General Strike Has Everything!

Q: What has 9/11 truth, election fraud, the war in Iraq, the corrupt corporate media, war profiteering, torture, illegal surveillance, and civil rights?

A: General Strike. No kidding. It says so right here:
Iraq War

The Iraq War has taken hundreds of thousands of innocent lives, cost Americans over $450 billion, and was started by the Bush Administration on false claims.

Election Fraud

Voting irregularities, disenfranchisement, and the destruction of evidence indicate US election fraud in both the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. These facts put the legitimacy of the current government and American democracy itself in question.

Surveillance, Torture, Civil Rights

Since 9/11, the Bush Administration has steadily curtailed the civil rights of US citizens and shown utter disregard for the human rights of citizens of the wider global community.

Corporate Media

American mainstream media is owned by a shrinking number of large corporations. If current trends continue, independent journalism will be entirely replaced in major news sources by entertainment, spin, and sensationalism.

Military Profiteering

The “War on Terror” has been a boon to military and security contractors. Firms such as Halliburton and the Carlyle Group have won billions in no-bid contracts. Many members of the Bush Administration are former executives in these companies.

9/11 Coverup

There remain many unanswered questions concerning the attacks of September 11. The 9/11 Commission was headed by Washington insiders with close ties to the Bush Administration and has been widely critiqued as a whitewash and coverup. Delving into the untold history of 9/11 has led millions to conclude that elements of the US government were in some way complicit in the attacks. However, one thing is certain: the official story does not hold up to scrutiny. And we demand an honest investigation.
Looks like a good strike, I mean, site.

Elsewhere it says:
This is about unity and tolerance and common understanding of the predicament we’re in. We must stand together. This is a new kind of action: decentralized and viral. It can’t be stopped!
It's about time. Say it now.

General Strike.

Say it again, together this time and with feeling!

General Strike!

Thank you.
