I agree with what's been said here. We should put a lot more time and
planning into a global gen strike. We should do it but it should be
the REAAALL deal.
We should also stand with oakland (of course). But that strike will be
largely symbolic. And we can probably learn a lot from it.
Is my understanding correct from this that there's now a dedicated
genstrike working group for planning this? Are meeting times posted on
nycga? I want to be a part of it.
PS. has anyone been tuning in to the BAI show?
in case you don't know, it's 6:30 to 7 pm. Mon-Fri. 99.5fm

I can go to Oakland on Wednesday (grew up in Queens, lived here for 20+
years, and was at the march on Tues). Would you like me to make an
announcement? How does this sound?
"The NYC GA stands with Oakland during today's strike and day of
remembrance of the police brutality of Tuesday October 25. We will never
forget that day, and wish those harmed a strong recovery. We understand the
frustration of Oakland citizens, with its history of police repression, and
hope that this incident serves to awaken the police, powers in charge, and
the 1% that pulls the strings that bring harm and injury to all of us, so
that this kind of confrontation will never happen again. We know that with
our combined efforts, our communities can be restored to places of peace,
prosperity, and hope.
The goals of OWS are to restore and spread true participatory democracy
throughout our nation and to be a model to the rest of the world. We are
just starting, and have a great challenge ahead, the least of which is
surviving this winter.
We honor and thank Oakland for promoting the vision and hope of OWS and we
want you to know that NYC stands in solidarity with you. And, we appreciate
your standing with us."
