MAUIWatch Staff October 18, 2015

The “Aloha Aina Unity March” was held Sunday 10/18/15 in Lahaina.

The march started at 10 a.m. near Mala Ocean Tavern and was followed by a rally at Kamehameha Iki Park, according to organizer Tiare Lawrence via press release.

A similar event in Honolulu in August attracted thousands of Native Hawaiians and other residents.

Like that march, Lawrence said the Maui event represents “an effort to raise awareness on issues surrounding over-development and exploitation of natural and cultural resources.”

“At the forefront of concern is the development of the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope on Haleakala and the Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea, the GMO issue, and the restoration of streamflow,” Lawrence said in a statement announcing the event.
