what many Hawaiians want is to return to a constitutional monarchy. The analysts remember that, in 1893, a Hawaiian monarchy was illegally dethroned and the best opportunity for Hawaii to have its sovereignty returned would be under a similar system. Once its much desired sovereignty would be recovered they could, starting with the Constitution, form any type of government chosen by the Hawaiian people.
Several events in the last 20 years have marked the development of the struggle to obtain a Free Hawaii. In 1993, the United States Congress signed what is known as the Apology Resolution, where they publicly admit to the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy and the arrest of Queen Liliuokalani. Since then, two decades later, the governments that have occupied the White House have done everything possible to avoid the consequences of this Resolution, which would have the unavoidable result of returning Hawaii’s sovereignty. On February 22, 1998 His Majesty, Akahi Nui – direct descendent of Queen Liliuokalani – was crowned King of the Hawaiian Nation. He releases Diplomatic Passports for the Hawaiian Kingdom and is recognised on an international level; in addition, he has also signed agreements with other nations.
One of the worries that foreigners have regarding the sovereignty of Hawaii is linked to property: those who fight for Free Hawaii have recognised that if a foreigner wants to be a loyal citizen of the Hawaiian Kingdom, he can continue to live in his own home. Furthermore, His Majesty is also offering an amnesty to those who have received or acquired property considered as “stolen” from the Monarchy.
His Majesty, Akahi Nui, has been recognised by the United Nations and the World Court. The Royal Family and their staff travel with a diplomatic passport from the Hawaiian Kingdom, receiving visas without any problems. His Highness Akahi Nui has been invited to meet several VIP from the European realms even though the United States media have maintained complete silence on these subjects.
The Hawaiian nation has received international recognition as an independent nation, egalitarian and where international law is respected. The Hawaiian Nation has executive treaties and agreements with several countries around the world, like Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Belgium, Bremen, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Samoa, Spain and Switzerland.
