The latest short documentary in the Global Uprisings series explores ongoing resistance and self-organization in the midst of the crisis in Spain.

As social conditions continue to deteriorate across Spain, people have been turning to the streets and to each other to find solutions to the crisis. This film tells the story of the massive mobilization that saw millions of people converge on Madrid on March 22, 2014; the story of the proliferation of social centers, community gardens, self-organized food banks; and the story of large-scale housing occupations by and for families that have been evicted. The film pieces together many of the creative ways that people have been coping with crisis and asks what the future may hold for Spain.

Filmed and edited in March/April 2014, it is part of the Global Uprisings documentary series. View more at globaluprisings.org.

Scientists discover why honey is still the best antibiotic

by L.J. Devon, Staff Writer

(NaturalNews) Conventional antibiotics are overprescribed and overconsumed. They are given out like parade candy, tossed out to anyone waving their hands. 2010 data obtained by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) show that a whopping 833 antibiotic prescriptions are handed out on average per every 1,000 people.

Conventional antibiotics make users sicker in the long run

Doctors carelessly prescribe antibiotics for viral infections, which is useless since antibiotics are only effective for breaking up bacterial infections. To make matters worse, overprescription and overconsumption make future infections harder to fight, since antibiotics deplete the good bacteria in the gut.

In this medical travesty, antibiotic-resistant bacteria are rising up, adapting to the singular mode of action that the prescription antibiotics lean on. The CDC has recently identified 20 resistant strains of…

The Solidarity Economy as a Strategy for Revolution

reblogged with thanks from:   http://www.corfizz.com/story.html

money free revolution

There are three roads to revolution. Some focus on seizing state power, others on revolutionary expropriation. The third strategy is to think seriously about how we would actually like to organise our lives and then to start putting these ideas into practice, constructing the new world directly, as a parallel alternative to capitalism.

Let’s be clear that the solidarity economy already exists and people are already fully engaged in the approach that I am describing. I am not messianically opening a new revolutionary pathway; I am merely reporting on a fruitful line of action, introducing it to newcomers, as well as offering some ideas about how it could develop to those who are interested.

Historical occupation of more than 50 BBVA bank offices to demand the withdrawal of the eviction notices
more ‘occupied banks’ news here :  http://wp.me/pIJl9-5l6si se puede.

The head offices have  already been occuped and paralysed for 18 days, with judges sseveral times refusing to sign eviction orders. Then on a Monday morning by surprise no less than 55 banks of BBVA  were occupied and paralysed. This is shaping up to be a mass citizens expropriation of  THE NEAR HALF A MILLION evicted homes now held by the banks and being sold off to speculators

UPDATE

VICTORY. next morning the BBVA bank gave in and promised none of the guarantors  in Sabadell will be evicted to pay odious mortgage debts. Many other cases will follow this precedent. THIS IS HOW TO WIN!!…However news of the victory  was hardly mentioned in the commercial media.

La victoria de la PAH de Sabadell, y la presión ejercida estos días ha provocado también que el banco esté intentando comunicarse con interlocutores otros PAHs para informar sobre la voluntad de resolver otros casos que también estaban muy encallados: la victoria, por tanto, trasciende los casos de la PAH de Sabadell.
