Occupy APEC: Makana, Hawaiian Guitarist, Makes Statement At Wakiki Event 

The Huffington Post    Posted: 11/13/11 04:15 PM ET

A musician took a stand at last night’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation gala, which was attended President Obama and a slew of world leaders.

Hawaiian guitarist Makana, who has performed at the White House, wore a shirt that read “Occupy With Aloha” and played a song inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests.

“We’ll occupy the streets, we’ll occupy the courts, we’ll occupy the offices of you, till you do the bidding of the many, not the few,” he sang at the Wakiki event. “The time has come for us to voice our rage.”

The tune, “We Are the Many”, ran for 45 minutes long.

Hawaii locals joined the national movement last month, gathering in Honolulu’s financial district. When the protesters tried to make camp, several were arrested.
