The Shift Episode 66: #WildCatStrikeUSA2021 with Teodrose Fikremariam

Please pay attention to this special episode featuring the editor and principal writer at The Ghion Journal, Teodrose Fikremariam. Teodrose has been writing for years, describing a political landscape rife with miscommunication and replete with disinformation designed to sow the seeds of division. After the events at the Capitol building on January 6th, 2021, he has had enough. The storming of the Capitol has been called a coup attempt and an insurrection by many in the mainstream and the echo chambers of social media continue to polarize American political discourse to the point of what some describe as a cold civil war. This political division comes at the heels of a summer of violence across the country as the Black Lives Matter movement hit the streets to protest racial disparities and the disproportionate use of police violence against people of color. Political and racial tensions are at an all-time high. All of this in the midst of an economic lockdown that has many American families stressed to the breaking point. Teodrose understands that such division is not the way to a peaceful and prosperous nation. Clearly, divide and conquer techniques have been used by elites for millennia to solidify power and the profound increase in wealth and power for those at the top of the pyramid over the past year should make us all wonder if we are not getting played. In order to encourage a spirit of unity, Teodrose has called for a workers strike on inauguration day, January 20th, and is asking truckers across the nation to park their rigs on highway choke points across the nation to tell our leaders that enough is enough. Word is rapidly spreading through #WildCatStrikeUSA2021. Please listen in as we discuss the issues that brought us to this place, and provide the solutions through solidarity. This is just the beginning. Find out more about Teodrose and his work at
