Flash Mob Targets Hyatt Hotel
10 Jul 2011
July 10, 2011 - Today at 5:00 PM, activists hit the Cambridge Hyatt with a flash mob protest to draw attention to the unfair labor practices of the hotel chain. Led by Boston Sass Attack, Boston's radical cheerleading squad, protesters performed a song and dance routine titled "Boycott Hyatt" to the tune of Beyonce's Single Ladies.

The Boston Hyatt is infamous for firing all their housekeepers in September 2009 and replacing them with lower paid workers sourced from an out-of-state agency. Protesters also released a banner reading "Boycott Hyatt" attached to helium balloons into the hotel atrium.

This work is in the public domain.
