PLDC protests planned across state (Oct. 8)


Residents will be uniting in a day of action and solidarity Monday, Oct. 8 to show opposition to the State of Hawaii’s Public Land Development Corporation.

The PLDC was created by the state Legislature last year when Act 55 was signed into law creating a new funding arm of the Department of Land and Natural Resources.

Wear red to demonstrate solidarity and join one of the rallies 2-4 p.m.

* East – at DLNR Building for Hilo

* West – Highway by Mormon Temple and Honokohua Harbor

* North – Kapa’au – 3-4:30 p.m. on the lawn in front of the senior center (behind the Kamehameha Statue)

* Kauai – In the park in front of the County Council Building in Lihue

* Maui – County Building, 200 S. High St., Wailuku

* Oahu – Capitol Building, Downtown

For a complete list of rallies, visit:

Concerns about the PLDC include: exempting itself from regulatory, planning, preservation, civil service, and competitive bidding requirements; to the shift in the DLNR’s balance from a preservation and conservation role to one of development for money; to the incompatibility of contemplated development with low or inverse market demand; to the burdens this development places on local infrastructure; to the shutting out of our local communities by holding public meetings about proposed development only on Oahu; to excluding our city / county governments from any requirements to involve them in the evaluation, planning, and regulatory processes; and to how the PLDC and its exemptions shows disregard and contempt toward our host culture (Kanaka Maoli and Kanaka Hawaii) for the stewardship and public trust responsibility of crown / ceded lands.

    Mahalo nui loa to the organizers and all those who came out in support island-wide. Stop the sale of stolen Hawaiian Kingdom lands.
