Juan Luis Cebrián, que te folle un pez

  La prensa oficialista “de izquierdas” también tiene un papel que interpretar en este circo. Al hijo del becario de Franco hay que legitimarlo inventándose lo que sea: ahí la propaganda del regimen juega aquí un papel muy importante, y Cebrián ya ha hecho méritos de sobra como palanganero real en otras ocasiones. ¿De qué nos extrañamos entonces?

Batura: Blog de Xabel Vegas

El que fuera director del diario El País y actual presidente del Consejo de Administración del Grupo Prisa, Juan Luis Cebrián, publicó el pasado domingo en su periódico un extenso artículo de opinión que lleva por título “¿Monarquía o República?: Democracia”. En el despliega todas sus armas dialécticas, de esas que pretenden manipular la realidad para acomodarla al deseo de uno mismo. Unas estrategias (des)informativas que bien podría haber aprendido Cebrián en su etapa como redactor jefe del diario Pueblo, propiedad del Sindicato Vertical, o como jefe de informativos de RTVE durante el franquismo.

Tendrán que disculparme mis lectores por el título grosero de este artículo. No cumple con los estándares mínimos de respeto que se le debería exigir a cualquier texto que pretenda rebatir una opinión ajena. El motivo de tal exabrupto no es que el artículo de Cebrián resulte insultante o sea indignante, que lo es. Incluso eso…

La gran estafa de la democracia. Espías en España.

Los primeros organismos de información que aparecen en España se crean en la guerra de independencia tras la invasión Francesa, a través de una serie de informadores, que actuaban en la red de Correos. En 1932 se crea la Sección del Servicio Especial (SSE) dependiente del Estado Mayor Central de la Defensa, y que perdurara hasta la Guerra Civil en 1936. Tuvo una importante presencia en Marruecos donde llego a tener cuatro oficinas. Tras el estallido de la guerra, los servicios republicanos se reorganizan, y crean tres departamentos: el Servicio de Investigación Militar (SIM), para la seguridad interior y contraespionaje, el Servicio de Información Especial Exterior (SIEE), para el espionaje exterior, y el Servicio de Información Especial Periférico (SIEP), dedicado a la realización de infiltraciones en la zona nacional.  En el Pais Vasco se crea en los inicios de 1936 el

Government deficits, Spain, Greece, Ireland: no improvements at all and default is just around the corner

Real-World Economics Review Blog

According to Eurostat, the 30% Greek quarterly deficit (second quarter 2013), which caused the Greed yearly deficit to be higher than ever, was caused by:

In 2013Q2 the Greek deficit is strongly influenced by capital transfers related to three bank recapitalisations and a bank resolution. The impact of this amounted to around 25 % of quarterly GDP.

Still wondering why Greek pensions are being cut?

gofdef

The transfer was triggered by banking problems which were created by the Greek default. Greece was not the only country which transferred massive grants to the banking system:

The 2012Q4 Belgian deficit is negatively influenced by a bank recapitalisation. The 2012Q4 deficit for the Czech Republic is negatively influenced by a capital transfer in the context of the church restitution. For Portugal, the quarterly variations in the seasonally adjusted net lending (+)/ net borrowing (-) during 2012 and 2013Q1 are largely due to one-off…

Spain: human rights tragedy

Edinburgh Eye

We will care for your women until your government doesSpain has joined Ireland in exporting part of its healthcare system abroad: from now on, a woman who needs an abortion – unless she can “prove” to the healthcare system in time that she was raped or that being pregnant will cause her serious mental or physical damage – will have to go to another country.

Unfortunately, of the main countries closest to Spain: Portugal only allows elective abortion up to 10 weeks and has a 3-day waiting period: and France allows elective abortion up to 12 weeks but usually with a 1-week waiting period. (Italy is about the same: first 90 days with 1-week wait except in cases of emergency.) It seems likely, therefore, that Spanish women who need abortions (if they can afford it) will have to take a cheap flight to the UK and will have to make use of the abortion services here. Those that can’t…

Spanish government attacks free speech

Spanish government clamps down on public protests

30 November 2013

The Spanish Popular Party (PP) government is preparing legislation to drastically curtail the right to protest and freedom of speech by imposing huge fines and jails sentences.

Last week Interior Minister Jorge Fernández Díaz presented a draft law to replace the 1992 Protection of Public Safety law, which provides sanctions for a range of “public order” offences.

Huge sanctions of between €30,001 and €600,000 ($820,000) could be imposed for offences including recording and broadcasting images of members of the security forces in the course of their work; disturbances in public, religious, sport and other protests; demonstrating outside parliament, regional parliaments, the Senate and high courts without official authorisation; non authorised protests in front of important building such as nuclear power plants

The manifest failure of Eurozone austerity. Government deficits in Spain, Ireland, Greece, Portugal and the UK

Real-World Economics Review Blog

According to Elstat,the turnover index in retail trade at current prices, excluding automotive fuel, recorded a decrease of 14.4% in July 2013 compared with July 2012. The Index in July 2012 recorded a decrease of 8.5% compared with July 2011“. For Spain, the comparable data for August 2013 and 2012 are -4,5% and -4,9%. Comparable declines took place in 2011 and 2010. One expects that, once, things will bottom out but it is not happening yet, more than five years after the beginning of the crisis, at least not in these countries. This also shows in data on government deficits. Despite sizeable cuts in expenditure in especially Greece the deficits are not shrinking as decreasing expenditure (government, non-financial companies, households) leads to lower incomes and lower tax receipts, despite all kinds of tax increases.(see graph, four period average of government deficits, % of GDP, Eurostat data, 2005Q4-2013Q1)).

Franco-fascism on the march in Spain: Is the government doing enough?

Americans For Catalonia

Critics say Spain’s fascist threat comes not from small groups like those set to march in Barcelona Saturday, but from the radical fringe that is part of Spain’s governing Popular Party.

October 11, 2013. Article by the Christian Science Monitor.

Extreme, neo-fascist groups in Spain are preparing for a show of force during this weekend’s nationalist holiday, and Spanish authorities are keeping a close eye on the situation.

But experts worry that the real fascist concern in Spain is not from small extremist groups, but rather from growing public displays of fascist sympathies by a small part of the conservative government’s constituency – and even among elected officials.

“Spain has not been ‘de-Francoized,’ as Germany has been de-Hitlerized,” explains Félix Ortega, a sociology professor and expert in public opinion in the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. “There are still Franco symbols even in my university!”

An alliance of radical right groups…

Demonstration at the Spanish Embassy in Holland

No Borders Morocco

On Thursday 08/08/13 during the No Borders camp in Rotterdam from 3 to 10 August 2013, we held a demonstration outside the Embassy of Spain and the Representation of the Commission of the European Union in The Hague in the Netherlands.

On the one hand this demonstration was organized to protest against the latest events that have occurred at the border fence to  and denounce the eccentric behavior of the Spanish police who have arrested and deported sub-Saharan exiles to Moroccan territory regardless of danger that awaited them. On the other hand the demonstration also denounced cooperation between the European Union and Morocco on border management.
