Musician sings Occupy-inspired protest song to the world's leaders

Hawaiian musician, Makana, was invited to perform some pleasant background music for the summit of APEC, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, which included the presence of Barack Obama.

Here is a video Makana posted that speaks to his conviction to sing the song:
