Kue petition names to be displayed in Washington

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The names of more than two thousand people who more than a century ago signed petitions opposing the U.S. annexation of Hawaii will be displayed this month in the heart of Washington, D.C.

The names will be displayed on the center panel of the National Mall next Monday and Tuesday.

Honolulu-based Ka Lei Maile Alii Hawaiian Civic Club is sponsoring the exhibit.

Nearly 40,000 people signed Kue petitions opposing annexation in 1897. The U.S. went ahead and annexed the islands in 1898, five years after businessmen backed by U.S.-Marines overthrew the Hawaiian monarchy.

The civic club is also sponsoring a historical reenactment of a meeting of Hawaiian patriots that will be performed at the National Museum of the American Indian on Sunday and at a Washington hotel on Tuesday.
