Construction to resume for TMT, hula protest held
WAIMANALO, Hawaii —Construction is now set to restart on the Thirty Meter Telescope atop Mauna Kea amidst continued protest.
The TMT International Observatory Board released a statement Saturday saying that construction on the controversial TMT telescope would resume after a two month work stoppage.
We contacted the public relations firm that issued the announcement, but were told no one was available to comment further.
Those who oppose the telescope were more than willing to voice their opinion after hearing the news.
"We intend to reinforce the block that is in place and continue to bring people up if they remove them for arrest," said Kamahana Kealoha, a TMT protestor.
