Friday June 3, 2011 Global Strike Planned 2011
A global strike is planned by Anonymous and the announcement first appeared on the social networks Twitter and Facebook late last night.
The Global Strike calls for a series of disruptions in the North American version of the Arab Revolution that was spawned in January starting with Egypt’s revolt against Hosni Mubarark’s thirty years of dictatorship. Many have died in Egypt who fought bravely against the former military leader who stole billions for his own personal gain while his country starved in a non-productive economy and high unemployment. The revolution spread from Tunisia, to Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Lybia, Iraq and Iran.
While the G8 Leaders spoke of the Arab spring at their last summit in France they praised the Arab Spring activists for forming the movement that shook the world into a massive revolt.
The 8 wealthiest nations pledged 40 billion dollars in aid to the Arab spring countries to help them achieve their road to democracy. The offer is vague in creating only 10 billion dollars and basically amounted to fancy photo op’s and speeches as most G8 Summits do.
The leaders of these countries including: USA, Canada, England, Germany, France and Italy may be surprised to know that even in their own countries they are not satisfying the needs of their own people. High unemployment, high food prices, high taxes and the government’s corruption is at an all time high which makes each country and explosive powder keg, and breeding grounds for a revolution.
The money stolen by each dictator is enough to make a US stimulus package look like a kid’s allowance.
Tunisia leader Zine El Abidine stole billions and is 50 billion in debt. Hosni Mubarak is said to be worth 80 billion dollars and lived a life of luxury jets, prime properties in the UK, US and the world. His bank accounts in Switzerland now frozen contain billions of dollars of platinum purchases 10 months after the assassination of Anwar Sadat his predecessor.
In Egypt some of the funds stolen by Hosni Mubarak have been recovered and will be returned to the people of Egypt including billions in Wall Street bank accounts.
The money stolen by Qaddafi in Libya is now being diverted to the freedom fighters who are overthrowing his brutal dictatorship of 40 years and NATO is providing some fire power but still the struggles continue each day more Libyans are being murdered by their own countrymen.
General Strike Guidelines
First, according to the General Strike by Anonymous calls for:
1) Boycotts of national corporations from Coke, McDonalds, Monsanto to BP oil the call is for less consumption of corporate products, hit them in the pocket book so to speak. Eliminate the need for gasoline and lower consumption.
2) Strike -The first week of July 2011 is meant for taking vacations and not to purchase anything for at least one week. The General Strike calls for people to collectively join in: a rent strike and not pay their rent. The video advises to prepare for your own food, store food, plant crops that while bear fruit in July, as the boycott will cause shortages in food.
It all sounds quite far fetched but what if a strike were really to happen? The financial consequences would be enormous to corporations and since we are already in a recession it would deepen and lengthen the time for recovery. However this is the goal to hurt corporations where it would do the most damage- their profits.
It will be interesting to see if the world ends in the first week of July and whether a global strike would change the balance of power from government to the people. After all is this not what Sarah Palin is running on – we the people.
