Residents of Mayor Wright Housing to picket Friday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After years of sporadic hot water, the tenants of Mayor Wright Housing will peacefully picket Washington Place and the State Capitol Friday.

Mayor Wright Housing residents believe children should not have to eat off dishes washed in cold water, nor should infants and the elderly bathe in cold water.

Parishioners from St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church will also join the demonstration which takes place from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
