What's it like being homeless?



By H. Doug Matsuoka

With Honolulu's Bill 7 (now Ordinance 13-08) allowing immediate seizure and destruction of homeless people's personal property, life on the street is even tougher. The City hopes for an out of sight, out of mind effect on the community. It's worked before. Will it work this time? Hope not.

This interview with a homeless (or "displaced" as some say) couple by Youtuber AlohaRevolution is worth a watch.

"Two residents of Thomas Square tell the story of how they were abused by the City and HPD. Filmed on the eve of the expected Bill 7 raids on the houseless (which were deemed unconstitutional bu the US Supreme Court, but are scheduled anyway)."


Here's a primer on Swastika-ready Bill 7 by Ground Level Media.

More as the Bill 7 story unfolds...

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
