    Yesterday, I attended a very interesting lecture at the University of Houston, Downtown campus where we watched Temple Under Siege - a documentary addressing the grievances of native Hawaiians on issue of mountain volcano Mauna Kea. The guest speaker was Hawaiian activist Paul Neves.

    Paul Neves introduced us to the Kingdom of Hawaii: "I am not a US national or citizen. The US seized our land through congressional legislation and desecrated our holy mountain where our forefathers are buried by turning it into a global observatory.

    "There is no treaty between Hawaii and the US relinquishing our sovereignity.

    "Our parents signed a petition in 1897 denouncing US citizenship and yet we are being colonized by the US.

    "We are not an internal affair of the US government.

    "We want to be left alone to manage our nation and govern ourselves...."


    Until yesterday, I assumed Hawaii was a willing member of the US union.

    Is the US illegally occupying Hawaii? A great number of native Hawaiians seem to be of the opinion that they are being colonized by the US against their wishes.

    Hawaiian activist Paul Neves and his friends are seeking secession from the US union. "Hawaii is a sovereign nation," he declared.

    Hawaii is a state.

    There is still a movement among Hawaiians to create a separate entity giving them autonomy.

    "We were the first nation the US imposed a puppet government upon and still are," says Paul Neves.

    "The US is killing sons and daughters of the US and natives in other nations in the name of liberation, yet we are in captivity in our land, allegedly a part of the US union," Paul Neves added.

    When you say "State," do you mean a State as in a governed entity such as a sovereign nation/country which the UN implies when it uses the word State, or as in a sub-entity such as in an autonomy, or as in State of the US?

    In any case, Paul Neves and his Hawaiian friends do not want to be part of the US union and they are not that interested in being a sub-entity as Native Americans are in their little prisons called reservations. "We are not an internal affair of the US government and Hawaii is a sovereign nation," declared Paul Neves.

    Therefore, the Kingdom of Hawaii. "We do not want to be in bondage in our land like the Native Americans are."
