Facebook CEO & co-founder Mark Zuckenberg has ordered his security guards to confront hikers and use intimidation tactics to keep them off the public beaches and trails that intertwine with his 700-acre mostly undeveloped property in Kauai.
Numerous natives of Hawaii have encountered either “no trespassing signs” along the historic “Ala Loa Trail” or have been forced to leave by security guards riding ATV’s.
Neighbor’s of Zuckenberg are furious with him. A Hawaiian law, the Kuleana Act, established in 1850 gives natives the right to use the land land the lived on. Zuckenberg filled law suits, which would compel other owners of the parcels to sell their property to the highest bidder.
Hawaii wants to make sure we are following a process that protects the interests of property owners, and respects the traditions of native Hawaiians and preserves the environment. One of Zuckerberg’s neighbors said that he plans to march @ The Wall until the Facebook CEO officially drops the lawsuits and meets with his neighbors in person.
Facebook earned it ‘respect and profits’ by stealing and selling people’s information on the internet.
