It is unfortunate that press coverage of the Superferry protests and hearing with the governor continue to focus on the poor behavior of a few individuals. The majority of those who gave testimony to the governor's panel handled themselves with profound dignity. Our neighbors on Oahu need to understand that many feel that our government has not treated Kauai's people with respect on this issue from its very inception. This is at the core of the anger and frustration. The governor refused to accept a petition of 10% of the people on Kauai asking for an EIS. We feel that we are victims of a government that is catering to big business and the military. And, no, the governor did not answer all of the very important questions that were asked of her. She mostly focused on questions regarding the penalties that citizens were to face if they chose to practice their constitutional rights of free speech and assembly. This incited the audience. She refused to even declare "aloha 'aina" when asked to do so by a keiki o ka 'aina. Make no mistake, many people on Kauai think that the governor and the DOT have also broken the law and should be held accountable.
E komo mai, to our Oahu neighbors, but leave the Superferry at the docks in Honolulu. While you may think it will add some small convenience to your life, please consider that Kauai is our home and we are obligated to protect the people, plants, animals, land, and ocean that make up our environment.
Eh, cuz no take da Superferry!!
