Report on indignado protests in Greece and Spain

Interesting report about organized indignado protests in Greece and Spain from RT, 'Enough is Enough!' Spanish & Greeks unite in austerity rage YouTube date 02/29/2012:



The reporting on the Spanish real estate bubble could be better in that piece. You might draw the conclusion from it that it was largely the result of "government waste" (although it is specifically referencing airport building there). RT sometimes gives too much credibility to libertarian economics.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
