VIDEO: Red-Faced Abercrombie Bickers With Protesters at Democrats Grand Rally in Hilo
BIVN: First, a “Free Hawaii” group marched to the edge of the bandstand, holding signs and shouting remarks about the illegal occupation of Hawaii by the United States.
Also, the gang from the Occupy Hilo movement, many in their “Guy Fawkes” masks, demanded to “Abolish the PLDC”… a protest against the controversial Public Land Development Corporation that Governor Neil Abercrombie and State Senator Malama Solomon advocated for last legislative session.
The governor was in attendance at the rally, and he appeared a bit irked by the opposition.
…the most tense moment of the night came a few minutes after Abercrombie’s statements, when activist Gene Tamashiro took the governor up on his challenge to participate.
Stalking the stage, Abercrombie bellows at the protesters: “Then join the Democratic Party and you get the faith and trust of people.”
