I haven’t had a response yet to my musings. The Mayor, being in control of the “operation” out here needs to really know about how we are being treated. I ran into an acquaintance (male approx 55) earlier this morning, he was soaking wet and tired. I think hadn’t rained since last night, and he said he had caught the bus in to SouthEast Pahoa from Kalapana, walked in to eat something and check his mail at the Post Office. He needed to shop at Malama Market so he asked at the blockade if he could walk through (since we all know the lava front has stalled) and was laughed at. In fact, he heard them snickering as he had to walk down the post office road, out along the bypass where he got smothered by passing cars throwing dirty water from the stupid little mosquito breeding dugouts carved on purposed on the side of the road, and trudged all the way to Malama Marketplace. This is absurd and the most blatant abuse of power. Someone else who heard us talking said that happened to a young mother with a baby in a stroller yesterday.
YOU ALL SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THIS, AND I AM SORRY I AM YELLING BUT THIS BLOCKADE IS OUT OF HAND.
Please take immediate action.
