Echoes from the Class War (Nov 13)

Just links today. Lots of them! Sorry about the simplified format (not too organized, little elaboration) but it saves me a lot of time.

It does seem like the Occupy movement is growing in Europe (England, France, Germany) and continues strong in the USA (in spite of repression) and Australia. It also seems like other struggles are gaining strength (students in Latin America and Britain, workers in Britain...)

But there is much more.
