Just issued from the Writers Guild at 8:02 tonight...
Writers Rally and Picket for Justice
This week, the WGAW rocked the entertainment industry. Our strike has demonstrated our unity and our resolve to get a fair deal from the media conglomerates.
Tomorrow, join thousands of your fellow writers at Fox Plaza in a major show of solidarity. Do not go to any other picket location. This will be the only picketing to be held on Friday.
Speakers will include WGAW President Patric M. Verrone and Screen Actors Guild President Alan Rosenberg. Singer-activist Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, AudioSlave, the Nightwatchman) will open the rally with an exclusive acoustic mini-set.
Parking in Century City is extremely limited. Carpool if you can. You can also park for three hours in the Westfield shopping center at no charge with a purchase.
Be on time! The police are blocking Avenue of the Stars for this rally, which will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 11 a.m., to be followed by picketing on Avenue of the Stars and at the main Pico Gate.
10 a.m. to 12 Noon – Friday, Nov. 9, 2007
2121 Avenue of the Stars, Century City
(between Olympic and Pico boulevards)
