Call for General Strike on 1/20/17 - No work, no shopping

Last edited Sat Nov 19, 2016, 01:02 PM - Edit history (1)

".... Kshama Sawant, a socialist who holds a seat on the Seattle City Council, called for a nationwide strike on Inauguration Day, Friday, January 20, 2017.

My partner and I will not work on that day, will not shop on that day. We will join the strike. General strikes scare the hell out of the oligarchy, because it is the joining together as one of the working people of this country, an act that always threatens wealth of the the wealthy, ruling class, and thus tends to get the attention of the affluent and puts in jeopardy their wealth privilege."
