(BIVN) – Attendees at Monday’s forum about the multi-national RIMPAC military exercise got an update on Ka ʻAhahui Hawaiʻi Aloha ʻĀina o ko Hawaiʻi Pae ʻĀina, or the The Hawaiian Patriotic League of the Hawaiian Islands.
Isaac “Paka” Harp, Vice-President of the Hawaiian Patriotic League, gave an hour-long presentation detailing the history of the organization, dating back to 1893, its dissolution, and its recent restoration in March 2017.
“The object of this League shall be to affirm the continuity of Hawaiian independence; to restore Hawaiian national identity; to exert all peaceful and legal efforts to secure for the Hawaiian People and Citizens their Civil Rights; and to ensure that the United States of America complies with international humanitarian law,” reads the Ka ʻAhahui Hawaiʻi Aloha ʻĀina website.
The forum was organized by the Malu ‘Aina Center for Non-violent Education & Action, which is also demonstrating against RIMPAC at various locations around Hilo this month.
