Concert and lectures headline Day 7 of Mauna Kea occupation

  • Video by Jamm Aquino.

    Mauna Kea turned partly into an outdoor classroom and concert venue Sunday as professors gave lectures and award-winning musicians played for Thirty Meter Telescope opponents whose numbers swelled to an estimated 2,000 people. The music performances, along with lectures organized by Hawaiian studies faculty from the University of Hawaii at what was dubbed "Puuhuluhulu University," made for a day on the mountain filled with entertainment and education -- as well as continued resolve to prevent construction of the planned $1.4 billion telescope.
