The LACW fully supports the upcoming May 1 General Strike (M1GS), and encourages EVERYONE to participate. The late prophetic Philip Berrigan, (see this article) and (Jonah House), often stressed the need for a general strike in this nation to begin the process of ending capitalism and become a more just and peace-loving society.

The Occupy movement has understood Phil’s prophetic call and has boldly led the effort to fulfill that dream and empower the 99% to bring down this diabolical unjust system and (hopefully) usher in a system based on the biblical principles of Enough found in Exodus 16: 4-36, Sabbath Economics, and Jubilee Justice, found in Leviticus 25 and Deuteronomy 15: 1-11, and adhere to Jesus’ words in Mathew 25: 31-46, that demands that there be NO poor in our midst, and that we worship Yahweh alone, and in this serve Christ who lives in the poor, indeed all victims of empire. Please commit to supporting this epic event and participate in the various activities being planned. Click HERE and HERE or HERE for further info. Remember — ***NO WORK — SCHOOL or SHOPPING: EVERYONE IN THE STREETS!***
