Meanwhile in Spain…

without comments

Meanwhile in Spain, people don’t seem to get that Europe is once again saved… Oh those silly Spaniards.

As Spain announces more austerity, the country has erupted in violence. This report, which dives into the heart of the violent protests, reveals a shockingly deep divide between government and people.

“The government is trying to scare the people,” one protester says, following the government’s dubbing of a protest outside the congress as a possible coup d’etat. It ramped up the already tense mood among a people that blame the right wing government for Spain’s economic problems. As protesters refuse to leave and sit down in non-violent protest, the police break off into small groups and chase them down. “The police started to charge indiscriminately toward anyone. We are returning to fascist repression.” Rubber bullets and bricks fly back and forth in street exchanges of a shocking intensity. “We are not animals! We are people!”, one woman pleads with the police. But the police don’t wait long before storming down the streets, shooting rubber bullets at close range into fleeing crowds. The streets may be clear for now, but as the crisis in Spain deepens with no end in sight, popular resistance towards the government and it’s austerity project is only intensifying.

Foreign Office: Prepare for riots in euro collapse

without comments

According to The Telegraph British embassies in the eurozone have been told to draw up plans to help British expats through the collapse of the single currency, amid new fears for Italy and Spain.

Diplomats are preparing to help Britons abroad through a banking collapse and even riots arising from the debt crisis.

The Treasury confirmed earlier this month that contingency planning for a collapse is now under way.

A senior minister has now revealed the extent of the Government’s concern, saying that Britain is now planning on the basis that a euro collapse is now just a matter of time.

“It’s in our interests that they keep playing for time because that gives us more time to prepare,” the minister told the Daily Telegraph.

Yeah, that sure sounds like “fun”…
