The Spanish Revolution (VIDEO)

“The Spaniards driven by their youth are demanding that their country is no longer controlled by the “wants” of the “markets” but the needs of the citizens.”


The protests in Spain are well underway. The Spaniards driven by their youth are demanding that their country is no longer controlled by the “wants” of the “markets” but the needs of the citizens. More than half of the young people in Spain are without a job, yet no action is being taken towards combating unemployment. The Spanish government, just like all governments within the EU has supported the bankers and the oligarchy of the plutocrats, instead of supporting the people who see the last vestiges of their savings going to those who created the economic crisis in the first place.

The protests have already been labeled “The Spanish Revolution”. Those involved have been utilizing social media very effectively as they have set up their own online tv (click here)

Furthermore Twitter has been used very efficiently (see here) and every moment new videos, photos and articles are being disseminated. It is more than clear that all events are virally distributed across the web with the aid of the new tools of technology as was the case in the uprisings in Egypt.

You show us the way brothers. The rest must follow your example for a Europe of the peoples against the Europe of the bankers and the plutocrats that drain our blood.
