Meanwhile in Spain, the World's first Holographic protest has taken place against the introduction of new draconian measures to prevent people from protesting against the Government.



How has a member country of the E.U been allowed to introduce these laws, without contravening the Human Rights of its citizens?




The draconian law, which was passed in the lower house of parliament in December, gives sweeping powers to the authorities. It makes it illegal to protest outside government buildings, insult police officers or refuse to show identification documents. On top of that, there's also a €600 fine for showing a lack of respect to anyone in uniform, while the photographing or filming of police officers, where they could be put in danger, will incur a €30,000 fine


Coming to your country any day soon?

Now that is a very creative solution to totalitarian nonsense.

I am sure they are working on holographic riot police as we speak.

Well V for Vendetta pretty much shows the future of Europe, the rise of Neo Fascists in Europe. Just look at France with Front National and Spain with the law they just introduced.

Sooner or later we will hear this slogan "Strength Through Unity, Unity through Faith."

I wouldn't have thought so as Spain relies heavily on tourism. I appreciate they have been put through the wringer of late and there have been lots of protests, but this does allude to fascist tendencies.

The law also protects the banking systems though and prevents people protesting any banking establishment.

Coming soon to a Country near you.

The US is salivating over how fast they can get there and Canada will follow like the little puppy it is. And that's only this little side of the Globe.

Then...The World.

One of the coolest things I have ever seen.......Bravo Spain. When laws like this are put on the books the masters are getting nervous.

I don't see the benefit. Real people, real protest is what they need.

They're not allowed to protest anymore, that's the point.

However, if every citizen decided enough was enough and came out onto the streets to protest, then the Government wouldn't stand a chance surely?

Yes. they need to ignore their draconian government. They have nothing to lose now , no food, no job, nothing.

Without my glasses I thought you said "a return to Fresno", which is the 2nd armpit capital of CA.

Sure hope Franco isn't back!

TPTB are smart that is why they make laws like this. The average person can not afford being arrested or afford paying heavy fine. This is the root reason why citizens never really speak out in mass until things are so bad it does not matter anymore.



Side note.....It is also the reason why the founders of the US put such safety nets for protest into the constitution. They new this simple truth 300 years ago.

So... where are all the holographic riot police? Somebody's got to virtually stop this!

This is why I think Spain will be where the powder keg goes off. The leaders are dangerously disconnected from reality and seem to like retarded heavy handed tactics. The people enjoyed and are used to a HIGH level of freedom and democracy. They are very resourceful and VERY passionate. There are still people who opposed the Franco regime alive and well (took up arms).

There are still people around who MADE the democratic government who are alive and well. They were not scared of reprisals under a DICTATORSHIP when it mattered and now are only more skilled in their crafts as leaders. Replace them, kill them even..... millions will take their place. Its culture not individuals.

You might as well just kill off all of Spain off or start to listen. Dont miss ONE, or dont ignore even ONE.

The mix is unbelievably dangerous for Europe.

If I were Berlin I would make a special case for reduced austerity. When Spain explodes Europe will.

In the days of Franco, being on a beach after dark could get you shot on sight. Invasion paranoia.

Why people had to be on the beach at night in the days of Franco?

I believe that too. Just wait until they start to put restrictions on spanish immigration to other countries. They'll have to stand and fight.

a reply to: Trueman They didn't have to be on the beach. If they were on the beach, they had to make sure they were off by sundown. No evening beach parties, lover's trysts, night fishing, etc. Everyone knew the law but some still found themselves dead.
