supporting oaklands call to have a general strike in oakland doesn't necessarily mean we have to call for one in ny.

But did not New York GA call for support of this? Vlad's email said it
did, I am currently unable to find minutes from last night's GA, was
this passed at GA?

At the moment I will just use site to echo and report information from
other locations. I do not see the harm in having a website to support
what has already been consensed by one GA.

we should certainly support.

but we should be careful about calling on things we can't deliver on.
regardless of what whoever says. a general strike is a hugely complicated
idea.  let's focus on what we're good at OCCUPYING.  take some more space
and build to a MASS movement where we can organize and call for a mass
movement.  also nov 17 will be a day to make a dent in the economy that
could sow some seeds for people understanding the implications of a
"general" strike.

if you're interested in a general strike and want to organize at your work
place or among your friends to make that happen, help in building worker
councils.  hit me off list for details.

my two cents.

I just had a 2-hour conversation with the director of moveon here in
Oakland. The so-called "organizer" of the strike is a hugely disgruntled
former-employee who managed to get many people fired because of his
belligerent actions.

Strikes are 1940's. These days, we need to have non-violent training and
Restorative Justice sessions. Stop knee-jerk reacting, start thinking, and
focus on the 1% (not the 99%, who you are "striking against").
