Support striking newsroom workers

Please take a moment to educate yourself about the one-day strike scheduled for today by newsroom workers at the Jacksonville Times Union. Gannett owns it, as well as the Gainesville Sun and Ocala Star Banner. Hedge fund owners have been buying out local newspapers across the country, cutting staff and therefore decimating our source of knowing what's going on with local government and neighborhoods. No wonder there's so much corruption in Florida. Let's support the striking workers and keep an eye on what happens. Also attached is a 'circle' to put on your Facebook page or wherever to show support. Our democracy is indeed in danger if we lose local news outlets and those who know how to research and write the news.

Thanks for all you do.
