House Party, General Strike

A few of us met at my place to read some articles together and discuss them.   We read Garret Keizer’s Specific Suggestion: General Strike published in Harpers, Frank Rich’s The “Good Germans” Among Us from the New York Times, and Carolyn Baker’s The Police State Is Right Here, Right Now, published on Information Clearing House.  The links are below.  Please read these and feel free to post reflections or responses to them or to send them to me and I will post them for you. 

Here are the links to the articles:

Those of us who were here decided that we will strike on Election Day, November 6, 2007. 

If anyone else chooses to do that and would like to report here on what it is like, please do that.  Or, again, let me know and I will post for you.
