Anonymous and Open Call for #14N: Distributed Systemic General Strike

Anonymous and Open Call for

#14N

P2P and Distributed Systemic General Strike

This is an anonymous call for a transnational and indefinite General Strike to start on November 14, 2012

Objectives

  1. To start building an real general strike that will connect all existing forms of cultural, social, economic, political strikes (various forms of disobedience, boycotts, hacks, leaks) and expand geographically in order to allow more people to stop selling their labour and being exploited, starving and left to die because of hunger, cold, and carelessness
  2. To bring forward the real and existing alternatives to the capitalist mode of production by linking them directly to those who urgently in need during indefinite general strikes and in the aftermath. So that they do not have to sell their labour power to private individuals
  3. To support workers’ who are joining the general strike on November 14, 2012 in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, France, Cyprus, Malta and Ireland as well as to give an echo to those organising solidarity actions in other parts of Europe and the World

Steps

  1. Organising assemblies to provide P2P distributed money Bitcoin for the striking workers, as well as many indebted people, homeless, jobless, so on in form of zero rate credits and space for exchange for livelihoods during the period of work stoppage
  2. Connecting striking workers and unemployed to the nearest alternative, post capitalist production cooperatives, open hardware collectives, eco-villages so on that accept Bitcoin for exchange; so that the exchange between the people and alternative economy collectives start to develop exchange
  3. Employ exiting P2P transportation collectives and build new ones to provide collectives and the people with transportation to mobilise and maintain exchange between different localities
  4. Inviting striking workers and unemployed to coin in urban commoning collectives or peer production networks instead of being have to sell their labour to private companies

If you agree with the call please spread it within and without your networks so it goes viral, and start:

to create enough amount of Bitcoins for your assembly: http://bitcoin.org/

to link your assembly with alternative economy communities and commoners: http://gen.ecovillage.org/http://mapunto.net/http://opensourceecology.org/

to invite striking workers and people who is in need to come to your assembly

to provide them with Bitcoin credits with zero rent, livelihoods to exchange initially

to connect them directly to alternative economy networks as users but also peer producers..

Lets build

 Another World Now!

  2. We have the beginning here of building the alternative economy. The websites you have brought together here Orsan http://gen.ecovillage.org/, http://mapunto.net/, http://opensourceecology.org/…together with bitcoin and I would add http://www.ehow.com/ give us all the data we need to get
    started. The Occupy Sandy set up in NYC is a great example of what can happen in response to a catastrophe. ZAD in France shows what can come together in an emergency protest situation. These positive developments tend to get lost in the discussion about dates for strikes and protest marches.

    Things are already happening. We are preparing for a clash, but we don’t know what form it will take. The next step would be to establish locations with communities which are committed to providing food, shelter, and basic necessities, for people who are temporarily or permanently opting out of the system. There must be many cooperatives, farmers who have land, individuals and groups who share the same values. The most difficult will be in urban areas. But opening our doors to strangers in need will not be easy.

    What might help is to forsee the coming struggle and upheaval and so be prepared in some way. Many have said ‘things cannot go on like this’, but they do, and as yet there is no real indication of breakdown here in developed coutries. Scandals and corruption revealed, but everything continues as ‘normal’ on the surface. So it is likely that when the crash comes it will come very suddenly, with no warning. Focussing on preparation now may be the most positive contribution we can make.
