Banksy hits Disneyland!

Banksy - Prisoner in DisneylandUK "guerrilla artist" Banksy surprised Disneyland California last weekend with a life-sized replica of a hooded Guantanamo Bay prisoner inside the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride. This protest installation lasted about 90 minutes before Disneyland employees removed it. Americans may not realize it, but the Guantanamo Bay prison camp gets a lot of bad publicity on UK TV. We don't use leg-irons on prisoners here; handcuffs, yes. So, to Brits, the combination of hoods and leg-irons looks more like torture than reasonable restraint.
