Españistán by Aleix Saló

I’m at a union communicators conference in Spain and in the current session, organizers from the US, Ireland, and Spain have talked about the impacts of financial collapse on workers and how systemic failure happened. This video has well over 3.5 million views across various languages. It’s an incredibly good explanation of how the Spanish economy was built on a house of cards and what caused the collapse that is still ongoing here in Spain. Just this Sunday, I got to see a protest by the 15M movement and Pirate Party of hundreds of thousands of workers, young people, and the unemployed. It reminded me of Wisconsin, but on a larger scale. Truly impressive responses are happening in Europe (particularly Greece, Spain, Portugal and France) to the lack of accountability by elites for destroying economies, destroying public services, and stealing wealth from working people.
