Strikes continue against austerity measures

Strikes by the workers continue to spread across the EU, in Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, France, and UK, in protest against harsh austerity measures being imposed by the governing troika, the European Union (EU), European Central Bank (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Striking is one of the last actions remaining for the working class to take in order to bring social justice.
In reality, the working force can produce enough for every citizen of every country to share, feed and care for themselves and their families. The fruits of their labor are co-opted by the corporations, banks, financiers, investors and money speculators who siphon off profits and stash the money away in off-shore tax-free havens. 

And we wonder why there is not enough money to pay a decent wage?

There is one battle left to be fought – collapse of the global financial system that will wipe out all of the accumulated wealth of the ruling class.

The battle wages on.
