Pineapple Revolution

Native Hawaiian group storms historical palace and bars the gates in downtown Honolulu.  The Hawaiian Kingdom Government blocked the gates of the building which sits next to the capital.

 

Apparently it's a relatively peaceful protest and the protesters claim they will go with authorities willingly.  The protesters do not recognize Hawaii as a U.S. state.  Hawaii entered the union in 1959 as the 50th state.

I don't think this going to turn into anything but I just wanted to be the first to call it a pineapple revolution.

A Google of the four different web sites claiming to belong to various groups calling themselves the Hawaiian Kingdom Government were down:

http://www.hawaiiankingdom.org/

http://www.hawaiiankingdom.org/govt-reestablished.shtml

http://www.higovt.org/

http://www.hawaii-gov.net/

However the Hawaiian Independence Blog is up and active and claiming to receive email from on scene witnesses.  They list www.higovt.org as the preferred site of the group, but the "Latest News" column of that site does not mention the current action.

 

No word as yet as how long before the CNN buss will be on the scene, or how long before China will use the incident to downplay Tibet <g>.

Some of these web  site seem to be coming back up and this may be due to a high traffic load on undersea cables (I'm speculating).
