100 days of standing at Mauna Kea

First photo: A sea of red-clad Mauna Kea supporters participates in ‘aha mauna protocol at the University of Hawaii Maui College on Sunday evening to mark the 100th day of kia’i standing at Mauna Kea to stop the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope. About 200 to 250 people came to Maui’s ceremony, which took place simultaneously with protocol on the mountain.

Second photo: “For 100 days kia’i has been on Mauna Kea,” Mahina Martin told the crowd. “They will be there for 100 more, 200 more, 300 more. Today they committed to do whatever it takes, and Maui has always and will continue to stand with kia’i at Mauna Kea.”

Third photo: Martin said that protocol takes place at 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at UHMC, coinciding with protocol on the mountain. The Lahaina community also holds protocol at the same time on Tuesdays and Fridays at Waiola Church.
