City officials today moved tents and other belongings of (de)Occupy Honolulu members from the sidewalk in front of the Blaisdell Concert Hall on King Street.

The action was taken after Oahu Transit Services, operator of TheBus, complained that the items hindered access to the bus stop, city spokesman Jesse Broder Van Dyke said.

Sugar Russell, a (de)Occupy Hono­lulu member, has said group has taken great pains to ensure that tents and other structures leave at least 36 inches of clearance for people to pass by, the minimum allowed under current law, based on accessibility guidelines in the Americans with Disabilities Act.
