WHEREAS, citizenship is synonymous with paying taxes, I pay no tax to the UNITED STATES of AMERICA;
WITH REGARD TO HAWAII, by virtue of "UNITED STATES PUBLIC LAW 103-150", the U.S. has legally confessed to the international crime of conspiracy by overthrowing the "sovereign and independent Kingdom of Hawaii";

WITH REGARD TO SO-CALLED "TERRORISM", we must distinguish between true terrorism and politically defined terrorism. The true definition follows:

· terrorism, n. The use or threat of violence to intimidate or cause panic, esp. as a means of affecting political conduct. Black's Law Dictionary

WHEREAS, I stand with the Cuban people and they're highly respected and popular leader, Fidel Castro, for whom I have tremendous respect;

WHEREAS, the traitorous actions of the U.S. Federal Government through the passage of the "Patriot Act" has destroyed all civil rights the UNITED STATES Constitution and Bill of Rights were intended to protect;
WHEREAS, the UNITED STATES serves as a model for the "New World Order," and is now officially a "Police State" and will likely be under full "Martial Law" during George W. Bush's presidential term;
WHEREAS, the UNITED STATES has officially declared by law, that the President reserves the right to use "all means necessary and appropriate" to bring about the release from captivity of U.S. or allied personnel detained or imprisoned by or on behalf of the ICC. Literally interpreted, the U.S. has threatened to invade the Netherlands, a comparatively free and democratic society, should it employ the mandates of Public International Law;
WHEREAS, a world that allows the U.S. to "Lead" a so-called "War on Terror" in the name of "Freedom" and "Democracy" and the "Rule of Law" dooms itself to increasing terror, murder, and self-destruction;
WHEREAS, the UNITED STATES has no regard for its own laws or International Law, unless it works to the benefit of the U.S.;
WHEREAS, the UNITED STATES fears more than anything a mass awakening of human consciousness and a true and equal application of the "Rule of Law";
WHEN THE TRUTH BE KNOWN, George W. Bush will be identified for what he is, a traitor. A traitor whose will to power caused him to sacrifice his own people for untold profits through the Carlyle Group and oil interests. A traitor who by legitimate law, and even his own fascist laws, could be imprisoned for life or executed for high treason and mass murder;

WHEREAS, I publicly charge George Bush Sr. and the UNITED STATES Government with "War Crimes" for its systematic Human Experimentation on myself and 600,000 other "Servicemembers" through the use of Pyridostigmine Bromide pills, Anthrax and Botulinum Toxoid vaccines, and exposure to Depleted Uranium during the "Gulf War";
WHEREAS, I publicly charge George Bush Sr. and the UNITED STATES Government with "Crimes Against Humanity" for its systematic use of Depleted Uranium (DU) in Iraq, the Balkans, and Puerto Rico, with full knowledge of the hideous biological affects of DU radiation exposure on the health of the civilian population;
WHEREAS, I and others have proof of every charge made within and I challenge any and all persons, especially within the U.S. Government, to a public debate on these accusations;
WHEREAS, the current absence of a permanent international court with the power to address legitimate 20th Century Crimes demands that the newly formed ICC fulfill this necessary role. Should the ICC neglect to do this, myself and others will work for the formation of an independent tribunal to file legal charges against the UNITED STATES for the above crimes, and more;
WHEREAS, as a peaceful, lawful person I pre-emptively denounce any future criminal charges against myself as a political attack intended to silence me;
WHEREAS, I denounce true terrorism and will never be a terrorist;
TO THE CITIZENS OF WESTERN NATIONS, it is our fear, inaction, and blind ignorance of propaganda that has thus far led us to endorse (through acquiescence) the UNITED STATES in "Leading" the so-called "War on Terror";
TO THE CITIZENS OF NON-WESTERN NATIONS, some of us from the West are truly ashamed of the historical and ongoing crimes of our nations and are committed to a process of true justice for all past and present crimes;
REGARDING POLITICAL ASYLUM IN HOLLAND, I was compelled to leave my home, family and Nation of Hawaii in order to avoid imprisonment and continue my role in the peaceful and lawful struggle for Hawaiian Independence and Global Justice;
WHEREAS, UNITED STATES Judge, David L. Fong, unlawfully issued an $11,000 Bench Warrant for my arrest on November 30, 2000;

WHEREAS, the action of the dishonorable Judge Fong, a sworn agent of the U.S., is a direct attempt by the UNITED STATES to intimidate and punish me primarily for my participation within and Allegiance to the Lawful Hawaiian Nation;
WHEREAS, this arrest warrant remains active to this day, in spite of its unlawful issuance and several attempts by myself to effect a legal remedy;
WHEREAS, I am not a criminal and am not fleeing any lawful prosecution;
In Recognition of the Above Facts, I acknowledge the nation of ones birth as an involuntary consequence, not duty. Therefore, I Kenneth Roy Nichols have Lawfully Renounced my UNITED STATES citizenship in accordance with U.S. Law, Public International Law and Human Rights Law, in favor of Statelessness; effective March 1, 2001;
WHEREAS, I have legally and voluntarily Renounced my U.S. citizenship and relinquished my US passport, # 120689595, to officials of UNITED STATES Consulates, twice (Us Consul Steve Giegerich - Vancouver 3-1-01/US Vice Consul Carl Risch - Amsterdam 11-26-01);

WHEREAS, I hold no US Social Security card;

"Power to the People"



The State Department document to the left was signed by Mr. Nichols on his March 1, 2001 renunciation in Vancouver, Canada. Of special note is line 1, 2, & 4, where it clearly states that he has the "right to renounce" US citizenship and that he will become a "stateless" person if he has no other citizenship upon renunciation. Nichols has now signed this legal document twice along with relinquishing his passport.

citizen, n. 1. A person who, by either birth or naturalization, is a member of a political community, owing allegiance to the community and being entitled to enjoy all its civil rights and protections; a member of the civil state, entitled to all its privileges. - Black's Law Dictionary - Seventh Edition

stateless person. Int'l law. A natural person who is not considered a national by any country. - Webster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary

"All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development." - 2200A (XXI) International Covenant on Civil & Political Rights (ICCPR)

"But every man is born free, and therefore the son of a citizen, when arrived at the age of reason, may consider whether it is well for him to join the society in which he happens to be by birth. If he does not find that it is to his advantage to remain in it, he has the right to leave it…" - The Law of Nations (International Law)

UPDATE JULY 25 2002 - "With the State Department document to the right, the US defies International Law, Human Rights Law, United States Federal Law & specifically Public Law 103-150 and provides yet more evidence that citizenship is tantamount to modern slavery. This critical document exposes the tyrannical nation/state position that human beings are property and human rights are worthless while claiming citizenship. I hereby reaffirm my lawful rejection of all US claims to ownership of myself and my political status and I demand that all those who honor law recognize my de jure status as a stateless human being." - Ken Nichols O'Keefe

"Whereas, on January 14, 1893, John L. Stevens, the United States Minister assigned to the sovereign and independent Kingdom of Hawaii conspired with a small group of non-Hawaiian residents of the Kingdom of Hawaii including citizens of the United States, to overthrow the indigenous and lawful Government of Hawaii…" UNITED STATES PUBLIC LAW 103-150 (signed into law by President Clinton Nov. 1993)

"Whereas the indigenous Hawaiian people never directly relinquished their claims to their inherent sovereignty as a people or over their national lands to the United States, either through their monarchy or through a plebiscite or referendum…" -UNITED STATES PUBLIC LAW 103-150

"The logical consequences of this resolution would be independence." - Senator Slade Gorton on Public Law 103-150

"The Rule of postliminium is that by which the persons and property captured by the enemy are restored to their former status on coming again into the power of the Nation to which they belong." - The Law of Nations (International Law)

The NOTICE to the right was posted in the legal section of Hawaii's largest newspaper on September 9, 2001. In addition it was legally served to US State and Federal Officials in accordance with International Law. The United States was thereby provided the opportunity to "Object" to the Kingdom of Hawaii's declaration claiming the "the authority to reclaim any and all land within its territorial bounaries." The United States cannot and has not objected because it fears this claim reaching a legitimate international court. This NOTICE proves that the United States cannot lawfully challenge the existence of nor the inherent right to sovereignty of the Hawaiian Nation. I am proud to have sworn my allegiance to this nation and this nation alone.

I hereby state that any "accidents" that may occur to the leaders of this nation or myself is no accident and is almost assuredly at the hands of the cowards within or loyal to the CIA. - Ken Nichols

An Act concerning the Rights of American Citizens in foreign States & the Right of Expatriation
"Whereas the right of expatriation is a natural and inherent right of all people, indispensable to the enjoyment of the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and whereas in the recognition of this principle this government has freely received emigrants from all nations, and invested them with the rights of citizenship; and whereas it is claimed that such American citizens, with their descendants, are subjects of foreign states, owing allegiance to the governments thereof; and whereas it is necessary to the maintenance of public peace that this claim of foreign allegiance should be promptly and finally disavowed: Therefore,"

"Be it enacted by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That any declaration, instruction, opinion, order, or decision of any officers of this government which denies, restricts, impairs, or questions the right of expatriation, is hereby declared inconsistent with the fundamental principles of this government." - United States Federal Law - 15 Statutes At Large, Chapter 249 (Section 1), enacted July 27, 1868

United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights - "Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,..."

International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights - "The States Parties to the present Covenant,
Considering that, in accordance with the principles proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations, recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,


International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights - PART I - Article 1 - 1. "All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development."

The Law of Nations - "There are certain cases in which a citizen has the absolute right, based upon reasons drawn from the very compact of civil society, to renounce allegiance to his country and abandon it."

Such as, "If the majority of a Nation, or the sovereign who represents it, seek to establish laws in matters to which the compact of society can not oblige all citizens to submit, those to whom the laws are repugnant have the right to withdraw from the society and settle elsewhere."
