10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Event Type:
Protest
Organizer/Author:
Location Details:
Disney Store, Post and Powell Streets, San Francisco (across from Union Square)

The picketline is at the Disney Store, Post and Powell Streets, San Francisco, Saturday and Sunday, 12/15 and 12/16/07 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or longer if there are more people. This is the Union Square area and the sidewalks are packed with people shopping at all the stores, so this is a great opportunity to reach thousands of people with labor solidarity messages and build support for the Writers Guild. In fact, the sidewalks are packed from now through December 26 in the Union Square area from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. so the more people who can spend an hour or so at the picketline, the better, and the hours could be lengthened.

From the leaflet:
TV and film writers want 2.5% of whatever money the studios make from their work on the Internet or digitally, the delivery systems of the future. But the studios are refusing to discuss a fair deal. Disney's revenue from digital is $1.5 billion; the writer's share is ZERO.
