    Translation:

    Two Students were arrested by HK Police for staging a demonstration against Disney inside HKDL. The incident happened sometime around 4pm while the parade was almost finished.

    They are members of SACOM (Students and Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior). They protested that Disney should end SweatShops in China!!!

    that first photo looks like it's photoshopped, I cant imagine that woman and kid looking away and waving at something instead of being distracted by a guy on the ground getting arrested

    Lightbulbs, unions, workers rights, students...Disney should totally cash in on this and just make the protests part of the regular parade schedule.

    Why not? We've already had photographers marching down Main Street at Disneyland Paris protesting before the parade!

    ORWEN: Well, I thought the Disney management types had made an announcement several years ago that they were getting OUT of the Sweat shop business! Are you trying to tell me they just LIED to all of us about that?!

    HAHAHA Katsmom!!! You should come to WDW some time soon, and bring a gas mask.

    As for the photo in the first post.... it only goes to show that things like this can only happen at HKDL and possibly at TDR? NO ONE in their right mind would ever lie down on those filthy floors at WDW or DLP's (not sure about DLR lately...) But at least TDR and HKDL floors are scrubbed cleaned.

    BTW... good for them kids. Stop America's sweatshops in the far east!!
