Activists plan rally outside Disney shareholder meeting in Denver on Wednesday, March 8; Will Iger side with hate, or with families?
DENVER â€“(ENEWSPF)â€”March 7, 2017.Â Â Community members and activists will protest outside the Walt Disney Company shareholders meeting in Denver on Wednesday, March 8, demanding that Disney CEO Bob Iger step down from Trumpâ€™s Business Advisory Council. Â The rally will take place at the Sculpture Park, Denver Performing Arts Complex, Champa Street and Speer Boulevard beginning at 9 a.m.
A coalition of organizations representing millions of people have come together to hold Disney accountable to families. They have collected petitions with a half-million signatures from throughout the country telling Iger that by teaming up with Trumpâ€™s collection of troubling characters, he is also aligning Disney with racism, anti-immigrant policies and endorsing the administrationâ€™s Muslim ban.
Disney has entertained generations of families. Now Iger is selling out those families, customers and workers in exchange for big corporate tax breaks. Disney is one of the corporations that would benefit most from Trumpâ€™s corporate tax cuts â€“ and families stand to lose the most.
In Denver, Disney shareholders have a chance to join more than a half-million people nationwide and tell Iger to be a prince and walk away from Donald Trump.
