Erase the Strike!

Publish date:

Okay, forgive the corny headline, but you can help erase the strike, or at least show your support of the writers, by sending boxes of pencils to the heads of the six media conglomerates refusing to pay the writers (CBS, NBC/GE, ABC/Disney, FOX/NewsCorp., Warner Brothers, Viacom). Just like sending peanuts to Jericho and Tabasco Sauce to Roswell, fans and writers are bombarding top execs at these companies with pencils... a symbol of the fact that writers are literally "putting down their pencils" until they're paid their rightful money. (And if you wanna stay green, don't worry-- the pencils are environmentally friendly, made by California Cedar Products, which uses sustainably harvested wood instead of deforesting.

You can buy your pencils at, or simply buy your own and send them to any of the following addresses:
