Further Crackdown On Dissent As The Elite Prepare For Mass Uprising

As southern Europe erupts in protest at crippling austerity measures, imposed by corrupt puppet politicians at the behest of global financial loansharks such as the IMF, the Spanish authorities have announced plans to further criminalize and crush dissent.
Spanish interior minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz yesterday announced in Congress planned reforms that would introduce harsh new punishments for those involved in organizing street protests that “seriously disturb the public peace”. A minimum jail term of two years could be imposed on those found guilty of instigating and carrying out violent acts of protest, and organizing such demonstrations through social networks would carry the same penalty as involvement in a criminal organization.
Even more alarming, acts of “passive resistance” will also carry harsher punishments under the proposed legislation, and it will be an offense, said Mr Diaz, to “breach authority using mass active or passive resistance against security forces and to include as a crime of assault any threatening or intimidating behavior”. Attempts to disrupt public services, such as the recent blockades of bus and train stations by Spanish protestors during a general strike on March 29th, would also be treated as a crime.
We can expect to see such legislation enacted across the Western world, as governments prepare for the unrest that is inevitably going to spread and intensify as living standards plummet, due to the theft and corruption of the political and financial elite.
