The WGA SAG-AFTRA Strike Turns 100-Days-Old & Picketers Stay Strong

The WGA SAG-AFTRA Strike Hits 100-Days-Old & Picketers Share Some Thoughts

As the WGA strike continues past its century-day mark and the SAG-AFTRA gets closer to a whole month on strike, actors and picketers have taken to the internet to voice how they really feel about continuing to picket.

While not everyone involved with the strike is thrilled about continuing to picket, the consensus for both the WGA and the SAG-AFTRA picketers is that ‘they can continue for as long as it will take.’ Picketers have taken to social media to voice their opinions over the past 100 days, and some participants are big names.

Award-winning Actor Bryan Cranston took to the front lines and said, “I’ve been a member of SAG-AFTRA since 1979, 44 years, anyway right now right here is a seminal moment for our union, if we don’t establish a foundation of a new contract that protects us, the entire union is at risk,” he also encouraged his fellow union mates to join the picket lines.

Not all picketers have made statements without taking jabs at the industry, though. Showrunner Damon Lindelof (who was recently let go from writing a new Star Wars-related project in April) told The Hollywood Reporter, “Ninety-nine days of steps under my belt and I don’t know if there’s any end in sight, but I’m feeling good, strong, convinced and unified,” with “Justin and I wrote a Star Wars movie together and picketing Disney is a lot more fun than writing a Star Wars movie,” as he walked along with Co-Runner Justin Britt-Gibson.

Britt-Gibson chimed in with, “This will not be in vain. This will be done so we have a better future for writers, for actors, for everybody out here on the line. … Strike the Empire back!”

As the WGA SAG-AFTRA strike continues, more information is sure to follow, and fans can keep up with everything by following the official SAG-AFTRA X (formerly Twitter) account to stay posted.
