If not now, when?
General Strike on 9/11/2007
We’ve endured seven years of cascading failures from 911 to Iraq enabled by rigged elections and supported by a decadent set of politicians who lack the will to even fight for themselves.
But let’s not lose hope. We’ll get a Democratic majority in Congress. They’ll do something! We’ll be out of trouble in no time. Plus, we’ll have the type of investigations we need to get the real solution in place – impeachment. It will be like a Roman triumph – the Truth enters the Capitol to the cheers of the people all across America.
dWe tried that. It failed.
Now it’s up to us, the people, who are ever so inconvenient to the rulers of this country. We, the citizens, are the last line of defense against the complete removal of any form of freedom and security that we now retain.
We’re the last line in a defense that to date has never truly formed. How can you have a strong defense if there’s no communication? The corporate media has done a sterling job of masking the very information that would have made the current insanity impossible.
Any hope of a rescue by those in power is gone. We must accept that.
Our leaders are simply placeholders for those whose madness drives events.
For example, the Senate passed an amendment in April which practically endorses an invasion of Iran. Did you hear about it? Was it discussed? Of course not!
We don’t matter in these decisions. Our questions and objections are a nuisance to the well-coiffed servants of power gone mad.
Citizens across the country have a chance to make a strong statement on 9/11/2007 - no work, no school, no buying (anything). Hit the streets. We’ve had enough! This is a general strike formed from the people, spread through word of mouth and the Internet. It has no heroic leaders. The only heroes will be the everyday people who choose to join in some way by showing support for peace and decency.
Do what you can on 9/11 and every day after that to take your freedoms and country back for your own sake, that of your family, friends, and all of your fellow citizens.
