March Against Monsanto in Honolulu

More than 1,000 people participated in the march through Waikiki in solidarity with the Global Day of Protest Against Monsanto.  Signs were creative and showed not only peoples' hatred of Monsanto but concern for the environment more broadly.  The crowd was energetic and loud.  All kinds of organizations represented - including World Can't Wait-Hawai`i (which led the march with their banner: "Humanity and the Planet Come First.")  There were people of all ages and ethnicities, and many wore green.   The march was seen and photographed by thousands of tourists and was covered on evening TV news and in the Sunday edition of the Star-Bulletin (although each carefully gave equal time to Monsanto spokespeople).   Following are a few photos from the march:
