I want to see an open source general strike. So much profitable infrastructure depends on free labor in open source. I think major change could be achieved if we banded together and brought that to a screeching halt. We could list demands, like ending ICE contracts and ending fossil fuel contracts, and refuse to take pull requests, publish versions, or fix bugs until those demands are met. No tech for ICE can be accomplished if we threaten no tech for anyone.

That would be great! But we need a strong and organized movement to make it possible.
