General Strike Campaign Growing In The United States; Begins On May Day

By Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese, Clearing the FOG.


Over the last two years, there have been record numbers of worker strikes in the United States not seen since the depression. Since the recession and COVID-19 pandemic started this winter, there have been many wildcat strikes in response to workers having their pay cut and being required to work in hazardous conditions even though they are deemed essential. Now, as the government demonstrates its unwillingness to provide basic protection for the population even as it injects billions of dollars to big industries and banks, support for a general strike is here. We speak with Kali Akuno of Cooperation Jackson about the plans being made for the first general strike on May Day, what that will look like and how the campaign will be sustained over time.

Popular Resistance is holding a national Zoom meeting on April 29 to provide information on ways people can participate in, support and amplify the first of many general strikes. More information at

    Every possible outrage, corporate dollar and dictatorial dirty trick is already being thrown at us.  

    It will take the biggest, best-coordinated local-state-national grassroots movement in history to dump the Trump Dictatorship.
