Mickey Go Home

Mickey Go Home

My friend Karl Cohen (president of Asifa-San Francisco) forwarded me this curious photo, snapped in Italy by his cousin
Michael who was there on vacation. It’s a
strange poster, found on an alley wall in Italy. It reads “No MUOS – Yankee Go Home!”

It’s a poster by an anti-American group, Movimento Sociale Europeo, protesting against the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, who are working to bring American tourists and American dollars to their country. 

Although its rather harsh – I kinda like the idea that Mickey Mouse still represents America in the eyes of the world.
