Supporting US Film and Television Writers Strike

The International Federation of Journalists (of which I am a member through the Estonian Journalist Union) has expressed their support to the strike of US Film and Television Writers:

“Our self-employed journalists are wrestling with very similar problems in terms of giant corporations, where sometimes divisions of the same company are trying to re-use their work on new digital platforms without additional payments,” said IFJ General Secretary Aidan White.

“Your struggle is one we share and in which all creators have a stake. We have to win these fights to preserve the rights and the voices of individual creators and/or reporters in the face of globalisation of the entertainment and communications industries,” he said.

Hang in their guys! The World is smaller than it used to be so your action is helping all of us.
