NEWS 3: Culinary Union's "civil disobedience" on the Strip brings mixed reaction to the message, 58 arrests made

“We plan, with a group of shop steward workers, to have an act of civil disobedience. And it's in the tradition of Dr. King and Cesar Chavez–nonviolent civil disobedience,” Pappageorge told reporters ahead of his arrest.


“This massive hotel complex in Las Vegas doesn't happen without the workers. And I think most people understand that,” said Pappageorge. “And I think that if workers show that they're willing to do whatever it takes, including nonviolent civil disobedience, willing to get arrested, to fight for their contract and fight for their families, we think that's something that the public will support.”
