"Aquaman" and "Game of Thrones" star Jason Momoa has joined protests against the construction of a 30-metre telescope on Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The famous actor and Native Hawaiian was cheered by the crowd as he joined the demonstration wearing a green lei around his neck and a crown on his head.
He supported the protestors, saying "we are not going anywhere".
He later took part in a religious ceremony near the sacred summit.
Activists have blocked the road to summit of Mauna Kea for 17 days, protesting against the construction of the giant telescope. The protesters claim that the mountain is sacred according to Hawaiian traditions.
The news comes after Governor of Hawaii David Ige stated there are no immediate plans to move heavy construction equipment onto the mountain and withdrew an emergency proclamation that backed removing the protestors from the site.
