There are plans by unions across this country and internationally to state massive protests in DC this week, in response to IMF and World Bank meetings, similar to those in Seattle. I think these folks are your allies, and it's time right now to get your message before Congress, in the form of emails, at least, or faxes. These folks need to know what's going on so they can do something about it. Also, CPB funds all those PBS shows that are sending work to other countries....and they need to hear from you, en masse, by email, or picketing.
I'm sitting here reading about plans for these massive protests in DC, and you guys are all out there. I cannot alone go and represent your interest. If anyone is going to be in the DC area next week, or if you want to be included in the planning for these protest, someone, do some research, and find out where on the web these plans are being made and get your union/unions involved.
I'm also giving away free web hosting accounts for any of you who want to spread the word about the industry problems, or perhaps share samples of your animation. Check it out at http://www.vventures.net and sign on for your free site. I LOVE giving stuff away for free. I haven't made a dime on my marketing efforts, but I've only been at it for a month.
Get involved in these protests in DC somehow.
Ciao and Good luck!
