Strike Until a Confirmation Hearing Is Held!
By refusing to hold confirmation hearings for President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee, the Republican-controlled Senate has unilaterally precipitated a constitutional crisis. The most effective action that can be taken in this situation is a strike by sitting Supreme Court Justices. To continue with business as usual would be a capitulation to the anti-democratic actions of the Senate and the normalization of authoritarianism. We call upon the justices of the United States Supreme Court to strike until confirmation hearings for President Obama's nominee are held.
