This is from a Blog of someone names John Sobel, whoever he is, and I
thought it was worth posting here.
NYC General Strike!
* Politics and world affairs
— site admin -at- 5:39 pm
In some countries, when citizens are outraged by egregious governmental
failures or injustice, they call a general strike. A concerted effort by
workers can shut down whole sections of an economy.
New York City is the financial center of the U.S. Other industries, such
as the media, are centered here as well. I say let’s strike.
The economic costs of a shutdown of the financial sector should be
fairly easy to predict, since we have the example of September 11 to go
by. I think one day would be all it would take. Imagine what a powerful
statement would be made if (say) 70% of New Yorkers, throughout the city
and especially on Wall Street, all refused to show up at work on the
I recommend a Tuesday, for greater resonance with September 11, to
remind the rest of the nation that we New Yorkers were the primary
victims. I suggest January 18, the day after we celebrate Martin Luther
King Jr.’s birthday. That too would be resonant, since Dr. King was our
greatest national prophet of peace.
Thoughts? Please comment.
