This September eleventh, join millions of others in saying no to:
The Iraq War has taken hundreds of thousands of innocent lives, cost Americans over $450 billion, and was started by the Bush Administration on false claims.

655,000 Iraqis killed since the invasion
Voting irregularities, disenfranchisement, and the destruction of evidence indicate US election fraud in both the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. These facts put the legitimacy of the current government and American democracy itself in question.

Surveillance, Torture, Civil Rights
Since 9/11, the Bush Administration has steadily curtailed the civil rights of US citizens and shown utter disregard for the human rights of citizens of the wider global community.

American mainstream media is owned by a shrinking number of large corporations. If current trends continue, independent journalism will be entirely replaced in major news sources by entertainment, spin, and sensationalism.

The “War on Terror” has been a boon to military and security contractors. Firms such as Halliburton and the Carlyle Group have won billions in no-bid contracts. Many members of the Bush Administration are former executives in these companies.

There remain many unanswered questions concerning the attacks of September 11. The 9/11 Commission was headed by Washington insiders with close ties to the Bush Administration and has been widely critiqued as a whitewash and coverup. Delving into the untold history of 9/11 has led millions conclude that elements of the US government were in some way complicit in the attacks. However, one thing is certain: the official story does not hold up to scrutiny. And we demand an honest investigation.

Why strike? Why on 9/11?
September 11 is a day of mourning and reflection, but it should also be a day of dissent and action.
Since the tragics events of 9/11/01, America has fallen under a spell of fear and deception. The government peddles lies and steadily chips away at our democratic rights. Hundreds of thousands have been killed in the Iraq war—mostly civilians. Torture, surveillance, tyranny, empire. Many of us can recognize the fascistic direction of this government. But what do we do?
The time has come to let go of our fear—to stand up to lies and tyranny with passion and urgency. To connect with others and show our collective power. It’s time to realize that we’ve got nothing to lose. The time is now.
The General Strike is a national call to action, from citizens to other citizens. It is not about a single issue. It is not an anti-war protest, a civil rights protest, an election fraud protest. It is not about torture, surveillance, corporate media, the 9/11 coverup, or the environment. This strike is about all these issues and more.
We all have different concerns, but we all have the same concern: we are being lied to and this government does not represent us. Join other Americans in demanding truth, justice, and accountability.
This our country.
And our world.
We just have to stand up.
A National Call to Action: Tuesday, September 11th, 2007
