A nationwide, general strike is happening today, Friday, February 17. Tens of thousands of people are planning to participate in almost every state across the country. They plan to skip work or school and, instead, attend rallies and marches across the country. In addition, a Women’s Strike is planned for March 8 and an Immigrants’ Strike happened yesterday. One of the groups organizing the events is Strike4Democracy. In New York City alone, nearly 20,000 people have responded with interest in a march. (To see photos from today’s strikes, please see Heavy’s story here.)

Here are the cities with strikes and protests planned for today, listed alphabetically by state. These were put together by Strike4Democracy, along with a crowdsourced list that Strike4Democracy is also sharing. You can find a complete, updated list here.

I stand with all of the undocumented workers living in the USA who have decided to add their employers to the list of companies that are taking part in the protest.

up yours

Their protest is in vain, they claim they love this country, but refused to abide by its laws !
The wall will be built, their protests will make it easy for the Roundup.
They will be watched ,photos will be taken we will then know all of your whereabouts, you will make it easy for your deportation. For you are illegal and have broken the laws of the United States of America !
You are criminals and now you expect law-abiding citizens to bow down to your illegal actions .

nobody

So the illegal immigrants add the names of their unfortunate employers to some list of companies involuntarily “taking part” in the protest?

Wonder how many arrived this morning to find they had been fired.

The people wanted a man in the White House that would so something. Now that there is everyone is strikeing against him. Sure there is going to be things that people don’t like, but come on give him a chance. He has been in the office less than a month and all everyone is doing is trying to tell him what to do. When Obama was in Office he did a lot of things that no-one liked but this is just plain stupid. I am a citizen of this country and I am glad to see someone in there that is going to be different. Give him a CHANCE HE MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING THE OTHERS DIDN’T. GUTS TO CHANGE THING THAT WILL WORK.

mobooz

More than half of “the people” wanted a WOMAN in the White House that would do something. Donald Trump WAS given a chance to prove he would be a good president, it was called the campaign. It’s 100 days after the election and you’re still asking people to give him a chance, so I’d say he failed, bigly, and a lot of other people are saying it–I hear it all over, and they’re very unhappy with him, believe me. Some people are saying he lost by twenty, fifty, sometimes as high as one hundred billion votes. Now THAT’S unpopular, folks! Believe me!

Did you know that the federal government takes in about $10 billion a day in income tax, plus Social Security and Medicare? Did you also know that blue states are the most economically active, while red states are the most dependent on federal aid? A general strike dries up a lot of revenue, and if legislators start getting less and less from the pork barrel, they may find themselves incentivized to play nice in Congress again. You can call it stupid all you like, but you may do so at your own peril.

up yours

He’s been in office less than 60 days you’re an idiot !
You’re mad because the Free Ride is stopping !!

So up yours ( mobooz ! ) .
