Spain: anarchist unions call GENERAL STRIKE. Oct31.

Final Update Oct 30th.  the General Strike call for tomorrow will go ahead as a ‘Day Of Struggle’ with direct actions in Catalunya, plus pickets, a partial transport strike, and a demo in the evening. This is an alternative and building resistance. It’s also been backed by the CNT anarcho syndicalist union, (which is quite small as it refuses to cooperate with the State.) Of course these anarchist unions also support the Nov 14th South Europe General Strike!

Update Oct 24th.. Finally the ‘majority’ Unions have called a General Strike for Nov 14th. But the CGT are going ahead with theirs anyway.. let’s see if it works!!

(summary translated by The Free). The big sold out Unions have so far failed to back the Anarchist call but are pressured to do so. All the Unions missed the chance to strike on Sept 26th with Euskadi and Greece and link with Occupy Congress..

Unemployment continues to increase in SEPTEMBER


…..More and more workers in the unemployment line, according to just released by the Ministry of Employment and Social Security with the September data in hand. There are 79,645 new people, an increase of 1.72% compared to the end of August, which reached a staggering 4.7 million registered unemployed in INEM offices, while membership in the Social Security descends by 86,174 people….

If to this we add the precarious labor precariousness of basic rights such as education and health-victims of savage cuts, alongside the dismantling and privatization of basic public services, the picture becomes bleak, and should be considered as a real provocation and insult to our dignity…..

Spain: 94,502 evictions in 6 months, 532 a day.

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.
Plan de rescate ciudadano, YA!
