Aug 27th @ 8:45a the supreme court hearing will be in the judiciary building, located behind the Kamehameha statue. We will find out if the judge will put a stop to the construction of TMT, due to lack of proper permits/permission.
Formerly known as the Advanced Technology Solar Telescope, the Inouye Telescope has been under construction since 2012 and is about 80 percent built at the University of Hawaii’s Science City at the Haleakala summit.
The project, planned for completion in 2019, is expected to be the world’s most powerful solar telescope, giving scientists an unprecedented view of our nearest star that could lead to better protection for the power grid and communication and weather satellites.
A small group of Native Hawaiians has been fighting the telescope for a decade, claiming the Haleakala summit is sacred. They have appealed their case to the state’s highest court, which is now weighing the merits of a challenge to the project’s state-issued conservation use permit.
Later Thursday many of the protest leaders appeared before the Office of Hawaiian Affairs board of trustees, which was meeting in Wailuku.
Kanuha said he asked the trustees to take a formal stand against the Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea and to support the campaign against the Maui telescope. He also asked trustees to back off on efforts to use state funds to help form a Hawaiian government.
He said the Hawaiian people are now waking up to mobilize for their sovereign rights, and that OHA needs to support this renaissance.
