Kahuku demonstrators respond to Mayor’s statement

The group leading the protest against a wind farm on Oahu’s North Shore today reacted to a statement from Mayor Kirk Caldwell that said the project has met all legal mandates.

Demonstrators held a sign-waiving in front of Honolulu Hale on Friday. At one point, they tried to go to the Mayor’s office to speak with him. He was unavailable to address the group but later released a statement.

“I support the right to protest under our First Amendment and I appreciate the passion of those who showed up at my office today. However, every member of our community needs to follow the law, and the current project in Kahuku has met all of the mandates put before it. I will continue to ensure all of our laws are followed, and that includes the right to protest.”

Ku Kiai Kahuku says the laws of the land aren’t being applied equitably and claim protestors are being arrested for what they call “unjust laws.”

Police have arrested more than a hundred people during protests against the wind farm in the last three weeks.
