Some Hawaiians protested at the Hilo Airport in 1978 when they illegally built the Hilo Airport on Hawaiian land. Very few people know this and/or remember this. Some of course do not care but like Dr REV MLK JR once said... injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.

It's a great thing that some people are protesting since the land does not belong to the state of Hawaii. It "belongs" to Hawaiians.
