Mickey and Minnie Protest Disney Rainforest Destruction at Company HQ
United States, May 18 2011
Early this morning, two activists supporting Rainforest Action Network unfurled a 35 foot banner across The Walt Disney Company's two-story entrance arch that reads "Disney: Destroying Indonesia's Rainforests." Beneath them, Mickey and Minnie Mouse locked down to the main entrance gates to the company's Burbank headquarters-blockading Disney's executives from arriving to work through the main gates.
Please support these brave activists by taking action today. Tell Disney CEO Robert Iger that rainforest destruction is no fairy tale.
This bold action sends a loud message to Disney's top executives that
it is unacceptable for them to continue to drag their feet when they
have known for over a year that paper in Disney's children's books has
been proven to be connected to rainforest destruction and species
extinction in Indonesia.
UPDATE: 9am pst.
A swarm of police officers and fire trucks arrived at the Disney headquarters this morning and arrested Mickey and Minnie Mouse, using bolt cutters to break through the chains attaching them to the entrance gates. Above, a fire truck raised its ladder to cut down the banner and arrest the two climbers attached to the two story arch.
The arrested activists were Christopher Toomey, Jennifer Binstock, Blake Hodges and Alexis Dickason-Soto, all residents of the Los Angeles area. The activists are in the custody of the Burbank Police and charges are pending.
Though the protest lasted just short of an hour, this was time enough for helicopter and satellite news trucks to arrive and record the colorful scene.
