or A-Radio's Prison strike of 2016  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/10/433535.shtml )

an Industry of Workers, who are going to take Action with a STRIKE.

been a long time right? Maybe *never*? (during the 1990s-internet era, of Indymedia)

Strikes are part and parcel of the history of the Left, and struggles against corporate capitalist plutocracy.

Without strikes, you don't have any teeth to bare vs. the corporate capitalist plutocrats (yeah Trump included) who exploit your life 24/7.

Strikes give you leverage, power and clout.

When are YOU going to organize a strike at your own shop, factory, restaurant, business at which you work?
