The US Coast Guard yesterday created a military security zone in Hawai’i’s Nawiliwili (NA-WILLIE-WILLIE) Harbor. Hundreds of people protested in the Harbor Monday, angry at the plans for the new Superferry in Hawai’i.
The Superferry has stirred controversy in Hawai’i because it has begun service without an environmental impact statement. However, Hawai’i’s Supreme Court ruled Friday that the ferry must undergo an environmental assessment.
Rich Hoeppner is a founder of the Superferry Impact group, and President of People for the preservation of Kaua’i .
