Protect Mauna Kea!

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

    PROTECT THE SACRED!

       On Wednesday, June 24th construction of the $1.5 Billion Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Mauna Kea was again halted by more than 700 people standing together to protect the sacred temple from further desecration. 13 telescopes currently exist on the Mauna.

It was an awesome gathering on the Mauna. Following prayers and chants, keiki gave ti-leaf lei to the police and exchanged hugs to start the day. How good is that. Not a dry eye around. Mahalo to all who came in a spirit of “Kapu Aloha” to stand for the sacred above dollars.

      12 more protectors were arrested June 24th in addition to the 31 arrested on April 2nd. Several of those arrested in April are requesting to engage in Ho’oponopono (an Hawaiian cultural process to make right) with Governor David Ige, TMT President Henry Yang, University of Hawaii President David Lassner, and DLNR Deputy Director, Kekoa Kaluhiwa and/or their representatives. The request is supported by Hawaii County Prosecutor, Mitch Roth, and Hawaii District Court Judge Barbara Takase.

Ho’oponopono Not More Desecration!

It was an awesome day on the Mauna. Such pono spirit of kapu aloha to protect the sacred mauna. The keiki gave ti-leaf lei to the police and exchanged hugs to start the day. How good is that. Not a dry eye around. Mahalo to all involved.

#‎BREAKINGNEWS‬: Hawaii DLNR (Department of Land and Natural Resources) agents just informed the hundreds of protestors who have gathered to prevent the Thirty Meter Telescope construction, that officers & TMT workers will be turning around and no longer asking anyone to leave or make any further arrests. More than 700 people gathered to stand in what they say is protection of a sacred Native Hawaiian space. Seven hours after protestors began lining up to prevent construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope on the summit of Mauna Kea, only 10 people have been arrested and the TMT crew only made it about 1.5 miles up the road.
