Fan/Writer Rally In Boston with Joss Whedon and More

The following was lifted directly from Ducky Does TV. I’m talking word for word plagiarism…but he loves me so I hope he doesn’t mind.

BOSTON TV FANS AND WGA WRITERS dust off your picket signs, your sandwich boards, your megaphones, and walking sneaks because it’s time for us to throw down Boston style! The Browncoats, the Sci-Fi geeks and the intellectual humorists will descend upon Cambridge to support the striking writers.

From Jamie Paglia (Sci-Fi’s Eureka):

We are planning the event for Friday, December 14th from 12 noon – 3 pm. There will be an assembly of writers, fans (and potentially celebrity guests!) at the distinguished public affairs program Cambridge Forum in the Meeting House of the historic First Parish (Unitarian Universalist) Church, 3 Church St., Cambridge, MA 02138. There, guest speakers (which so far include Joss Whedon, Rob Kutner with a few of his Daily Show crew, and myself) will say a few words of thanks to our fans and talk about the cause they’re supporting. Once we are sufficiently pumped up, everyone will march with picket signs and pamphlets through Harvard Square to a rally outside of the famed Harvard Lampoon building, where so many great television comedy writers cut their teeth. It will offer a chance for Boston fans and writers to walk side by side, show the media and AMPTP that we’re galvanized in our cause, and we’re growing. We know our position is just, and we’ll keep adding similar demonstrations in cities across the country until we get a fair deal. (In the event that an agreement between the Guild and the AMPTP is reached prior to the rally, we’ll simply change the focus to a celebration of the resolution.)

Your job is to show up and bring your friends! We want fans of all shows and films in attendance. We wouldn’t be here without you and we want to show the studios and networks that our fans are a force to be reckoned with. So get on the fan boards and spread the word.

Dan for and I will be out there with our picket signs. If you’re in the Boston area and want to join us, please let me know so we can coordinate!!
