Fantastic video, "WE ARE THE MANY, NOT THE FEW" sung as Obama played Banker's Pimp to Pacific nation leaders in Hawaii summit...

  And now, a brief note of creativity & good ol' American STANDING UP TO "the powers that be" -   
Popular Hawaii musician Makana, performing for  Obama and other heads of state... stages a sly, singing protest, with an unannounced  "Occupy" protest song sung as more than a dozen heads-of-state dined at an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation gala held at the "ultra-secure" Hale Koa hotel, managed by the U.S. Department of Defense.  <blockquote> 
“Your Thievery Has Left the People None … We Occupy [Until] You Do the Bidding of the Many, Not the Few”

Popular Hawaiian musician Makana was invited to sing for President Obama, Chinese leader Hu Jintao of China, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and more than a dozen other heads of state as part of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation gala in Hawaii.
Makana was only supposed to provide quiet Hawaiian background music.
Instead, he played – for 45 minutes straight – the “Occupy” song he had just written – “We Are the Many” – forcefully telling the 1% to their face that the 99% will keep protesting and occupying until we win:
"Your thievery has left the people none … We occupy the streets. We occupy the courts. We occupy the offices of you, ’til you do the bidding of the many, not the few."
Here is some footage of Makana actually playing to the world leaders, and his “post-game” comments: 

Makana’s musical action was assisted by the activist pranksters the Yes Men, who note:

The gala was the most secure event of the summit. It was held inside the Hale Koa hotel, a 72-acre facility owned and controlled by the US Defense Department; the site was fortified with an additional three miles of fencing constructed solely for the APEC summit.
Here's some of the ABJECT CORRUPTION that surrounds President Obama that Makana was singing about:   HANK PAULSON, then TREASURY SECRETARY under Pres. George W. Bush in Oct. 2008 - and former Goddamn-Sachs hedge-fund Chairman for 7 years prior to becoming Bush's T-Secretary - announced to his fellow hedge-fund moguls that LEHMAN Bros. banking firm was GOING BANKRUPT..... SEVEN WEEKS before the public was informed. 
   This "INSIDER TIP-OFF" allowed those mega-finance financiers to LOOT THE PUBLIC of BILLIONS of dollars of savings that "investors" UNKNOWINGLY PUMPED IN TO BUY financial stocks... at a time that the Paulson's fellow hedge fund titans were undoutably selling.
  Even more OUTRAGEOUS than the specter of INSIDERS DEFRAUDING American savers, pensioners, and investors with their inside-trading info... is that Paulson let Congress be caught unawares by the market meltdown, which he used, in textbook "DISASTER CAPITALISM" fashion, to extort $700 billion in taxpayer obligated "bailouts" from then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi... and, worse,  Paulson and career Goddamn-Sachs government toady Tim Geithner would start issuing up to TEN TRILLION MORE DOLLARS in  Fed created-out-of-thin-air money to 'bail out' the "Too Big Too Fail" banksters - with "Change you can not believe in" Obama's complacent, lackey complicity.

   IF you must give someone 'money' so they can lend it back to you... you have an INSANE financial system.
