Austerity will be implemented in every European nation, even Germany.

Yeah, for the poorest.

The so-called austerity cuts have already been implemented in many countries across Europe starting in 2010 and protests have been occurring in various countries across the EU since 2010. Quite a few have been ongoing.

2010 anti-austerity protests:

Look at all the SHTF threads, videos, and pictures while listening to this song.

It's all coming down indeed.

The descent will be slow to reach my neck of the woods I'd imagine,
but I'd just as soon get this civil unrest BS over with so we can get on with
solving our society's problems.
I'd have to say, given our history with this #,
people will probably forget all about in in a few months.
I'd think it'd be a good thing if we start to see more like these
to get the ball rolling, but I guess time will tell.
There was Egypt, but yeah that tapered.

You'd just think Americans would be furious, but no,
they have pizza and basic cable.
Honestly it scares me #less that people call me smart,
because it reminds me how oblivious the average person is.
I mean even sheep would have a better instinct for danger.

4.5 billion years of evolution on this planet and they still don't
understand that power corrupts, and paper money is just passing the buck.
Ok rant finished.
Sorry about that.

Ohhh bad judgement on the cops part.

I predict that a lot of police homes in that country are going to go up in flames and the firefighters won't get near the home for fear of their own safety and just let them burn.

Firefighting is a true skill and I don't think a lot of cops have it.

Firefighters show true courage, they will burn to death looking for someone still in a building, Cops will kill because they 'might' be in danger. Do you really think Kelly Thomas or David Silva deserved to be beaten to death by cops who killed them for sport.

You know, when you put this in a global context with other headlines from the last 9 days...

*Mass riots in Sweden over immigration reform.

*Huge anti-gay Protest in France

*10,000 rioters have descended on Gezi Park in Istanbul...
...attempt to stop police from demolishing city's treasured park...

*Hundreds of stone-throwing protesters besieged a Canadian gold mine in Kyrgyzstan on Friday.

*Turkey Fights with Tear gas- arrests anti-government protesters.

*Blockupy Activists Start Protest Action in Frankfurt, Germany.


One has to wonder.

One of the things governments should realize is that you don't piss-off the people whose job it is to save your life in case of an emergency.

Nah..Firefighters don't matter. If a building burns down, then there's opportunity to rebuild. Jobs are created. Firefighters prevent new jobs and new work by preventing the destruction that would normally provide new opportunities. Cut firefighter services. They do less good for the economy that you think.

Never thought of it that way... Maybe if enough people die in these fires, I'll be able to find a job too!
I just might have to take my gas can down to the gas station for a fill up.

What? I cut grass for a living because, as I just told you, I don't have a real job... Lawn mowers require gasoline...

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

Good luck. Sheeple are lead straight to the slaughter, nothing we can do to make them overstand.

I will tell you all one thing, that is if this happened in our neck of the woods we would certainly be concerned to say the least.

Our Fire boys and our cops are like one of the same.
Up to this point we trust them both with our lives and their judgment in any calls is ok with us.

If this happened here it would cause a major brain fart for both me and the wife........I really don't think we would handle the above situation so well so our sympathies to the public regarding the above situation.

It is sad that the common people must fight each other. Worker against worker is never good. They should unite and protect both their jobs. Sadly, the police are more useful to the political class than the firefighters so the firemen get the axe and the police come with the stick.

If I was the police in Spain, I'd say the firefighters are already on the scene, it is a controlled burn, no further action required.

How much longer will people be protesting/debating these issues, instead of replacing their governmental/social/economic structures? Part of the fault lies with the tolerant civil population.

The pictures just represent mankind. It's always been this way, and it always will. People fighting other people... A few people at the top pulling strings.

You guys are jumping the gun!

Firefighters and Police battle it out every year here in Ohio!!!

In a football game :p

I completely agree. I am in SW France and it's clearly evident.

Government employees who ONLY do as little as is needed to get by. Paper pushing and passing the buck helps other employees and the circle continues.

Bureaucracy gone mad and in my opinion, the bubble is well overdue to burst and needs to.

Try starting a small business in France and you soon find out about the great divide between the public and private sector.

VIVE LA REVOLUTION! and I DON'T mean civil servants pushing for shorter hours, bigger pensions or more holidays, I mean BRING BACK THE GUILLOTINE and start at the top.

Thankfully, the majority of firefighters in France are volanteers and do a fantastic job. Well kitted out and incredibly professional. Don't call an ambulance, call the "Pompiers", they always have a paramedic at hand. I'm sure it's different in many other European countries where the emergency services are full time employed.
