All of the women lefton the land agreed thatthey'd rather be draggedoff the property than leavevoluntarily. They met fre quently, over coffee anddoughnuts from the corner ABCstore, to discuss the eviction, theiroptions and their fate. Finally, onJune 2, two days before they weredue to be evicted, they decided thatas a statement of protest against theeviction and the destruction ofaffordable rentals for luxury con dominiums, thetJ would barricadethemselves into one of the emptybuildings on the lot after midnighton June 4 and stay there until thetJwere arrested. No one thought thatwould take very long.Early in 1990, a Japanesecorporation called U.S.A. Penseebegan buying properties clus tered in a block of Waikikibound by Kapili Street andLiliuokalani Avenue aridbisected by Tusitala Street. Thearea, the former home ofHawaiian royalty (see sidebar),contained a number of old, sin-gle-story wooden cottages anda few low-rise apartment build ings. About 75 people lived onthe block, which, despite its loca tion in the core. of Waikiki, wasquite a popular place: jobs, thebus and the beach were allnearby, rents were low andneighbors were friendly. Despitethe ubiquitous sex, drugs andcrime of Waikiki, Tusitala Street(as the block was known) was afairly quiet area.U.S.A. Pensee spent approx imately 31 million buying upproperty in the block. OncePensee had acquired the area,The Property Managers, Ltd., alocal property management firmheaded by P.J. Moore stepped into do just that. Moore sent noti fication to the tenants that theProperty Managers were nowhandling the properties and sheand Tom Patas, a PropertyManagers representative, visitedthe neighborhood to inspect theproperties and talk with the res idents.Area residents who wereapproached by the company sayContinued on page 4

Dur ing the 19th century andmost of the 20th, newspa pers were owned by families or by their publishers. Whenold-style owners sold their papersto large corporations the drivingforce behind the newspaperchanged. Now shareholders dictatethat the most important feature ofa newspaper is the bottom line ofthe balance sheet.Because media occupy a spe cial place in our society (as well asin our constitution) a strictly bot tom line approach undermines thevalue of the press to society.Capitalism's strength is its effi ciency and newspaper chains arevery efficient. Chains cut costs byusing wire services and syndicatedcolumns rather than local journal ists. And while corporate ownershave nothing against muckraking,except perhaps its price, they havea tendency to avoid controversy andmake the editorial product utterlyinoffensive (some call itMcJoumalism).Joint operating agreements(JOAs) have contributed to thedecline of regional publishing. TheHonolulu Star-Bulletin and theHonolulu Advertiser were amongthe first papers in the country to forma joint partnership for operations.Originally, this arrangement was cre ated to ensure the survival of twoseparate editorial voices while sta bilizing the papers' financial health.JOAs have certainly con tributed to the survival and well being of daily papers. In fact, theyhave created secure monopolies.But they've failed to create inde pendent editorial voices. Althoughthere are some differences betweenHonolulu's two dailies, the differ ences are insignificant. To under stand the potential power of thatdifference, one need only look atAnchorage's daily papers, whichoperate without any such partner ship. You could never mistake oneof Anchorage's dailies for theother-on almost any issue theyMauka to Makaihave radically different points ofview.Today there are 19 JOAs inthe country and there is little evi dence that they have ensured thecontinuation of what the SupremeCourt once called "an uninhibitedmarketplace of ideas, in which truthwill ultimately prevail."A new type of newspaper isemerging to fill the gap created bythe movement toward maximumprofitability. Newsweeklies havesprung up around the country-inmajor urban areas like SanFrancisco and Boston and in smallercities as well-cities like Lafayette,Louisiana and Chico, California.These publications varygreatly from in design, in editorialvoice, and in their politics. But byand large they are run and producedby people who feel they can makea difference in their communities.We at the Honolulu Weeklyaspire to make such a difference andprovide Honolulu with anothervoice.

InHonolulu, affordable hous ing usually means livingwith parents and siblings orsharing a place with room mates and splitting the rent. Formost, it does not mean owning ahome - Honolulu's high housingcosts and low wages conspire to pre vent the majority of island residentsfrom possessing property.By the state's own predictions,85,000 housing units must be builtby the year 2000 to keep up withthe expected demand for housing inthe state. Of those, 64,000 unitsmust be "affordable," priced far lessthan the cost of a median single family home (which on Oahu is cur rently about 355,000. The U.S.median is approximately 107,000).Gov. John Waihee has said thathe thinks at least 95 percent of theneed for affordable housing can bemet by building a combination ofsingle-family homes, town housesand rental units. The state breaksthis 61,000 unit goal down to:- 28,000 built by the state;- 5,600 built by the four counties;- 27,000 built by a myriad of private developers with the help ofgovernment incentives;- 1,300 built by the federal gov ernment for military families.There are basically two typesof affordables, rentals and those forsale, according to George White,spokesperson for the state Housing,Finance andDevelopmentCorporation, the three-year-oldagency charged with implementingthe state's housing plan.Rental UnitsBuying a house is out of the ques tion if you're one of the approxi mately 82,000 Oahu families whoearn 80 percent or less of the medianincome. State representatives saythey plan to create affordable rentalapartments by offering privatedevelopers tax incentives and con struction loans to build, a rather ten uous sounding plan.

Eviction onTusitala StreetContinued from page 1they were assured they would beable to stay in their homes for atleast two or three more years.They say they were told thatPensee had no plans to developthe land at that point (theProperty Managers deny this andrefused to discuss this story withthe Honolulu Weekly since thematter is currently in court).Some of the residents alsosay they were told that if theywanted to stay in their homesthey would have to fix them up;insurance was too difficult toobtain unless the repairs weremade. Several residents madeimprovements. Donald Bain,who had lived at 239 Kapili St.for 20 years, rewired his two story house; Frank Sarivalas, asingle father of two, repaired hisroof and floors and clearedunderbrush for a lawn; LindaLehmann, who had recentlymoved into the neighborhoodafter four earlier evictions inWaikiki, all due to development,built a fence and repainted herapartment.The Property Managersraised some rents, in some caseswithout giving residents therequired 45-day notice for a rentincrease. Bain and his wife,Liz.a.beth Ball, saw their rent jump from 500 a month to 1,500. Other tenants complained of hav ing rents raised three or moretimes within a few months or of0 having to pay more rent than had§ originally been agreed upon.::t:On Nov. 28, 1990, Steve Cohen, the real estate broker who.had bought the land for Pensee - and turned himself into hisr-,; company's number one broker";, in the country in the process sent Moore a letter stating, "A new directive has come from1 '"'-I'-Japan." The letter instructed TheProperty Managers to give alltenants 120 days notice to move.Eviction notices were sent out,but several gave tenants only 60days to find new homes.On the eve of thefinal eviction,a combination press conference, rallyand party was held. Liz had weededand raked a vacant lot for the occa sion and several people had set upchairs, tables and Hibachis. Formerresidents of the area mingled amongthe hold-outs, trading stories fromthe housing front with those who'dremained. T he press weren't due toshow 'til 7 p.m. but by 5:30 p.m. peo ple were mounting soapboxes. JohnMiller,former chairman of Friends ofTusitala Street, took over the miniP.A. system to act as an impromptuemcee. Many of those who spokelooked faintly embarrassed at first,uninitiated as they were to the art ofpolitical spP.echmaking. But almostall warmed to their topic once theywere handed the microphone, andspoke at length about their frustra tions, anger and sense of powerless ness. A slew of seasoned activistswere on hand - John Witeck, NoelKent, George Cooper, Marion Kelly,Richard Port, Mike Wilson, Ho'oipoDeCambra - and they lent an air ofprofessionalism to the proceedings;land struggles were nothing new forthem. Not a single politician was pre sent.Residents who received thenotices were shocked. They saythat they were angry that theyhad been lied to, that they hadfixed their homes in order toremain in the neighborhood, thatthey had agreed to massive rentincreases only to be told theywould have to leave.Some of the residentsdecided they would try to fightthe eviction. With the help ofGerri Lee of the WaikikiCommunity Cenfer, Sarivalasorganized a community meetingon Dec. 6.The meeting was attendedby property manager Moore,realtor Cohen, then-councilman elect Andy Mirikitani, Sen. BertKobayashi and Philip Doi of theState Office of ConsumerProtection. Cohen talked atlength about his first impressionsof the property. Uninhabitable,he said, citing the presence of catfeces on one property. He andMoore assured residents theywould help them relocate. Oneof the residents asked whenPensee planned to develop theland. Cohen replied he didn'tknow, that the company was stillin the planning stage and at thatpoint had not applied for anygovernment permits. Anothertenant asked Cohen why he hadonly been given 60 days tovacate. Cohen explained that theunit, a cottage on Tusitala Street,was too old to insure.Doi questioned the tenantsabout their notices and informedthem that since their homes wereto be demolished, under the lawthey all had 120 days to vacate (ifbuildings are slated for demoli tion, the law requires 120 daysnotice). Doi also told Cohen thatbecause of the 60-day noticesthere was a chance that theProperty Managers could befound to have committed decep tive trade practices, a civil liabil ity. Cohen then asked whatwould happen if Pensee decidednot to demolish.At that point, Sen.Kobayashi challenged Cohen."Did you declare that U.S.A.Pensee had every intention ofbuilding a condo?" he asked.Cohen said, yes, he had. "Can acondo be built without houses onthe property being demolished?"Kobayashi asked. No, Cohenreplied. "Then they will bedemolished?" Kobayashi asked.Yes, replied Cohen.Kobayashi informed the ten ants that a 120-day written noticemust be given if a company plansto demolish. He added that a lackof insurance is not a valid reasonto evict.The politicians recom mended that the residents lodgecomplaints with the Office ofConsumer Protection. Mirikitanitold the tenants he would set upa meeting with representativesof Pensee.The tenants were thrilledthat they didn't have to moveright away. One young man gotup and testified that Patas hadwarned him not to show up forthe meeting, since those whospoke against the managementwere likely to be evicted quickly."But here I am," he said, "and itlooks like we've won!"At 7 p.m.,TV crews showed up to get theevening's sound bites. Tripods wereerected, cameras activated. Reporterswandered through the crowd, lookingfor subjects to interview. The mauvesky was temporarily cut by blasts ofartificial light as residents squintedinto unfamiliar lenses and attemptedto tell their tales of woe in a minuteor less.Darkness had fallen when therally's last speaker, a young manwith a look of dazed rapture, asked.everyone to join hands and pray.Activists and tenants stood linkedtogether as he intoned, "We are theFonner Tusitala Street residents Beth Allen, Uzabeth Ball andMichelle Corder.PRIVATEPROPEpeople of the earth. We are the peoplethat love and care for each other. Maythat go on and on forever." With that,the meeting disintegrated into littleanimated pockets and the barbecueswung into action. Snatches of con versation filled the air: "We did allthe wrong things . " "You're pay- ing how much?" "When are youleaving for the Mainland?" "Is thereketchup?"The next day (ironically, Dec.7), four residents who'd volun teered to act on the tenants'behalf met and formed theFriends of Tusitala StreetCommittee. The group began tomeet on a weekly basis and itgrew. Eventually, Miller waselected chairman, Ball waselected vice chairman. Bain,Sarivalas, Lehmann and otherarea residents Carl Mossman andMichelle Corder were members.By mid-December, theFriends of Tusitala Street were upand active. They sent notices toeveryone in the neighborhoodadvising them that they didn'thave to move for 120 days. Theyprinted outsized notes for a visu ally impaired tenant, got aSpanish translator for anotherand returned again and again toa disabled elderly woman whohad difficulty understandingthem. They waged a letter-writ ing campaign, gathered signa tures on petitions and researchedWaikiki evictions. Members tes tified at the City Council in favorof a bill that would impose amoratorium on development inWaikiki until the end of the year,at the Legislature for fair hous ing bills.The Friends spent a greatdeal of time getting people to filetheir complaints against U.S.A.Pensee and the PropertyManagers with the Office ofConsumer Protection. The OCPdidn't do too much with the com plaints; after the communitymeeting on Dec. 6, the PropertyManagers had reissued evictionnotices to reflect the 120-dayrequirement and CommissionerDoi said he felt his office haddone all it was prudent to do.Mirikitani, true to his word,set up a meeting with U.S.A.Pensee for Jan. 4. On the day ofthe meeting, however, no legalrepresentative from Penseeshowed up. Subsequent attemptsto meet with the company's rep resentatives also failed.Thoroughly frustrated,Miller tried to call Pensee's head quarters in Osaka, Japan. Thenumber he ended up dialingturned out to be the home num ber of Pensee's president, ShojiNakamoto. Miller later learnedthat the call had incensedNakamoto; Pensee's attorneys,the firm of McCorriston, Miho &Miller, informed the tenants thatNakamoto had taken it as athreat. According to Ball and Lee,McCorriston said the call hadmade Nakamoto want to bringon the bulldozers. McCorristondenies ever mentioning bulldoz ers at the meeting.On Jan. 28, Pensee came upwith an offer to area residentsthat contained incentives to movequickly. The plan basically said,the sooner you leave, the morecompensation you'll get. To resi dents who moved by Feb. 28,Pensee offered a three-month rentrebate (paid directly to the next

-landlord) . To residents whomoved by March 31, the rebatewas good for two months of rent.In addition, the company offeredto provide moving assistance andto sign people up for a housingreferral service. In return, tenantswere made to sign a releaseagainst Pensee.The deal, which wasreferred to by Pensee's publicrelations man Jim Boersema as"the best relocation package everin Hawaii," was negotiatedbetween Lee of the CommunityCenter and Pensee's lawyers and,to a lesser extent, Mayor FrankFasi's office and Mirikitani. The deal had no relation to the ten ants' request, which was to beallowed to stay in their homesuntil Pensee had received pre liminary approval for its projectfrom the city.Nonetheless, many residentsdecided to take the money andleave. Miller, who said the offerwas the best they would get, rec ommended everyone accept it.But a few individuals - Ball, Bain,Lehmann, Sarivalas, Beth Allenand Corder - continued their fightto remain on the land. They werestill mad about the way they hadbeen treated and didn't want thebuildings to be torn down untilPensee was given the go-aheadto build. "Why are you going todestroy affordable housing whenyou can't build anything on thelot anyway?" Bain asked.One by one, the residentsmoved out. Lehmann rememberswaking every morning to thesound of hammers and breakingglass as plywood was nailed overwindows and doors. March 12,to the tenants' surprise, the bull dozers arrived and the housesbegan to go down. On March 16,Ball was arrested at the Sarivalasresidence when she refused toleave the premises so the housecould be bulldozed.
