KILAUEA, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

More than 200 people on Kauai are planning a protest on Saturday near Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s 700-acre property in Kilauea.

The protest, scheduled to start at 12 p.m. on Koolau Road, is in response to Zuckerberg’s recent lawsuits against a few hundred people – many living and some dead – who inherited or once owned “kuleana lands” on the property he paid for in 2014.

Demonstrators said they plan on marching every Saturday until Zuckerberg drops his lawsuits and hosts a meeting with community members.

Zuckerberg recently said he’s reconsidering the lawsuits and wants to make sure “we are following a process that protects the interests of property owners, respects the traditions of native Hawaiians, and preserves the environment."
