Several Groups are now calling for a General Strike on Monday in
BC, and grassroots militants and leaders from most locals have
endorsed the call and are planning on going out. Most notably, the
Community Solidarity Coalition, an umbrella group of radicals and
labour militants who have been largely leading the strike actions in
victoria and the surrounding area, has issued a call for a General
Strike. The BC Federation of Labour, the overarching labour
administration, has been caught behind and is still trying to "catch
up" with planning being done. Transit workers have said they will
go out on Monday morning.

Today at the MayDay demonstration in Victoria an FNAC member
was one of the speakers to a union rally of around 1,000. Two
Community Solidarity Coalition members also spoke at the rally.
Around 1,500 leafets put out by FNAC announcing a General
Strike and listing a series of four demands were distributed
throughout the course of the march.

Several hundred FNAC posters have been printed up announcing a
general strike and they will be distributed throughout the city
starting Sunday.

The word from militant locals in Victoria is that they are pushing
for a strike until demands are met, not for a one-off General Strike
action.
