|Protesters block Mauna Kea access road
Eight protesters were chained to a cattle guard, including one underneath the metal guard, on Mauna Kea Access Road early Monday, just hours before construction was expected to begin. One of those protesters was Walter Ritte, a well-renowned Native Hawaiian activist. “We do not want this TMT on this mountain. This mountain represents more than just their building they want to build. This mountain represents the last thing they want to take that we will not give them,” Ritte says. Hawaii News Now.
