Did any of you see the short documentary, “The Calling” that was created by Hawaii News Now? Short clips of what’s happening up on the Mauna?
In that documentary, Noe Noe Wong was captured saying, “negotiations by the Kia’i have been occurring all along. Just because we don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not happening.” But on the other hand, she will say, “This is a victory because we have finally been given options rather than being told what to do.” So in other words, if they weren’t calling the shots and getting their way, then there would be no cooperation. I hardly call that fair negotiating. Six months of it too. And I think if serious negotiations were truly happening as she claims, that we all would have heard about it one way or another. Island is big but very small by way of useless gossip and hearsay.
She continues to say that they are currently preparing for trial. What trial? Back in September, they made a public announcement that they would be pursuing a lawsuit. We were also given a 90-day time frame as to when that would happen. So far, nothing. What and who exactly would they be suing I ask? The same people that pay more than $35million annually into their racist organizations without benefiting from it? The state, county, OHA, DHHL and law enforcement who took the side of their ridiculous “calling?” TMT for legally holding all permits required to move forward with their project? The government for not stepping in and upholding U.S. laws? The people that all donated their time and money to their cause? So I’m confused? Who are you suing exactly? Sounds like more baseless rhetoric to me! If anybody needs to sue it’s the non-native taxpayers. It seems to me that everybody will say and do just anything at this point to save their own lawless arse! And there’s a lot of arse covering at this point I would assume. Like I have said over and over again prove it Kia’i! Words are nothing without supporting documentation or evidence to support your claims. Nope! We still aren’t drinking your kool-aid. Try again!
