The Spanish Summer

The Rising People

Written by Aaron Peterson

 

The world lies in wait as the ideological battle between the forces of far-right fascism square off with the free and oppressed who dare to speak against them. The crisis was sparked by the failure of liberal democracy in Ukraine, from then onward it has meant an intense ideological face down between the forces of Neo-Nazism and of oppressive nationalism in the right sense and anti-fascist forces throughout Europe.  Once more, the battle ground has reached the heart of Spain, the Basque people have spoken with numbers to call for democracy and self-determination in the Basque Country. In order to make the Basque Country, an independent European state to decide it’s own future free from the Spanish state’s stranglehold.

100,000 filled the streets in defiance to the Spanish state to cry out for their rights. Forming a human chain together, brother and sister united by arms. Demanding the release of Basque political prisoners and prisoners of war that have been held in Spanish and French jails. Along with the independence of the Basque Country. Marking a high point in the struggle of the Basque People. Where the fear of the Spanish state cracking down or of pro-government death squads is not taken into account. With only the thought of breaking the chains that have been held on the Basque people for decades in mind.

Not only in the Basque Country are the people rising for greater democracy. In Catalonia, the people less than a year ago joined in the ranks of millions to demand independence through the form of popular protests. Even in the heart of Madrid, the people now form lines together in calling for the end to the monarchy. One thing is for certain, what is ongoing in Spain, is part of a revolutionary movement. It is the European Summer coming to battle the ideologies of Neo-Fascism. It is a movement representing the anti-colonial, anti-imperialist  fervor and the push for revolutionary change.
