WHO: You, your 'ohana, and friends in RED shirts.
Inform the public of the magnitude of this case and the THREAT IT POSES TO NATIVE HAWAIIAN JUSTICE/RIGHTS.
This could prove to be the MOST DAMAGING case on Hawaiian Rights EVER. An adverse ruling could cripple reconciliation efforts, severely diminish Native Hawaiian rights, and lay the foundation for dismantling Native Hawaiian programs.
This is a NON-DIVISIVE issue - a U.S. Supreme Court decision has negative implications for our entire community and EVERY Hawaiian.
The U.S. Supreme Court could misinterpret and reduce the significance of the Apology Resolution, which recognizes the illegality of the overthrow and supports Native Hawaiian rights.
The U.S. Supreme Court has the potential to adversely impact the way the people of Hawai'i deal with issues on a local level. Unlike the State Supreme Court, the U.S. Supreme Court does not know Hawai'i's history and will not be affected by the resolution of local issues.
Governor Lingle's action is wholly inconsistent with her previous support of Native Hawaiians. She must be urged to WITHDRAW this appeal IMMEDIATELY!
