Wednesday's General Strike
This is from an excellent article by John Grant about threats to occupations, and especially the talk of closing the Philly action to permit the start of a long-planned construction. He also talks about what went wrong in Oakland and Atlanta. The general strike is Wednesday. Try to join.
A 99-minute general strike is planned for November 2nd in honor of Scott Olsen, the Iraq veteran wounded in the Oakland melee. In Philadelphia, it will be from noon to 1:39 pm -- 99 minutes for Americans to stop what they're doing and consider the fate of Olsen and the fate of all of us whose lives are so determined by entrenched wealth and power.
