Occupy Honolulu protesters, who had been camping on the sidewalk in front of Thomas Square, began breaking down their tents this morning.

The action follows the issuance of 24-hour removal notices on Wednesday under a new law prohibiting the storage of personal belongings on city sidewalks.

City crews stood by to remove any belongings left on the sidewalk along Beretania Street and Ward Avenue. But at about 9 a.m. two city dump trucks and city crews drove away to help cleanup the sidewalk around Aala Park, where about 17 removal notices were also issued to homeless campers on Wednesday.

Only four tents remained on the sidewalk in front of Thomas Square at 8:45 a.m.

4. Occupy protesters return to Thomas Square sidewalk

Ten Occupy Honolulu protesters spent the night camping on South Beretania Street fronting Thomas Square defying city officials who warned them against rebuilding the campsite they established on the sidewalk along South Beretania Street and Ward Avenue in November.

Madori Rumpungworn, who has been living at Thomas Square for the past three months, said she and several others are waiting to see what city officials do next.

"They want to tango," said the Ewa Beach resident and former Leeward Community College student, ""two can tango."

On Thursday, workers from the city Facility Maintenance and Parks and Recreation departments removed four tents and other items belonging to Occupy Honolulu protesters under a new ordinance which forbids storage of private items on government property.
