a Spanish youth accosted in Madrid by Franco’s police
Those who think that the Spanish Civil War is over should think again.
The Labour Government which is in power in Spain (called PSOE) ended the protest of youth in a central square or “plaza” of Madrid yesterday morning
Labour (PSOE) used the technology of the state to throw out the youth and to scrap their tents and belongings. This was following the wishes of the Spanish “bourgeoisie” because the protest was interfering with their business, they said.
The weak leadership given to the youth by the leaders of the “indignadoes” (Indignant or Angry) is also a big factor here.
What is happening is that not just Spanish but European Capitalism is in a very deep crisis and it cannot come out of this crisis easily
Hence the great danger of Fascism (a return to the times of Franco or some similar alternative) and just downright police repression
The picture above is quite revealing because the youth is obviously being harassed and is being asked for his identification. Everybody in Spain tends to carry identification and they see nothing unusual in that, but it is part of Francoist conditioning
There is no question but that Rajoy, leader of Franco’sParty, the PP, is going to return to power in the coming November election
The youth ain’t seen nothing yet! Unemployment among youth veers towards 50 per cent.
