In Spanien nehmen die Repressionen gegen Demonstranten, die gegen das Spardiktat der Troika und damit auch gegen die von Angela Merkel vorangetriebene Sparpolitik demonstrieren, immer weiter zu. Nach den vielen Prügel-Orgien der spanischen Bereitschaftspolizei und Gesetzesvorschlägen das Filmen und Fotografieren dieser prügelnden Polizisten zu verbieten, folgten Vorschläge das Streikrecht zu beschneiden und das Organisieren von FRIEDLICHEN Demonstrationen unter Strafe zu stellen. Hieraus entwickelt sich nun ein Justizskandal. Seit dem 14. November 2012 sitzt ein 21jähriger im Gefängnis, auf Basis von Aussagen von Polizisten, die der Beschuldigte vehement bestreitet. Seine U-Haft wurde gestern verlängert, obwohl noch nicht einmal ein Polizeibericht vorliegt. Morgen gehen Menschen in ganz Spanien auf die Straße um seine Freilassung zu fordern.

Hier ein Livestream aus Madrid, wo heute Abend (28.12.) für die Freilassung von Alfon demonstriert wird:
Nach den massiven Protesten gegen die Kürzungen und die Korruption in den vergangenen Wochen, sind auch heute wieder viele Menschen auf die Straße gegangen. In Madrid wurde der ehemalige Bankia-Vorstandsvorsitzende Rodrigo Rato vom Gericht vernommen. Tausende Menschen gingen auf die Straße um gegen Bankia zu protestieren. Die Bank hat Milliarden in den Sand gesetzt.
Heute wurde auch noch bekannt, dass 120 Direktoren von verschiedenen Madrilener Kliniken ihre Kündigung eingereicht haben. Sie taten dies aus Protest gegen die angekündigte Privatisierung der Gesundheitsfürsorge.
Hier ein Livestream aus Madrid, wo auch jetzt noch demonstriert wird:
Seit einem Jahr gibt es jetzt die Volxküche “The Ohter Human”. Die Volxküche gibt essen umsonst raus an die, die es brauchen. Auf ihr Geburtstag wird es Heute u.a. ein Konzert geben. Es geht bei dieser Volxküche nicht um Wohlfahrt, sondern um das zusammen Kochen, zusammen essen und zusammen leben.
Wir haben vorhin aus versehen geschrieben dass im Livestream Aktivisten von der Polizei angegriffen werden. Dies war nicht der Fall, es handelte sich um ein Video von 07. Dezember und nicht um den Livestream. Wir entschuldigen und für diesen Fehler.

The official narratives of politicians, governments, and the media no longer hold the same power upon the people. Conspiracy theories abound. But aren't governments technically conspiracies?
