GENERAL STRIKE — 9/11/08 — & extended…

We have just a little less than 3 weeks to get this out now.  That’s okay, I’m reminded of a story about a great feast gathering back in the 1800s of native folks in the northern lands now called canada, who never communicated at all about what they were going to bring as food for the celebration.  But somehow, it all ended up in a perfectly balanced array of courses and dishes!  It can happen!

Now it’s our turn.  Now it’s our chance.

Support the General Strike effort.  

From the vote strike web  

This call for a General Strike is a non-violent, peaceful, and powerful means to send a message to D.C. It is not meant to hurt the country in any way but to remove those who have.  

The ONLY way to stop those who would bleed our nation dry, dismantle our constitution, and dissolve our national sovereignty is to say

I will not work for you, buy from you, fight for you, or die for you, until the

criminals are gone from the halls of our government.

              EXIT STRATEGY:  GENERAL STRIKE

We the people…The Constitution of The United States of America spells out in the first line where the power of our great democracy lies. Unfortunately we the people have allowed the power to slip away to special interest, lobbyist, corporations and career politicians. It is time to reclaim our democracy from the people that are destroying it. Thomas Jefferson said that “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent” now is the time for all people to be heard.

…SNIP…

Career politicians will do and say anything to keep their power. Power corrupts even those with the best intentions.

…SNIP…

The General Strike is a national call to action, from citizens to other citizens.

It is not about a single issue. It is not an anti-war protest, a gas price protest, a civil rights protest, an election fraud protest. It is not about torture, surveillance, corporate media, or the environment. This strike is about all these issues and more

The strike targets key issues facing the American public, issues that have not been addressed in any meaningful way by any branch of government.

You can order free flyers here.

A little more below the fold…  

So please go to the Vote Strike web site and find out more that you can do to get the word out and make a successful GENERAL STIKE on 9/11/08

This government continues because of our acquiescence, because of our compliance, because we go along with it.  The way to stop what we don’t like, after they have so egregiously refused to hear us, is for us to refuse to go along, is for us to shut it down!!!!!

  1. …Strike for Peace   … &

         Much Much More!

  2. And IMO any hope for the strike getting major traction is from those truckers. We are all aware that our opinions and actions are worth way less on the national level than we would like, (make that way, way, WAY less). However the truckers are an integral part of our society, a very visible and necessary part. The LSM reported months ago about the possibility of the truckers striking because of high fuel prices, and from my limited POV that was the start of what has morphed into the 9-11 general strike.

    Now, with the elections a little over 2 months away, gas and fuel prices are falling (anyone really surprised?), and there is less impetus for the truckers to strike. I feel that keeping the truckers interested in striking is going to be vital for any thought of success.

    With that in mind, 1/4 sheet copies of a message to strike on 9-11 over high fuel prices, posted on the bottom edge of bulletin boards at truck stops all over the country might be a very effective organizing tactic. Truckers read those boards.

  3. for this reminder and all the info.

    I hope it can be pulled off — awareness is the biggest issue, IMO!

    On 9/11, I’ll only eat, drink, and exercise necessary bodily functions.
