Is this coming to Savannah? Clearing tent cities: Deadline nearing for homeless to relocate – Hawaii News Now – KGMB and KHNL


Deadline nearing for homeless to relocate – Hawaii News Now – KGMB and KHNL.

This is NOT the way to clear the streets & camps of the homeless! YES, there are better ways like 100,000 Homes Campaign! Clearing Tent Cities without solutions (and NOT shelters) is not the compassionate way to deal with the issue! When will governments & communities get that? It’s up to advocates to hold them accountable for their actions!

From the article with video for the news report (there’s a Part 1 & Part 2 on the website):

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Dozens of homeless people with personal belongings on sidewalks or in parks in the Moiliili and Pawaa areas were told to move it or lose it.

People have until Tuesday morning to move out or get cleared out.

From Facebook:

So it looks as though the homeless are being cleared out of Stadium Park AGAIN! (sheesh!) A gentleman who was formerly #homeless talked about getting out of it but also stated, “I think that the state could’ve done a better job in preparing these guys a little more options and a little more time to figure out what they want to do. Because in order for you to get off of the streets, you really need some help. You can’t do it alone with the way that the economy is…”

Followup comment:

Part two showing the clearance of homeless and their items from the Stadium Park. Now, I’m curious to know as to WHY in these two videos NOONE has questioned the homeless as to what it is that they need or could help them better transition out of their current situations. What are their needs? What is it that can be done to help them besides move them around? I just don’t get it! (???)
