This is what we used to call a Freudian slip.. when your subconscious pops out the wrong word and you admit your crimes by mistake.
Maria Dolores, also President of Castilla meant to say ‘lift up the country (sacar)’ and instead said ‘loot and destroy the country’ (saquear.. as in ‘they sacked Troy’.)
It’s the second time she’s done it, and very timely too, because the latest scandal is that Rodrigo Rato, ex IMF President and guru of The ruling PP, is on the list of 705 elite politicians, business leaders and royals accused of stealing countless billions for nearly 40 years, and legalizing their offshore fortunes in a contrived ”fiscal amnesty”.
Rato was actually arrested and spent up to 3 HOURS in symbolic luxury custody. Continue reading “We’ve Worked real hard to Loot the Country” PP general secretary
Spanish police today arrested (so far) 28 more ‘anarchists’, mostly in dawn raids on homes and squat centers across the State, the raids are ”open and ongoing and preventive’.
15 of them are being accused of membership of CAG (Coordinated Anarchist Groups) 10 from Madrid, 2 from Palencia and 3 from Barcelona, the other 13 are arrested for ‘Resisting Authority’. The police found a manifesto of CAG on the Internet which approves of sabotage, and that’s enough to convict anyone they say is a member.
In immediate response over 2000 marched in Madrid, yelling ‘I too am an Anarchist’. In Barcelona four demos met up at the house of one arrested, making at least 1000.
In the Occupied Social Centers the police reported finding ‘small amounts of marijuana, a scales for weighing drugs, copious literature (they have libraries), a gas bottle’, ….etc.
The national media is trumpeting the guilt of the ‘insurrectional anarchist terrorists’ repeating a load of invented lies, elaborating on the fantasies used after vthe recent Operation Pandora’, when 7 ‘anarchists’ were arrested on similar charges, now out on bail.

The ‘Expropriated Bank’ is one of 7 occupied social centers in ex banks in and around Barcelona. Though long overdue for eviction the State has hesitated, perhaps a bit nervous after failing to evict Can Vies last year due to huge solidarity.
Maybe they don’t want to coincide with widespread public anger at the jailing of 7 activists for being anarchists. (Mass Demos vs. Gag law and Arrest of Anarchists)
Perhaps they wish to avoid more opposition to their corrupt banks which have presided over the eviction of up to half a million people to balance their crooked books.
Whatever the reason the ‘Expropriated Bank’ in Gracia barrio is still going strong. Here’s a translation of their latest communiqué….. Continue reading The Expropriated Bank: Communiqué as Eviction Delayed Again.
