Hawaiian Singer’s “Occupy” Song At Obama Summit

With the refrain, “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,” Hawaiian singer Makana’s song, “We Are The Many,” “turned a top-security dinner of Pacific Rim leaders hosted by President Barack Obama into a subtle protest with a song in support of the ‘Occupy’ movement.” The video was posted prior to the dinner on November 10 and though the roughly 400 protesters, including activists for native Hawaiian rights and those against globalization, initially planned to march towards the dinner site, they were changed their plans in light of the mass amounts of security.
