The spokesman of Judges for Democracy published in his Facebook profile a Decalogue to end the ‘ shame ‘ that killed more than 100,000 people who remain in mass graves.
Joaquim Bosch , spokesman for the progressive Association of Judges for Democracy , wanted to explain in a simple way and through a Decalogue their stance on the situation of the families of the victims of Francoism and the “shameful ” Spanish Government action to not favor or even allow the recovery of their remains . Spain , reminded the judge , is the second country with the highest number of ‘disappeared’, behind Cambodia.
Today it’s more important than ever to remember what happened as fascism is stirred up again to protect corrupt politicians and put down protests at mass poverty.
The Beatification Ceremony comes at a historic moment. For the first time an Interpol warrant has been issued for 2 notorious fascist criminals of the Franco regime, and the United Nations has called for an investigation into the thousands of ‘disappearances’ under ther dictatorship.
Murdered priests used for propaganda as victims still ignored
When right wing sections of the Spanish military tried to take power from the Republican Government the Catholic Hierarchy came out in their favour even signing a public Pastoral Declaration supporting them which may have swung the war in their favour.
The support of the all powerful Church helped turn a failed army mutiny into a Crusade against the popular desire for abolishing oppression, portrayed as the evils of anarchism and communism. This resulted in a giant horror, with over 500,000 deaths on all sides and 40 years of fascist/catholic dictatorship, plus the execution of 100,000 republican prisoners, the robbery of 200,000 babies, etc, etc Continue reading “522 Fascist Clergy to get made into Saints”
Fear, Loathing and Collective Amnesia in Crisis-Ridden Spain
Update: Since the Catalans joined hands in a 400km demo for Independencethe fascist reaction has been predictable, with all sorts of politicians and military men making outrageous, illegal, racist invitations to violence against Catalans which are plastered all over the Spanish media
If Spain and Catalonia were playing a real rather than figurative game of Russian Roulette, the revolver would now be loaded with at least two or three bullets. On Tuesday night, an extra one was slipped into a chamber when the Principe de Asturias prize-winning economist Juan Valerde announced that Madrid may have to “bomb Barcelona” in order to put a halt to the region’s rising separatist aspirations.

..Due to their history of dictators the 1% in South Europe have been able to coerce, swindle, supertax, deprive and overwork us, while stashing billions of our money in tax havens…
The ruling Conservative and liberal parties, both in Spain and in most European Union countries, including the Eurozone, are implementing policies that result in: 1) labour reforms that reduce wages and increase unemployment, 2) the shrinking of the labour force, 3) reduction of social protection, 4) social spending cuts, 5) the privatization of public services and the welfare state, 6 ) the reduction of labour and social rights; 7) cuts to, and privatization of state pensions, and 8) the weakening of collective bargaining and unions.

First lesbian who seeks redress for the Spanish fascist repression is still persecuted for being gay, thereforeshe is known only as M.C.D.
Prosecution: “I declare that M. C. D. is a homosexual and a rebel to her family ”
The first lesbian who seeks compensation after being jailed and punished by the Spanish State was sentenced without her counsel making any defense.
M.C.D. feels that she has almost a moral duty to address the media. But she does reluctantly and with limitations: neither her name nor place of residence must be made public.
New record of evictions in 2012: 532 per day.Shame!
According to data released Tuesday by the General Council of the Judiciary, in the second quarter of 2012 continued to increase evictions in the Spanish state, from 517 a day in the first quarter, to 532 per day in the second quarter.
In just six months, and there have been 94,502 foreclosures.
While the government insists on rescuing banks and cutting billions from schools and hospitals to be gobbled up by the ever growing debt and interest rates, rather than responding to citizen demands requiring the recovery of thousands of homes illegally accumulated in the hands of financial institutions .
We demand the retroactive payment in the immediate moratorium on evictions and social rent for hundreds of thousands of empty flats in the hands of banks. Citizen Rescue Pla, NOW
Nuevo record de desahucios en 2012: 532 al día. ¡Vergüenza!
Según los datos publicados este martes por el Consejo General del Poder Judicial, en el segundo trimestre de 2012 siguieron aumentando los desahucios en el estado español, pasando de los 517 al día del primer trimestre, a 532 al día en el segundotrimestre.
En sólo seis meses ya se han producido 94.502 desahucios.
Mientras, el gobierno insiste en seguir rescatando a la banca a través del “banco malo”, endeudando al país entero, en lugar de responder a las demandas ciudadanas que exigen la recuperación de los miles de pisos acumulados de forma ilegítima en manos de entidades financieras.
Exigimos la dación en pago retroactiva, la moratoria inmediata de los desahucios y el alquiler social para los miles de pisos vacíos en manos de los bancos, tal y como recoge la ILP que a finales de octubre llevaremos al congreso respaldada por cientos de miles de firmas.
The Government, bosses, police and fascist right have been making every kind of threats, slanders, arrests, lies, provocations, legal charges, etc to stop the Occupy Congress movement for 25 Sept.
