Liberate Hawai'i

Liberate Hawai’i!

Renouncing and Defying the Continuing
Fraudulent U.S. Claim to the Sovereignty of Hawai'i





“If the government of Hawaii had not been illegally overthrown by the U.S. Marines through a classic act of Manifest Destiny and American‑style gunboat diplomacy, Hawaii would still be an independent sovereign nation today. Notwithstanding a series of clever illegal moves by the U.S. government, Hawaii cannot be considered a legally bona fide state of the United States. . . . In 1959 the U.S. falsely informed the U.N. that Hawaii had become the 50th state of the United States after an illegal plebiscite. . . . Jon Olsen . . . convincingly points out that the fraudulent claim of Hawaiian statehood is immoral, illegal, and unconstitutional.”
 – The late Thomas H. Naylor, Professor Emeritus of Economics, Duke University


“Jon Olsen’s Liberate Hawai’i is an important contribution to the literature about the occupation of Hawai’i. The evidence is indisputable that the takeover of Hawai’i in 1893 by a small group of American businessmen and the subsequent alleged annexation of Hawai’i by the U.S. were fraudulent. Olsen makes his case in clear, readable prose, and then examines the value and practicality of independence, citing the example of Lithuania, which was occupied for 50 years before regaining independence from the Soviet Union.”
 – Arnold Kotler, Publisher, Koa Press, Kihei, Hawai’i.


“Using a wide range of historical documents, anecdotal reports of trespasses, abuses, and oppressions, refreshingly humorous analogies, and moving personal stories of resistance and determination, Olsen has created a work of history, intirgue and injustice that informs and engages, is hard to put down–I read it in two days and then read it again–and may help to catalyze a movement in support of Hawaii's equivalent to the movements that freed the former Soviet republics to determine their own paths to the future.”
 – Ellen LaConte,
    author of Life Rules: Why So Much is Going Wrong Everywhere at Once & How Life Teaches Us to Fix It and the memoirs On Light Alone and Free Radical.


“Jon Olsen is a warrior of truth, proclaiming a vision of Hawaiian sovereignty. He is not alone. The Hawaiian Resistance that began sweeping across the islands forty years ago has become a storm of new consciousness. Where will it blow? Olsen charts that storm’s history and possibilities. For readers whose eyes can see a radically free Hawaii, here it is.”
 – Jim Douglass, author of JFK and the Unspeakable

 – Belva Ann Prycel,
    accomplished artist and author of memoirs Passages, Times and Tides and Water Tales
