Will try to get some video up later.
Press coverage with some comments:
UPDATE FROM SHARON HIGGINS:
Leonie and the other protesters were featured on E!News last night, along with some nervous looking Hollywood types!
The actors clearly don't know this "debate" is being blocked and one sided, and that those who were there have been "there" for a decade and more!
love the second one: UNION PROTEST??? hahahahaha---even Fox was more accurate!

The producers probably love the protest(s). Gets them free publicity. So ignoring it might be the best policy, but think how much fun we would all be missing. In fact, holding these events -- and a bunch of us were at the screening last week with Leonie on the panel -- bring people together who might not ordinarily get together and that is the essence of building a movement. People begin to work together and support each other and things begin to click. I can't tell you how many people I keep meeting who quickly become political pals. People I barely knew. I try to have my pinky into as many activities going on as possible so I have a handle on what is happening. And then when people ask I can help them make connections.
