Mauna Kea protests continue

program date: 
Thu, 04/23/2015
A four-week long protest which has halted construction of  the proposed TMT or Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea on the big island of Hawaii continues with several new developments this week.
On Tuesday activists took to the streets of Honolulu to bring their message to the centers of state and commercial power in the archipelago.
The thirty-meter telescope would be housed in a massive eighteen-story high structure atop the highest mountain in Hawaii.
It’s a project of the TMT Observatory Corporation, a joint venture of Institutions  from the United States, Canada, China, India and Japan.
There are already thirteen other telescopes sited on the mountain, which have also drawn opposition  from Native Hawaiians and environmentalists. 16:09 minutes (14.78 MB)

Native Hawaiian protestors have halted construction of a massive 18-story telescope on their sacred, life-giving Mauna Kea. While the protest is about stopping the continued desecration and damage to a mountain central to their culture, beliefs and traditions, it is also about an ongoing movement for independence and decolonization. Filmmaker Anne Keala Kelly has been documenting and involved in this struggle for many years. 58:50 minutes (80.79 MB)
