Millions Of Protestors Gather Across Europe!
Brace Yourself America....
It's Comming Here Too!
BRUSSELS — Greek doctors and railway employees walked out, Spanish workers shut down trains and buses, and one man even blocked the Irish parliament with a cement truck as anti-austerity protests erupted across Europe Wednesday.
Tens of thousands of demonstrators poured into Brussels, hoping to swell into a 100,000-strong march on European Union institutions later in the day and reinforce the impact of Spain's first nationwide strike in eight years.
All the actions sought to protest the budget-slashing, tax-hiking, pension-cutting austerity plans of European governments seeking to control their debt.
Unions fear that workers will become the biggest victims of an economic crisis set off by bankers and traders, many of whom were rescued by massive government intervention.
'A great danger'
Several governments, already living dangerously with high debt, were pushed to the brink of financial collapse and have been forced to impose punishing cuts in wages, pensions and employment — measures that have brought workers out by the tens of thousands over the past months.
'All politicians should be sacked'
In Dublin, a man blocked the gates of the Irish parliament with a cement truck to protest the country's expensive bank bailout. Written across the truck's barrel in red letters were the words: "Toxic Bank" Anglo and "All politicians should be sacked."
"All of working Europe is on the streets today to express dismay over near-sighted income-cutting politics," said Vytautas Jusys, a 40-year-old engineer who lost his job this year.
Unions: Half the workforce on strike
Unions said 10 million people, or more than half the workforce, were on strike. Government officials gave no numbers but played down disruption.
Few buses were running in Madrid and only half of underground trains, although Labor Minister Celestino Corbacho said a minimum guaranteed service agreed with unions was being met. In northern Spain, car factory assembly lines halted.
"We'll continue to strike if that's what's needed to bring down the labor reform, which threatens to make jobs even more vulnerable," said graphic designer Alfredo Perez, one of the pickets.
Bus and trolley drivers walked off the job for several hours while Athens' metro system and tram were to shut down at noon. National railway workers were also walking off the job at noon, disrupting rail connections across the country, while doctors at state hospitals were on a 24-hour strike.
Greece has already been suffering from two weeks of protests by truck drivers who have made it difficult for businesses to get supplies. Many supermarkets are seeing shortages, while producers complaining they are unable to export their goods.
"I think it's total chaos, I will retire soon but I don't know if there will be any money to pay me for my pension," said Fatima Ferreira, a school coordinator in Lisbon on her way to work.

Doesn't this sound familiar? Governments running up debt to the point of near financial collapse, then preying upon the people, finding ways to suck every dollar they can from them. This is the biggest heist in history of the fruit of everyones hard work, savings, home equity, retirement plans, etc., and it is also happening in America RIGHT NOW!
Not to long ago we all heard about the riots in Greece that made the headlines. Now there is massive rioting all across Europe.
The reason for this is unprecedented, miscellaneous government spending of peoples tax money including huge bailouts to private to businesses, which, in the U.S. is an un-constitutional use of tax money.
This causes such monumental debt that, for generations to come, your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, will NEVER be able to pay it off. Even raising taxes, which are exorbitant NOW, and cutting services will not do it.
In other words, you ALL will be financially bled to death including future generations.
Here is a good analogy to simplify it:
Lets say that you parents were really "livin it up", spending like crazy, living like a millionaire way beyond their means, but didn't have the cash to live that way so it was all on credit; all the credit cards maxed out, numerous bank loans, etc., putting them in such monstrous debt that in no way could they ever pay it off in their lifetime. Then lets say, when they pass away, this debt is forcibly passed on to you, on top of the living expenses it cost you to survive already, and you are barely able to keep your head above water, or maybe you can't and you lose your home, your quality of living goes way down, you go to work every day slaving away to make money, but it never goes for the betterment of YOUR family, it goes to the debt and interest your parents created. Then YOU pass away and this same debt and interest is forcibly passed on to YOUR children, who because of all this, may never be able to even aford a home of their own, and this cycle keeps passing from generation to generation.
Now, in this little story, substitute the government in place of your parents.
Chaos in America, like this, could be an excuse for the government to declare Martial Law....who knows.
