The Bidding of the Many, Not the Few: APEC Gets Occupied and Serenaded

by

Performing at what was probably the most secure place on the planet - an APEC dinner attended by President Obama and about 20 world leaders - Hawaiian musician Makana opened his suit jacket to reveal an “Occupy with Aloha” T-shirt and then spent 45 minutes repeatedly singing his terrific, newly released protest song, "We Are the Many." Makana's action was assisted by the Yes Lab and Occupy the Boardroom.

“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.”
