Disney: Don’t Trademark Day of the Dead!
The Walt Disney Company filed 33 applications on May 1st to trademark “Day of the Dead” in anticipation of a future film. That Disney intends to make money off the name of a cultural holiday celebrated by millions of people of Mexican and Central American heritage is awful enough. That they intend to file for ownership of the name and tradition is downright unacceptable and incredibly offensive.
Previously, Disney attempted to trademark the Navy SEAL team that captured Osama Bin Laden, but after outrage from the public, it was forced to withdraw that application citing “deference to the Navy.” If we send a strong enough message to Disney this time around, it will be forced to also withdraw applications to avoid another public relations disaster.
Tell Disney that culture is NOT for sale. Sign this petition calling on Disney’s CEO & chairman to immediately withdraw all applications to trademark Day of the Dead. If we get over 15,000 signatures, we’ll personally deliver it to Disney headquarters. Can you help us get there by signing and sharing?
Sign a petition telling Disney that what they are doing is offensive to an entire culture. Sign here
BOOOSTTTTTTT. BOOOST EVERYWHERE. BOOOST AND SIGN
fucked up, Disney.

i have been looking for this audio post for months
it’s way too early for me to be laughing about this
I can’t believe bands actually play 21+ shows. I’ve done it in the past. Don’t want to do it again.
I was ranting about this at work a couple weeks ago. It used to be when I was young that the scene in Richmond VA revolved around all ages shows. These days people think a show is permissive and highly accessible if it’s 18+ instead of 21+. All the kids I know who throw local house shows either make them BYOB or have kegs, which means that if the cops show up, anyone under 21 that’s in attendance would be in deep shit. Hell, one of the local house show houses cards people at the door and won’t let people under 21 in. When I was younger, the entire point of doing house shows was to be as accessible as possible. We generally didn’t allow drinking so that we could do the shows all ages. The fact that house shows in town these days don’t allow underage kids so that they can have drinking at the shows seems all kinds of ass-backwards to me. Also, I never hear about local clubs booking early all-ages shows. The place that was most consistently in favor of such things when I was growing up changed management a couple of years ago and is now run by kids who used to go to shows there when they were younger. And those people hardly EVER book a show that starts before 10 PM. I guess they are concerned about losing business during dinner hours and I understand they can’t do shows if they can’t pay their rent, but it still sucks.
And I mean, I’m 37, so none of the local scene’s newfound apathy towards teenagers affects me, but I started going to shows when I was 15 and I would hate to have felt locked out of the scene for the first 3 to 6 years I was into underground music because nobody in town thought it was worth the trouble to do all ages shows. Maybe I’m some grouchy old stick in the mud who isn’t in touch with the way the kids of today feel about stuff, but to me the lack of concern surrounding this issue in my local scene is goddamn poisonous. Nobody seems to care and I do not get it.
