Over 100 Native Hawaiians Protest Telescope Construction on Sacred Volcano

Over a hundred protesters have gathered on the volcano Haleakala in the Hawaiian island of Maui since Tuesday in an effort to stop a solar telescope from being built on the volcano considered to be sacred by some Native Hawaiians.

On early Wednesday, two women and four men from the group were arrested by local authorities following their attempt to block a truck convoy carrying parts for the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope from reaching the summit of the mountain.
