Spain: Safety Net Frays

Spain, like the rest of Europe faces wage, pension, and welfare cuts and freezes.

The events around the world show us is that liveable benefits, social services, and wages are interlinked-as are attacks upon them. We must all unite-employed and unemployed-against these attacks.

Spanish workers are preparing to strike, but will this be enough? The article below says that they feel betrayed by their government, but they don't know who to vote for.

Can our current worldwide economic system ever truly provide the kind of security that people need? Do we need a different kind of economic-political system that is truly designed to meet people's needs rather than profit?
