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.
