Protesters In Hawaii Fight to Protect What’s Theirs

Scientists are wanting to build a huge range telescope on top of Mauna Kea in Hawaii so they can have a better view of the sky. They say they need the highest point available, and there are many people in protest of having the telescope there because Native Hawaiians say it is a sacred place and should not be disturbed. Protests spread as far as L.A., Las Vegas, and even as far as New York as Hawaii’s people look to protect what is theirs.

In Las Vegas, Nevada, Hawaiians stood at the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign to show they are spreading the word across America in hopes the officials in higher offices can help stop the construction. They went as far as New York’s Union Square to spread their message by holding flags and signs in peaceful protest.

Though there is no violence, protesters have blocked the roads to try and stop the construction on the top of Mauna Kea. State officials said there were about 1,500 people at the beginning of the week, and by the weekend the numbers went to over 2,000 people. Hawaii’s Lt. Governor Josh Green said he does not know if it is possible, but there will have to be some sort of compromise for the project to move forward.

Hawaii’s Supreme Court ruled the permits for the construction to be valid, but there is a question if it is legal. Green stated after meeting for hours with the elders, “This is a cultural question and the question about an entire culture’s sense of self. I don’t care what the rulings were. It boils down to how the Hawaiian community perceives itself and what vision it has for the future. It’s time for a grand reconciliation with Hawaii’s host culture.”

Governor Green feels the state is taking a strong and positive stance for the U.S. to recognize the Native Hawaiians in this situation. He also stated the Native Hawaiians are not backing down like they did when the Hawaiian kingdom was overthrown in 1893. Green will also send out a request to Governor David Ige to fan out the flames of the situation by withdrawing the Hawaiian National Guard.

The protest has entered the Hawaiian tourism sector, and several businesses shut down for one day as a “tourism boycott” to protest and show support for the activist. Old Lahaina Luau on Maui canceled its nightly luau. There were a total of 450 people who received refunds for the cancelations. The director of public and cultural relations at Old Lahaina Luau, Kawika Freitas stated, “So we decided, you know what, it would really show our support to our employees and at the same time reflect our support to Hawaiian culture for us to have everyone be able to take off that day.”

Zipline rides were also canceled to the summit of Haleakala, which is the tallest peak in Maui. Hundreds of customers were affected. Jennifer Puha, who works in reservations stated, “We did have a few people that were a little bit upset, but 90 percent of the people were very understanding.” She also spoke of the company’s owner and on his behalf, “He feels that we have a duty to stand by doing the right thing.” Everything in the Hawaii tourism sector was expected to resume as normal on Tuesday.

Governor Ige closed the roads for the construction crews to pass thru, but the protestors have blocked the road until they get the answers they want. Nothing was done as of this time and only a few of the telescopes already on top the summit will be decommissioned. Officials in the local area and the people are still working to resolve the situation. Monday 13 lawmakers and county council members reached out to Governor Ige, but nothing was done to resolve the situation as of yet. Only other issues were discussed.

With only a few arrests made for blocking the roadways, there is no violence, and everything remains peaceful. Even with protestors traveling to the mainland of the U.S. cities, there is no violence or problems. Everyone has the right to protest about something they believe in, or stand up for what they feel is right. That is what makes America great! The Left and all the Liberals out there in the country should take notes and learn something from the great people of Hawaii. They should learn how to protest peacefully and not cry about everything if they cannot get their way.

  1. I think what you posted was very reasonable. However, think on this,
    what if you composed a catchier title? I ain’t saying your content is not good, but what if you added a title that
    grabbed people’s attention? I mean Protesters In Hawaii
    Fight to Protect What’s Theirs – Conservative And
    Free is kinda plain. You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article titles to grab people interested.

    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it
    might bring your website a little bit more interesting.

  2. My brother recommended I might like this web site.

    He was totally right. This post truly made my day.
    You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this information!

  3. Excellent blog here! Also your web site loads up fast!
    What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate
    link to your host? I wish my web site loaded up as fast as yours lol

  4. Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!

  6. America sucks! Decisions are made without the People’s consent. USA is a dictatorship of oligarchs. Those secretly ruling or controlling America’s government need to be toppled ASAP.

  7. Clearly Hawaiians are morons. All you have to do is look at the POS they put in the CONgress to see this is so.

  8. I am proud to see my fellow Countrymen stand up in peaceful protest, for what they believe.
    I am a 72 year old “Student of American Freedoms, our Bill of Rights, and of course, our U.S. Constitution”
    The culture and the Beliefs of the many thousand year old Hawaiian People should be respected in this situation. What they consider “Sacred Ground” should be respected. The spiritual strength of the Hawaiian People is showing itself now, and I hope they will not be overwhelmed by the many legal obstacles ahead.
    In that case, I hope they are planning an “International Day of Hawaiian Spiritual Awareness”, so that People all over the World who want to protect their own Ancient Ways, will draw together to support the Hawaiian Cause, while forming personal bonds with their own countrymen, for the perpetuation of “their” Ancient Cultural Values.
    Please let me know how I can help in every one of these Social Causes.

  9. I do agree with their protest. I usually am not in line with the “tree huggers, etc.!” but this situation has a longer history and a deep cultural factor that should be acknowledged. My parents lived in Hawaii years ago (my Dad was a Pearl Harbor survivor) and Mom got pregnant with me just before they shipped her back to the 48. I traveled to Hawaii on business for many years and feel a kinship with the those that live there.

  10. This situation of course is the fault of the Socialist Democratic Party’s obstructionist tactics to attempt to overthrow President Trump because American citizens have abandoned their corrupt anti-American policy’s and are now voting Republican. These socialists are promising anything and everything to these immigrants to get their vote even if it’s an illegal vote

  11. I agree with the native Hawaiians.. protect this scared place.

  12. The Government needs a “better view ofthe sky”???? GMAFKNBRK!!!!! They have satellites in every possible location! What are they REALLY after? I would advise folks to try and figure out what the global coordinates of that locationhave to do with Freemasonry. Sound crazy? Get into the symbolism of Freesmasonry and even look at why certain buildings are located where they are, why they are architected the way they are. It’s an unbelievale scheme that goes back centuries. I never paid attention to the ancients and the occult, and now I find – threw the revelations of the pedophile rings – – that making that obscure and dumbing down the world has had its nefarious purposes.

  13. Don’t touch any of the Hawaiian Islands. Leave them as they are. They are beautiful and have so much history. Don’t build anything on any of their volcanoes or craters. This land needs to be protected.

  14. So why the fuck don’t they build the telescope at some other peak in the US. Mauna Kea is only 4.207 feet above sea level. Denali is 20,310 ft above sea level. Hell, Charleston Peak is 11,916 ft above sea level. They just want to be in beautiful Hawaii is all. Fucking assholes.

  15. Aloha for the article to help spread our message.
    It has been a long journey and the people of Hawai’i are so tired of our state government ignoring these very important issues.
    You do not need to be Hawaiian by blood to appreciate our paradise has been lost to government corruption, and developers and politicians greed.
    As your article stated there will be several decommissioned observatories, there are a total of 14. There are no plans to remove these facilities…..they will just sit there!!!!!
    All Hawaiian Island’s water supply comes from the mountains. So these decommissioned observatories will sit in perpetuity to pollute Mauna Kea.
    The TMT Observatory will add 1000’s of gallons of pollutants into the mountain with their massive underground sewage and waste tanks.
    Mauna Kea does not need this massive observatory built as there is space in the Canary Islands just as suitable with better infrastructure and has been more than willing to accept this huge telescope for scientist to see beyond the stars.
    The Hawaiian culture and her people’s identities have been suppressed and ignored for far too long.
    Yes…..the people of the world could learn a lot if they “Lived Aloha”

  16. The telescope should be made an honorary Hawaiian and therefore would be entitled to be installed on top of Mauna Kea! There, solved it for you Hawaii, Aloha, and you are welcome!

  17. Leave it alone build your telescope some place else, these are sacred grounds don’t defile it

  18. O agree with the people pf the Big Island of Hawaii. I have spent many years as a friend on that great Island

  19. Big mistake to add these islands to the US. Nothing but a bunch of ungrateful victims living off handouts and despising the tourists that visit and drop money.

  20. We are never going to leave this planet. How many worthless, expensive experiments must take place before we realize this? Nature will take care of “overpopulation” on Earth. Human beings must realize that Heaven is our true home, and physical being on Earth is a journey. Those who do it right will have eternal bliss. Those who hurt others will not. What do these people hope or expect to learn or prove by looking far into space? We KNOW that God created “the heavens and the Earth”. How He did it we have yet to learn. But I, for one, am looking forward to ASKING HIM! God Willing.

  21. Always be reminded that the government is, and always will be… Of, for and by the people. Member of the American Legion, and supporting the peoples rights against tyranny.

  22. maybe Hawiians should stop voting for liberal anti American demoncrats

  23. Hawaii is a very BEAUTIFUL place to visit and live if you wish. I agree with MAUI, my favorite ISLAND, that they don’t need this telescope on the top of the Volcano at all. SO move it some where else!

  24. What the f*** is wrong with this country letting all these sorry-ass son of a b**** has in to this country they’re not here to do to help the build to create the here to take they don’t love America the only guy here because a stupid ass Democrats give him anything they want and take away from the Working Class People this doesn’t change very very soon we will have a war inside this country that has never been seen before people don’t believe that they better open your damn eyes people are tired a thing raped murdered taking advantage of are these low-life scumbags Obama was the Antichrist are about blacks he didn’t care about why he didn’t care about Spanish only thing he cared about was destroying this country with his mother Muslim Brotherhood he’s almost done it

  25. The benifit of the telescope is far more valuable to Hawaians and Americans and citizens through the world than “keeping” thier “sacried religion, culture, etc”. All those religious & culture practices have CHANGED, over the decades, and, in many cases, have kept many of the sub cultures back in the premitive cultures that cannot govern themselves. Be sure, When they have distruction via storms, volcanos, other tradgies, They will be calling & begging for help! R. St. Romain

  26. If we are to have faith(s), it should be in the god that they are represented by.
    Church building or sacred ground are only a fraction of what the totality of
    what that deity is or should be. Structures come and go over time. They fall
    by the way side, some times by nature or often by the hand of man. Ether way,
    the faith and belief prevail and move forward. If not, the original belief system
    was not worthy of its belief system.

  27. I needed to thank you for this great read!! I definitely
    loved every little bit of it. I’ve got you bookmarked to look at new things you post…
