Jason Momoa isn’t stopping until the construction of a massive telescope in his native land is put to a halt. The actor has even gone so far as to jokingly warn Warner Bros that Aquaman 2 won’t start shooting as he continues to be an active protester.
The actor, who was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, is currently part of a protest movement against the construction of a Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea, the highest point in Hawaii. Protests against the USD1.4 billion project has reportedly been going on for several weeks. The project is for scientific purposes and is a joint effort between universities of California, Canada and is also funded by partners in India, China and Japan.
Momoa has spent several weeks protesting on the highest point on the state of Hawaii, Mauna Kea, in an effort to stop construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT), a $1.4 billion scientific project underwritten by a group of universities in California and Canada as well as partners in China, India and Japan.
The Aquaman star took to Instagram last week where he posted a photo of the construction of the Subaru Telescope from 1992. Momoa captioned the post: “Sorry Warner Bros we can’t shoot Aquaman 2. Because Jason got run over by a bulldozer trying to stop the desecration of his native land.”
Momoa and his two kids flew to his home state last month to be a part of the protests. They joined on the 17th day with a protest group trying to block access to Mauna Kea in hoping to halt construction.
