Australian Writers’ Guild joins solidarity strike for WGA

Members of the Australian Writers’ Guild today joined Sydney-based TV and film writers in a show of solidarity for striking US screenwriters.

Today the Australian Writers’ Guild (AWG) joined television writers, film writers and other screen workers around the world for the Screenwriters Everywhere International Day of Solidarity, a gesture of support for the Writers Guild of America (WGA).

A group of striking Australian writers, US writers living in Australia and AWG members stood outside NBCUniversal in Sydney this afternoon, holding placards with messages of support for their US counterparts, while writers in other countries followed suit in person and online under the #ScreenwritersEverywhere hashtag.
