But if you’re not sure what you’ll do come sunrise, consider a Zen approach. Stop everything in your life — leave your smartjunk behind, skip work or school, stay away from the shops — and print out a handful of Ultimatums to whack up in the streets of your town.
As you slap them up on lampposts and bus shelters, think of what the future could hold. A new dark age following a climate-disaster meltdown? Or an inspired pivot onto a sane sustainable path?
There’s almost no time left to stave off the worst. World leaders better heed our one demand — Zero Fossil Fuel Emissions by 2030 — or there’s gonna be hell to pay.
It’s on. Today, let’s rage!
Ten years after Occupy Wall Street one thing has become painfully clear: the people in charge of our global system have run it aground.
Ecosystems are crashing, financial markets teetering, climate wars breaking out. Suddenly humanity is in a Code-Red Emergency and our world leaders haven’t got a clue about how to get us out of it.
It’s time for another global uprising — OWS 2.0.
But this one will be a little different. Instead of marching in the streets and commandeering parks, we’re calling for a Worldwide General Strike — A Day of Rage Against World Leaders.
On September 17th, everything simply ... stops.
Kids don’t go to school. Parents don’t go to work. We don’t drive our cars. We don’t go shopping.
We bring the world to a standstill!
And then, as revolutionary promise hangs in the air, we deliver this ultimatum to our leaders:
Print English version
This six-pronged plan is our only hope of pulling out of the death spiral we’re in.
Share it with everyone you know.
Blast it all over the internet.
Print out multiple copies and plaster them all over your city, your neighborhood, your workplace, your campus . . . Slap this ultimatum on every lamppost, bank window, storefront and government-office door.
Let everyone on the planet read it, face it, own it, acknowledge it, honor it!
Then, at COP26 in Glasgow this November, if our leaders refuse to move on the Code-Red Emergency and agree on urgently needed cuts to emissions, We the People of the world will rise up and bring their doomsday machine to a sudden shuddering halt.
And on its ashes, we’ll build something new.

#WorldwideGeneralStrike TACTICAL BRIEFING No. 1 Alright you radicals, rebels and redeemers out there,Once in every era, the call of history compels a small number of people — or even just one person — to steer the world in a fresh new direction. This is that call.Why? The Earth is on fire. An unjust and destructive financial system threatens to pull everything down with it as it crumbles under its own weight. And the most disastrous pandemic in a century — having raged worldwide for more than a year — has exposed fatal systemic flaws that go all the way down to our most fundamental notions of how we ought to live and think as a species.Read More
