    Earlier today, 300 thousand people from all over the country, gathered at Lisbon to protest against the government's austerity measures. It was the biggest protest ever in the country's history!

    The government wants to raise the taxes and reduce the salaries, to make us pay for all the shit they brought to themselves and us!
    They've spend millions upon millions on building shitty football arenas, buying useless submarines and constructing useless high-speed train lines, financing broken and corrupt banks, we're going down the shithole along with Greece, Spain, Italy and Ireland etc...

    It's good to see people out on the street fighting for their rights!

    Some publicity was made (mainly on blogs and on the internet) about an anti-capitalist protest during the same time but I can't seem to find any news about it...Maybe because they marched together with the other people...

    We're seeing this type of protests happen throughout the world a lot, this days...I think this is more than an economic crisis, it's a CAPITALIST crisis and people are starting to get frustrated with all this bullshit.

    Anyways, it'd be interesting for you guys to give your opinion considering this and other protests and strikes, in your country and other ones.

    For the moment I'm more concerned with Hitler Jr. trying to become prime minister of Holland, over the economic crisis, which so far, doesn't affect people too much 'cause we have no working government yet XD

    Is this it? Well, I feel sorry for you and all dutches, dude...I'm trying to organize an antifa reunion to attack a march of the P.N.R (the extreme-right wing party, which was founded by a group of publicly known neo-nazis and skinheads) next month, so I really feel for you people.

    But I don't think they'll go to the extent of leaving the EU, just to enforce their racist, xenophobic, anti-immigration laws, or at least I hope not... :ecouteurs:

    Nah Antitude that's not the fucker. It's Geert Wilders with his PVV.
    Dutch website 'Wat wil Wilders' is also available in English, try googling that phrase.
    He's trying to ban any new immigrants from known islamic countries, wants to ban head-dresses and has been inciting hate since day one. Part of me actually hopes that the bastard becomes prime minister, so there's gonna be a reason for there to be a more active militant faction around here. Probably the only good that could EVER come out of it.

    Just saw the site and read some quotes, damn, is he an asshole...
    But are PVV's chances good? Because if they are, you shouldn't wait until they come to power to take them down, you should do it right from the beggining. Which is what I'm trying to do with PNR, just showing them they're not welcome and that they can fuck off with their racist, xenophobic, neo-nazi crap!

    So far there are more than enough people AGAINST Hitler Jr. but none of them seem to want to take the first step towards militancy. Furthermore his support is large... very large, especially around here. He's the kind of guy that plays into people's fears and popular opinion, without giving an alternative or a solution. Instead he just endlessly raises new problems (some of which get blown WAY out of proportion... one of them for instance is the 'Islamic attempt at world domination' and the 'Islamification' of our country).

    That is terrifying jesus I hope he doesnt get elected. A lot of anti Islamic sentiment is getting a lot of people in power. I still cant forget how many people were having to defend obama by claiming he was "not a Muslim". Why would him being Muslim fucking matter Im not saying I support him but being a Muslim is one of the least threatening things he could be. Recently some kids beat the shit out of 15 year old girl in a headdress on one a local high school bus. I can only pray that asshole doesnt get in power.

    Yea, I read that...
    But, wtf, someone should do something about it ESPECIALLY if his support is that large! Try to organize something yourself if that's required...Try to contact and gather Antifa's Organizations and people there in Holland and do something about it...I was planning on going to work/live in Holland so it worries me that your country is on the verge of becoming the complete opposite of what it is right now!

    Me + Antifa ain't such a good combo... I don't approve of their methods here in Holland, to be honest. Hell they're good people, with great ideas, etc. It's just that their approach doesn't really fly with me.

    It seems that some of the Dutch antifa tactics remind me of fascist methods. Now I know you can fight fire with fire, but I always like to douse it with water instead :p

    Well, I can't say much because I'm all for kicking nazi and fascist scum asses :p

    And we're still being softer then they are! I have a friend who's a red skin and when he was a kid, about 12yo, he was beaten up by a group of adult nazi skins to the point that he entered a state of coma...So, fighting fire with fire would be beating up their kids too but that's really just a new kind of low and I would never do that!

    I understand what you're saying though.

    No, but I understand that they're way more organized than us, antifas, but, hell, being affraid of them won't solve the problem.
    It's a though "war" but we can win...
