Petition: SAY NO TO DISNEYFICATION OF COLONIZATION! Tell Disney Not to Make “Princess of North Sudan”!

highly problematic depiction of colonization. It all started in June 2014 when the daughter of Caucasian American farmer Jeremiah Heaton told her father she wanted to be a princess. Heaton responded by making a homemade flag, traveling to Egypt, crossing a desert, and claiming ownership of a contested area of land called Bir Tawil on the border of Egypt and Sudan. He called the land the Kingdom of Northern Sudan, and declared himself king and his daughter the princess.

Now, Disney has announced they will make an actual film based on this story — despite the fact it glorifies colonialism and is culturally insensitive.

Please sign the petition to ask Disney NOT to go through with the production of Princess of North Sudan!

Heaton says the land is unwanted, undeveloped, empty territory and disregards centuries of dispute and the wishes of the indigenous people who live there. He has no ethical, moral or legal concerns, or even just a practical doubt, that he can take this land for his own. He is even crowdfunding his colonization project and reports that his next step in this plan is to physically occupy the land.
