National Strike for the American Worker: Oct 10th, 2011

ENOUGH! $13.2 Trillion in bank bailouts, unrelenting unemployment (you *know* it’s more than 10%), wages getting lower and lower … it’s time to shut this down!!

OCTOBER 10th… a NATIONAL STRIKE (that means *everyone*) for the AMERICAN WORKER!

We need to show them that they *cannot* run this economy without us. WE are the REAL ECONOMY, and it won’t be until we MAKE our government act on our behalf (including INDICTMENTS and STRONGER REGULATION of the so-call big ‘banks’) that we will be living in a true republic again.

– NO WORK!
– NO SPENDING! on

10/10/11 … pass it on!

    Thanks for your call for a national strike and thanks to the Mike Malloy Show where I learned about it. Count me in again. As before, I’m passing the word on to other individuals, organizations, and forums. The current well-funded and concerted attacks on the social safety net, unions, education, organic food and supplements, our planet, the economy, public services, programs that keep people alive and well, etc. have solidly shown us the crucial need for a national strike. So have court and agency decisions giving free reign to corporations that are destroying the middle class.

    I also think it’d be good to follow the Greeks’ example and get in the streets. (I stayed home last time.) A visible presence will show corporatists and their bought legislators that we OUTNUMBER them. Eh? Moreover, I think the strike should be repeated and/or extended as needed until the corporatists recognize the pain in their wallets. Forget about any appeal to empathy or ethics; they have none.

    Best wishes to all of us for success in this vital matter.

    The timing for this strike seems better now—I think fewer people still believe that if they just keep their heads down, and work overtime for free, and accept a lower wage, they’ll be OK.

    It seems more and more of our fellow citizens are realizing that something big is happening here, even if they don’t yet realize how big.

    The question is: how much are we going to take and for how long? The people of the Middle East, the people in Madison, Seattle, Ohio—and this week, Greece and London.

    I’ll do my best to publicize and stay in touch with unions and other organizations to build some momentum.

    A work/spending strike might help many who want to *do something*, but are afraid to act, or don’t know what action to take.

    This is an event that is focused and could perhaps be a first step in helping people to become active, *organized* citizens—and yes, it needs to be a day of people in the street rallying, shouting, and being heard, providing direction for the corrupt elected officials who think they can ignore us.

    They can’t.

    We need to push back in a non-violent manner. 10/10/11 is a great start. Thanks to The Mike Malloy Show for the info.

    Finallly! Imagine if 300 million Americans were on the streets 10/10/11 demanding change that
    Obama promised us. What if we decided to stop paying our mortgages? who would dare kick us
    out of our homes? Robert Berry
