ENG: A general strike is a strike action by a critical mass of the labour force in a city, region, or country. While a general strike can be for political goals, economic goals, or both, it tends to gain its momentum from the ideological or class sympathies of the participants. It is also characterized by participation of workers in a multitude of workplaces, and tends to involve entire communities. The general strike has waxed and waned in popularity since the mid-19th century, and has characterized many historically important strikes. North America North American general strikes include the 1877 Saint Louis general strike, which grew out of the events of the Great Railroad Strike of 1877 across the United States, the 1892 New Orleans general strike, and the Winnipeg General Strike of ...

Occupy Wall Street Plans “General Strike” — But Labor ...


... Isn't Coming Along Occupy Wall Street, largely forgotten over the last few months, aims to make a comeback from this winter’s hibernation with an ambitious plan: a crippling May Day “general strike” in the tradition of 1930s radicalism. The grand promise is what one occupier, Brendan Burke, described to BuzzFeed as “a day without the 99%.” But in the city where the movement was born, it's already suffering from what has emerged as one of Occupy's signal weaknesses, the lack of ability or interest to make alliances with liberal institutions. Despite ...


Extreme Civil Disobedience 2012


Politicians are raising tuition fees on students and want to raise taxes on everyone. California is facing a projected budget shortfall of over 2 billion dollars. Governor Jerry Brown has proposed raising sales tax due t prison overcrowding. Raising your taxes will NOT solve this problem. In 2010, corporate giant GE made hundreds of millions of dollars but paid almost NO taxes. If GE, B of A, Wells Fargo and other corporations and banks paid their FAIR SHARE, there would be no federal, state or county deficits/shortfalls. Instead, the government would have a surplus like they used ...


‘General strike’ to hit the US on May First


In more than 100 cities from Washington State to the District of Columbia, protesters are orchestrating a massive country-wide demonstration on Tuesday, May 1, and their plans call for what could be the biggest event of its like in recent memory. In locales like New York City, San Francisco, California and at least 100 cities in between, thousands of demonstrators are expected to take to the streets on Tuesday for a national day of protest. Originating out of the Occupy Wall Street movement, what began as just a gathering of a few like-minded individuals in Lower Manhattan last year has ...

#TheoryThursday: "Do not become enamored of power." - Michel Foucault
“Preface” to Anti-Oedipus by Michel Foucault During the years 1945-1965 (I am referring to Europe), there was a certain way of thinking correctly, a certain style of political discourse, a certain ethics of the intellectual. One had to be on familiar terms with Marx, not let one’s dreams stray too far from Freud. And one had to treat sign-systems — the signifier — with the greatest respect. These were the three requirements that made the strange occupation of writing and speaking a measure of truth about oneself and one’s time acceptable. Then came the five brief, impassioned, jubilant, enigmatic years. At the gates of our world, there was Vietnam, of course, and the first major blow to the powers that be. But here, inside our walls, what exactly was taking place? An amalgam of revolutionary and antirepressive politics? A war fought on two fronts: against social exploitation and psychic repression? A surge of libido modulated by the class struggle? Perhaps. At any rate, it
