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 ...

First hand account: TORTURED at Abu Ghraib by American military
There is the mangled hand, an old injury that became infected by the shackles chafing his skin. There is the slight limp, made worse by days tied in uncomfortable positions. And most of all, there are the nightmares of his nearly six-month ordeal at Abu Ghraib prison in 2003 and 2004. Mr. Qaissi, 43, was […]
The Black Bloc And Wildcat Rally: One Perspective
An occupier joins the unpermitted wildcat march: Uniformed police chase the black bloc through the streets and this writer narrowly avoids being picked off by undercover police.
Neither Imitate Nor Hate
As righteous people, how can we live in a world that is poisonous to our souls, harmful to our minds and at odds with our ideals? Common sense counsels us that we have only two options: either imitate or hate the world. But if we remain stuck within this binary opposition, we will lose ourselves: if we imitate the world we sacrifice our spirit; if we hate the world we succumb to being reactionary and lose the positive passion that grounds our affirmation. What then can we do? This is the question that Seneca, the great Stoic sage, posed nearly two millennia ago. And his answer speaks to today’s struggle of being true to oneself in a corporatist society. Roman imperial culture was as ruinous to Seneca’s ideals as endgame corporatism is to ours. In a well-known letter to his friend Lucilius, Seneca writes that exposure to crowds and the entertainment they consume ought to be avoided because within the crowd we lose our inner resolve for living a good life. “To consort with the crow
