Day 2: people of Spain unite and occupy criminal government

Protesters shout slogans during a demonstration outside Madrid's ParliamentThousands of Spaniards have returned to Madrid’s Plaza de Neptune to protest the latest, highly contentious wave of austerity measures, following a violent police crackdown on Tuesday.

For the second day running, thousands of demonstrators led by the so-called indignados, or outraged, descended on the square – some 100 meters from Spain’s Congress building. Many in the crowd chanted “government, resign!”while hoisting up placards bearing the slogan “No” in opposition to the country’s austerity program.

There was a tense standoff between demonstrators and police, who have formed a security cordon around the square. Police eventually yielded, as the protesters poured onto the square amidst jubilant cheers.

Pamphlets have been circulating through the crowd imploring those present not to repeat Tuesdays’s mistakes. The tract implores those present not to provoke the police, giving them a pretext to cripple the event, and has recommended a sit in protest.

Minor scuffles have periodically broken out between protesters, though in each case they quickly were resolved without police intervention.

The demonstrators are calling for new elections, saying the proposal of deeper budget cuts proves the ruling Popular Party has lost its legitimacy by failing to keep its promises.

The Bank of Spain said Wednesday that the country, where one in four faces unemployment, is in the grips of a deep depression.

Evictions have also skyrocketed across Spain as thousands have failed to repay bank loans. Many protesters were particularly enraged that the government was making cuts to health, education and public sector salaries while pumping funds into the country’s ailing banking sector to keep it afloat.

Clashes erupted Tuesday between protesters and police, who used batons and rubber bullets to disperse the crowd.

The violent protest led to 38 arrests and 64 injuries, including eight police officers. The growing tensions come as the government is preparing a new round of austerity measures in its draft budget for 2013 on Thursday.

  1. IsraelIsTheTerrorist

    ISIS RA ELOHIM= ISRAEL. Friday, Freyja, (Moon Goddess) for the people of the Moon= Islam. Saturday, Satyr-day, Satan, Sabbath, Saturn is for the “chosen” Elohim= Judaism. Sunday, sun-day, Ra/Re, Son of God, is for the people of the Sun= Christianity.
    Allah/Alloh/Eloh/Elohim are all the same. Everything has been stolen and condensed, reader’s digest style, to keep you circle jerking with arguments of divinity about how God cares about a particular race and piece of real estate. Break the chains! It’s all a system of control. ALL governments, religions, media, entertainment, sciences and resistance movements have been infiltrated and corrupted. ALL! The terrifying lack of courage is all that is required to keep you endlessly chasing phantoms.

  2. The ONLY way is to paralyse the system. Indeed. It makes me think that in China there are MASSIVE strikes at FoxCom the slave labout Apple company subsidiary. Steve Jobs was not the nice guy the rotten financial media described. Hang the Globalists. When I think about all the myth about the friendly and politically correct BS about Apple, I think about Spain, Greece, FoxComm and all these corporate bums like Haliburton, Apple, Microsoft, Vodafone, Google all of them ! paying real income tax rates of 1% to 2$ ! Check the facts.
    Meanwhile the slaves when they cant find a job, get taxed 40% and pay VAT taxes of up to 25%! (in Spain). Hang also the bigh corporate bums. The people are attacking their governements. They should also do it to the multinationals, the real center of power.

  3. USA as Europe are runned by Nazi USA controlled fascists. The scum in power in Madrid is controlled by the NWO BIlderbergers. Quite clear what its all about. Its about returning us all to Adolf Hitler dream of a Nazi Reich where people will be ecploited like cattle and sheep. As for the ones that refuse to obey it will eventually be the FEMA camps in USA and in Europe, exclusion of the euro zone and hyperinflation. Fascist globalist nazi scum. I used to think that Alex Jones wasnt a litte bit crazy. Not today unfortunately. Its really about transforming the planet in a sophistaced neocpm nazi bankster prison.

      Still chasing Nazis hungh? Your detective skills are not up to par. Ever wonder why Hitler and Ghandi were friends?
      The overt omission by too many “rebel” sites of the words Jews and Judaism is laughable. keep chasing your tails, you’ll never get it done with PC code words. Read the damned Talmud, the Protocols of the Leraned Elders of Zion, I implore you, read them before you spout some anti-Semitic BS. They (modern “Jewry”) are Khazars, Ashkenazis and Sephardics. Arabs are Semites. It’s all Judeo-Chr-Islamism. The BLACK CUBE/Saturn/YHVH are all one and the same. The Teffilin/Qa’aba/Cross (unfolded box) are all a BLACK CUBE/Metatron Cube/Tetragrammaton/Hexagram- it’s ALL 666.

      Why do think JESUS equals 666? Tet is 9/Truth in Hebrew. Multiply each letter times 9, then add for sum. J E S U S

      90 + 45 + 171 + 189 + 171 = 666

      Now do that with LUCIFER, GOSPEL, MESSIAH and CROSS.
      Coincidence? Please, to anyone operating under Messianic fairy tales, Judeo based religions or Divine arguments, PLEASE! Stop living in denial. Your ancient knowledge has been destroyed, your ancient Gods turned to Demons, your culture replaced and your future erased. Wake up to the WHOLE scam before it’s too late. All roads lead back to one particular group, it’s the 800 lb. gorilla in the room no one wants to talk about. Don’t be childish in your emotions because what I’m revealing sounds like “hate”. Does anyone out there so quickly and conveniently forget the EVIL I’m addressing?

      “We, the Jewish people, control America. And Americans know it”
      -Former Israeli PM, Ariel Sharon

      Small minds talk about people and stuff… average minds talk about things and events… Great minds talk about ideas and ways to move forward…

      First, the way to move forward is to name the MAIN THREAT.

      Remember the USS Liberty, 1967. Connect the dots.
