We can have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth in a few hands, but we can't have both. ~ Louis D. Brandeis
We're calling for a nation-wide sick-out, on March 30th! A work-stoppage might FINALLY get the point across that WE are the people who run this country, NOT the people with the money and the privilege! Let's see how they like it when things come to a screeching halt. No marching in the street. No fire-bombs. No rubber bullets. Just don't show up for work. Teachers, don't show up for school. Don't go shopping. Stay at home, and r ead a book! Take a walk to the park... do anything you want, except don't SPEND any money, or MAKE money for these thieves! What're they gonna do... come looking for three hundred and ten million people, and march us back to work or school? One way or another, we are going to get their attention!
The people who 'own' this country have created a situation where we are all so scared of our own shadows, that we don't even THINK about civil disobedience. We realize the gravity of people's situations all across this land... and we're thinking that this is a relatively safe way to vent some of that pressure. Without a 'safe' way to act out, we're afraid that when push DOES come to shove, it's not going to be pretty. Right now, our country is becoming like a pressure-cooker, and if that top blows, it's really going to be messy. It was thought that this is a fairly safe way to send a message without having anyone get hurt. If you can't join us in taking a day off, you can also participate by just not buying anything that day! In any event, if you find that you can't do either, be sure you still spread the word!
