Help save the industry

Dear Colleagues, Comrades, Friends,

I have been dismayed at the very muted response from the industry to
potentially the greatest crisis we ever faced. The SABC will spend R500
million less on independent production this year and next, effectively
bringing our industry to a standstill for this period and beyond, most of us
won't survive.

We have one shot at reversing this we have to lobby, protest, shout, scream
and demand that government intervene and insure the survival of our
industry. We don't have much time and we need every single one of you to
participate, we need your energy, ideas and support. If this happens I'm
confident we can get government to listen to us.
