Spain’s Lost Generation on Hunger Strike (Video)

Under his hoodie, 25 year-old engineer Jorge Arzuaga looks like any young man who is ready to go to a soccer match in Madrid, Spain. Against the backdrop of Puerta del Sol Square, bustling with tourist activity in this cool October evening, Jorge’s mission is not one of temporary entertainment but permanent change.

European Court Ordered Spain to Release Basque ETA Terrorist

Today, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ordered Spain to free a Basque separatist militant, Ines del Rio Prada, 55, saying her extended detention was illegal and instructed Madrid government to pay her €30,000 in compensation.

Inés del Rio was jailed in 1989 for her role in 23 assassinations and bombings as an ETA operative. The ETA (an acronym for Euskadi Ta Askatasuna – “Basque Homeland and Freedom”) is a Basque independence movement which turned into…

The mothers, often young and unmarried, were told they could not see the body of the infant or attend their burial. In reality, the babies were sold to childless couples whose devout Catholic beliefs and financial security…

Spain’s conservative government passed the austerity measures in order to control euro zone’s highest budget deficit stricken economy, that was racked by a burst housing bubble in 2008.

Recently surfaced allegations, that the ruling Popular Party (PP) politicians, including Prime…
