The rally comes weeks after Disney announced it would lay off 28,000 employees, in part because of the reluctance of Governor Gavin Newson and other government officials to lift restrictions that would allow the park and others in the state to reopen.
“We want Disneyland to reopen. I’m one of the 28,000 cast members who have been fired now since March,” said one employee. “If Disneyland is open all over the world, why can’t Disneyland in Anaheim not be open? I think the governor should give us a chance to open, and they keep asking, but he keeps pushing the bar further.”;
