Info links for the Hawaii Guerrilla Video Hui table at The Hawaii People's Fund Expo

It's easier sending someone to the DougNote.com than various URLs with numerals etc., so here are some links for the Hawaii Guerrilla Video Hui table presentation at The Hawaii People's Fund Expo on Saturday, November 8, 2014.


The Hawaii Guerrilla Video Hui is Laulani Teale, Kamuela Vance Viveiros, and H. Doug Matsuoka. 

At the time of the Hawaii People's Fund Expo, Kamuela was attending the Olelo Community Media's Volunteer Award ceremony, and Laulani Teale was on Kauai at the Aloha Aina Celebration in Kekaha. She was scheduled to perform with Liko Martin, and to livestream video to the Hawaii People's Fund Expo in the evening. Big mahalo to Karen Murray for helping me at the Hawaii Guerrilla Video Hui table at the Expo!

Laulani has been working with legendary poet/songwriter/musician Liko Martin, and just finished a 10 week stint at the Health Bar at Diamond Head Cove. I also wanted to have available of a livestream of a beautiful new song Liko wrote that I livestreamed from that venue:



I thought it might be good to be able click through some recorded livestreams to show how you just gotta be there sometimes (or all the time?):

(The "crowd" in the beginning was about half a dozen people. Rain, thunder, emergency warnings, closed roads. Click through the beginning to see how the crowd grows. Eventually it was 1,000 people defying the police (who pulled the demonstration permit) and weather (thunder and lightning) to demand the eviction of Monsanto from our aina.)

Of course, the value of livestreaming is being there when stuff is happening. And there's nothing saying you can't edit the footage once it's recorded. Here's a classic from 3/14/12: a raid on the deOccupy Honolulu corner at Ward and Beretania under cover of darkness:



As I type this, I'm listening to Liko and Laulani performing live from Kekaha. Here are some other links that might be fun and useful:

Kamu's stuff is all over Olelo and will post some links when I have time!

What The City Doesn’t Want You To Know About Thomas Square

[This article was originally published by CivilBeat on July 21, 2016. I'm reprinting it with video clips. Doug]

The City of Honolulu plans to close Thomas Square on Aug. 15 for six months and re-open it in February 2017 as something completely different, according to its master plan. Although city officials have unveiled grandiose plans concerning a drastic makeover, there are a number of troubling things they are trying to keep under cover:

1. It will no longer be a public park. The master plan calls for Thomas Square to be transferred from the city’s Department of Parks and Recreation, where it is a public park, to its Department of Enterprise Services. What is it? The department runs the Blaisdell Center, the Waikiki Shell, the zoo and the public golf courses. By way of a memo dated April 28 from the city’s enterprise chief Guy Kaulukukui to the state’s head of the Department of Land and Natural Resources, the city asked the state to make changes to allow a change of purpose for…

HCDA creates their own anti-homeless police at HAR hearing

While no one was watching, the HCDA (Hawaiʻi Community Development Authority) held  a Hawaii Administrative Rules hearing that creates their own anti-homeless police force, and (incidentally) raises park fees by up to 500%. The affected parks are at the intersection of Honolulu Council Districts 4, 5, and 6, (Trevor Ozawa, Ann Kobayashi, and Carol Fukunaga respectively) but none (or their staff) were present today. These laws were made without any oversight from the public or their elected representatives.

Who knew that such sweeping changes could be made without the oversight of any elected officials? And after one decision making hearing that is accountable to no one? If the Honolulu City Council had to rule on such changes, it would require three full council hearings, and opportunities for public participation at each.

My own interest in attending the hearing was to get some kind of hint as to the mechanism the City would use to curtail First Amendment rights in Thomas Square afte…

Eric Seitz: Pro bono is a crock

At yesterday's "Justice in Jeopardy, Expanding Access to Justice in Challenging Economic Times" at the UH Richardson Law School, Dean of Harvard Law School Martha L. Minow pointed out that one in five Americans now qualify for civil legal assistance because they are within 125% of the Poverty Level -- a record high in the history in the county. As the demand for legal services grows, the available resources continue to diminish, leaving most without the "equal protection" of the law.

I checked out the breakout session on pro bono because I used to work for Hawaii's pro bono referral service, Volunteer Legal Services Hawaii (VLSH).

These days, most pro bono services are not attorneys representing clients, but short informational sessions at legal clinics. Moderator Robert LeClair asked attorney Eric Seitz what he thought of this turn in pro bono services.  This is what Eric said:

"Well, let me start out by saying that I've always thought pro bono w…
