Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) – Haleakala, Maui, Hawaii Dear President Obama, Since our last communique, matters in Hawaii are steadily deteriorating. Your intervention is needed. Time is of the essence. Diplomacy is having people skills and the ability to work with people effectively in a positive way. Diplomats have interpersonal skills and the ability to conduct negotiations between divergent groups on a myriad of issues. Senator Dan Inouye received many accolades for his diplomacy, nationally, internationally and globally.
  • 2. Top down and driven style of government is in full bloom, in practice and the reality here in Hawaii today. The excerpt from Pacific Business News reaffirms the need to establish an open-line of communications between Governor Ige, his Attorney General, members of his Cabinet and Staff and officials at the University of Hawaii and to reach out to the People. Opposition to the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on the Big Island and the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) on Maui has been and continues to be raised. The hesitancy, may be fear, on the part of Governor Ige to take personal interest and intervene personally is the proximate and direct cause for this ongoing and protracted conflict. Hawaii's attorney general working to reopen road for Thirty Meter Telescope construction Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin that he is working with the governor, UH, and land department to reopen Mauna Kea access road, which was closed last week after protesters placed rocks to block Thirty Meter Telescope construction crews, according to a statement released Wednesday. “Deliberately building a rock wall in the middle of a road without warning threatens public safety,” he said. “Purposely placing boulders in a road could get someone killed. Commercial activities and camping in this protected area without a permit are against State regulations. This is not a statement against the content of the protest, but the conduct.” Chin said the Attorney General’s office is prepared to “take all lawful steps to see the road re-opened with safe access to all.” Thirty Meter Telescope project opposition group Ku Kiai Mauna, or Stand Guard the Mountain, said earlier Wednesday it was not in communications with the governor’s office.
  • 3. Ku Kiai Mauna leader and conference moderator Kahookahi Kanuha said at a news conference that Hawaii Gov. David Ige’s office has not reached out to the group. Ku Kiai Mauna is committed to public safety, but will not back down at Mauna Kea on the Big Island, he said. Source: Pacific Business News. July 1, 2015. http://www.bizjournals.com/pacific/news/2015/07/01/hawaiis-attorney- general-working-to-reopen-road.html Edicts and authoritarian style of government, except in Emergency, is contrary to democractic government. The Constitutional grants of Free speech, Equality and Freedom from Oppression is being usurped and deminished. Please help free the People of Hawaii and restore the rights granted to us by our Constitution. Hawaii is the 50th State of the United States of America. Happy 4th of July! Aloha Respectfully, Clifton M. Hasegawa
