RE: Ka ʻAhahui Hawaiʻi Aloha ʻĀina / Hawaiian Patriotic League participation in the events being held on January 17th, 2018, the 125th anniversary of the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom government with military intervention by the United States
During a special meeting held January 7, 2018 the members of the Central Body of Ka ʻAhahui Hawaiʻi Aloha ʻĀina / Hawaiian Patriotic League met regarding the 125th anniversary commemorative events being held in Honolulu on January 17, 2018. Those members in attendance voted unanimously to participate in activities to be held at Mauna ʻAla, the so-called State Capitol rotunda, and ʻIolani Palace grounds as a show of support for and rememberance of our late Queen Liliʻuokalani and to acknowledge the continuity of the Hawaiian Kingdom.
We therefore issue the following statement to our Membership:
The ʻAhahui Hawaiʻi Aloha ʻĀina / Hawaiian Patriotic League highly encourages all members, Hawaiian Kingdom subjects, Aloha ʻĀina Patriots and supporters to participate in the events centered on the 125th anniversary of the illegal overthrow and subsequent occupation of our lands by United States-backed insurgents. We call for all like-minded individuals to gather peacefully, regardless of political affiliation, and unify in remembrance of our beloved Queen. We ask that all members make necessary arrangements to attend as they are able.
We also ask for those who are unable to attend in person, to keep our Queen, Country, and Kupuna Aloha ʻĀina / Hawaiian patriots in your thoughts. Display your Hae Hawaiʻi and National symbols in prominent places, observing moments of quiet contemplation throughout the day. We ask that our Lāhui follow their hearts, and not give in to divisive rhetoric taking place on social media or calls from organizational leaders proposing a boycott of such events.
Let this be a time of unity and reflection amongst our people. Let us gather, shoulder to shoulder and heart to heart to raise our banners for our Queen, our Country and our Lāhui.
