Episode Notes

Workers Strike Across The Nation! Info, resources and more on getting involved!

Short podcast here, tons of other talk and resources at the other podcasts here on TheresThisPodcast.com but the companion site TheresThis.com will probably be kept more up to date on additions, so feel free to also check them out there, and I'm not mentioning all the links that will be below but as for right now I'm listing a few things you need to be aware of.

I'll start with a website that tracks and reports on the massive amount of strikes 1. https://paydayreport.com/

Also, at Popular Resistance, which is a great site run by people that truly care about life and rights, if you do a site search of the tag ``general strike'' 2. https://popularresistance.org/tag/general-strike/ it returns a number of articles including one with many resources, links and images with many of the various demands you can share on social media,
GeneralStrike2020: How To Participate 3. https://popularresistance.org/generalstrike2020-how-to-participate/

and another is ....

Build The General Strike Movement To Change The World

4. https://popularresistance.org/build-the-general-strike-movement-to-change-the-world/

then there's...

How Do You Protest When You Can't Take to the Streets? Cyberspace has become the main arena for social movements, as digital tools are used to help activists and citizens communicate, organize, and mobilize.

5. https://www.commondreams.org/views/2020/05/12/how-do-you-protest-when-you-cant-take-streets

which includes this bit...

``Mass social immiseration is, in fact, a deliberate policy, supported by the entire political establishment. It is aimed at creating conditions in which: 1) the ruling class can force a return to work even as the pandemic continues to spread throughout the United States; and 2) workers will be compelled to accept sharp reductions in wages and benefits and an increase in exploitation to pay for the massive handout to the super-rich.

To pressure workers to endanger their lives by returning to work, the majority of the population is being systematically starved of resources. Six weeks after the passage of the “CARES Act” the massive boondoggle to the corporations adopted unanimously by the Democrats and the Republicans, the majority of Americans have not received their $1,200 “stimulus check.''

I'll leave it at that, please visit those links, read up, learn, share as a comment on those sites anything you think will help, share these links around and follow through with the organizing and/or joining in with something already happening.

You may not think of yourself as a leader but we need people to step up, so fear not and even if you're nervous or afraid of public speaking and so forth, try to do it, you'll probably find it gets easier as time goes on.| As has been said, ``Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes''

Contact me with anything you feel should be added, feel free to check the other posts here on TheresThis.com (no parenthesis, no space, just theresthis.com) bookmark this site, subscribe to the RSS feed and get busy making this a better world. and as safe and private communications as possible There are many, many, many other ways to help protect your privacy and those are definitely worth looking into but I’ll just list Signal for now and you can look up more on your own

And adding... We Don’t Have To Choose Between Our Health And The Economy. We are continuing to build the General Strike campaign. Join the next organizing call on Thursday, May 28 at 7:00 pm Eastern/4:00 pm Pacific.
