Six days of protests in Spain

As I was putting this together I was amazed to hear it being reported on BBC News24. Are the msm beginning to report fully on the large-scale demos in Spain, Greece, Portugal?  The Guardian published a short article yesterday but beyond that I haven’t seen much.

With local & regional elections due on Sunday the High Court has upheld an electoral board ruling that protests are banned today but it hasn’t had any impact on the demonstrators who are turning out in their thousands at large cities across the country. Overall unemployment is running at roughly 20% (more than 4m people) with 18-24yr olds being very badly hit at 43+%.

    Methinks we need to take a leaf out of the Spanish book, GV – and the way things are going the sooner the better!
