Lady Gaga Flash Mob Protests Hotel

Categories: Labor, internets

If choreographed dancing, adaptations of Lady Gaga hits, and viral internet videos replace the traditional protest standbys of "What do we want?..." and "Two, four, six, eight..." -- well, we're all right with that.

The above video is the May 8 targeting of the Westin St. Francis hotel by San Francisco Pride at Work, One Struggle One Fight, and the Brass Liberation Orchestra. At issue: The hotel workers' struggle for a labor contract.

Supposedly overheard at the conclusion of this "direct action": "It's more fun to protest with the gays, cause we've got the attitude and we know how to dance."
