Is It Spring Time In Europe?

      When ever people take to the streets in protest at the corruption, inequality, and injustice, that is rife in this stinking system, it is difficult to get a true picture of what is happening. That babbling brook of bullshit, the mainstream media, always put a slant on it that it is just a bunch of hooligans looking for trouble. It is never portrayed as genuine anger, nor is it reported as demand for real change.

Unlike the recent conflicts in Ukraine, this movement has eschewed nationalistic strife to focus on class issues. In a region infamous for ethnic bloodshed, this offers a more promising direction for the Eastern European uprisings to come.
     To gain more insight into the protests, we conducted two interviews. The first is with a participant in Mostar, Bosnia, who describes the events firsthand. The second is with a comrade in a nearby part of the Balkans, who explains the larger context of the movement, evaluating its potential to spread to other parts of the region and to challenge capitalism and the state.
