General Strike Against Trump - Feb 17 - Facebook & Webpage Links



How To Participate

We encourage all who are able to demonstrate their resistance in any of the following ways.

Do not work (if possible). Post your support on social media.
Do not purchase anything.
“#BreakLunch” Use your lunch break to disrupt and participate:
Use social media to show how you #BreakLunch. Tweet, FB, Instagram, and Snapchat messages that support democracy. Include hashtags #BreakLunch, #GeneralStrike, #F17
Donate your lunch money that day to cause you believe in. Post about it and use those same hashtags.
Get creative and show the world how you #BreakLunch
Reach out to your representatives in Washington DC or your state and tell them why you are “striking” today, and post about it using strike related hash tags.
Join with other like-minded folks and occupy public space with positive messages of resistance and solidarity on our events page.
Get creative, always be nonviolent, and consider fun ways of showing dissent.
Participate in the National Day of Community Serviceto coincide with the General Strike on February 17. We hope this will allow folks who cannot ‘strike’ to take advantage of their employer’s commitment to Community Service and Community Service Leave request systems. We will announce more details and how to participate once we have confirmed commitment from institutions with whom we are currently negotiating.
Make your feelings known at any of a series of First Amendment Open-Mic gatherings. Again, more details and participating venues to follow.
If you are a teacher or student, please consider participating in the National Teach-In on Democracy set to take place February 17. Keep your students engaged.
This is not a National Day-Off; we’ve got work to do!! Get out and get busy!!! Be Peaceful! Have fun!
