Protesters attacked one policeman at Syntagma Square, near the spot where Dimitris Christoulas, 77, committed suicide on Wednesday morning. Dimitris stated in his suicide note that his pension had been cut and he chose to end his life in order to have “…a dignified end, before resorting to going through garbage in order to cover my nutritional needs.” The policeman was stripped of his uniform and some equipment which was burned on the spot of the suicide. There have been many protests and clashes with authorities in response to the suicide.
One day, I believe, the youth with no future will take up arms and hang the national traitors at syntagma square, just like the Italians did with Mussolini in 1945 (at Milan’s Piazzale Loreto)

Workers and youths assemble barricades in front of one of Spains largest food suppliers early this morning in an attempt to block trucks from entering or exiting.
Spains major unions have called for a 24 hour general strike that started this morning with several blockades being erected to prevent commercial and public vehicles from continuing their normal routine. The strike is in response to new spending cuts by the spanish government. The new conservative government and its prime minister Mariano Rajoy have introduced several austerity measures in the 100 days they have been in power including $11.85bn worth of spending cuts, $8.39bn in tax rises, reduced severance pay for laid-off workers, and reforms making it easier to hire and fire workers.
A cop car seats at least four!
