150 million workers and workers in India are taking part in a two-day general strike, which is probably the biggest general strike in history.
@scottishwobbly the biggest since the general strike in India last year?
@scottishwobbly Please tell me this is the beginning of a revolution. I'd love for there to be a People's Federal Republic of India. Extra points if it's a non-partisan (or multi-party) democracy as opposed to a vanguardist single-party dictatorship.
@scottishwobbly sorry, "workers and workers"?
@scottishwobbly What are the goals of the strike?
@varx it varies from organisation to organisation - at this point, to cripple the state
@scottishwobbly So basically a "fuck you, actually listen to us" kind of thing, where they want the state to start taking them seriously?
@varx yes, to prove their worth through their power. Or even to overthrow the state and build something new - when the state can't run the infrastructure of a country, it has become obsolete
