Yesterday, The Courage Campaign organized a demonstration outside Disney headquarters over ABC's airing of their crock-u-drama "Path To 9-11."
Here's some video of the event.
A recap over the flip.
We had probably around 30 people there at its peak, waving colorful signs that said things like "Pull The Show", "Facts Not Fantasia" and "I'm Not Going To Disney Land." Hey, and even CNN showed up!
The best part for me was all the support we got from the passersby. Most cars that passed either honked or shouted support or gestured peace signs out their windows.
One woman stopped at the light, opened her window and yelled out to us "I support what you're doing. I'm a film producer so I have to be careful but I support you. I support the truth!" Then later, this guy just pulled up next to us and asked if he could join. We were like "Yeah!" so he parked and we gave him a sign. That was cool. You never know what you're gonna get when someone pulls up at one of these things. One guy who did, rolled down his window and yelled "ever hear of freedom of the press!" Umm, clearly you haven't, buddy. And then this other guy pulled up, got out and dropped off a box of flyers with Mohammed Atta's face with Mickey Mouse ears and then just drove away.
