At least 31 Hawaii residents have been arrested for blocking the road to the summit on Mauna Kea from TMT workers. Gov. David Ige recently announced that the TMT project will halt for one full week on Mauna Kea. People are continuing their efforts on Mauna Kea to halt the building of the telescope, urging the public to become educated on any laws that may be in violation.
A group of protectors on Mauna Kea who are naming their efforts Project Mauna Kea, are planning to remain on the mountain in an effort to continue the halt of the TMT project.
