Rumors have been flying for a week that the Occupy protesters will be launching a nationwide general strike. We have been biting our tongue waiting for a formal decision.

Mother Jones tweets [2]:

From our reporter at #occupyoakland [3] General Assembly just now MT @timmcdonnell: General strike passes with 1184 votes of approval

JackalAnon tweets [4]:

STRIKE APPROVED FOR NEXT WEDNESDAY! GENERAL STRIKE FIRST TIME IN THE USA SINCE 1946!

(The last American general strike was also in Oakland [5]).

The strike will occur on November 2nd [6].

Occupy Wall Street in New York has also been considering a proposal for a general strike. And there are also rumors of a global general strike next year [7].

Note: We’ll update this post as soon as we learn whether or not the New York resolution passed.
