I understand where you're coming from, my anonymous friend, but I have to post some kind of disclaimer. I can't force anyone to show up if they're uneasy about it or if they feel threatened by walking out on their jobs. Those that are employed, that is.
If artists in power don't want to come out in support of their colleaugues and associates, there's nothing much that I can do. It's a choice they make. A disappointing one, but their prerogative none the less. I'm not going to pander to them or beg them to show up. Let them be sheep.
All I ask is that if they don't plan on coming, to please pass the word about the meeting. I'm promoting this entirely by word of mouth and I can use their help in informing everyone about it.
I can promise you this - that as the date of the event gets closer, I'm going to let anyone sitting on a fence about this verbally have it. And after it's over, if they fail to show up, they shouldn't plan on receiving the same respect from me or the others who attended that I'm showing now.
By the way, 101 - will you be there?
