Another “Aloha Aina Unity March” is being planned Sunday in Lahaina, Maui, organizers announced Tuesday.

The march will start at 10 a.m. near Mala Ocean Tavern and will be followed by a rally at Kamehameha Iki Park, organizer Tiare Lawrence said in a press release.

A similar event in Honolulu in August attracted thousands of Native Hawaiians and other residents.

Like that march, Lawrence said the Maui event represents “an effort to raise awareness on issues surrounding over-development and exploitation of natural and cultural resources.”

“At the forefront of concern is the development of the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope on Haleakala and the Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea, the GMO issue, and the restoration of streamflow,” Lawrence said in a statement announcing the event.
