I’ve been meaning to post with news and reports from the WGAE picket lines here in New York. Tomorrow, we’re down in front of the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle. God, I hate that monstrosity… I almost want to picket the desecration of the grave of the old New York Coliseum that used to stand on that spot.
It’s a very daunting thing, looking up at a massive edifice of corporate permanence and realizing you’re striking for what you believe is a fairer share of a tyrannosaurus rex’s dinner.
We have to hit these soulless borg in the only place they could ever admit to feeling it… the pocketbook.
Everyone’s reposting this excellent, member-made video on just why the WGA is on strike and what’s at stake. We’re not being the least bit unreasonable. The concept of fairness and sharing simply isn’t encoded into the t-rex’s makeup.
