Protests Redux: Spanish unions plan general strike after more mass rallies

Source: RT

Spanish labor unions have threatened a national strike unless the country’s right-wing government cancels announced austerity cuts, in the wake of a second day of national mass protests.

Some 60,000 demonstrators flooded the center of Madrid, during the biggest of more than 50 union-backed protests across the country.

2. They have 25% unemployment in Spain.

Here's hoping the rest of the world doesn't get to that point. But there should be more anger around the world about all this. The elites of the world have failed, continue to fail, and yet are being tolerated to an unfortunate degree.
