We continue to be in awe, of the spirit of direct action by our anarchist comrades in Greece.
The fascist political party L.E.P.E.N. was gearing up to open its doors on September 18th, the same day that Antifa rapper Killah P was murdered by neo-nazis. A large crew of Antifa comrades went to the new L.E.P.E.N. HQ and demolished it.
This was followed up, by a clean-up of Exarhia Square. Comrades crewed up and kicked out drug dealers, out of this historically anarchist neighborhood.

Barter has become the new alternative for Venezuelans suffering the ravages of the economic war. The system, which has existed since time immemorial, gaining strength in the South American country with unique features is strongly mediated by social networks.
Falling oil prices since last year has resulted in shortages of foreign exchange for the mono-exporting country. This along with the long campaign of boycott and sabotage from the USA, and the determined resistance of the deposed oligarchy articulated through the upper middle class, has led to hyperinflation and economic disaster.

The Bank of Spain has acknowledged this week that, so far, it has only recovered 5% of the 51,303,000,000 euros the State ”lent” the Spanish banks to make them profitable again. Now the agency has admitted to El Pais that in total at least 38,012 million is ‘lost forever’, even though the government promised repeatedly that citizens wouldn’t have to pay for the crisis.
Not only has the public forked out 38 billion to prop up corrupt crony banks but the state could only avoid intervention by putting it in the sacred Spanish Constitution that interest and loan repayments must come before ALL OTHER payments.
So Spain is a now Cash Cow forever.
At least until Capitalism collapses. Despite low or even negative interest rates each Spanish person pays 721 euros each year in interest on the public debt.
The public have to pay, it’s in the Constitution.
As in Greece, Spanish debt is a safe bet for the ECB, the big Banks and the portfolios of the ‘investment funds’ that prop up the already rich around the world. Continue reading Spain: Banks steal 38 Billion while Public pay 721 Euros a Year each in Interest
