The general strike is the only effective weapon labor has to put an end to the capitalist profit motive that is the cause of all our grief. Michael Moore reports that LABOR IN WISCONSIN IS PREPARING FOR A GENERAL STRIKE! California has several solidarity rallies planned for Feb 22.

From: http://www.michaelmoore.com/
Let's start talking about a...
GENERAL STRIKE!!!

"This evening I received word that the 45,000 member Southern Central
Federation of Labor, the local chapter of the AFL-CIO for the Madison
and Southern Central Wisconsin area, has voted to make
preparations for a general strike." – Mike Elk, reporting
from Madison for MichaelMoore.com

He then provides history lessons with Labor Videos of General Strikes.
1. Seattle General Strike of 1919

2. San Francisco General Strike of 1934
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dku-MFnIxaU&feature=related
3. Winnipeg General Strike of 1919
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3AzecrI3Wo&feature=related
For each, there is a list on the right side of other videos of labor actions.

THE TORCH IS PASSED TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF STRUGGLE:
'This Is Our House'
"The Wisconsin Capitol has become the Paris Commune meets an old school
Midwestern union hall. Every night there are discussions of labor history
and labor film showings. It’s almost as if the lacking labor-youth
solidarity that derailed progress during the 60’s has finally
been found in Madison, Wisconsin." – Mike Elk
