Democracy Now reports from Greece and Spain on recent mass demonstrations against yet more austerity. Maria Carrion’s accurate analysis of the systematic looting of the public purse being carried out to maintain corporate and financial dominance over democracy reveals the human cost of austerity.
The report highlights many elements of the Goldman Sachs/IMF/ECB requirements which further remove citizens freedom. At the end of the report is a reference to those arrested at the demonstration facing much higher ranked criminal charges “against the nation”. This was reported below
