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.
wanna say for the confusion, i copied n pasted the info from a headline and fucked it up bc im a dumbass, it was 2016 there were 150 million (that's why it says workers and workers). Not to burst anyone's hopes though, so far media reports are saying it's tens of millions this year
@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 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
