Is it just me or does it seem as if we're headed ultimately for a general strike?
Look at the momentum here with Walmart, Michigan and what's happening with Starbucks in England right now. People are waking up! The way it looks to me, the next 12 - 18 months look ripe for a nationwide strike.
Let's follow the example of Occupy groups in England who are occupying Starbucks across the country to expose the absurdity of shutting down services for women (like rape crisis centers) when big multinational corporations are paying zero taxes. This whole "Gee gosh, I guess there is nothing else we can do but impose austerity is bullshit. http://occupywallst.org/article/starbucks-occupied-across-britain/
Huge corporations and the super rich have corrupted democratic governments around the world and rigged laws to benefit those corporations and super rich. And when that results in budget deficits, they sell it to us through corporate owned media in a way that makes it sound like WE are being greedy when we insist on living wages, basic health care, decent education, etc.
Austerity is their rallying cry and it is total fucking bullshit.
