– Meanwhile in Spain… (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Jan 13, 2014):
Things have gotten a bit feisty in the Spanish city of Burgos, where violent protests have emerged in recent days over the decision to reduce the size of a road by half. It seems the protestors made a special point to vent their anger at a branch of Spanish bank Santander.
Don’t worry though, everything’s just fine. Nothing to see here serfs, move along. Recovery is proceeding as planned.

Angry demonstrators marched through the city’s streets, dismantling barricades and disrupting contraction work by throwing concrete blocks. The window of one Santander bank was smashed to pieces during the riots.
