Greek Social Contagion: Tens Of Thousands Rally In Support Of Spain’s Anti-Austerity Podemos Party (ZeroHedge, Jan 31, 2015):

Less than a week ago we warned, “today Athens, tomorrow Madrid,” and sure enough, emboldened by the success of Syriza in Greece, the people of Spain have turned out in their tens of thousands in Madrid at a demonstration called by the insurgent Spanish leftist party Podemos. As The Independent reports, Podemos, which means “we can”, has surged into first place in opinion polls in the few months since it was set up in the summer of 2014. It is now ahead of the centre-right Popular Party and centre-left Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party in many opinion polls. Podemos’s policies include a universal basic income, increased democracy, crackdowns on tax avoidance, and increased public control over the economy. Most worrying for the status-quo huggers in Brussels, Podemos has also wants to reform the European Union, describing the current euro arrangement as a “trap.”

  1. What did I say a couple of days ago? Go to your globes of the world, and the next targets of the EU by Putin will be Spain and Italy…….look at their access to waterways.
    The US doesn’t have a corner on the destabilization game, Putin can play it just as well…….
