Why not give these poor unfortunate people a ride up Mauna Kea where there is a nice camp with food,water and clean restroom facilities run by compassionate people full of the Aloha spirit ?

The County now plans to take additional action against the illegal downtown encampment. However there is a "surprising" new development in the story. The camp has a new name in addition to their affiliation with the Hawaiian Kingdom. Will this provide them with the same professional courtesies and legal exemptions as Mauna Kea Access Road protestors who also have erected illegal structures, and interfere with free passage by the public? Stay tuned

The fences around the camp are festooned with signs and banners declaring the camp as part of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Since the start of the protests against the Thirty Meter Telescope began in mid-July, a sign reading “Saddle House” was placed on the main gate to the camp,

Rose (the lot owner)... stated in April that she intends to restore executive power to the Hawaiian monarchy and that “corporate power” is unlawful on her property, which she claims to be “in the lawful Hawaiian Kingdom.”

Also from the article, our own local unsolved mystery:
Residents of the camp generate a lot of noise, Agasa said, from playing loud music to using hammers and power tools for some unclear purpose.

Also barricades and a traffic signal. Have any celebrities visited the downtown camp yet?

using hammers and power tools for some unclear purpose

What business is it of ours? I use hammers and power tools all the time, nobody ever speculates as to my purposes.

But now... you may have people wondering?


I found the disconnect between the dots of interest:

Dot 1: progressing from a vacant lot to a fenced-off collection of tents and makeshift structures built on a concrete foundation. “There’s more and more people there now

Dot 2: using hammers and power tools for some unclear purpose.

Maybe we need CSI-Hilo on the case. If necessary, I know some on-island Scots should the County want to set up a branch of Hilo - Scotland Yard.

As a Punatic, I think all of the Hawaiian Homelands and OHA lands should be turned over to joint ownership of all the people they were left for. Let them manage and build on them how they will, aside from not creating pollution or disturbing their neighbors. We in Puna like to live close to the land and hammer together shacks, why can't they? Work out who gets to build where the old fashioned way. Continue all US government benefits for two-five years so the homeless can get established and begin to provide for themselves on their land, and Hawaiians who choose to can move there, establish farms and communities and support systems for the less fortunate and those transitioning.

Update on the downtown camp:
The fines continue, along with construction of new "elaborate" and "unpermitted development:"

The owners of a downtown Hilo property that has become a homeless encampment have accrued nearly $200,000 in fines after failing to remove illegal structures for the better part of a year.

Court documents allege the owners have consistently blocked access to the property for inspectors, while the lot continues to display inadequate sanitation and is a nuisance to surrounding properties,

but ... but ... the owners are claiming that their land is in the Hawaiian Kingdom! Which is totally acceptable at Uncle Robert's or the Mauna Kea Access Road, so why not downtown? Is it a 14th amendment violation yet?

Plot twist: it's kalakoa's property and he's already gearing up for his 14th amendment challenge.

After one year, the downtown homeless camp is no more. 50 County workers and police removed structures and contents:

Another report stated action was taken after criminal activity was reported. What was the tipping point, as illegal camping and unpermitted construction had occurred long ago?

I noticed on Thursday and Friday more random homeless people around Hilo with carts of stuff and was wondering what changed.
