Today, a number of TV blogs are shutting down in solidarity with the writers on strike.
We’re a blog with many writers who support our work and write for us. We’ve enjoyed the promise of new media as an open source venue for our voices.
Now, we’re shutting down our site in solidarity with writers demanding fair and equitable pay for their work, calling on corporations to take into account how new media has vastly changed what royalties should look like. So JVoices is shutting down in solidarity with the Writers Guild of America strike. Not for just one day though. We’re shutting down until victory is won for WGA workers!
You can keep up with the strike on United Hollywood, sign a petition in support of the writers and call the studios listed below voicing your support for the writers and a return to the negotiating table.
