Mutant Enemy Strike Day

We thank the forum of for posting a list of cast members and writers who took part:

Joss Whedon, Amy Acker, Morena Baccarin, Jeffrey Bell, Nicholas Brendon, Felicia Day, Steve DeKnight, Eliza Dushku,
Ben Edlund, Jane Espenson, Sarah Fain, Michael Fairman, Raphael Feldman, Yan Feldman, Nathan Fillion, David Fury,

Fans4Writers now have a cafepress shop selling mugs, badges, tees and other items for you to show your support for the writers. Visit their main site:

Marti Noxon is on the organising committee for "Write Aid", a fundraising benefit for employees affected by the WGA action. It's taking place in Los Angeles on 14 December, tickets are $75 and performers include Eddie Izzard and Tenacious D - go to for full details.

Writers are arguably the most important people in entertainment; this strike is about writers obtaining a share of profits from the new media - and without them, the people we all like to see in films and TV can't work. Support the WGA strike.

Cool news. There are a LOAD of pics from this amazing show of support here:

Tabz managed to get there and hand early version copies of the BBtL Christmas episode (starring my Elanor!) to Joss, Nick Brendon, Jane Espenson and Amy Acker (who also met Liane who plays our Fred on BBtL :-), being Tabz that wasn't all she managed to do in addition to marching with everyone else, but that would be telling :-)
Looked like a great turnout.
