The world is watching Hawaii, for better or worse

Kauai showed the rest of the state last week that they certainly stand with the protectors who remain atop Mauna Kea, and have now successfully halted construction, at least temporarily. Another peaceful protest took place Sunday morning in Kapaa with the “Mauna March,” which saw an organized march from Waikaea Canal (Lihi Park boat ramp) to Kapaa Beach Park. It was the fifth organized protest in a week that saw Mauna Kea dominate the headlines and weigh heavy on many minds, and will continue to do so until either the Thirty Meter Telescope is built, or until the developers cave into mounting pressure and decide to build the telescope elsewhere.
