The citizens of the Spanish state awoke on April 14 to shocking news -- acts
of "pure Nazism" were spreading across the country.

Not only that, but they were being organised in concert with "elements
close to ETA" (the armed Basque independence group that has declared a
permanent ceasefire).

Who was responsible? A Spanish equivalent of the Greek neo-Nazi outfit
Golden Dawn? Some surviving cell of the Falange (one-time shock troops of
the Franco dictatorship and admirers of Hitler's New Order in Europe)?

Not quite. According to the bearer of this alarming news -- ruling
conservative People's Party (PP) secretary and Castilla-La Mancha premier
Dolores de Cospedal -- the author of the outbreak of "pure Nazism" was the
Platform of Mortgage Victims (PAH), the most powerful movement of social
resistance in the Spanish state.

"Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is humanity's
original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion." -- Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man
Under Socialism

"The free market is perfectly natural... do you think I am some kind of
dummy?" -- Jarvis Cocker
