Healani Sonoda-Pale, center, led a rally fronting the state Capitol on Thursday afternoon against an emergency proclamation on homelessness over fear that the order will allow the governor to disregard laws protecting cultural and environmental sites. Gov. Josh Green revised his proclamation to state that any use of a site to shelter the homeless must be respectful of the environment, burial sites and Hawaii history.
