Women’s strike against Trump, 8 March

This video from the USA says about itself:

SAVE THE DATE! Women‘s General Strike Plan

15 February 2017

Women are going on strike! Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why and when.

“Organizers of the Women’s March on Washington have set March 8 as the date for the Women’s General Strike.

The Day Without a Woman strike, calling on women to collectively resist in support of our rights, was announced earlier this month without a date. A Women’s March Instagram post reads in part:

In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer A Day Without A Woman. We ask: do businesses support our communities, or do they drain our communities? Do they strive for gender equity or do they support the policies and leaders that perpetuate oppression? Do they align with a sustainable environment or do they profit off destruction and steal the futures of our children?”

  1. Jumped over from the reblog by Mr. Militant Negro, where I commented:
    Thanks for the heads up. I participated in the strike/boycott held over inaugural weekend – and will participate in every single one of these — and spread the word to my female friends and sympathetic men likely to participate as well.

    IMPORTANT: It’s not enough to simply participate – you must add your name to whatever gets posted, so that statistics can be gathered – and so that, as more and more of us step up, we can demonstrate that we are gathering strength.

    Once we begin to make a significant impact on increasingly larger businesses, they will have little choice but to join us in protest, until we are too many to continue to ignore. Together, we CAN “make America [really] great again.”
