A large group of protesters lined the sides of Queen Kaahumanu highway Friday afternoon urging for Hawaii’s leaders to re-open the state. More than 100 demonstrators — nearly all without masks — carried signs with messages varying from “I need a haircut” to warnings of tyranny, waved shakas and garnered honks from passing vehicles.
