Mickey Mouse protester arrested

Protesters dressed as Disney characters Mickey Mouse and Snow White have been arrested after police said they failed to obey an officer.

The characters were protesting over work contracts at Disneyland Hotel in California.

Police said they started making arrests after they repeatedly asked the protesters to clear the road.

Union workers said Disney wanted to change the wage system and cut healthcare benefits.

Disney officials said they were willing to talk with workers about issues with their contracts.

There is no sound to accompany parts of this video.
