Occupy Maui took place January 23-30 to protest Monsanto, a biotech company that — among many other activities — is growing genetically modified research crops in Kihei on the island.
There was a different theme for each day of the protest week, ranging from “Round-up Day” to expose the widely used herbicide, to “Government Corruption Day” to spotlight Monsanto’s influence in government, to “Get to Know Your Food Day,” a.k.a. “Occupy your Local Farmer’s Market.”
This film features the musical artist HUMAN joining Occupy Maui and singing what has become the anthem for the movement, “Monsanto Go Away.”
