: : PBS is funded by our tax dollars. They have sent almost all of their animation work to Canada. Therefore, we are protesting by picketing KCET on Thursday April 13th, 11:30am to 1:30pm, 4401 W. Sunset Blvd. (at Fountain). This is organized by the union but is not a union issue: they are using everyone's tax money to pay out-of-country animators while we have so many out of work here. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.

: and from there it goes to China...so who is benefiting from this?...surely not all the animators in Toronto who lost their jobs when management decided to send layout and posing to China as well, leaving only storyboard and design remaining and a ton of people out of work.

: yes PBS is our saviour?

PBS is contracting to Canadian studios, not overseas studios. That's why we protest to PBS. Duh!
