LETTER: Astrophysics Graduate Students at TMT Partner Institutions Express Concern

July 20, 2019, 9:30 AM HST (Updated July 20, 2019, 9:32 AM)
×

Dear astronomy community,

We write to express concern about recent events on the Maunakea summit with regards to the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). We call upon the astronomy community to recognize the broader historical context of this conflict, and to denounce the criminalization of the protectors on Maunakea. We urge the TMT collaboration and the government of Hawaiʻi to desist from further arresting or charging protectors, and to remove military and law enforcement personnel from the summit.

Please join us by signing this letter (using this link) and by committing to action (examples are listed below).

Construction of TMT on Maunakea was scheduled to resume Monday, July 15, 2019. On July 14, 2019, AP reported that unarmed National Guard units will be involved in transporting personnel and supplies, and enforcing road closures. Exact details of the situation on the mountain are dynamic, but as of Wednesday, July 17, 2019, the authors of this letter were alarmed to see multiple confirmations on social media that local law enforcement has begun arresting native Hawaiians who are peacefully occupying the summit and blocking the road to the construction site.

The authors of this letter want to pause and recognize the significance of TMT in determining future scientific pursuits within mainstream academic astronomy. We want to acknowledge the investment that so many colleagues within the astronomy community have made towards the project’s completion. We write today not to place a value judgment on the future of TMT on Maunakea, but to question the methods by which we are getting the telescope on the mountain in the first place. We ask that the community pause and consider what it means that, armed or not, the military and the police have become involved in the project’s deliberations with the protectors of Maunakea.

We want to echo the work of Indigenous scholars and communities in pointing out how US-based histories of conquest have been exploitative and destructive to Indigenous ways of knowing (science) and being (cosmology) in the continental US and in the Hawaiian context. These histories progressed in lock-step with the development of western “sciences” of personhood: of who and/or what is human, and therefore who must be subhuman, and thus must be subject to control via mechanisms of policing, incarceration, and military violence. As Hawaiian scientist Aurora Kagawa-Viviani writes, “To me, practices of science in its present form smell a lot like the American Manifest Destiny associated with terrible loss for so many indigenous communities.”[1]

We evoke this history because we recognize that the events surrounding TMT occur within a context of US-based injustice in this particular historical moment, including but not limited to the ongoing disproportionate policing and incarceration of members of Indigenous, Black, and brown communities in the US, and the detention of refugee migrants in concentration camps at the US border. To be explicit: institutions of policing, incarceration and militarization have a long history of being used to harm marginalized, racialized communities in this country.

As astronomers, we recognize that our science relies on access to resources; we also recognize the singularity of Maunakea as an ideal observation site in the northern hemisphere. We want to acknowledge that there are many senior members of our international community who have devoted their careers to the telescope design and program, and that many junior members have the futures of their careers riding on the telescope’s completion. We also recognize how this issue has been deeply divisive and disruptive within the Kānaka Maoli community.

We realize that members of the astronomy community see the exigence in starting the construction as soon as possible for a number of complex political and economic reasons. However, we ask whether expedience must come through violation of consent and leverage of apparatuses of state-sanctioned violence. We ask the community to consider whether the future of our field is worth the damage to our relationship with Kānaka Maoli by continuing to criminalize Maunakea protectors on their ancestral land. To quote Prof. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, we ask that astronomers also “think of the lasting consequences for us of being a community that partners with the military and the police on indigenous land and then publicly brands itself as being about wonder and the majestic.”[2]

To reiterate our demand at the beginning of this letter, we ask that members of the astronomy community leverage their power to oppose further violence against Maunakea protectors. We ask that the community takes this action as a first step towards a future in which, as Kanaka scholar Sara Kahanamoku writes, “the practice of science is truly ethical: where human rights, including the rights of indigenous people to self-determination, are upheld through the practice of science.”[3]

Below we present a(n incomplete) list of actionable items and further resources:

Actionable items:

Sign in support of this letter (link here) and the following demands:
Ask the TMT collaboration and the Hawaiian government to remove military / police presence from the mauna, to stop arrests, and to not charge protectors who have already been arrested
Ask the TMT collaboration to engage protectors in discussion with an aim to reach consensus
Watch the livestream and bear witness to events on the mauna: https://www.facebook.com/Kanaeokana/videos/485669822180209/
Contribute to the bail fund for the kūpuna (Kānaka Maoli elders) and their assistants who have already been arrested: http://hawaiicommunitybailfund.org/
Donate to KAHEA, a community-based organization that is also helping with legal funds for Maunakea protectors: http://kahea.org/

This letter was written by astrophysics graduate students at TMT partner institutions. We acknowledge the relative privilege that we have even as graduate students at these institutions to openly speak out about our concerns with the process of telescope construction. We want to acknowledge our colleagues who are in similar or more junior career stages, whose career prospects are more closely tied to the construction of the telescope, and who may be unable to fully express their concerns and criticisms about this project. While many members of the astronomy community have openly opposed aspects of telescope construction in the last several days, we ask that the community also collectively considers how certain members have been silenced, and how that also speaks to the complex, interlocking structures of power within academic astronomy.

Finally, we acknowledge some of our positionalities as settlers occupying unceded ancestral territories of multiple Indigenous groups on the continental US (including but not limited to that of the Chochenyo-Ohlone people and the Tongva-Gabrielino people).

We invite the astronomy community to suggest more links and ideas on how to divest from using state-sanctioned violence in the construction of facilities for our field’s future. Again, please consider co-signing this letter to show your support and provide ideas, and using the power available to you by your positionality to fulfill one or more of the action items above.
