A coming together of all people from all parts of the world, saying… ENOUGH!
We can transform this world from the paradigm of scarcity and lack, to one of Abundance, Upliftment, Love and Joy. There IS plenty for everyone!
Let us work together in Peace and Harmony, Compassion and Unconditional Love, to transform Mother Earth into the Pearl that she Truly is!
Tea Parties shut the country down and force the government to remember who they serve. People need to let those in power know that it won’t be tolerated anymore.
SHUT ‘EM DOWN! GENERAL STRIKE!
MARCH 13 thru 19, 2009 and March on the Pentagon March 21st

Global General Strike
NO WORK! NO SCHOOL! NO SHOPPING!
No ‘life as usual’ … Not for today. Not for this week. Not until we’ve won!
We all have different concerns, but we all have the same concern: we are being lied to and this government does not represent us. Join millions of Americans in demanding truth, justice, and accountability.
* No More Bail-Outs
* EXIT STRATEGY
* General Strike USA
A General Strike is called for the United States of America.
General Strikes shut down the normal operations of a city, state, or nation for a period of time. These strikes aim to force action on a single issue or broader set of concerns. The General Strike has a central location - http://www.votestrike.org - on the Internet, which is linked to and reproduced on a variety of other internet sites. The site states the rationale for the effort:
The General Strike is a national call to action, from citizens to other citizens.
We all have different concerns, but we all have the same concern: we are being lied to and this government does not represent us. Join other Americans in demanding truth, justice, and accountability.
This is our country. And our world.
A National Call to Action:
No WORK. No SCHOOL. BUY NOTHING. Demonstrate Non-violent Non-Compliance!
LOCK DOWN USA
The General Strike is a necessary reaction to key issues facing the American public, issues that have not been addressed in any meaningful way by any branch of government. Unions, mega-corporations, and the ruling major parties have banded together in all out corruption. We’re left with the facts of our disintegrated Republic: an overblown and still growing government that’s failed to deal with the unconscionable wars, lost industries, voter fraud, steadily increasing unemployment, income inequality, crimes of high government officials, and the meaning of citizenship itself.
These are only a few of the many reasons it’s time for a massive citizens revolve.
We The People MUST take back what has been stolen from us: a government of The People, by The People, and for The People. It’s time to make our voices as ONE.
The General Strike campaign argues that under our system of checks and balances, when The Judiciary, The House, AND The Executive branches all fail in their sworn duties to uphold and defend The Constitution, it is our Constitutional right to implement the necessary changes to restore The Constitution, along with the almost dead Bill of Rights. Our very lives depend upon our success.
Call to action - Enough is Enough!
NO WORK: If you believe your job is in jeopardy by participating in a week-long General Strike, use your own judgement. If you are one of the millions who have already lost their job, then please, STAND UP AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
NO SCHOOL: Student strikes ARE noticed, even by the controlled main-stream media.
NO SHOPPING: A suspension of all purchasing during the strike will make the mega-corporations notice, and let’s face it: they control (most of) the politicians.
75% of our economy is consumer spending. That means WE have the power to Shut ‘em Down!
The General Strike calls for participants to “Hit the Streets.” Many will be able to demonstrate in DC. But for the rest, local city and state Capital Buildings, City Halls, Major Media outlet hubs, all qualify as demonstration landing sites.
Strikes, Protests, and Demonstrations have brought about the 8 hour work day, womens rights, child labor laws, and civil rights in the U.S. and around the world. Help make our voices louder than the mainstream media and corporate dollars.
“Sooner or later all freedom loving Americans will realize that the only way to stop those who would bleed our nation dry, dismantle our constitution, and dissolve our national sovereignty is to say I will not work for you, buy from you, fight for you, or die for you, until the criminals are gone from the halls of our government.”
“It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error”.- U.S. Supreme Court, in American Communication Association v. Douds, 339 U.S. 382, 442
