MICHIGAN: Unions, Police Prepare For Tuesday's Right To Work Protest

The state House is expected to pass the final Right to Work bill when it's back in session Tuesday.

Unions are planning an even bigger protest for their last chance to keep it from going to the Governor's desk, but for now, there's a brief calm before the next storm at the Capitol.

"Did it go the way we wanted? No. But if they told us no, am I supposed to say, 'Let me gather my stuff up and get out of your way,'? We're not going away," Local UAW 652 President Mike Green said.

Thousands of protestors are expected at the Capitol for what will probably be the biggest protest yet.

"It's going to look like wall to wall people," Green said. "We're calling everybody we can call and telling them, 'Bring a friend.' If you're concerned, it's time to show up and let them know."

4. They should not let them leave the Capitol building; hold them hostage in the building.

Surround them and say we aren't letting you leave until,you strike down this law. Or go to Synders home and kept him from leaving until he promises to veto the law. Use a common day pitch fork brigade. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

6. Solidarity! Although.......

I doubt a demonstration, even a huge one, will be enough. This law WILL be passed and signed into law just like in Wisconsin. However, we can change our response and, unlike Wisconsin, become more militant. This needs to be a continuing demonstration leading to a general strike in Michigan. And we don't yield until the law is rescinded. We also need solidarity actions in other states.

9. They need to go and picket the author of their woes: The Koch brothers and ALEC legislators in MI.

The Koches opened up an office near the Capitol in Wisconsin, doing their theft of the commons openly, as they owned the Governor. This is another state they will no doubt do the same.

Every lawmaker in MI who convenes with ALEC should be outted and hounded out of office. We have threads on DU with the links to these Koch Kriminals.

The Unions have the knowledge base to do this. They cannot just wait until these actions are taken. There is no surprise here, these groups have been working on this every day of the year.

Stand up every day. Our oppressors are busy.
