Repression Overcome in Barcelona
Events yesterday in Barcelona gave a powerful indication that the 15-M revolt (in reference to the 15th of May when it began) has much life left in it. The capitalist establishment hoped that following the elections last Sunday, the mass youth movement which castigates all the main parties and their pro-rich policies, would somehow fizzle out. The tremendous response of the movement in Barcelona to the state’s attempt to liquidate the protest seems to have dashed any such hopes for the time being.
