The Chairman's Welcome
Greetings and Aloha,
Welcome to the website of the Hawaiian Kingdom Government presently operating within the occupied State of the Hawaiian Islands. Since United States invasion and overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom government on January 17, 1893, our Nation has been under prolonged occupation by the United States of America. Our web pages tell you about the range of activities carried out by the Hawaiian Government in developing our relations with the community of Nations in regards to the occupation and the profound economic benefits that arise from its exposure. Click here to download the Strategic Plan of the acting Council of Regency and its Supplement Remedial Plan of Compliance to International Humanitarian Law.
It is crucial to discern between the government and the country it represents. In international law, this separation of government from the State explains that when the United States illegally overthrew the Hawaiian government it did not overthrow the country. International law calls this situation belligerent occupation and regulated by international humanitarian law. The cornerstone of the law of occupation is for the occupying State to provisionally administer the laws of the occupied State, which the United States has failed to do. In this prolonged occupation, the world has been led to incorrectly believe that the Hawaiian Islands have become an incorporated territory of the United States, which is currently governed by the State of Hawai'i and its Counties.
The primary objective of the Hawaiian Kingdom Government is to expose the occupation of our nation and ensure compliance to international humanitarian law, which includes the 1907 Hague Conventions IV, the 1949 Geneva Convention, IV, the 1977 Additional Protocol I, and our domestic statutes, in order to provide a foundation for transition and the ultimate end of the occupation of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Article 43 of the 1907 Hague Convention IV mandates that the occupying State, being the United States of America, must administer the laws of the occupied State, being the Hawaiian Kingdom, and any deviation of this mandate is a violation of international law.
According to Article 42 of the 1907 Hague Covention, IV, effective control of the territory of the occupied State is a prerequisite that triggers the obligation to administer the laws of the occupied State as provided by Article 43. Presently, the State of Hawai'i and its Counties are in effective control of 80% of Hawaiian territory, the balance being under effective control of the United States military. It was by virtue of this effective control that the Council of Regency, by proclamation on June 3, 2019, recognized the State of Hawai'i and its Counties as the administration of the occupying State. Since its recognition, however, the State of Hawai'i has not transformed itself into a Military government recognizeable under international humanitarian law and continues to commit war crimes and human rights violations with impunity.
This failure to transform the State of Hawai'i into a Military government has prompted the Royal Commission of Inquiry to send a letter of correspondence on June 2, 2020, to the State of Hawai'i Attorney General Clare Connors. In the mean time, the Royal Commission will continue to fulfill its mandate of investigating war crimes and human rights violations and providing periodic reports with the purpose of holding perpetrators accountable under international humanitarian law and human rights law.
Me ka 'oia'i'o (Sincerely),
David Keanu Sai, Ph.D.
