The laws the TMT, DLNR, UH (the State of Hawaii), and PUEO have circumvented, attempted to circumvent and attempted to break and have broken manages 2,200,000 (2.2 million) acres of land in Hawai’i and these hearings and other litigations set lawful precedents for ALL in its management or mis-management.
MORE THAN HALF OF HAWAII’S TOTAL LAND AREA INCLUDING FISHERIES AND SEA GROUNDS, 4,123,000 ACRES (4.123 MILLION), IS MANAGED, SOME SAY MISMANAGED, BY THIS BROKEN SYSTEM MADE MORE CORRUPT BY THE STATE, CORPORATE ENDEAVORS AND YOUR AMBIVALENCE AS EACH DAY GOES BY.
Therefore any breaking or circumvention of the just laws remaining in this system dis-services us and future generations, further poisons our water and food supplies that have not been poisoned yet in perpetuity and violates the fiduciary duty the State has to each and every single one of us born and not born yet and of “Ko Hawaii”- no matter our ethnicity.
These 2.2 million acres (post leasing and subleasing to the military, DHHL, OHA, non-profit and “corporate endeavors” [like geothermal enterprise]) leaves 1.8 million acres in direct DLNR stewardship, non-partisan.
NEVERTHELESS 2.2 million acres fall under the designation of LAND and NATURAL RESOURCES and MUST, as accorded by law, be managed as such FOR REASONS OF HUMANITY AND SUBSISTENCE.
Much of these 2.2 million acres are conservation districts for the well being of the DIRECT subsistence of the 1,429,000 million people who live in Hawaii.
This includes the lawfully mandated fiduciary stewardship and pro-active defending against factors that compromise the heath, purity, accessibility and productivity of ALL of our watersheds, water aquifers, hunting and agricultural grounds, fisheries, reefs, forests, and sustainable ecologies.
Aside from the common public as beneficiaries to this stewardship we have the “State’s” constitution (Article 12) that further indoctrinates and validates “laws” set in absolute perpetuity by “Congressional” mandate, explicitly reaffirming what “Congress” has already finalized in law, namely that the “State” “shall protect all rights, customarily and traditionally exercised for subsistence, cultural and religious purposes” of Hawaiians.
THIS IS WHY MAUNA KEA IS AN ISSUE CONCERNING ALL OF HAWAIʻI.
Your DLNR lands are stewarded by all precedents set in this broken system and ever more corrupted process that was created to put stewardship, food supply and fresh water supply, fisheries, agricultural, and conservation lands and resources FIRST.
Get involved. Contest developments circumventing laws. REFORM LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCE MANDATES NOW ON BOTH “FEDERAL” AND “STATE” LEVELS. Hold entities claiming to wield jurisdiction ACCOUNTABLE.
The last edible fish and last drop of drinkable fresh water is at hand. Leave the generations to come the ability to live and thrive.
YOU CANNOT EAT OR DRINK MONEY.
