It looks like around ten Occupy Hawaii protestors are back at Thomas Square off of Ward. Workers from the city Facility Maintenance and Parks and Recreation departments removed four tents and other items belonging to Occupy Honolulu protesters under a new ordinance which forbids storage of private items on government property. The Parks and Recreation workers are backed by HPD and the state, as a new law prohibits people from camping on the sidewalks.
Police arrested protester, Lucas Miller, 29, of Makiki, and cited him with obstruction of a government operation — a misdemeanor. Miller, a teacher, was arrested after sitting in his tent, holding it while dancing and finally blocking the city workers from loading up their backhoe. He was scheduled to make his initial appearance in District Court this morning.
What will become of this??
