Facebook shutdown our Truckers to Shutdown America page; cutting off millions of people from learning, sharing and expressing themselves freely. Facebook responded INSTANTANEOUSLY to our political opponents, citing “Community Standards” violations. On October 11th-13th, let’s all show up on Facebook’s doorstep with our original “Community Standards” in hand — our U.S. Constitution. Let’s also let them know that we intend to file a Class Action lawsuit on behalf of their billions of users for intentionally violating our god-given rights.
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 reason for this shutdown is not to hurt this country in any way shape or form, but is, in fact, a peaceful method of sending a message to Washington, D.C.
The General Strike is a national call to action, from citizens to other citizens.
Unions, corporations and the major parties have failed to deal with pressing matters of war and peace, income inequality, crime and punishment and the meaning of citizenship itself. It has fallen to the American people to set things right!
Public protest is an important part of democracy, just as much as a free press, a judiciary, and congress. A general strike does NOT have to be violent. It is a matter of CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, NOT VIOLENCE. You are NOT going to school. You are NOT going to work. You are NOT shopping. You do NOT have to be violent to NOT do those things. March legally. Protest legally. Our causes are many but our voices are one.
You will need to plan, set up and hold your own local protest. Vigorously promote your protest via local activist and church groups. Also on social networking sites- Facebook, Meetup, Tribe, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube, etc. Call in to talk radio shows, print and distribute this flyer, create freeway banners, write OPEDs, etc., etc. You will need to organize enough people to shut down, disrupt normal operations of your local city, town, county and state.
