Don't get caught in a bad hotel

Palace Hotel workers hold signs as they walk a picket line during a three day work strike amidst stalled contract negotiations November 11, 2009 in San Francisco, California. Nearly 350 workers from the luxurious Palace Hotel are staging a three day work strike as contract negotiations with hotel management have stalled leaving many without a contract since mid-August. The temporary work strike follows a similar strike over one week ago when workers at the Hyatt Hotel also went on strike in an attempt to pressure management to continue negotiations and offer a fair contract with retirement and health benefits.

If you really must storm a meeting you can do it with finesse - does this not look like the protest you always wanted to go to?

The hotels in San Francisco are basically poor employers and workers are calling fora boycott of the hotels that do not provide health care and have poor working conditions. This is part of the Sleep with the Right People campaign - hotel workers campaign.
