The Consequences of a New Spanish President

Last week a new president took office in Spain. He and his organization have an ideology that comes from the Franco dictatorship and Nazism, and his party and some supporters still defend this. They aim to benefit Spanish owning-class businesses. Their policies affect all working-class and middle-class Spanish people.

The consequences of having this president are even bigger than that, since the Spanish government presides over a powerful imperialist structure that directly affects, for example, all of Latin America as well as the Basque Country, Catalonia, and Andalucia. It also affects people in West Asia and Arab countries, since Spanish companies have large business interests there. They earn millions from selling weapons, military ships, and airplanes to dictatorships in that region.

All this is happening at the same time as the U.S. elections. My relatives and friends are talking and sending messages about it. Many people are trying to counsel about it. We are learning a lot in the process. The working-class activists’ movement is strong in the Basque Country, Catalonia, Andalucia, and Spain. Our leadership is strong, our thinking is smart. You can learn a lot from us.
