Spanish conservatives head for power by default

Spanish conservatives head for power by default | Idignados, 15M, #OWS | Scoop.it
Six months ago, inspired by the Arab spring, a movement sprang up in Spain seemingly from nowhere. Its name and demand were one and the same: Real Democracy Now!

Spanish people, the young in particular, kicked aside their habitual apathy and fatalism, dubbed themselves los indignados, took to the streets in their tens of thousands, camped in city squares and led others from Paris to New York to follow their example.

Spain has not known political fervour like this since the end of the Franco dictatorship 36 years ago.

"The paradox is that the conservatives are on course for an historic overall majority at a time when socialist and communitarian politics are once again in fashion, stirred up by the indignados.

However, the socialist mainstream has not been able to benefit from this leftwing sentiment. Socialist politicians and trade union officials have not been welcome at indignado marches and encampments."

Politicians and central bankers support worldwide anti-bank-movement
Financial Times Deutschland’s front page story says there are an increasing number of top politicians who show support of the worldwide movement against banks. The paper quotes commission president José Manuel Barroso, who came out in support of the demonstrators. Mario Draghi was clearly sympathetic. “Even we are upset about the crisis and we should imagine how it is if one is 20 or 30 years old and one has no perspective in life”, he said at the margins of the G20 meeting in Paris. There were roughly 5000 demonstrators outside the ECB headquarter in Frankfurt on Saturday 15Oct. Timothy Geithner said that the Occupy-Wall-Street-Protesters in the US showed that people wanted Washington to do something to improve their situation. Also Wolfgang Schäuble voiced support warning that a failure of the current efforts to reform the rules for international finance would undermine “the credibility” of the system. An unnamed top central banker said: “The worldwide extension of the protests shows that the legitimacy of our economic system is at stake.”
In the German domestic debate there is a cross party consensus emerging from the liberal FDP to SPD that regulation of banks needs to be much tougher than thought until now. Talking to Der Spiegel SPD party chairman Sigmar Gabriel asked to split off the investment banking activities from retail activities. FDP parliamentary group chief Rainer Brüderle warned the banks in an interview with Bild: “If they don’t do their homework we will take them on their hands and guide them.”

En el último y muy reciente informe del CIS, el señor Rubalcaba figura con tanto descrédito o más que el señor Rajoy en todas las cuestiones preguntadas. Porque efectivamente son ustedes la marca blanca del PP, y negra de toda la demás izquierda. Es decir, son ustedes un iceberg flotante, una reliquia.

Right now, the campaign against OWS basically tries to get working Americans to turn on the movement, even though most people support the movement’s goals, by trying to make it seem as if the protestors are people not like you — whereas the plutocrats are. Hey, this has worked many times in the past; that’s the whole point of “What’s the matter with Kansas.” And it can operate in many directions: OWS should be shunned because they’re dirty hippies, Elizabeth Warren is not-like-you because, horrors, she’s a Harvard professor.
