the news is finally reporting again about Madrid....two days of media black out...I wonder what the hell they are thinking.

There are protests all over Spain now. Nothing violent. I am currently uploading the one from my city as we speak, I will add it as soon as it is done. This morning I was looking for traffic cams or web cams of the streets of Madrid, which were all pointing up or too dirty to see....Yeah....

I came across a site with street cams from all over Spain, there was one from had ALOT of people gathered in protest on the street. I click on the thumbnail, and almost half the cams were down.

The idea that they can just sweep this under the rug is insane. They have missed their opportunity to gear this crisis to their advantage. They first start showing the cops getting whipped, then nothing. They seem to have changed advisors rather abruptly. The German specialists each provincial government has been sent have been a little naive. They are just starting to report again on the nationwide mass protests after 2 days filled with newspaper headlines talking about austerity measures.....front page....GUESS WHAT we know. That is why our capital is under siege.....BY US. Like that will do anything in your favor.....HOLY CRAP YOU ARE DUMB....!Fan the fire why don't you....that will make them go home.....

This is insane. I see no level of competency. The well to do people, are blind as bats, and their advisors are there because of favoritism and relations to those they advise. Spain is so screwed...This is what happens when you give every position of power to your favorites instead of the most talented. The well to do class is still, even today as I write this, obsessed with impressing each other with fashion and BS. They act like the crisis doesn't exist. Their words......

The potential for a fall is so staggering I almost don't believe what I am seeing.

I don't know if it is because I am an American, but have been seeing this for over 2 years now as the start of a Euro war....the likes of which we have never seen. Thanks to all the European union BS, a civil war here, even a small class conflict, will spill into all of western Europe.

Every day we have bigger and bigger protests. Every day people act like they can't see it. This is only the calm before the storm. It has already begun. If Madrid does not go without a perfect run and some show of solidarity from the government, They will lose control of the situation here. They are not prepared and are not willing to even start.

This is the end of Spain as we have known it/ end of Europe as it has known itself. Welcome to the new third world in years to come.

Welcome to the new battlefield....

Only 100,000 protesting and the global media does its best to ignore. The police dress as protesters, instigate fights, which in turn allows them to use rubber bullets. I have heard this tactic is common with large protests.

Hopefully in the future millions will protest, at least those unemployed or underemployed. 25% unemployed of 47 million is around 12 million suffering. 12 million should be on the streets.

The typical conservative wil tell you government has no obligation or even no business at all employing people. It is all up to the employer's and bank's discretion when and were they invest. Lets face it, we live in investment world, don't we?

It is not about families, not about comfort, not about moral/ethical values at all. You are lucky to have a job and then you must work as much as possible for as little as the employer wants. This is the defintion of capitalism, to capitalise on opportunity. The employee is expendable under this system, and the worst the economy gets the less choice they have. Nevermind having childhood dreams, you must forget them. You must be a pathetic "yes sir" sheep to the bourgeois.

The media blackout is because the American media is owned by big corporations, the wealthy elite, and they just don't want Americans to get any idea.

So of course there will be a blackout.

Well i think it's like before the civil war too. Not in a good way.
There's a lot of Anarchist communities, there are a lot of Old school socialist villages, there are right wing Town councils and the Guardia civil have not gone away.

I hope the people have learned from experience.

Remember this guy?

The bar owner who confronted the police?


Well here he is getting beaten and arrested yesterday.

Here's a video of the police dragging people out of pubs and bars and beating them.

Well looks like the media black out in not help their case. Who ever is pulling the strings is digging a deep hole trying to cover up the protests.

Dark times ahead.

Here are the Local police, the National Police and the firemen protesting about crappy wages on the 28th september.

What's the point of protesting? We all know the outcome. In the end, the protestors will get tired and go home. Business as usual, the rich laugh while the rest fight each other in the name of country, race, god, and whatnot. Same old story, recycled since 3000 bc.

more and more people have no homes to go to. i've just started building a wooden kit house for a TEACHER with 3 kids who now cannot afford to pay rent and childcare when she's at work.
Im not charging any money and we expect the ever vigilant local police to come round and say it's illegal.

yeah that's what happened when George Washington decided to protest.

I don't no why people are treated like this in every corrupted country, the ruling government behaves like dictator.

The government is probably dragging it out so that it dies out on its own. Working citizens are not able to protest for long periods of time and they know this. Anyone with a job would have a hard time protesting longer than thirty day ((a lot of the time in the current it’s economy even less)).

Protesting is a double edge sword for the protesters. Sure there is a chance their voices might get heard and a change made. But they also run the chance of losing their job and getting beaten by the police. Problem is the ways the current governments are set up they see no need to hear our argument. They can just wait out the protesters, with little to no risk to their positions.
