This afternoon, as we end week three of our ongoing strike against the AMPTP, the WGA is staging a gigantic Solidarity With Writers march and rally in the heart of downtown Hollywood.
We expect upwards of 10,000 people from every union in town (including nurses, teamsters, musicians, actors, you name it) to join us in marching down Hollywood Blvd. in an historic show of union solidarity.
It should be really cool and anyone who is interested in attending should totally swing by. Members of the Los Angeles City Council, SAG, the Teamsters, and the WGA negotiating committee will be joined by Golden Globe award-winning actress Sandra Oh (“Grey’s Anatomy”) during the march.
But most exciting of all is the prospect of a possible mini-concert by Grammy-winning singer, the freakishly beautiful Alicia Keys, who is tentatively scheduled to appear at 1:15pm. Yeah! I can finally see for myself if she’s an alien or not! I’m betting she’s human, but you never know…
Either way, it should be a memorable day, so if you’re around, grab a red shirt and join us! For further details, check out: www.wga.org

If I didn’t have to be at work I’d be joining my wife there today.
Sounds cool. If I didn’t have to work, I would have joined you. Can’t wait to read about it on make. see. eat. do.
Sorry you guys couldn’t make it, you were missed! Even more than the march and rally (which was awesome!) I think you both would have enjoyed our post-strike stop for hot wings at the newish Hooters on Hollywood Blvd.
Ah, yes…nothing quenches your thirst after a long day on the picket lines like some skimpy orange shorts, spicy breaded chicken, and ranch dressing! Awesome!
Ummm…yeah…I would have been more than happy to join you for the march had I been down in SoCal, but would probably have had to make my “post-strike stop” at one of the newish pinkberry locations instead. 🙂
Did you know they’re opening a Pinkberry in Irvine just across the street from Smarthome? It’s only the second one in the OC.
