another reason to hate Disney
01 Jul 2000
The Disney Corporation supports GE and the Monsanto Corp.
Last week, my mom made me go to Disney World with my family. i already knew about Disney's numerous human rights violations, but i was surprised and appalled to see that Disney World has become nothing more than a a 47-square-mile billboard. Corporations have booths and adverstisments everywhere under the ruse that they are "rides" and "learning centers." Not only did the World Bank have a display, but also, in the "Innoventions" section of Epcot Center, Monsanto had a booth under the banner of "farming for the future." There was a Disney staff member manning the booth in a Monsanto shirt. i asked him a few questions and wasn't surprised to see that he didn't know much about GE. He could recite a bunch of tripe about the Colorodo Potato Plant but knew nothing of the ethical questions concerning GE. It was sad...he was just a kid like me, no more than 20. i could have attacked his position, but what kind of battle would that have been? He was just a kid doing his job. This is just another example of how we must attack the corporations themselves. i think that what the Anarchist Golfing Association and other groups that are destroying GE experiments and facilities is awesome. There's a long way to go, but this movement is a great start.
