Subject:   [september17discuss] For Jackie and the Labor committee, a proposal we're slowly working on, with a note on the risks involved

So, we're trying to do labor actions, and strike actions.


The ultimate strike action is the general strike, esp. unlimited. It's

where everything breaks, millions are in the streets.


Some people in various places are thinking of pushing for it in their

own unions, in unions they have contacts with, and even outside of



Now I won't sugar coat. US law considers a general strike to be

rebellion according to one of our organizers. He's in, but wants the

risks to be known by everyone. At the same time this is a revolution,

rebellion is inevitable, or we'll have failed and been bought out -

and I refuse to see the democratic vote machine use this like it tried

in WI. It's not a request for immediate support or a demand for

permissions, just a point of information. It will be easier to talk

about it face to face when I'm down in NYC.


So yeah. We're thinking of bringing up general strike.
