Mark Zuckerberg purchases 600 acre land; Hawaii people protest against him, Why?
More than 1.5 million people have come out against Mark Zuckerberg's purchase of land on such a large scale in the Hawaiian Islands.
New Delhi: A land deal is overshadowed by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Mark Zuckerberg, the world's fifth richest, has bought 600 acres of land in the Hawaiian Islands, valued at around Rs 392 crore.
Zukerberg in Hawaii:
Mark Kui in Hawaii, famous for natural beauty and has purchased nearly 2000 acres of land in Pila Island. After purchasing land on such a large scale, more than 1.5 million people have come out against them, which has increased Mark's difficulties considerably.
Zuckerberg buys property in Hawaii:
More than 1.5 million people have come out against Mark Zuckerberg's purchase of land on such a large scale in the Hawaiian Islands. Online petition signatures have begun to protest against the purchase of land.
People feel that if an outsider occupies most of the land, the monarchy can return. This will have an impact on their lives. Hawaii had a monarchy until the year 1895. Hawaii later merged into the US.
Another reason for Mark Zuckerberg's opposition is to the owner of this land. Missionary Couple Abner and Lucy Wilcox, the first owners of the land, came to Hawaii in the year 1837. In 1975, Wyllie Corporation took ownership of them and has now sold to Mark Zuckerberg.
People also believe that outsiders come and buy Hawaii and its islands first and then sell them to other outsiders. This is creating a community of outsiders, which is a threat to Hawaii's culture.
Explain that the owner of property worth 87 thousand crores of rupees has bought 1400 acres of land on Kauai Island in September 2014 and Pila Beach in March 2019 on this island. Hawaii has 8 islands and Kauai Island is the fourth largest. Three of them have become Zuckerberg owners of the island.
