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.
