VOICES FROM THE MOVEMENT
 
As reported on Friday’s newscast, last Thursday the Office of Hawaiian Affairs Board of Trustees voted to rescind its previous support for a hotly contested new telescope project on Mauna Kea, which is of central and sacred importance to the Hawaiian people.
The Thirty Meter Telescope, or TMT, would be by far the largest of an already crowded 13-telescope complex near the summit of the mountain.
Native Hawaiians and environmentalists had opposed the other telescopes, but only the TMT has aroused a mobilization powerful enough to prevent construction from going forward. 13:20 minutes (12.2 MB)

Officials and Activists Weigh Options for O & C Lands

Thu, 04/30/2015
The US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released five options for updating the Northwest Forest Plan, which determines, among other things, the number of board feet allowed to be harvested from the O & C lands. These lands are a patchwork of square-mile plots surrounding the coprridor of the failed Oregon & California railroad extending the full length of the Oregon coast. In the 1930s, a deal was set up where the land once owned by the O & C would become public land for the benefit of local counties, and the result was decades of wholesale logging, only ending in the early 1990s due to environmental regulations. 5:45 minutes (5.26 MB)
