Walt Disney World CM’s to march against company vaccine mandate

From Fox35 Orlando

On Friday, Walt Disney World cast members plan to march against the company’s recent COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The organizer says many cast members are worried about what will happen after Saturday’s deadline for getting at least one dose of the vaccine. They reportedly could face being fired if they refuse.

“We understand that COVID-19 is a very real health concern that we all have to take seriously,” said event organizer Nick Caturano, “but many cast members have a legitimate basis for refusing vaccination.”

Caturano says Disney employees are resisting the forced vaccinations for a variety of reasons including health concerns, religious beliefs, natural immunity, and a principled commitment to maintaining control over their own health care.

“So many cast members felt alone and felt like they were the only ones who thought this was wrong,” says Caturano.  “I think we were made to feel that way on purpose. But we have connected now, and we are pushing back.”

The march begins  at 12151 S. Apopka Vineland Rd. Participants are expected to walk up and down Lake Buena Vista Boulevard through the middle of Disney World.

A similar protest is scheduled for Friday in Anaheim, California.
