Petition demands Governor Newsom to reopen California’s DisneyLand


A petition is urging Gov. Gavin Newsom to reopen California’s theme parks, which were momentarily closed down because of the pandemic, while demonstrators plan to rally outside Disneyland on Saturday.

“Governor, we urge you to use the science and data to allow these parks to open now,” the petition, circulated by the California Attractions and Parks Association, says. “Besides offering Californians a safe and fun outdoor activity during these bleak Pandemic days, these parks directly employ tens of thousands of people and entire communities have been built around them.”

The total amount of people who have signed the letter hasn’t been revealed.

Meanwhile, an activist group that wants Newsom to release standards for the parks’ resuming has actually scheduled a rally outside Disneyland’s entryway at 8 a.m. Saturday.

“We will be standing for all the 28,000 cast members who were laid off and with more to come if the gates stay closed,” a Facebook post about the event says.

In Orange County, the regional economy has suffered greatly since the shutdown of Disneyland, California Adventure and Knott’s Berry Farm.

The same group that is organizing Saturday’s demonstration is also collecting signatures in an effort to recall Newsom.
