(Honolulu Advertiser) - Remaining campers at Makua Beach
celebrated Father's Day, given that by Gov. Ben Cayetano, as he
kept his promise that he wouldn't evict the campers over the
weekend. About 40 campers remain from a population that was once
about 300. The state wants to move the campers out of the area to
make it into a park.
Cayetano had set a Saturday deadline for the campers to leave
or face eviction. But last week he gave them a reprieve, saying
that evictions wouldn't take place until after Father's Day.
Sparky Rodrigues, a Makua Council member, said they expected
the state officials to arrive before dawn on Monday. He said,
"The campers would be ready." The Makua Council had
organized classes on peacefully resisting arrest.
Rodrigues said, "Our enemy is not the cops, it's the
governor and the way the state laws are written."
