Strike for Gaza January 21-28
Category: Real Life

Palestine is calling for a global strike from the 21st - 28th of January 2024.

Here's a helpful guide on what you can do to participate in the strike. Even if you can't do it all, do the most that you can.

1. No Work

Don't go to work. Don't go to classes. Call out. Talk to your colleagues, organise it together. If you cannot strike the whole time, do an hour together in solidarity. Walk out. Put up signs on your desks and anywhere visible, let people know about it.

2. Be Visible

Wear clothes and bags in support of Palestine. Make signs, banners and similar eye-catching gear. Walk around with them, position them in your window, on your desk, anywhere it's visible. Hand out stickers and flyers and infographics.

3. Don't Buy Stuff

Prepare and buy what is needed beforehand. Avoid going to stores, don't buy anything online. If something is needed, stay visible (see #2) and avoid companies profiting from Israel's crimes (follow the BDS boycott and check out bdnaash.com). Do not buy luxury items or anything not urgently needed for survival.

4. Let the World Know

Talk to media about the strike. Post about it online, on social media and anywhere you can. Talk to people in your life about it. Invite people to strike with you. Spread the word as far as possible. Take part in local action.

5. Avoid Leisure Activities

Don't go to watch a movie or eat in a restaurant. Skip the drinks after work and don't try a new class right now. The goal is to be disruptive, hit the economy and be noticeably absent. If you cannot, follow the above: stay visible, stay loud, keep talking about Palestine.

6. Help Each Other

Ask unions for help. Cover for somebody, engage in mutual aid. Plan for disruptions. Don't try to be perfect - it makes you more likely to give up altogether. Do what you can and help others do what they can. We're stronger together.

7. Shut Social Media Down

Use social media only to spread posts about Palestine. Scroll past the rest, don't engage. Don't post anything else. Don't use apps otherwise. Let Palestinian content flood the online world during strike days.

8. Whatever You Do, It Counts

You can't do it all? That's ok. Find ways you can take part in it. Post on social media, use common hashtags (#StrikeForPalestine #FreePalestine #CeasefireNow). Write a song, make art. Turn your knowledge into informative posts that can be shared. Be the voice of the silenced. The more you can do, the better.
