KAHEA Board VP, Jon Osorio's op-ed on links between the Thirty-Meter Telescope litigation and BLNR's hearing on UH's lease renewal of Mauna Kea lands.
Mauna Kea advocates are seeking justice in Hawai‘i courts. Six plaintiffs have filed a Notice of Appeal in circuit court challenging the Board of Land and Natural Resources’ (BLNR) April 12th decision to grant the University of Hawai`i at Hilo a conservation district use permit (CDUP) to construct the world's second largest telescope, the Thirty-Meter Telescope (TMT) atop Mauna Kea.
Petitioner Kealoha Pisciotta of Mauna Kea Anaina Hou responds to Chad Babayan's letter stating that putting the Thirty-Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea is part of a "sacred mission."
Last month brought out the best in defenders of Hawai‘i‘s natural and cultural public trust resources. On February 12, 2013, the Board of Land and Natural Resources met in Hilo to hear final arguments from both sides of a "showdown" on the University of Hawai'i's permit to construct a Thirty-Meter Telescope (TMT) in the Mauna Kea summit area.
On Tuesday, the Board of Land and Natural Resources (BLNR) will hear final oral arguments from the parties on the construction permit for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). Please support us as we seek to protect Mauna Kea from further industrialization.
Ten years ago, Uncle Ku Ching began plans for a unique huaka‘i from sea level up to the summit of Mauna Kea. It would become a journey that changed the next decade of his life.
