The Honolulu Police Department arrested 55 protestors who were attempting to block trucks from delivering equipment to the planned wind turbine project in Kahuku on Thursday night into Friday morning.

Protesters in Kahuku who have been blocking the movement of equipment for a wind farm said they would support a solar farm in its place.
