Pua Case: "Aloha to all in the Idle No More Movement and all movements everywhere. We are asking all of you to pray and stand with us on Tuesday, October 7 at 8:00 a.m. as we gather in Hawaii and designated places here and throughout the world in sacred prayer and strength for Mauna a Wakea, highest mountain in the world from the sea floor connected to your mountains, We stand with the mauna as ground breaking takes place for a Thirty Meter 18 story telescope (funded by the governments of China, Japan, India, Canada as well as Cal Tech and the Gordan and Betty Moore Foundation in California) on our sacred piko, the center, the realm of our genealogical connection. Stand with us as we continue to stand for all of you, for all our sacred lands, our traditions and our peoples now and for generations to come."

Call for worldwide protest:
"A simultaneous, island-wide/world-wide protest on 10/7 against the further desecration of Mauna Kea, a conservation district and sacred elder, the largest mountain in the entire world from its base, Mauna Kea, on the island of Hawaii.

The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) = a Telescope that will be the tallest building (18 stories) on the island of Hawaiʻi. The TMT is breaking ground- the so-called blessing on October 7, 2014 on Sacred Crown Land's of Mauna Kea. This will Destroy natural endangered specie's habitats that can only be found on Mauna Kea. The telescope will stand as tall as the Aloha Stadium, 8 stories higher than the Hawaiian 'Capitol.'

Wherever you are, join us in sacred reverence for the Mauna and simultaneously you will be sending your support to those who are standing physically on the mountain's summit for the same cause of righteousness. Events are being scheduled across the globe for the same purpose. You are welcome to engage in sacred practice and protest."
