I was often by Kekuni’s side at meetings at the State Capitol during 2008 and 2009, especially with regard to the controversial 50th Anniversary of Statehood Commission where he denounced the celebration due to the US Occupation of Hawai`i.

Chelsea Manning Art Portrait

Chelsea Manning Art Portrait by Michael Daly Artist 2015

When those in media, business and government who so deceptively and deliberately lead the wrongful invasions there during early 2000s, and unleashed a false War on Terror – and while similar criminal leaders of authority carry on these gross acts against International Law today – while they are free, and free to profit in this way, and Manning is confined to jail, then lawlessness prevails and the terms ‘leader’ and ‘authority’ are misapplied.

Timely Conniving – Public Holidays, Public Statues and the US Hawaiian Occupation

Independence Day is probably the most important of public holidays in the Hawaiian Kingdom calendar since 1843 when King Kamehameha III proclaimed it. But since the USA invasion and occupation the day has been suppressed. The imposed USA Thanksgiving Day holiday overshadows it.

Public Forum, a Safe Zone, a Declaration for Free Speech

Public Protection - the Public Forum is acknowledged lawfully for expressive rights.

The Public Forum safe zone campaign is falling under a general public protection declaration that also includes a sister campaign for a safe zone for homeless. The latter is called the Emergency Shelter Safe Zone. Individuals or groups can use one or both signs to display in a public place where they declare there rights to free speech and/or emergency rest. People can declare that they’re in a safe zone to city and police workers who approach them. If they are arrested, harassed or have property searched or taken they will be able to register the incident on line for a common law suit. The registration site is not yet active but I will link to it when available.

Free Yousef Nadarkahani on Iran Death Row Execution

Iranian Pastor Yusef Nadarkhani

I am sorry that the USA has, this past week chosen to execute a black man, Troy Davis, in what appears to be nothing more than a prejudicial state attack on it’s people, predominantly based on race, but nevertheless an attack on humanity. Don’t let your country be shamed in this same way too. I am opposed to the death penalty.

MOCHA Mocker: Gaza Children’s Art Cancelled at Museum

Satirical art by Michael Daly based on MOCHA Logo, Museum of Children's Art, Oakland, California after the museum's board cancelled it's exhibition of artwork by Gaza children. Many people close to the planned exhibition accuse the museum of bending to groups and individuals with USA/Israel bias.

This culture [of suppression] is rooted within the same entities that support the deliberate killing of civilians in Gaza… MOCHA appeased it’s most debased elements and at the same time failed it’s most worthy supporters. Shame.

APEC Summit 2011-Honolulu Police announce “Operation Sidewalk Sweeper”

Music entertainers and balloon angel at Waikiki's nightly sidewalk fest on Kalakaua Avenue.

The corporate assault on free speech is an attack on individuality and the basic right to produce expression and income that is not controlled by corporations. This is not a matter of street artists taking consumer money from business tenants because street artists manufacture visitor interest and increase overall spending in Waikiki. Similar colour and carnival street promotions such as block parties and Aloha Festival events can run the taxpayer $500k and up. Presently the artists and entertainers are free every nite, except carnival nites – yet still abused, ignored, criminalized and made unwelcome.

The Art of Truth and Marriage in the Military

It sounds awfully complex that simple truth in the military affects the very fabric of the institution. Again, this aspect of truth in Government goes to the heart of why Bradley Manning is subject to punishment and inhumane treatment in solitary confinement in a U.S. brig without a trial.
