Tumblr, Hawai’i needs your support now more than ever.

Kea, one of our most sacred mountains, is under attack. Since the 70′s,
telescopes have been built on its summit, destroying the ecosystem and
sacred sites. Right now, there are 13 telescopes, and now, certain
people want to build another one. Except this one will be 30 meters (98+
ft.) tall, and costing over $1.4 billion. Because of the mountain’s
unstable surface, construction workers for the other telescopes have had
to basically blow up certain areas and smooth it out to make it more
stable. Mauna Kea is already over 40 feet (12 m) lower than before

Even though many people were arrested after a series
of peaceful protests, we are still fighting. Mauna Kea is sacred to our
people, and it is not theirs to build on. This land is ancient and
sacred, and it does not belong to the United States, or the State of

So please, help and support our efforts to put an end to the construction by signing this petition –
