Lady Gaga Flash Mob Protests Hotel
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."
