Mayor Harry Kim’s TMT plan offers nothing new, supporter says

SA: … Wallace Ishibashi Jr., a former Hawaiian Homes commissioner who is now senior adviser and cultural officer for the Office of Mauna Kea Management, said there is “nothing written in that plan that isn’t already written.”

‘Right now we’re back to square one with this mayor’s plan,” he said.

Ishibashi made his comments during a noon forum Friday at the state Capitol auditorium that was attended by about 100 people. Also speaking at the forum were Samuel Wilder King III, retired Judge Walter Heen and astrophysics student Makana Silva, who are all supporters of the TMT project….

The TMT opponents have blocked Mauna Kea Access Road to prevent site work for the telescope from starting near the summit, and King, Heen and Ishibashi all support using law enforcement to clear the road.

However, Ishibashi also said the protests have changed the political environment for Hawaiians.

“I hope somebody on the protectors’ side is coming up with some alternative ideas. If and when TMT doesn’t proceed, or if it does proceed, what we gonna do next? We have the power right now, we have the mana (power), the lahui (nation) is formed, so what are we going to do with that? Turn ’em off after TMT leaves?” he asked….

Aloha friends and family,

Please sign this petition if you support scholarships for Hawaii's keiki. 

Please sign this petition if you support diversifying Hawaii's economy away from tourism and the military. 

Please sign this petition if you think Hawaii's keiki deserve internships and jobs in high-tech industries.

That is what TMT offers, and that is what we will lose if TMT leaves Hawaii.

Please sign the petition to IMUA TMT!


Sam King
