METRO IN BRIEF
About 2,000 Hawaiians and their supporters will be in Washington this weekend for a prayer vigil and "Aloha March" to mark the 100th anniversary of the annexation of the Hawaiian Island. Organizers of the demonstration say they hope to focus attention on the plight of native Hawaiians whose lands were seized and to urge the return of Hawaii to an independent sovereign government.
The demonstrators will gather on the U.S. Capitol grounds at noon today for a 24-hour prayer vigil. Tomorrow, they will march to Lafayette Square for a Hawaiian Rights Movement rally.
