This is an HUGE mistake.This GENERAL STRIKE will ONLY be GENERAL if we successfully recruit the masses of general public...working people.Its already bad enough that we have no consistent imaging or promotion,that appeals to the REAL 99%.Instead we have posters with screaming,angry "intifadah-like"imagery,or "commie-wanna-be" images. This strike WILL NOT suceed unless sensible,intelligent people insist that the fringe of the movement understand that no "fringe" has ever suceeded in massive social change.We have half of the work done for us in that many,many Americans of all walks of life want to achieve economic justice,to see the power of money removed from politics,and real democracy restored ! All that is left to do is gasther them behind us into a cohesive movement.That will not be done by a leaderless group with no spefic goals,with consistent strategy of messaging...that allows whoever wants top contribute angry,off-putting imagery to turn-off rather that turn-on. PLEASE folks..we have a tremendous opputunity here.Lets not blow it.
