In addition to LA and NYC, they’re seen showing their solidarity in Atlanta, Chicago, New Mexico, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Hawaii, Michigan, Nevada, New England, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco-Northern California, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Seattle, Miami, Ohio-Pittsburgh, Arizona-Utah, Nashville, Washington/Mid-Atlantic, Colorado, the Missouri Valley and Dallas-Fort Worth.

Today’s featured pickets will be held this morning at Amazon Studios in Culver City and Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank. At Amazon, SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild picketers will be joined by Producers Guild of America presidents Stephanie Allain and Donald De Line.

At Warner Bros., picketers will be joined by Duncan Crabtree-Ireland, SAG-AFTRA’s national executive director and chief negotiator, and WGA board member Marjorie David. Producers Guild members will also join in the picketing there at 10 am.

The Producers Guild, not to be confused with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, noted early on in the strike that it “stands with SAG-AFTRA as its members make the difficult decision to strike against the studios, companies, and streamers that make up the AMPTP.”
