The General Strike is a national call to action, from citizens to other citizens. It is not about a single issue. It is not an anti-war protest, a civil rights protest, an election fraud protest. It is not about torture, surveillance, corporate media, the 9/11 coverup, or the environment. This strike is about all these issues and more.

    General strikes are different to regular strikes, at least the ones I’ve participated in are not indefinite, just a way of saying: “we are not happy with the way you are running my country” in a vocal way. In opposition to elections, in a protest you actually get to say exactly what you disagree with. In opposition to elections, you are clearly showing your disapproval.

    Of course, one day won’t change anything. But it can be a step in the good direction, if it helps us organize and discuss, and maybe we can move forward from there on. Those guys, for example http://www.generalstrikeforpeace.com/ are planning repeated general strikes. Did you read about them before? I only did recently, and it was precisely because of the 911 general strike.
