What's going on?

I'm about to severely dampen my blogging efforts (I'll write something later on that) but by the moment here is in brief what seems most important that has happened in the last days:

Basque Country:

European Human Rights Court sentences (again) that Basque prisoner Inés del Río must be set free and that the Spanish doctrine of factual imprisonment for life ("Parot doctrine", only applied to Basque prisoners, quite arbitrarily) is illegal under the European Human Rights Convention.  → Borroka Garaia Da![es]


Country paralyzed by massive protests and worker strikes in second weekend of protests → Webguerrillero[es].

Huge protests lead by the "antagonist" social movements against the Troika and the bourgeois "unity" government→ Webguerrillero[es] (incl. video).

Demonstrators attack German Embassy in Rome with firecrackers → video WG[es].


Two young men in hunger strike for the resignation of the government → Webguerrillero[es].

Police unions denounce the government for training them in criminal methods such as shooting directly against protesters with rubber bullets → Webguerrillero[es].


Durao Barroso, President of the European Comission (EU's unelected directorate), bombed with rotten eggs in Liege → Webguerrillero[es].

Catalan Countries:

IMF vice-director, Josep Vignals, conference in Valencia University interrupted at the chant of "murderer!" → Webguerrillero[es].


Large protests against the deportations of immigrant children → Webguerrillero[es]. Also: video of clashes.


Teachers march for their salaries and pensions → Webguerrillero[es].

Wokers are also poor in Britain: 3/4 of poor children in Britain belong to families where at least one parent works full journey. The UK has very high levels of poverty and very low levels of social mobility → Webguerrillero[es].


Large marches against polluting Canadian mining multinationals → Webguerrillero[es].


Video of the brutal murder of a family by NATO-sponsored Islamists → Webguerrillero[es].


Clashes between teachers and police → Webguerrillero[es] (video).

Police murders young man by beating → at Contra Info


Some 130 people injured by police forces in repressive bout against the Native uprising that, according to their organizations, is active in 17 districts of the republic. → Webguerrillero[es].

Previously several police agents and soldiers were retained by the Native pickets → Webguerrillero[es].

Joint marches of Natives, farmers and students take Bogotá and other cities → Webguerrillero[es].


Candidate murdered. Elvin Hernández, of the Libre coalition that represents the anti-putschist democratic and socialist forces, was murdered. Previously Hernández had been member of the Liberal Party. → at LINyM[es].

Dominican Republic:

Riots shatter the country after young boy murdered by police. → Webguerrillero[es].


Elderly man murdered by LA police in unjustified drug raid. As usual, police blames the victim → Webguerrillero[es].

Environmental catastrophe:

"The ocean is broken : Report from sailor Ivan Macfadyen aboard the Funnel Web" → at Fukushima Emergency (not about radiation this time but the brutal destruction of overfishing).

Fukushima nuclear catastrophe:

Fukushima Daiichi former director, Masao Yoshida, dies of cancer → at Fukushima Emergency. Of course they claim it's "impossible" that his cancer is in any way related to the nuclear catastrophe but they lie even more than they talk and this guy, like other Fukushima personnel, went through a major nuclear explosion (the explosion of reactor 3 was a nuclear one, without doubt) and all the other radiation derived from the slower but equally destructive meltdown in the three other reactors affected). My respects because I do not think by a second that he was directly responsible for the accident, he just worked there.

Typhoons seem to have dramatically aggravated the already disastrous situation at Fukushima Daiichi → EneNews
