David Keanu Sai appeared Aug. 10, before the United Nations on behalf of the acting government of the Kingdom of Hawai'i. He presented to 173 member states of the U.N. General Assembly a Protest and Demand, including materials documenting U.S. breaches of international law against the Kingdom of Hawai'i. See the documentation in Sai's doctoral dissertation along with the Protest and Demand at www.hawaiiankingdom.org.
Sai told the U.N. that Great Britain and France in a joint proclamation Nov. 28, 1843, had recognized the Kingdom of Hawai'i as an independent sovereign nation state. The kingdom's sovereign independence has never been compromised by an act of war, nor been relinquished by treaty (see a Hawaiian historical video at vimeo.com/14074723).
The United States of America can show no authority for its presence in the sovereign jurisdictional territory of the Kingdom of Hawai'i, except for a U.S. internal public policy annexing the Kingdom of Hawai'i--a policy with no effect on an independent sovereign.
This information affirms that the Kingdom of Hawai'i is a co-equal sovereign alongside the U.S.A. Therefore, Native Hawaiians cannot consider themselves a nation within the U.S. nation, and may decide more clearly whether to participate in the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission unveiled July 20 (see kanaiolowalu.org).
On behalf of all deceased Hawaiian patriots of various ethnicities, who loved the Kingdom of Hawai'i so much as to move us to declare: Ua mau ke ea o ka 'aina i ka pono.
