Class Warfare / July 11, 2012

We just got this brutal video from an eXiled reader in Spain (HT: Àngel): Spanish riot police savagely attacking anti-austerity protesters in Madrid, without any apparent provocation. So far, the number of injured is at least 76 and growing, according to Àngel. The protests were fueled by today’s announcement of the largest austerity cuts in Spain since the days of fascist dictator General Franco—meaning the bankers are going in for the kill in Spain, despite false PR reports of bankers easing up on their demands.

Here is what class warfare looks like today in Spain:

The protests, led by the miners who marched 450 kilometers over the past 2-1/2 weeks to reach Madrid, come as Spain announced another $80 billion in budget cuts to keep the bankers fed, as well as huge cuts in the mining sector that will mean thousands more layoffs.

Here is another photo of a young Spanish woman brutally beaten by the banksters’ Austerity Gestapo. Her crime: exercising her right to protest against banker enslavement.

 

UPDATED: More photo links coming in.

Here is a link to an excellent photo slideshow of the miners’ arrival from their 2-1/2 week “Marcha Negra” into Madrid last night, and a sample photo:

And here’s a link to a photo slideshow of today’s protests, with a couple of sample photos here:

And one more in case you’re too lazy to click:

    From Syria to Spain it’s all the same, man in charge feeling large and standing with the club ready to rub your nose in a pile of do it now because I said so bitch.

    Nothing left to do but bust a nut and laugh in their faces because the future generation will take their places.

    @ 47:

    Oh, as I recall the rape happens in the first few chapters and the rest of the book is the heroine rationalizing her love of the rapist. Boilerplate romance novel. So what you should have said is “there are romance novels that are much sexier than a 700-page sales pitch for sociopathy as a virtue available at the library.”

    The improving here is out of hand, and I love it! I’ve been a fan of the exile/exiled for years. My initial draw was the exhiliratng descripiton of the free expat life style for U.S. males. But the improving of my pathetic man-o-sphere self makes me love the exiled even more. Now, if I comment on anything remotely not PC misandry-ish, my post is improved. Praised be the AEC!

    Truth is the system is failed and in Spain people are begining to realise.
    Dont try to divide the common German worker and the common Spanish one because they are the same shit. The caricaturization of the spanish being lazy makes me laugh, you should come to work to Spain a few years u gonna know what lazyness is.
    We both (german shits and spanish shits) pay the awsome life of the elites.
    Time to sharpen those guillotines, get the French to do so their ancestors did it quite well.
    Only problem is the revolution must be global, one country alone cant do it.

    All those idiots barking about “spanish parasites sucking german money” should realize that the main reason why the EU is shutting down the spanish coal mines, is to make room in the market for lower-quality german coal.

    Since Spain was admmited in the EU back in 1986, the policy has always be the same: The EU gives Spain big handouts of money, in exchange for dismanteling Spain’s industrial base and production infrastructure, and slowly turning her into a big, sunny and cheap theme park where northen european wage-slave workers can feel like kings for a month.

    The people of Asturias is particulary aware of the scam, since the EU already forced the destruction of the asturian Dairy Farming industry back in the 90’s, and now they have moved in to kill coal mining, the other big economic base of the region.

    Fuck austerity.

    Damn… a hatchet-face like that looks sexy as hell to me, especially because I’m an apoca-bagger sitting in my mom’s basement stocking up on freeze dried food.

    Could you guys post the direct link with your YouTube embeds? Playing the vids on your pages always seems to take ten times as long, if they play at all.
    thx

    Hey, you “Dammerung”, who’s retiring at 50 on the backs of german working class? Retirement in Spain is at 65 and in few years it will be at 67.
    And who are the parasites protesting for more german money? They are protesting for a JOB! They want to WORK!
    In the end, you stupid blind german nationalists, what do you exactly want spanish people to do? What are your plans for Spain?
    I can answer you: you have no plan. You don’t want us to have industry, you don’t want us to have agriculture, you don’t want us to have a job and you don’t want us to be parasites… so what? what are we supposed to do? Just disappear?”

    Meteo I cite your whole text to show the context of my comment. Some German commentators just reflect the propaganda of the German Government. These morons are uninformed and have no idea on the situation in the bancrupted states in Europe. These guys are the servicable idiots policians need to drive wedges between the European peoples. So they can send EuroGenForce to slaughter protesting peoples without causing protest anywhere against such brutal measures. So forget these morons and start to communicate and send information to Germany. Join forums and inform all us Europeans – regardless if we are Germans, Spanish, Italian, French or whatever nationality.
