#globalnoise: Further protests in Spain – there are alternatives to current austerity plans

Coordinadora25S already calls for the next actions and protests on October 23, 25, and 27 (#23O, #25O; #27O) as neither Parliament nor politicians are listening to the various civil society platforms (often called the #15M movement) who are discussing alternatives since a long time. There is even a book published on that issue by renown Spanish scientists.  (See book described below).

On October 23, they will – #23O surround Congress – because Parliament will start to discuss budgets for 2013 imposed by the Troika. “The next year, 1 in 4 Euros will go toward paying an illegitimate debt, that we did not cause”, Coordinadora25 says. While this increases aid for banks, government cuts the budgets of Health (22%), education (14%), Environment (14%), Social Affairs (14%), Culture (19%), Equality (24%), etc. On October 25 the  #25O Decentralised Actions all over Spain will take place and on October 27 the #27OProtest at the Congress will happen in Madrid again to reject the budget 2013.
