Another Puna Papaya farm has been attacked by one or more folks wielding machetes last night. It’s at “Bernardos Farm” according to @Farmers4Choice.
Here is a picture of some of the damage:

Really how dare you attack another small papaya grower? Who bought the machetes who destroyed over 100 trees this morning?
While the Hawaii Papaya Industry Association was gathering for their annual meeting and Mayor Billy Kenoi was speaking one farmer was absent; he was at his field with police overlooking destruction of his trees. A sad discovery awaited his trees had been chopped down!This is not okay, activism has gone to far now you have turned into eco terrorists! This is wrong!
We’re farmers not sex offenders, We will not register like a criminal…..
The criminals are the activists who have turned into ecoterrorists. Register the activists not farmers...
