President Trump took an oath to protect and uphold our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and the values the nation was framed upon. Not one week into his Presidency, he was already irreparably in violation of his oath, on multiple counts, between conflicts of interest, compromises in ethics, violations of emoluments clause and nepotism laws, and so much more. Now just three weeks into his Presidency, he’s facing the clear and present reality of committing undeniable Treason (in at least, a co-conspirator capacity). On this day, let us come together and demand of our Representatives, to move immediately and unilaterally for Trump’s impeachment. Stand with us. And let’s make this a reality.

The idea is simple: don’t go to work and don’t purchase anything. Instead hold peaceful protest, engage in community service, and reach out to your local representatives. Engage in democracy in some active way. For those of you who have never heard of a General Strike, historically it has been used to send a powerful message to governments through shutting down of businesses, schools, and institutions. The idea is to send a loud and clear message: people hold the REAL power. Without people purchasing goods, services and providing labor and paying taxes, corporations and governments cannot function properly. When mass populations engage in this kind of dissent, real change has been shown to follow.

So how can you participate? Organizers of the National Strike are calling for people to stay home from work (if they can afford to), school (if they can), and to not purchase anything within reason (gas up the previous day and stock up on food). Participate in local gatherings that are being organized in your city.

Our Demands:
No Ban, No Wall. The Muslim ban is immoral, the wall is expensive and ineffectual. We will build bridges, not walls. Healthcare For All. Healthcare is a human right. Do not repeal the ACA. Improve it or enact Medicare for All. No Pipelines. Rescind approval for DAPL and Keystone XL and adopt meaningful policies to protect our environment. It’s the only one we’ve got. End the Global Gag Rule. We cannot put the medical care of millions of women around the globe at risk.
Disclose and Divest. Show us your taxes. Sell your companies. Ethics rules exist for a reason and presidents should focus on the country, not their corporations and empire.
