Pacification of Hawaii


Recommended Posts

Communications systems on the island had been severely damaged during the war rendering transmission to the outside by conventional means impossible. A jamming blanket had been thrown over the islands in order to fully cut off any remaining resistance from the other remnants of Tahoe as well as to veil Pacifician operations and policies within the island.

Tahoe had kept meticulous records of the island's Garrison,and while more than 40,000 were now dead, it was believed that more than 60,000 continued to move around on the island. In the first week that HP-00005 went into effect more than 60% of regular soldiers and 40% of junior officers reported to the Pacifican Military installations. Roughly 50% of the senior officers were uncovered by Pacifican investigators and deported to detainment facilities on the Pacifican Eastern frontier.

Of those who did not know of the directive, or did not comply with it, more than 60% of regular soldiers not in compliance were uncovered and brought to Pacifican military installations as well as 30% of non-complying Junior officers.

Troops were issued housing, new lightly armored uniforms, shuffled and issued to new companies and readied for deployment across Ouha while the new officer pool was developed. Of the Junior officer pool brought in by the directive approximately 30% were deemed unfit for service and were evacuated to the eastern frontier. The new pool comprised of 5000 Ethnic Irish Officers, 1000 Ethnic Pacific Islanders, and 6000 Ethnic Germans living in the islands. After having taken the oath of allegiance, the new pool was assigned, and the new Hawaiian office of military accountability under the direction of the Ministry of War dispatched trained Pacifician Officers as political liaisons charged with seeing to morale, rooting out disloyalty, and punishing incompetence and insubordination. These agents were attached to each of the Tahoan platoons to work, live, and operate with them.

Directive HP-00006 was also carried out with relatively high success. Nearly 80,000 small arms were collected voluntarily from the population ranging from pistols to hunting rifles, to full tactical assault weapons. Block to block sweeps of 10% of Honolulu turned up caches netting nearly 10,000 weapons. Outside of the cities large caches were uncovered by the 7th corp, uncovering more than 10000 small arms and associated ammunition. Operations and sweeps would continue for the weeks that followed.

[quote][b]Military Internal Directive HP-00007[/b]

Communications systems, and civilian infrastructure is to be reconstructed by the military authorities on the ground. All systems on the island are to be centralized and under the full control of the military authority.

With the rebuilding of Honolulu administrators, managers, and numerous other social scientists will be needed to fills the white collar offices that will soon be vacated.

All those who relocate will be compensated and offered state assistance in establishing themselves within their new homeland. Assistance is to be determined by the Ministry of the Interior.[/quote]

Portions of the Idle population had been organized into work gangs, and had already partially re-established partial internal communications to the islands. Road work was being done across the territories as well. The bombing campaigns had left many of the roads, runways, and all manner of concrete slab pitted and cratered. Teams were now working to dig up and fill in sections of the damaged roads and runways, rendering them again usable. Though there were complaints among the population about the nature of the labor impressment, as compensation was higher than average most dissent was quelled before it began.

More deserting officers and soldiers were located and screenings have continued.

Continued block by block sweeps of Honolulu have reached approximately 40% of the city, so far nearly 35,000 unsurrendered firearms have been seized.

Finally the settlement plans are commencing. They began with the issuance of Military directive HP-0114, which assigned more than 40,000 Pacifican citizens and professionals to vacant homes left behind by the deceased or otherwise dead Tahoan citizens. Moving assistance, and jobs were also found of them, and a timetable for total movement of six months was put into motion.

Directive HP-0115 ordered the building of over a hundred high rise living spaces around Honolulu, and the assignment of more than 200,000 Pacificans to the theoretical living quarters they provide. A time table of 2 years from construction and movement was also set forward. In addition 160,000 smaller settlements were scheduled for set up across Hawaii.

[quote][b]Military Internal Memo Concerning Directive HP-00572[/b]

In accordance with the re-settlement program nearly 40,000 highly educated and experienced citizens of Pacifica have been relocated to various all-Pacifican settlements, termed Pacifican Civil Zones, across Oahu, and Honolulu Popper. These areas are governed by Pacifican Civil law as set forth by Parliamentary law and are exclusive to those who hold Pacifican Citizenship. Pacifican Subjects living in the areas have been relocated to vacated areas of the larger Military Administrative Zone.

The Civil Zones were the first areas to be rebuilt and had sizable funding pored into the construction in order to create an atmosphere which would be considered acceptable to the settlement residents. They are principally walled communities sponsoring individual residences ranging from large manors to smaller personal homes. These have been individually sold to Pacifican settlers at near cost. The standard language of use within the settlements is the national Pacifican tongue Züritüütsch as established by Royal Order of the Magistrate Thomas Devereaux nearly half a century ago. These areas feature Pacifican Educational Institutions which cater to the residents of each Settlement. For wealthier residents a private day school was set up for primary schooling in Honolulu, which feeds to a boarding school operating out of Fiji.

Now that relocation of this first wave is complete, with nearly 360,000 more Pacificans expected to be moved within a year and a half, HP-000572 has been implemented. The Directive reads below.

[quote][b]Military Internal Directive HP-00572[/b]

First: policy level Bureaucrats who are non-citizens of Greater Pacifica are to be systematically purged from the bureaucracy over a period of three months. Their Jobs are to be filled by pre-selected Pacifican Citizens who are now living in the Settlements. Mid level bureaucrats are to be screened for disloyalty. Those who fail are to be purged and replaced by Citizens. All Bureaucrats who manage teams of other bureaucrats are to be replaced as well.

Bureacrats who are purged are to be evacuated to detention facilities on the Eastern Frontier of Pacifica.

Second: All official governmental business, all media, and all business in the private sector, is to be conducted in Züritüütsch, for the meantime Irish will be permitted and translations will be provided, but the process of immersing and assimilating the native population into Pacifican culture and language is to begin.

Third: Primary Public Education Facilities are to teach and instruct in Züritüütsch to the younger grades. In the older grades Züritüütsch secondary language classes will begin and will continue through secondary schooling. Ultimately all schooling will be conducted in Züritüütsch once the current wave is processed through and the youth is fully fluent. Educational Institutions will also instruct in Pacifican Culture, as well as political principles and concepts. Finally free educational classes will be held at community centers to instruct the older ages and groups in Züritüütsch as well.

A series of minor protests were staged at various settlement projects throughout Oahu. Several workers deserting their posts held homemade picket signs and marched outside of the project perimeter as native labor continued within to build the various buildings that would house over 360,000 Pacificans who would be relocating to take part in the industrial and financial ventures expected to develop with the help of State Investment. Protests initially were tolerated but when other workers began to desert their posts security forces peacefully dispersed the activists apprehending the leaders and more vocal members for questioning and possible evacuation to the eastern frontier. Regulated Media Organizations within the region were directed not to report on the gatherings, and security forces continued to silently and systematically shut down unauthorized reporting.

In the months following the issuance of Directive HP-00572, the transition had been conducted smoothly and without issue. The many Offices within the Hawaiian bureaucracy were systematically purged of Non-Citizen Policy Level Bureaucrats, and from there selectively purged of disloyal mid-level bureaucrats. Over night security teams would arrive and detain individuals selected for purge and replacements would arrive the following morning. Replacements were of the highest caliber of Pacifican Citizen, each was highly educated and fluent in both the official language of Pacifica, Züritüütsch, as well as the native Irish tongue. In addition to their own experience, those assigned as directors of various teams and offices were each given six weeks of 'social engineering' training, a brief and general primer of general psychology, sociology, and various other social sciences deemed relevant to the management of a foreign and possibly hostile team. In addition each was fully briefed on every member of their team having been supplied with thorough background checks of each staffer. Those replacing mid level bureaucrats were trained as intelligence gathering operatives who would covertly act as the eyes of the Security forces, reporting on their fellow co-workers, in addition to doing their job. So far the compartmentalized environment had prevented any one non-citizen, or non-citizen association from gaining a full picture of the situation, each only believing that the loss of their superiors and various co-workers was specific to their office.

Given the level of order and the speed at which the project was moving, Marc Stephens the Military Governor, was considering within the time frame of a few years elevating the Military Administrative Zone to a full province of the Realm granting citizenship to all of its inhabitants... However, that entirely depended on whether the present course continued.

As the rest of the world fought wars, and Pacifica balanced on the edge of war and peace itself, the resettlement program at Hawaii had been proceeding ahead of schedule. Across the islands civil zones had been established, various Pacifican communities had sprung up and various native Pacifican businesses had moved in to establish offices and resource development projects. While many had assumed it would take a two years to move the 400,000 Pacifican professionals it ultimately had only taken a year and a half.

The regional bureaucracy had been thoroughly cleansed and the upper level positions in all the corporate institutions had been staffed by the settlement dwellers. Work in rebuilding the infrastructure of the island had progressed greatly as well. The communications system had been fully restored though they now reflected a centralized and controllable model serving to enable the military governorship. The public roads had also been restored and new public transportation systems had been installed to allow easy travel within the various cities as well as between the various islands themselves. A hexlev connection had further been slated for construction to link the Hawaiian chain to the national system centralized out of Wellington.

Stephens had filed for approval to upgrade the islands and to grant full Citizenship to the people of the islands, all that remained was the approval of the King.

Years had passed since the establishment of the military governorship at Hawaii, and since that time the prosperity of its resident population had slowly increased. The re-settlement program had estranged many ex-Tahoans from the levers of power and wealth, but it had also accelerated the process of reconstruction, and assimilation.

On Oahu all physical reconstruction had been completed for some time, dispute this, the political and economic order had remained intact. The among the general population the mood was tense, and agitation was easy. The inequality of the administration from the exclusion laws limiting legal and economic access to those classified as 'citizens', to the segregation of the settlement system , to the language and culture difference between tahoans and pacificans bit at some nerve among the masses, and it was becoming more readily clear that emancipation and the inclusion of Hawaii as a province was becoming increasingly necessary.

Regardless, the King had made no such ruling as of yet, and in fact had been altogether silent on the state of his nation in general. Marc Stephens made note of the issue, as he sealed the large envelope containing his report. Timely action was necessary.
