A note and banners from Steven Sears: "SO WHAT ABOUT RAIN? At the moment, the weather report says that we might have rain on Thursday. What do we do about that? Well, we dress for it and hope for the best. That's about all we can do. The weather report here changes from day to day and, for all I know, it will be sunny and 80 degrees (not likely!). But dress warmly for wet weather. Hopefully it won't be too bad. We can still have fun. Keep dry…"

The following banners will be on display at the Xena March. have been created by Wendy Gamble and Caprice Nuss.

WGA Strike Update

Many many thanks to those who have contributed to the Xenaverse Refreshes Campaign for the WGA strikers. The writers greatly appeciat the support from the Xena fans, even writers not at the gates we are delivering goodies to, know about the effort being made.

The Xenaverse Drop-Off Elf delivered another batch of goodies today to the writers. This will be the last drop-off for a bit because of the break during the holidays - the WGA won't be picketting for a bit (from 19 December until 8 January 08). They have enough goodies until the 14th - We will deliver on the 14th again and continue supporting them until the strike is over.

The Xenaverse ROCS!

WGA Strike Update

The following is from Katherine (and posted on Talking Xena)

hey all and sundry --

yet ANOTHER generous drop came to the disney gate today from the xenaverse. have tell you - it's so humbling and inspiring. the mostly male WGA writers always walk up to me with shock on their faces when i arrive, saying, "they did it AGAIN!" and i smile, realizing, then say, "you don't know the power of the xenaverse."

your gift was especially appreciated today as i'm sure many of you have read, the AMPTP's "groundbreaking" deal was anything but. the lowball offer -($250 flat fee residual after 6 weeks FREE downloading for an 1 hour show and ZERO for feature films) has only served to unite us even more in our fight to receive a fair deal from the major corporations.

if you have any questions about the strike - please visit my website or

and thank you again for understanding and supporting writers! (and also actors, because SAG will be next and we're hoping that with union solidarity and by bargaining first, we can assure them a fair deal equal to ours.)
