Telefonica-Movistar: a united fight against exploitation

Telefonica-Movistar: a united fight against exploitation

The tentacles of Spain’s Telefonica Movistar spread far and wide. I refer not only to the interests of their shareholders, such as banks BBVA and La Caixa, or close links with political power, and their “representatives” on the board, but its “army” of workers. In Spain, the company claims to… »

Spanish State: After the abdication of the king, it’s time to checkmate the regime

Spanish State: After the abdication of the king, it’s time to checkmate the regime

The regime is collapsing, it is dying and in its last-ditch struggle to survive, the king has abdicated.

Do we know what we eat?

Knowing what we eat has become something which is every day more difficult. The recent food scandal where horse meat was detected in beef highlights this clearly.

Spain is in the hands of thieves

Spain is in the hands of thieves

No doubt. We are in the hands of thieves. The Barcenas, Pallerols, Crespo, Nóos and Mercurio cases, added to the Gürtel case, Millet, Champion, Pretoria and many others, show that those who have been giving us lessons of austerity have been benefitting: not only the bankers and businessmen but also,… »
