We, the global community of Mauna Kea supporters are demanding the immediate halt to the construction of the TMT, 30 Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea, Island of Hawaiʻi. The TMT will cause harm to the mountain and destroy a sacred place for Kanaka Maoli’s spiritual and cultural practices. We oppose any construction made on sacred land without the free, prior and informed consent of Kanaka Maoli. 

Mauna a Wākea is the tallest mountain on earth reaching from her base on the ocean floor to her summit that rises above the clouds.

Mauna Kea is ancestrally, culturally and spiritually sacred to Kanaka Maoli, and the spiritual and physical health of the mountain, is reflective of the spiritual and physical health of her people. 

Mauna Kea is significant to the entire world, connected to all mountains and waters, all places and all people.

We, the undersigned, demand the immediate halt to the construction of the 30 Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea. 

WE, the global community of Mauna Kea Supporters will continue to support the Kanaka Maoli and the people of Hawaiʻi in every way possible.

This is not just about one mountain in Hawai’i. This is a global movement and the world is watching.
