Amid the ferocious PR battle between the WGA and the AMPTP as to which side is to blame for the lack of progress at the bargaining table, an organization of interested observers calling itself Strike A Deal is planning a rally and march in Hollywood at 9 a.m. Sunday.
“We’re Walking so They’ll Keep Talkin’!” is the theme; location is Hollywood and Highland.
Org describes itself thusly: “We are not organized or sponsored by any union, guild or association. We are a spontaneous grassroots outgrowth of the concern and desire of below-the-line industry professionals and vendors whose jobs, livelihoods and futures hang in the balance. We urge the WGA and the AMPTP to come to terms NOW to avoid lengthy and devastating damage to our industry, our city and our lives. LET’S GET BACK TO WORK!”
