December 27, 2013 Kailua Protest

Protest @ Paradise Point in Kailua

Thanks to everyone who was able to participate in the December 27, 2013 protest in Kailua.  The peaceful demonstration was held on N Kalaheo Ave in Kailua, just outside President Obama’s vacation home.  We had a great turnout, and even got to share the message with the President and his motorcade as they left for dinner about 6PM.  Following are some pictures of this successful event to raise awareness of the Trans-Pacific Partnership:

Fortunately, the Secret Service and the HPD were very professional and alerted the protesters to stand aside for the President's motorcade.

The protesters shined a light on the TPP at the nearby Aikahi Park Shopping Center.  (This was the former Sizzler building.)
