All over Spain, people are protesting about their politicians and what the bankers have created.  The following is their manifesto.  If only the lily livered Brits who let their politicians screw them time after time, were as aware and brave:

We are ordinary people. We are like you: people, who get up every morning to study, work or find a job, people who have family and friends. People, who work hard every day to provide a better future for those around us.
Some of us consider ourselves progressive, others conservative. Some of us are believers, some not. Some of us have clearly defined ideologies, others are apolitical, but we are all concerned and angry about the political, economic, and social outlook which we see around us: corruption among politicians, businessmen, bankers, leaving us helpless, without a voice.
This situation has become normal, a daily suffering, without hope. But if we join forces, we can change it. It’s time to change things, time to build a better society together. Therefore, we strongly argue that:
  • The priorities of any advanced society must be equality, progress, solidarity, freedom of culture, sustainability and development, welfare and people’s happiness.
  • These are inalienable truths that we should abide by in our society: the right to housing, employment, culture, health, education, political participation, free personal development, and consumer rights for a healthy and happy life.
  • The current status of our government and economic system does not take care of these rights, and in many ways is an obstacle to human progress.
  • Democracy belongs to the people (demos = people, krátos = government) which means that government is made of every one of us. However, in Spain most of the political class does not even listen to us. Politicians should be bringing our voice to the institutions, facilitating the political participation of citizens through direct channels that provide the greatest benefit to the wider society, not to get rich and prosper at our expense, attending only to the dictatorship of major economic powers and holding them in power through a bipartidism headed by the immovable acronym PP & PSOE.
  • Lust for power and its accumulation in only a few; create inequality, tension and injustice, which leads to violence, which we reject. The obsolete and unnatural economic model fuels the social machinery in a growing spiral that consumes itself by enriching a few and sends into poverty the rest. Until the collapse.
  • The will and purpose of the current system is the accumulation of money, not regarding efficiency and the welfare of society. Wasting resources, destroying the planet, creating unemployment and unhappy consumers.
  • Citizens are the gears of a machine designed to enrich a minority which does not regard our needs. We are anonymous, but without us none of this would exist, because we move the world.
  • If as a society we learn to not trust our future to an abstract economy, which never returns benefits for the most, we can eliminate the abuse that we are all suffering.
  • We need an ethical revolution. Instead of placing money above human beings, we shall put it back to our service. We are people, not products. I am not a product of what I buy, why I buy and who I buy from.
For all of the above, I am outraged.
I think I can change it.
I think I can help.
I know that together we can.I think I can help.
I know that together we can.

I am sure you are not "lily livered", so what are you doing about it?

The UK media are doing a good job of keeping the unrest pretty quite...

Trouble is that most Brits would much rather go down the pub for a pint and a good moan...

Hi Paul, welcome to the blog. I will do anything I can to change this society for the better and I am not a person I would consider to be a socialist, instead I want to see fairness and my politicians closer to the people, where they can be controlled and made to work for US not for themselves.

The media are controlled by big business in the form of the Rothschilds and their cronies. I don't want to be accused of being anti-semetic, but the influence of the Jewish fraternity in politics, media and life in general is way above what their influence should be. That is why the media in Britain, is strictly controlled, but unfortunately the British people are too fucking stupid to realise it. But, they'll be able to tell you who won 'Big Brother', 3 years ago and who they're married to now.

Greekers, I suppose that's what comes of never having a revolution like the French and arse licking the Establishment. It makes me sick to the pit of my stomach!

Hi, nice to be here.

I am planning on visiting the local 'action'.

On the first issue, I see no reason public sector should be *better off* than private sector who have to finance it!

But as the whole thing is a Euro directive and I object to our government taking orders from anyone other than the electorate - I can comfortably oppose it all...

But I will also oppose any lawlessness, so it better be peaceable.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Paul, re: my blogpost on Wednesday. The debt crisis brought about by the banks is being used to roll back hard fought and won workers' rights, IMO and that is not right. Let those that caused it pay for it and that means the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers. So let the countries default and let's see what happens. The Euro is an experiment that hasn't worked. Greece and Ireland didn't meet the criteria for entry but were brought in for reasons of political expediency by France and Germany, so let them pay. As the central banks of all European countries, apart from Latvia plus the American Fed are controlled and financed by our friends who like kicking the shit out of the Arabs, let them go bust and we can start again. I can did up my patio and plant some potatoes!

The trouble with this country is that the gvernments have got the people to buy into the debt nonsense more than most other countries. The vast majority of our population no have mortgages and dizzy amounts of personal debt - the exact opposite of these other countries.

So people are too scared to do anything now in case they lose everything. The way things are going they will anyhow but as you have said before DL they cannot see past Big Brother etc to see what is going on.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Billy, I suppose the debt problem in this country makes the situation worse. My wife has a credit card with a few thousand on it that we have only been paying the minimum to for ages and they have just told her that they are putting her credit limit up to £13,500 and increase of over £2000. How the fuck do they justify that?

Dark Lochnagar said...

Banned, I don't see anything wrong with any of that. We in this country are too tied up in the 'American' dream of working like fuck 7 days a week, so we can get a week on the Costas with our kids once a year. There is more to life than work! In Spain, the Supermarkets don't open on a Sunday and neither do the other shops meaning that families can spend time together. they don't have huge out of town malls with huge global chains squeezing the life out of town centres and the wee man wanting to make a living from his shop for his family. Do you know how overwhelming it is to put everything into a business venture to see it fail because you can't compete with Tescos who start selling Funerals or flowers or fish or papers or fags or beer. How many chains of off licences do you see now. Fuck all! And don't give me this convenience crap. Other countries seem to survive without shops open 24/7 ruining the culture of the country. Only in Britain and America do we bow down to these global cunts who are taking over the planet.

@ Dark Lochnagar - You have it SPOT ON mate; so what if there is a slight increase in the cost of certain items; community shops are usually better products - I always preferred a local butcher to the supermarket junk .. Also local shops used to employ "errand boys" this could be reintroduced with businesses allowed to write this off as expenses with a myriad of paperwork (the money will go back into the system and tax will be paid on it elsewhere) ... Supermaket shopping and cheap mega malls are killing the UK and the economy since the profits go elsewhere or to a few CEO's or shareholders (who may be foreign) .. the money is taken out of the UK ecomony altogether or it is filters back in less quickly.


Dark Lochnagar said...

Maverick, RANT AND PISS AWAY! that's what the blog's for. For fuck's sake don't start me on Tescos or we'll be here all day.

The British people are too fucking stupid to realise that this 24/7 American pish is killing our culture and way of life. Everyone is rushing about working God knows how many hours to try and make ends meet while Global companies are creaming off the profits. Fuck me! I'm beginning to sound like a Socialist!
