Mālama 'Āina

From the frosty cinders of Puu Wekiu to the fringing reef of Molokai; from the summit bogs of Waialeale to the dry shrublands of Kanaloa; from the kuahiwi, kahawai, and moana; the kuleana to know and protect the pae aina is what this group is for.

My response to this morning's (Feb. 19) article in the Advertiser on Mauna Kea -
"Mauna Kea (MK) is a conservation zone - but one that a special interest (astronomy) values. However, the major entity - University of Hawaii/Institute for Astronomy (u.h./IfA) - has been remiss in malama-ing MK - and, in the recent NASA EIS - u.h./IfA has been found to be guilty of allowing the cumulative impact of telescope activities on Mauna Kea to have "substantial, adverse, and significant" impacts. Additionally, u.h./IfA has been found guilty of violations of its lease and has had to pay fines for its different feasances.

Should the fox be given the chicken coop?

BLNR, in violation of Section 17l of Hawaii Revised Statutes, allows the commercialization of MK by international entities who are subsidized by the Kingdom of Hawaii - whose stolen land it is.

Should the National Telescope of Japan - and scopes of many other nations - get a free ride (even though they may be "for profit" entities)? $Millions of ignored rents could make a difference in DOEd's budget plight."

Aloha kakou,
I am very concerned about the upcoming ceded lands case in federal court. I have heard about a rally on Jan. 17 in Oahu, but nothing about anything on the other islands. Anybody heard anything? I live Moku Nui and I like protest too.

Why is the world's biggest landfill in the Pacific Ocean?
