Please correct any errors in interpreting the policies and events with the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) and the giant telescope project on Mauna Kea. Apparently the OHA has rescinded the resolution that supported the telescope project plan, however that does not mean that the telescope will not be built as planned…?
I think this means that the community opposition has effectively postponed the telescope project. The nuanced official stance of the OHA is that OHA does not oppose the telescope project…
Please see information below If you have not heard or read that there is currently a very passionate grassroots Hawaiian movement to end the “prolonged occupation by the United States of America“. ~Ron

Makes you wonder how Hawaii’s 41% Asian population lines up on this issue. Although Japanese residents only comprise about 16% of Hawaii’s total population, they occupy most of the managerial and administrative positions – at least according to friends who have lived there.
I think it will be interesting how Hawai’i navigates the many interests of their diverse ethnic communities as well as the continued U.S. occupation disguised as statehood.

5-14-15… “War Crimes on Mauna Kea Reported to Canadian Federal Authorities”
“War crimes were alleged to have been committed by TMT International Observatory, LLC, (TMTIO), which has a Canadian partner, the Association of Canadian Universities for Research in Astronomy. Canada’s government also recently committed $250 million dollars for the construction of the thirty-meter telescope by TMTIO on Mauna Kea.
[Kaho’okahi Kanuha] ““We met with two Constables who were criminal investigators of the RCMP’s Sensitive and International Investigations unit at their headquarters,” said Kanuha. “They fully understood what we were saying about war crimes and they took it very seriously.
“The war crimes were reported in accordance with the Canadian Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act (2000) and international humanitarian law.”

The war crimes were reported in accordance with the Canadian Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act (2000)
and international humanitarian law. Ka‘iama stated, “I am filing this complaint, on behalf of my client, Mr. Chase Michael Kaho‘okahi Kanuha, a Hawaiian subject and protected person, for the war crime of deprivation of liberty when he, along with thirty other individuals, was unlawfully arrested and temporarily detained on April 2, 2015, in the taking of protective measures to prevent the war crime of destruction of public property during occupation to be carried out by TMT International Observatory, LLC, (TMTIO) upon the summit of Hawai‘i’s largest mountain Mauna a Wakea, also known as Mauna Kea. Additionally, my client is reporting the war crimes of destruction of public property during occupation committed in the building and erecting of the following thirteen observatories:
University of Hawai‘i Institute for Astronomy’s UH telescope built in 1970;
NASA’s Infrared Telescope Facility built in 1979;
CFHT Corporation’s Canada-France-Hawai‘i Telescope built in 1979;
UKIRT’s United Kingdom Infrared Telescope built in 1979;
East Asian Observatory’s James Clerk Maxwell Telescope built in 1987;
Caltech Submillimeter Observatory’s telescope (10-meter) built in 1987;

OTTAWA, CANADA – A war crimes complaint was filed on Wednesday in Canada in connection with the planned Thirty Meter Telescope project on Mauna Kea.
The Hawaiian Kingdom blog reported that Kaho‘okahi Kanuha, a spokesperson for the Ku Kia’i Mauna movement that is blocking TMT from the summit of the sacred mountain, hand delivered the complaint, which was drafted by his attorney Dexter Kai’ama. Kanuha was accompanied by Dr. Keanu Sai, who drafted a detailed War Crimes Report at the request of Kai’ama.
