General Strike and Protest actions

are being called for Thursday, January 20th, 2005.
during presidential Inauguration Day

Since our leaders don't have the moral courage to speak out against the war in Iraq, Inauguration Day, Thursday, January 20th, 2005 is "Not One Damn Dime Day" in America.  On "Not One Damn Dime Day" those who oppose what is happening in our name in Iraq can speak up with a 24-hour national boycott of all forms of consumer spending.  During "Not One Damn Dime Day" please don't spend money, and don't use your credit card.  Not one damn dime for gasoline.  Not one damn dime for necessities or for impulse purchases.  Nor toll/cab/bus or train ride money exchanges.  Not one damn dime for anything for 24 hours.

From the USA Today website:

Show George II, "The W", how much we support his reign, by supporting a General Strike on Thursday, January 20, 2005.

We must show the world that we are not satisfied with "black box" voting, where there is no paper trail of the votes cast.  Over 8,000 votes in precincts of less than 700, voting machines counting backwards, misallocating the votes from Kerry to Bush.  Dozens and dozens of instances of unquestionable vote fraud aided and abetted by Republicans both in the Corporate world and the Political.

From the Portland IndyMedia website:

We must show that "We the People of the united States of America" are out here, are sovereign, and that we will no longer stand by while our basic rights and liberties are ripped away from us like bloody swatches of skin. A "General Strike" means:

No Economic Activity Whatsoever. For examples (list not all inclusive):

No buying gas
No buying food
No fast food
No paying bills
No use of US Postal Service
No movies, Pay-Per-View, or video game rentals
No taking public transportation
No paying of tolls (bridge, turnpike, etc.)

If we all, those who do NOT support the regime of George W. Bush (et al), stay away from any economic activity on Inauguration Day, we will hurt his supporters in the most significant way - in their pocket books!

Imagine, millions and millions of folks missing work, holding rallies, and not spending a dime that day (!!!).  OhMyGod, the sky will fall! Repooplicans mobbing DC for the festivities, depending on the 'plebes' to be there serving them, and on Inauguration Day, everyone is marching to a different drum! Who will wipe their - - noses? Or gather laurels for them to rest upon?

Of course, a person needing medical attention, or ongoing care (i.e. dialysis) is exempted.

Otherwise, we need to Shut the Country Down on Inauguration Day! Get your family, your friends, your co-workers - women, men, black, brown, WHATEVER! It doesn't matter your background; if you value your freedom, and want to resist the fascists who are taking control, STRIKE!
