Washington Square Park
12:00 - 1:30 p.m.
Join your fellow members of the Writers Guild of America, the labor community, and supporters and fans, as the WGA begins week four of its strike against the media conglomerates of the AMPTP.
Meet us at Washington Square Park for a Solidarity Rally. We’re expecting a large attendance from the union community -- including SEIU, SAG, UNITE-HERE, AFT, NYS AFL-CIO, national AFL-CIO, and the New York City Central Labor Council among others -- as well as some exciting speakers, music and entertainment.
Check the WGAw site
for where to picket on the (warmer) West Coast.
And don't forget, Wednesday is International Solidarity Day. Canadians will be demonstrating (not picketing) in Montreal and Toronto (anywhere else?), Brits will be demonstrating in London, etc.
Just because the AMPTP is coming back to the table doesn't mean they won't pull another fast one. Please come out and support the strikers. If you're an emerging or aspiring writer, now would be a great time to show what you're made of to the Guild writers walking the picket line in this deteriorating weather. When you need them, they'll remember that you were there when they needed you.
Meanwhile, enjoy the "speechless campaign" on Deadline Hollywood. Here's Holly Hunter trying to get rewrite ... which has been outsourced to Bangalore.
See? This is what happens when you leave writers with time on their hands.

Been trying to find out if anything's happening here in Ottawa. There's a thread on wga_supporters over at Livejournal where the question's been asked, as well as my queries on Denis' blog.
What do you think about David S. Freeman's Emotioneering techniques (You can find most of them in his book "Creating Emotion in Games")
