ARRESTS MADE, UPDATE: 5:30 a.m. 8/20/15. Several demonstrators were arrested overnight during a blockade on Crater Road as they encountered a convoy carrying equipment and telescope parts to Haleakalā for ongoing construction of the Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope. Sources tell us at least six individuals were arrested, but the exact count has not yet been released by authorities. According to our sources the arrests included JoJo Henderson and Lanakila Mangauil, who were involved in similar demonstrations at Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi; and Hoʻoleila Kaʻeo of Maui. A separate blockade at the Central Maui Baseyard dispersed without incident at around 12:30 a.m. The convoy is the third scheduled since June.
