Jerry Springer, boycotts and pressure

More on the Jerry Springer thing, Zefrog (found from the technorati tags I've started using, very useful) first tells us Equity is onboard and encouraging members to get in contact:
"Equity is opposed to the action which Woolworths and Sainsbury's have taken on two grounds. Firstly, Equity strongly supports artistic freedom and equally strong opposes censorship in all its forms, however offended any individual may feel themselves to be by a particular piece of dramatic art.

“Secondly, Equity members derive income from the sales of recorded material, including DVDs, and so stand to lose income from actions such as these.

"Equity is inviting all of its members to make their views known to Sainsbury’s and Woolworths about these acts of censorship."
But he also gives us a list of senior Sainsbury management contact email addresses. I'm sure us repectable bloggers will make sure to keep our email polite and pointed, right? It's Christian Voice who rant and shout at people.

There's lots of others things going on in the world, but this is something I think we can actually make a difference on; what's the betting that if we do, MSM will credit MPs and Equity and not bloggers?
