A group of protesters occupied the Guggenheim Museum in New York City on Friday, causing the institution to shut down as they spread their message through flyers, a parachute and demands for talks with a board member.
Some of the activists were from Gulf Ultra Luxury Faction (known as G.U.L.F.) which has staged activities at the museum since February 2014 to bring awareness to labor issues at the Guggenheim's satellite being built in Abu Dhabi.
The group is calling for workers rights at the site in Abu Dhabi, including a living wage, the right to organize and the settlement of recruitment debts. “Meet Workers Demands Now” was the message on a parachute.
