2. Yes, the social movements in Spain are a force to behold AND a force for good

There have been confrontations with police, but in comparison to the protests' size, very very limited.

The PAH now even have judges on their side, a report came out of how judges were trying to work out a strategy to DO delay evictions in the absence of a changed law.

There are also policemen and for example locksmiths that are refusing to cooperate.

I have a half decent excuse to go there and witness the grassroots, with a nephew there (who ran a construction company and now relies on his mom for financial support, having gone broke). I think I'll go and do a report or something.

The other bit I like about the Occupy movement in the US is OccupyTheSec, with lawsuits against the too slow impleme,ntation of Dodd-Frank. That's a point where the Indignados are not visible, or at least not that I know of.

Thanks for your reply, the kick and the rec!
