GENERAL   STRIKE

DEMANDS

1- Stop everything UNTIL THIS GOVERNMENT FALLS

STOP EVERYTHING UNTIL THIS GOVERNMENT AND THE OPPRESSIVE SYSTEM IT UPHOLDS FALLS. WE JUST HAVE EACH OTHER AND WE NEED TO CONTINUE WHAT WE ARE DOING —PAUSE—NOW IS THE TIME TO BEGIN ORGANIZING AN INTERNATIONAL GENERAL STRIKE. NOT BY TAKING TO THE STREETS, BUT BY CALLING FOR GLOBALLY COORDINATED “SICK-OUTS” EVERYWHERE. LETS SHUTDOWN EARTH. ITS TIME TO LET EARTH GO SILENT, AND MAKE A REVOLUTION IN A PEACEFUL WAY WITHOUT VIOLENCE, WITHOUT WEAPONS, WITHOUT POLICE OR PRISONS. WE JUST NEED TO: OCCUPY OUR HOUSES, GROW FOOD ON OUR ROOF-TOPS OR COMMUNITY GARDENS, AND ORGANIZE MUTUAL-AID NETWORKS, TO BE AUTONOMOUS.

2- Abolish Prisons 

3-All free land and free space should be occupied for growing food, including roof tops/ community gardens, street garden etc. and share the food between we all.

4- Free school and healing centers for all

5- Open all Borders 

6- Abolition of the surveillance system

7- The end of corporations (Stop consuming – Recycle)

8- The end of police and military

9-Focus on Sustainably and Environment

10-The end of Money and Class = Transparent Accountability

11-ABOLISH THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN GENDERS (Patriarchy/racism/imperialism/colonialism, and all the divisions of people among classes and hierarchical structures that impose themselves on us)

12- Abolish the State

13-Equality between all people

 

STRATEGIES

1- POWER   X   COLLABORATION

Power is about concentration forces in one person/ a small group of people or even a big group of people but it is vertical and hierarchical; generally with support of militias, police or militaries, with weapons, etc.

X

Collaboration is the process of 2 or more people working together to complete a task or archive a goal. Collaboration is similar to cooperation most collaboration can be decentralized and egalitarian. This is a horizontal flow.  Collaboration enable people to engaje with others productively and efficiently. Is important for collaborating:To have a common goal (affinity groups), trust each other, clarify the principles, communicate openly and effectively, appreciate the diversity of ideas, focus in your own responsibility and the responsibility of your collective.  

One people in power will never do a revolution, but many people in collaboration, IS the REVOLUTION.

 

2- Act locally, coordinate globally

Global Network that can allow for coordinated action, Mutual-aid format.

 Mutual aid is a voluntary reciprocal exchange of resources and services for mutual benefit.

(We need a way to organize locally, block by block, building by building, but coordinate our actions with movements in Catalonia, Beirut, Hong Kong,etc..)

This Network has to be universally accessible. Most of the world can only connect to the Internet through their mobile phone. It must be built with them in mind.When you enter that space, everything in there should be built on decentralized, open source, encrypted platforms. Privacy is essential.

Cildo MeirelesZero Cruzeiro1974–78

3- Form a Local Credit-Commons that Can Be Organized into a Global Network

Elimination of money, or even the implementation of a credit-commons or mutual-credit exchange system that could create an alternative economy. We could even build a space that operates like a real global system. A parallel universe that give people not just an idea of what is possible, but a working functioning model of a global system, mutual aid. I see this built like a bazaar, Hectic, decentralized, uncontrollable, but still managing to form the right kind of connections and networks to keep everything functioning, most of all it’s a picture of a system that’s fun, lively, community based, and a constant work in process. It is the opposite of the corporate, bureaucratic, top down, oppressive, bourgeois mediocrity that defines our world today.
