Anti-Thirty Meter Telescope demonstrations take place nationwide
The anti-Thirty Meter Telescope demonstrations continue on outside of Hawai'i, throughout the nation.
On the Ninth Island, dozens of demonstrators stood next to the famous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada" sign. They're holding up signs that read, "We Are Mauna Kea," and "Protectors, Not Protestors." KITV4 has shared this picture on our Facebook page, generating a lot of engagement.
Another demonstration took place in Sparks, Nevada. A Facebook live video shows a hula halau joining in on the tension over TMT demonstration.
In Anchorage, Alaska demonstrations took place roadside.
Finally in Rohnert Park, California-- the Nanakuli Hawks are representing Hawai'i. The team won the state tournament on Oahu back on June 9th, with an undefeated season. The boys are all from the Leeward Coast.
