Last week, Matador’s Ian MacKenzie continued his coverage of the Occupy protests with this video filmed with the Occupy Maui crew.

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.”

    Isn’t Monsanto the same company that manufactured Agent Orange during the Vietnam war era?  Uh, I see they’re still up to their dirty tricks. ;(

Hungary does not permit genetically modified crops, even Monsanto's.
You’ve begun squashing dissent within your ranks.
A couple hundred demonstrators still maintain homeless encampments throughout NYC.
Burning Man, the emerging paradigm shift, and how your mind has become occupied.
"Millions of people are deciding that enough is enough."
I see a lot more than just over-privileged "kids" asking people to do their laundry.
I believe it is now time for the Occupy Movement to come out of beta.
