On March 29, 2012, millions of people across Spain went on strike. The strike, which was the first general strike since September 2010, brought the country to a near halt. The situation in Spain has grown increasingly difficult with 1 in 4 people out of work and many struggling to make rent or mortgage payments. This short film is about what happened in Barcelona on that day.
On Tuesday, November 29, 2011, people gathered at the Austin State Capitol in a show of solidarity with the Egyptian and Syrian people. The Egyptian people are facing enormous obstacles as they continue to demand an end to military rule and the beginning of democratic reforms in their country. Over the past few days, the police and the military have responded brutally, killing dozens and injuring thousands. What makes this even worse is that the Obama administration has done an about-face and is now tacitly supporting the military regime's crackdown on the protests by refusing to intervene (a replay of the administration's response to Mubarak's crackdown on protests).
