The SUM & The SUM II
Description: 
The 2017-18 SUM STRATAGEM is an integral approach to art, activism and fundamental social change through a Nonviolent General Strike of social, political and economic noncooperation. It will begin on Mon, Nov. 5, 2018 (right after the weekend of the Nov. 3-4, Million Mask March to Washington D.C., and one day before the Nov. 6th U.S. Congressional elections). This will be made possible by the Neo-Transcendentalists unifying the 80 million New Progressives in America during a Cultural Creatives’ Convergence of political 3rd parties, the Green Shadow Cabinet, Transition U.S., the remnants of the Occupy Movement, religious liberals like the Unitarian Universalists (UU), Society of Friends (Quakers) and the Network of Spiritual Progressives (NSP) which include Tikkun readers, in addition to socially conscious conservatives within the Ron Paul Libertarian factions among the Tea Party and We The People’s 2009 Continental Congress. Not to mention the blue-green alliance of the Labor Network for Sustainability in an effort to mend the fragmentation among unions, students, teachers, workers and socially conscious businesses, organizations, groups, collectives and institutes. It begins with Zevin Cruz’s introduction of the 2017-18 SUM STRATAGEM at the June 2-4, 2017 LEFT Forum.
