Financial crisis sparks unrest in Europe


www.alertnet.org

Feb 26 (Reuters) - Thousands of Opel workers from around Germany took part in a mass rally on Thursday demanding parent General Motors scrap plans for plant closures in Europe.

In Sweden unions and the Social Democrat party planned a protest "For Jobs" later on Thursday at a Saab plant in Trollhattan.

The global financial and economic crisis has sparked many protests in parts of Europe. Here are some details:

The riots and demonstrations in Europe are only a preview of whats to come here across the pond.

The difference being here that people won't demonstrate or riot until they are extremely desperate. This means the unrest that will take place here will be much more violent and radical when it arrives.

It would be a good idea to keep an eye on the unrest over there and learn how to prepare from it. Its only a matter of time before unrest begins here.

Europe is on a downward spiral fast, how much longer before the U.S follows with mass protest?

David Icke Newsletter Preview

PLEASE DON'T RIOT ...

… IT'S JUST WHAT 'THEY' WANT

'What you fight, you become.' - David Icke

The David Icke Newsletter goes out on Sunday with a major 5,000-word background article to the economic crisis and how to avoid the traps that have been set for us.

The global economic collapse is designed to trigger a stream of 'benefits' to the Illuminati agenda. One, as I said in a recent newsletter, is to use this as an excuse to impose a global economic dictatorship controlled by a world central bank. But there are many other 'solutions' and connected 'benefits' that are planned to be exploited and we need to be streetwise to them.

The one I want to emphasise here is the need to stay calm and react peacefully to what is happening. This is not easy when there is so much stress and fear around with regard to the economic present and 'future', but we need to do it all the same or we will walk straight into a massive trap that has been set for us.

Let's get this straight: They want you to riot in response to the unfolding economic catastrophe and we are already seeing people falling for this.

Why would the authorities want people to riot? Readers of my books over the years will see the answer immediately. They want an excuse to bring in a fully-fledged Police State all over the world and people who riot in their desperation (instigated invariably by agent-provocateurs) are just the excuse they are looking for.

Be very, very aware of anyone who starts rioting, or encourages others to do so, amid peaceful demonstrations. Who are they and why are they doing this when it is handing all the aces to the system to impose a Police State? They are either stupid or agents of that State.

I have been stressing this point about the plan to stir up civil unrest and rioting whenever I can and now the insiders are beginning to put that thought into the public mind. 'There could be riots' is designed to communicate the theme subliminally of 'go out and riot'. It is the simple power of suggestion masquerading as 'concern'.

'The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.'

Martin Luther King

Europe is on a downward spiral fast



Yet another generalized ATS comment stemmed from an ignorant perception of Europe.. So which part of Europe is supposedly on this magical downward spiral?


The Continent of a billion people across 40 odd countries?
You cant lump this all into one category, dozens of different languages, economies, living standards and ethnic groups. Some countries are weathering the storm well, others not so well.

The 27 countries and 550 million people in the EU?
A couple of countries are in a deep recession.. thats it. Outlook is good for this time next year.

The 18 odd countries in the Eurozone?
The EURO is currently the most robust large currency on the planet.

The Ex soviet union nations?
These are being hit hard because they are still developing their infrastructure after a raping by the USSR.

The non EU countries?
These are separate from each other and the EU.. ie Iceland, Croatia, Ukraine etc etc etc


Which is it?

A few protests by disgruntled employees in Germany and some Demonstrations in Ireland and Finland doesn't mean anything other than the fact that there is a global credit crises causing problems.

Many countries in Europe are being hit hard.
Two Governments have already collapsed: Iceland and Latvia.
Hungary's currency is falling fast along with other countries there as well.
So dont say the continent is not in trouble because it is.

In Europe they are rioting in the streets. In Asia, those people don't know what to do. They are already borderline poverty and now the orders for product are at a standstill as people across the globe aren't making purchases.

I heard a bit on NPR the other day about an underwear factory in China. They used to produce like 100,000 pieces a day for Walmart and Target and a couple other stores and now it is down to something like 10,000 pieces a day, overnight hundreds of them lost their job and this is just ONE factory. Scary.

Add that to the factor of civilian gun ownership in the US and you have one scary scenario!

Yes, but many are not in trouble so don't say they are in trouble when they are not.

How do you classify the European continent?

Its like saying the North America is a lawless, third world country because Mexico is having problems.

Also, governments collapse all the time!! Belgium didn't have a government for most of the past two years.

All this is being sensationalized now because people only want to see the worst in everything.

Do any of you believe the US govt. will really confiscate guns or start to prohibit the sale of ammunition? If so, how soon do you think this could begin?

I agree with Dermo,
I live in Germany and so far the protests are very small and friendly to what is to come, just Opel employees afraid of loosing their jobs and trying to voice up against it. Except the case of Opel Germany is still stable and doing good so far. And in general, the real deal will start in the US and not in Europe, not the other way around.
