*The General Strike:*

*Past, Present and Future*

General strikes have toppled governments, put down military coups, won 
shorter hours, and forced employers to recognize unions. General strikes 
have shut down entire industries, and brought entire cities under 
workers' control - at least for a time. General strikes demonstrate our 
enormous power, our ability to make a new world, should we organize to 
win it. They cause bosses the whole  world over to tremble. We will 
explore the history of general strikes, and the possibilities for 
rebuilding a labor movement capable of wielding so powerful a force.
