At least 27 people were arrested in Kalaeloa as tensions rose over a proposed wind farm on Oahu’s North Shore Sunday night through Monday morning. 13 people were arrested in Kahuku.
All were arrested for disobedience to a police officer. Demonstrators, who call themselves kia’i, or protectors, blocked a roadway in Kalaeloa to keep construction materials from being transported to Kahuku. They duct-taped and zip-tied themselves together in solidarity. Police worked to seperate them before carrying them off one by-one .
The convoy proceeded as planned and construction materials continued to Kahuku Monday morning.
Today is almost a repeat of last week, when demonstrators were arrested in Kalaeloa Thursday. As many as 100 officers were there to control the situation and make arrests.
