More on Big Island march from Big Island Video News

by Larry Geller

Thanks again to @OCCHiloMedia for pointing me to this story on the three-day march to the headquarters of the  Hawaii Electric Light Company headquarters that ended on Monday:

The “March on HELCO” led these activists – who are in opposition to the expansion of the geothermal energy industry in Puna – to the doorstep of the Hawaii Electric Light Company headquarters. Organizers planned to deliver a petition to HELCO president Jay Ignacio, demanding the utility stop its contract for new geothermal development on the Island of Hawaii.

The HELCO president did accept the petition. Read the complete article for details.
