sorry for reposting, but this got sucked into the wrong thread

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

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 something like this and get some results.  nov 17 will be a day to make a dent 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.

Two threads operating about this, as per some discussion in the other

temporary or can be changed, doesn't matter to me.
