A frontal assault is taking place against all public workers, public services and education. It is not just in Wisconsin and the midwest but throughout the country. Now is the time To fight back and use the power of the working class and students. As working people and the youth in Egypt and throughout the Middle East are standing up and it is time now for the working people in the US to stand up and fight.

WE HAVE THE POWER!

At the San Francisco Labor Council on February 28, 2011 an amendment endorsing a general strike if called for by Wisconsin unions was proposed to a resolution for solidarity with Wisconsin workers and against concessions. The amendment called for endorsement and organization in SF for a General Strike if the unions of Wisconsin call for such actions. This was defeated after some delegates said it might not pass the California AFL-CIO and the National AFL-CIO and it might violate Taft-Hartley.

The amendment was defeated but the need for a general strike against the union busters in Wisconsin and here is California is growing. The ideology of “share the pain” which is pushed by Obama, Jerry Brown and our union officials must be opposed. There are 18 billionaires in SF alone and 84 in California. We need to demand that they pay for this crisis. Join us to discuss the cause of this crisis and how to fight back and win.
