Jason Momoa Is Leading A Revolt Against Hawaii’s Thirty Meter Telescope
When Khal Drogo talks, people listen.
The Honolulu-born actor joined an impassioned group of environmentalists and Native Hawaiian activists on Thursday on Hawaii’s Big Island to protest the construction of a $1.4 billion telescope on at a remote spot atop Mauna Kea volcano.
Momoa has flooded his Instagram feed with photos supporting the protesters and is urging his celebrity friends to support the cause by signing a Change.org petition to “immediately halt all TMT-related construction” and “stop all arrests” of “those standing in protection of Mauna Kea.”
So far, hundreds of people have joined the protest on the dormant volcano’s summit and at least 31 people have been arrested.
