Italians Stage TV Viewers’ Strike

A TV viewers’ strike was organized over the weekend in Italy. “Television is one of the principal causes of dullness and isolation, and is a drain on precious commodity of human time” say the organizers. We want to say to people that there are better ways of spending their free time than to stay home staring at television. “The strike’s organisers have arranged discounts at a range of venues for people who bring their remote controls with them. Organisers say they are expecting around 400,000 people to join the strike against what they call Trash TV.”
