One of the purposes of the ”demonstration” was to “honor those who resisted to be annexed to the United States by signing the Ku’e Anti-Annexation Petition in 1897 & 1898.”

The other reason for the “demonstration” was also to expose how the United States has been lying about how they acquired Hawai’i by a “treaty of annexation” for over 112 years now. There was no treaty of annexation.

It’s refreshing to see that people advocate truth… instead of perpetuating lies.

What does that say about the values that are instilled in children?
I prefer that they be taught the truth and to be honest instead of perpetuating lies.
