Activists are calling for people to stop working and buying things for a day to bring down Donald Trump.
A national general strike across the US is being called for 17 February – the Friday before President’s Day – as a way of protesting the new administration.
Those behind the strike hope that they can cause enough disruption to bring about change in the political system.
As a business owner and concerned citizen, I will participate in the #NationalStrike on February 17th.
And as a designer, I will to do my part to help build visibility and support for the cause. Join me.
Let’s designate a day on which no one (that is, anyone who can do so without being fired) goes to work, a day when no one shops or spends money, a day on which we truly make our economic and political power felt, a day when we make it clear: how many of us there are, how strong and committed we are, how much we can accomplish.
