Many writers have been wondering if we can attend the Strike a Deal! Rally and March. I reached out to the organizers through the email address on their website and got back this courteous response:
We appreciate your offer to attend and support our rally, however we must respectfully decline. Our efforts have been not to take sides, but to call for ernest and productive negotiating between both parties.Thanks for getting back to me, and for clearing the air. We hope the sun shines on you tomorrow, and the rain stays away. Please let us know if in the future we can lend our support in anyway.
Emotions grow stronger as the negotiations lag on and more below-the-line crew are out of work, and vendors watch their business decline. This is their opportunity to show their concern and frustration with the situation.
Thank you for respecting our wishes.
