  • 1.  Resolution on HK?

    Posted Oct 21, 2019 05:46 PM
    Specifically calling members of SRRT! (Tara Brady?)

    GameRT had a board meeting today and we discussed the recent news of Blizzard Entertainment (they make World of Warcraft, Overwatch, and Hearthstone) banning a player over their support of the Hong Kong protests. The board wants me to craft a resolution condemning the action as infringement on free speech (or something like that). Would those folks from SRRT, specifically Tara, like to collaborate on this?

    Wow, this is a great idea.  The pressure China is able to exert on foreign companies to infringe on the speech of people outside its borders is very troubling to me personally.  From what I saw Blizz did back down somewhat, this time at least (though i'm not sure if the streamers were reinstated?) but the same thing is happening in the NBA right now, and I'm sure it won't stop there.  I'll touch base with the SRRT action council and see what they have to say.
