HALEAKALA: Mirror delivered to giant solar telescope despite Native Hawaiian protest | Science | AAAS

Police remove protest organizer Kaleikoa Kaeo after an attempt to disrupt the delivery of a 4-meter telescope mirror to Haleakalā.

“Protesters chanted and sang in Hawaiian as they awaited the convoy, marching in crosswalks across the road. Organizer Kaleikoa Kaeo said he wanted the group’s peaceful opposition to stand in contrast to any show of force from police. “When in doubt, chill out,” he says. At the same time, he reminded protesters what was at stake. “If we cannot protect our sacred places, don’t even think you’re free,” he told them.”
