Immigrant organizers are planning a general strike Thursday,
A Day Without Immigrants protests are planned across the United States, in response to Trumps promises to build a wall across the countrys Southern border and deport millions of undocumented immigrants. Some schools and restaurants are planning to close Thursday to allow the students and workers to participate.
Celebrity chef Jose Andres plans to close his five restaurants, he told NPR.
It was an easy decision, said Andres, who emigrated to the United States in 1991 from Spain and is now a citizen. It seems immigrants, especially Latinos, it seems we are under attack.
Now, perhaps taking their cue from a Day Without Immigrants, organizers of the Womens March have set March 8th for their next national event General Strike: A Day Without A Woman.
March 8 is International Womens Day.
The post indicates the strike is in the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation.
Millions of people participated in marches across the country and world on Jan. 21, one day after President Donald Trump took office. The march in Washington, D.C., was the largest, attracting hundreds of thousands of demonstrators.
The protesters did not have specific demands, though many objected to Trump, who was accused of sexual assault and/or harassment by nearly a dozen women who alleged the encounters occurred years before. Trump bragged about being able to kiss and touch women without their consent on a 2005 Access Hollywood tape that was released weeks before the election.
In an editorial in The Guardian, eight feminist activists wrote about the purpose of a strike.
The idea is to mobilize women, including trans women, and all who support them in an international day of struggle a day of striking, marching, blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work, boycotting, calling out misogynistic politicians and companies, striking in educational institutions. These actions are aimed at making visible the needs and aspirations of those whom lean-in feminism ignored: women in the formal labor market, women working in the sphere of social reproduction and care, and unemployed and precarious working women.
Sounds like “a day with good traffic reports”
When is the Day Without Fascist Nazi Snowflakes going to happen?
That’ll help. Maybe we need a day without white men.
I want a day without democrats.
All funded and planned by Obama, Soros and Jarrett.
Day without fake media!
Damn I’d like to see a “ day without white males.
Every essential service would shut down.
so he can close his 5 restaurants and let us all know that we can close him down by not giving him our money now.
Only a day? What sort of commitment is that? They should go for a year, at least.
I’d like to try four years without LibTards.
Sounds good—they won’t get paid either. A wash.......
Why not a Month without Wetbacks? Year? Decade? Century?
“Celebrity chef Jose Andres plans to close his five restaurants, he told NPR.”
He can close them forever as far as I’m concerned. If he doesn’t want to hire fellow countrymen, let him open up restaurants in Mexico where he would have a large pool of the cheap labor he so desires.
I don’t know if any of the illegal invaders in my area will be staying away from their restaurant jobs. I think I may eat at Chik-fil-a, which has all-American young people staffing their facilities in my area.
The best idea: A day without cops!
Try days, weeks, months without the gringo’s money. Then see where you are.
a day without illegal aliens is always a good day...
I pretty much nailed down my plan for that when I was around 14 y.o.
[ Celebrity chef Jose Andres plans to close his five restaurants, he told NPR. ]
Haha! THAT’LL show ‘em!!!
Close them for six months to a year. Then you can REALLY make a statement!!
How about a month?
I could use an extended vacation.
