oday is the day of the General Strike in Oakland, the first American general strike in over half a century. Reports from actions in Oakland are coming in: shops are closed in solidarity; unions are joining the action, including locals from the SEIU, UAW, Alameda Central Labor Council, Phillipine Airline Works, Berkeley Federation of Teachers, the IWW, and the Carpenters Union; and a series of marches are planned for today. Stay tuned for more media and analysis on this historic action that may augur the evolution of the occupation movement into a direct action movement.
