In this video, choreographer Gail Lotenberg and The Rhythm Kids perform for people coming off the ferry. A group of adult Dock Stoppers joined in to the bemusement of arriving commuters and vacationers.
As people from the ferry walked up the hill, they found our red carpet: a long, long strip of red fabric all the way from the Library corner up to the Fire regulations sign – 490 feet – the same length as the longest dock under construction now at Cape Roger Curtis.
We’re having fun while getting the word out about how the unbroken wild shoreline of Cape Roger Curtis is likely to have four ginormous docks constructed across it this month.
We think that if enough people add their voices we can persuade the owners Edwin Lee, Don Ho, TheCapeOnBowen and others to stop the project and leave the last broad intertidal zone on Bowen in a natural state. And we hope to encourage our Municipal Council to lead the charge.
So far the owners of the coming docks have not even publicly acknowledged our concern. If you care, please fill in our petition. To date over 850 people have added their names, but we need more to get the people in charge of the project and those overseeing our island to take notice, respond, and stop the docks.
