A minor error was made in the well executed plan up on the Mauna.

Someone posted that everyone should go up there and live stream the gathering yesterday.
That's what happened and it was a disaster.
When I saw the post, I thought they must know about some secret communication system that would provide that kind of bandwidth !

Whoops !

Either the leaders didn't know or one of the protesters sent that out and they lost control of it.

Is they even more than one tower in that area ??

Their cell phones wouldn't work because they overloaded the system.

Clearly Verizon et al need to upgrade the tower capacity up there. Anything less would be desecration of the sacred fake news.

Poetic justice! And that looks like the only sort of justice that will be applied to this situation any time soon.

No provision to recall the governor in Hawaii, only impeachment, which could be challenging given the lawmakers supporting Mauna Kea occupation.

Anyone remember the missle scare? It was a preview...

upgrade the tower capacity

I heard a new larger taller cell tower would pollute the Mauna Kea watershed, be nuclear powered, shoot lasers at cars on Saddle Road, stand 20 stories high visible from every house on Hawaii Island, and send out electromagnetic waves directly into our brains. But then, if I can connect with my Facebook account faster it would be worth it I guess.

We're getting 5G already?

It wasn't reported. I saw a post on facebook.

"We were on the Mauna yesterday and no one, that we asked, had phone service - our phones were dead - I havenít seen any reference as to why or how this happened. We have always had service there."

and this reply.

" Too many people, not enough bandwidth. I saw on the official page they even asked everyone up there to turn their phones to airplane mode so that anything important would still be able to come in"

Could you possibly post the link to the facebook page? Nothing has been reported in the media about this and so until someone can confirm this it seems to be hearsay.

I doubt anyone posted it to the media because they knew what happened and why.
I can't post a link because it was a comment posted on the Facebook group " Big Island Thieves"
Here is a link to a search I did for the posters name on Big Island Thieves:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/958195427537011/search/?query=Marilyn%20Veincent&epa=SEARCH_BOX
Anyone who is a member of the group can search using the name, Marilyn Veincent
