Say aloha as in goodbye to the haleiwa we know and love?

Aloha All: We all know how bad traffic is already in the country. It's maxed out like code black NW swell. So, now lets put in a Hotel?
Tomorrow, Saturday 2/11, The Hui O He'e Nalu, Friends of Save Haleiwa, Save Sunset Beach Coalition and Friends/Family of Squiddy Sanchez, will be hosting a peaceful protest fronting Haleiwa Beach Mauka park from 10am till 1pm. Purpose is to let Andy Anderson know that we don't want his hotel and molding Haleiwa town into another Waikiki with its over abundance of tourists, rising costs, TRAFFIC and basically removing the country ambiance and feel of the North Shore. Many come to the North Shore to get away from the "hustle & bustle" and relax with their Ohana on the beach or in the parks. We strongly support local business and more jobs, but Haleiwa is a small, quaint town. There is no room for this hotel.
We understand Andy is still pushing his hotel idea behind the scenes. So we will conduct this protest to let him know that the community, who doesnt support his plan, still feel the same way and are not going anywhere.
All are welcome to join in if you support our mission. This will be a peaceful protest. If you have the same goal, e komo mai.
Mahalo Piha,
