This video was taken in 2012 by a couple fisherman off the coast of Oahu. The shots of the shark are awesome, but the commentary is even better! Watch the video to learn some pidgin before your trip to Kauai ;).
On Saturday afternoon, in pouring rain, over 1000 people joined together and marched in demonstration that it is time for GMO experimentation to be removed from Hawaii.
"The march against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) caused momentary traffic delays along Po‘ipu Road, as protesters armed themselves with signs that read “GMO must go,” “Feed Kaua‘i, don’t bleed Kaua‘i,” “You are what U eat” and “Evict Monsanto.”
The marchers described themselves as safe food activists in a movement to encourage the state Legislature to pass a food labeling bill that has stalled in the Senate.
The protesters were comprised of island residents, local farmers and members of the organizations ‘Ohana O Kaua‘i, GMO Justice Coalition, GMO-Free Kaua‘i and Hawai‘i SEED.
This was the second of five weekly island marches that began March 2 at Hale‘iwa in O‘ahu. The marches continue on Big Island Saturday, followed by Maui on March 23 and Moloka’i on March 30.
The goal is to convince state senators to hold open hearings on the labeling issue. Organizers said one influential politician is Sen. Ronald Kouchi, who represents Kaua‘i and Ni‘ihau, and serves as Vice Chairman of the Agriculture Committee, as well as Vice President of the Senate."
