*[https://actionnetwork.org/events/america-strikes-back?source=email& America Strikes Back]—February 27, 2017. At 12:00 am, we will begin a 24-hour strike! Americans will cease ALL financial activity. We will not go to work, we will not shop or make any other purchases, no trading, no financial activity at all. It seems that our current government, in particular, Trump, only responds when his ego is hurt or it will cost money.  This will hit America in the wallet, a complete labor, and financial strike.  For all practical purposes, we should aim for a complete financial activity shut down or blackout period.  We will not engage in any financial activities what so ever, we will "sit in" for 24 hours. Not since the Industrial Revolution has there been an overwhelming strike against corporations and government. Let's hit them where it hurts the most, their pocketbooks!
 
 
 
===Tax Returns, Fairness in Taxation, and Government Transparency===
 
*[https://www.taxmarch.org/ Nationwide Tax March] on Saturday, April 15 - '''Events in over 100 cities!''' This is not just about his tax returns. President Trump needs to be straight with the American people. To whom does he owe favors? Who are his policies really intended to benefit? Who will he put first? Working families are struggling to make ends meet, but we pay our fair share in taxes – does Donald Trump pay any at all? We, the American people, are standing together with a common belief in the value of transparency in government, fairness in taxation, and the value of our Constitution. We will march together against any forces — corporate or political — that oppose it.
