Muera Mickey Rat!

{Las mujeres, resistiendo / Disney is unfaithful!}

Despite economic hard times for most people and businesses in the United States, the tourism driven Disney corporation posted record profits. In spite of this – and really, as if it could be any other way – Disney sees it fit to cut health benefits to service employees at three of its major resort area hotels; Paradise Pier, The Grand Californian, and the Disneyland Hotel. This greed driven attack against a mostly Latina workforce is a terrible injustice. In response, Unite Here! Local 681 organized a march and rally that culminated in acts of civil disobedience that shut down Harbor Blvd for two hours in front of Disneyland. More than a thousand people showed up in solidarity and support! Take THAT Disney! Fuck you Mickey Mouse!

{The rally outside of Paradise Pier Hotel. Disney refers to its workers as “cast members” but in reality treats them as lower members of a caste}

{The line of marchers was so long, I felt like I was in Disneyland waiting to get on the Indiana Jones ride!}

{The demonstrators take Harbor Blvd in front of the Disneyland Entrance and shut it DOWN!}

{A sit down in one of the most important commercial intersections in Anaheim! Goofy can’t hold us back!}

{The Anaheim pigs started arresting protesters dressed as Disney characters. I’m contacting CAIR as we speak as Aladdin was clearly subjected to post 9-11 racial profiling. They said he was checking out Disneyland as a potential target! Oh and afterwards, we rallied for the release of our in character comrades. Free Huey! …and Dewey and Louie! Free the Ducktales 3!}
