Four people were arrested after protesting outside Burbank's Disney Studios, raising a banner reading "Disney: Destroying Indonesia's Rainforests."

Two of the protesters handcuffed themselves to the Disney sign, one dressed as Mickey and the other as Minnie. The protesters, wearing Disney hats, described themselves as "Indonesian rainforest protesters."

Firefighters cut the protesters loose and took them down, and they were then arrested.

The banner also has the logo of the Rainforest Action Network.
