Native Hawaiians blockade historic palace

May 1, 2008

This makes my heart warm.

As people have conversations on line and off about the role of allies/ how to be an ally/ the importance of coalition and solidarity/ etc., I’m glad to see that there is a group of people that aren’t trying to work with whitey anymore– they’re just taking back what is theirs.

Fuck yes.

    I loved this.

    I have visited Hawaii once and in general I found a lot of Hawaiians I met to be very political and still upset over their colonization. They had this fantastic public access show and I remember very clearly them saying “We are NOT americans, we will NEVER be americans and we DON’T want to be americans.”

    I’m feeling pretty done with Whitey myself these days.
