Even though a darkness has fallen across our planet in the form of poverty, fraud and suffering at the hands of those who wish to control us, human beings are REFUSING to lay down for the benefit of these “Bad Guys”. We are all WAKING UP and there is BEAUTY and GOODNESS in this new awake state which will EVENTUALLY dissolve the darkness.
Case in point is what just happened at the Unemployment Office in Madrid, Spain…
Amaia Engana didn’t wait to be evicted from her home. On Nov. 9, in the town of Barakaldo, a suburb of Bilbao in Spain’s Basque Country, officials from the local judiciary were on their way to serve her eviction papers. Amaia stood on a chair and threw herself out of her fifth-floor apartment window, dying instantly on impact on the sidewalk below. She was the second person in two weeks in Spain to commit suicide as a result of an impending foreclosure action. Her suicide has added gravity to this week’s general strike radiating from the streets of Madrid across all of Europe. As resistance to so-called austerity in Europe becomes increasingly transnational and coordinated, President Barack Obama and the House Republicans begin their debate to avert the “fiscal cliff.” The fight is over fair tax rates, budget priorities and whether we as a society will sustain the social safety net built during the past 80 years.

Thousands of Spaniards have returned to Madrid’s Plaza de Neptune to demand the government resign in protests against the latest banker bailout austerity measures.
Protestors against harsh austerity measures in Spain to pay for banker bailouts are demanding the government resign as the country teeters on the brink of civil war.
For the second day thousands of protestors filled the streets following yesterday’s wave of police brutality during which riot police incited violence which was followed by the beating of protestors including young girls and boys indiscriminately.
As police fired upon protestors surrounding congress some fought back after watching friends get beat.
The violence was also marked with police targeting journalists and smashing their cameras to cover up their criminal activity.
As the protestor’s where joined by major unions today police engaged in running street battles against the protestors while 15,000 workers walked out off their jobs in Athens to join protestors firebombing riot police there for the same reasons.
Today, Saturday, September 29th, a huge protest is planned: Spain, Greece and Portugal look to be the big ones. Smaller protests are expected in London, Rome and the Netherlands. It all starts at six pm (Madrid is six hours ahead of EST, so the protests will start at 12 noon – our time, 9 am PST). 40 cities in Spain will be joining the protest, calling it a global emergency and some have tweeted that the Revolution might happen today.
The Spanish Citizens will be surrounding Congress again, demanding the resignation of their government and new elections.A new tactic of global resistance is emerging: “Surround the Congress.” Following #25S, when thousands of protestors converged on Spain’s parliament building in Madrid to denounce austerity and the kidnapping of popular sovereignty by the Troika and the Markets, similar actions will take place Saturday September 29th across Spain and in a number of European capitals, including Rome, Lisbon, London, Brussels, and Amsterdam. With momentum behind the new tactic growing, AdBusters has called for an October 31 “Halloween Party” on Capitol Hill. http://ht.ly/2sqdVH
“Our cameras collect when a plainclothes policeman is arrested and blindfolded by their peers in a burden UIP. The secret police is identified as a partner. It is proof that police had infiltrated the concentration of 25-S”

Anti-austerity protests continued for a second consecutive night in Madrid on Wednesday. Thousands of protesters filled the streets throughout the day on Wednesday, some facing off with police who had beaten protesters with batons and fired rubber bullets into the crowds the night before. Prime Minister Rajoy still plans on announcing a new round of drastic austerity measures on Thursday, despite national outrage, including public sector pay cuts, privatization of public assets, tax increases, and a raise in retirement age by two years.
The Bank of Spain said Wednesday that the country is entering an extreme depression, but protesters argue that more cuts to public budgets are not the answer and will be devastating to the county’s struggling middle and working classes. Currently Spain continues to suffer a 26% unemployment rate as 22% of Spanish households now live below the poverty line. Today, as thousands continued to gather outside of barricades, which were set up to blockade Spain’s Parliament building, many chanted “government, resign” and held signs simply saying “No” as a sign of refusal to the ongoing austerity program. Katharine Ainger writes for the Guardiantoday:
The attempt by the Spanish “Occupy” movement, the indignados, to surround the Congress in Madrid has been compared by the secretary general of the ruling rightwing People’s party (PP) to an attempted coup.
Dear Masters, please give us an overview of the state of the planet and the probabilities of dangerous storms, etc. A lot of concern about Yellowstone, the Madrid Fault, and the Cascadian Fault on the web. This given today (3/29/12)
Masters: This is a time of concern for all those who dwell near the well-known dangerous places in your country and around the world as the planet stretches and shifts. The forces that push and pull vary from day to day, paring predictions down to probabilities. At this moment in time, Yellowstone is fairly quiet, but deep underneath the magma is heating up and may cause new geysers to appear very soon. This is a dangerous place for a vacation.
Quakes in the mid section of the U.S. have been occurring in unexpected areas due to the vibrations of the shift in the Madrid fault. Rock formations carry the movement for hundreds of miles and the shifting itself creates new pathways to carry these movements. These slight quakes are nothing to worry about. The Madrid Fault itself is like a pot on a burner, heating up. The Western coastlines of the North American continent appear to us like a gigantic bulls eye, waiting for a shot from a very inexpert marksman. From California through Canada and up into the wilds of Alaska, the Pacific plates could move against these coasts at almost any time. At this point in time we do not see very violent movements, but there is bound to be constant quakes for months to come.
