#BecomeUngovernable: Support the May Day General Strike!
"Reform will come, and only come, through the building of mass movements and alternative centers of power that can overthhrow -- let me repeat that word for Homeland Security -- overthrow the corporate state. If we fail to sever these chains, we will become like the many who did not rise up in time to save their civil society's human chattel. This means we too must defy the law and engage in civil disobedience." - Chris Hedges
America is in a desperate state, and it is not just because of Donald Trump. Our problems are bigger than any one man. He is merely a syptom of a corrupt, fascist system whose puppeteers believe in elite privilege, corporate rule, and dog-eat-dog competition that destroys families and communities. Unless we overthrow this corrupt system, there will be more Donald Trumps in our future. Make no mistake about it. This behavior isn't limited to the GOP. For decades we've watched the total disintegration of the Democratic Party into a corrupt, festering cesspool of unbridled power, dirty money, and even fradulent elections.
There is no real difference between the Democrats and the Republicans now. There is only the illusion of real choice. Before we can make any real substantive changes, we must face these facts and stop believing in false narratives. While we may not all agree with the specific tactics necessary to effect real transformation of our government, we recognize that we must band together in this battle for the common good.
To this end, we ask all American workers -- nurses and other health care workers, farmers, doctors, police, fire fighters, bartenders, auto workers, steel workers, dock workers, truck drivers, teachers, civil servants, coal miners, and even the retired and unemployed -- to join us in a day of General Strike solidarity on May 1, 2017. It is an opportunity to send a message to Washington that we the people are in charge, and that we can and will do this as many times as it takes to reclaim our power.
