State dismantles unpermitted ‘library’ at TMT protest camp; 2 protesters arrested

MICHAEL BRESTOVANSKY/Tribune-Herald Law enforcement and Thirty Meter Telescope protesters face each other down from opposite sides of a police line Friday as an unpermitted structure is removed by state personnel.


State workers load scrap from the demolished unpermitted building at the Thirty Meter Telescope protest camp on Maunakea into a construction vehicle to be transported to a scrapyard in Hilo.

State personnel on Friday dismantled an unpermitted structure that was constructed by Thirty Meter Telescope protesters earlier this week.
