The Spanish Revolution: Continua

Good report from Spain on the continued attempts to ransack the common wealth and force the people to pay for the crisis through austerity measures, as well as the continuing refusal of so many Spaniards to accept it as inevitable.  Take the Square is in general a good English language source for keeping up to date on the ongoing struggle in Spain (and elsewhere).


Que se jodan ellos

Good update from Carlos Delclós on the emerging mood of pitched struggle between the austerity agenda and the people in Spain.  I am not sure a shift from que se vayan todos (get rid of them all) to que se jodan ellos (no, fuck them) all that great a change, since both utterly reject the current government as lackeys of international financial interests.  But it certainly seems like Andrea Fabra’s incendiary speech act has been taken by the indignados to mean that the forces of austerity intend to dig in their heels, and that we may be in for a very ugly fight in the months ahead.
