Latest from the class struggle in Europe

I got reports of violent repression in Romania, the island of Sicily stopped by a general strike, antifascist clashes in Lisbon and arrests of antifascists in Galicia. echoes with two videos the police violence against demonstrators (who seem to be resisting nonviolently):

Another longer video in Romanian can be found here.

The same site reports of a general strike in Sicily brining the island to a total halt. Video:

Meanwhile in Lisbon, Portugal, indignados (outraged), who were marching in big numbers, clashed with fascists who were defended by police, as reports Sare Antifaxista[es] (there is a video but I don't seem able to embed it, sorry).

In Compostela (aka Santiago), Galicia, four people were arrested after the demonstration against the recently deceased fascist leader Manuel Fraga. There does not seem to have been reason for those arrests other than police wanted to arrest someone. Source: Galiza Livre[gal].


Another  video (RT) reporting on Romania protests: we want jobs!

Several thousand people demonstrated in the historical Basque capital, Pamplona, (right) against loss of jobs: no more firings in Navarre, share the jobs, share the crisis ··> Gara[es].
