North Iowa Greens endorse call for national general strike
Mason City, Iowa – Where Do We Go From Here (A non-partisan community action group) and The 4th District Green Party Chapter have joined to support our union workers on General Strike Day. The Green Party co-chair has reached out to the Cerro Gordo Democratic Party via their Facebook page along with an invitation to their co-chair of the 4th District Democrats. We would love to welcome the Democratic Party to the event. Under the current administration, our union workers are under attack. First, the Trump administration came for the Muslims, and now he is coming for immigrants and is targeting our hard-working union men and women.
Early today, one union worker in our group said he has worked for forty years to get where we are today. Having fought for fair pay and a safe working environment for American workers, just to have it all go away with the stroke of a pen.
We have heard the call from the Industrial Workers of the World for this strike and are mobilizing to show our support. On Friday, February 17th, we will assemble to show our support for the hard working American workers. The rally will start at 5 P.M. and go through 8 P.M. in Central Park across the street from City Hall.
