A Brief History of Children's Characters Getting Arrested

Mickey and Minnie Mouse

When: May 2011
Where: Burbank, CA

Two activists from the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) were arrested outside of Disney's headquarters while dressed as Mickey and Minnie Mouse. The pair were in the midst of a protest and banner-hanging; they unveiled a 35-foot masterpiece that read “Disney: Destroying Indonesia’s Rainforests" and blocked the company's entrance.

RAN asserts that Disney prints children's books with paper that is "driving the destruction of Indonesia’s rainforests." Way to put it all on the line for the cause, Bonnie and Clyde.
