article imageSpain takes to streets tonight calling for Rajoy's resignation

By Anne Sewell     Jul 26, 2013 in World
In over 50 cities all over Spain as well as in several other European cities, protesters will take the streets on Friday evening to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and to call for new elections.
Ongoing protests continue in the wake of the scandal which has emerged in Spain, with the former treasurer to the ruling PP party, Luis Bárcenas, admitting that payments had been made from a slush fund to Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and other members of the party.
Tagged under #26J (July 26), #MafiaOut and #‎byebyeRajoy‬, and broadcast through a Facebook event, tens of thousands of social network users are organizing a nationwide mobilization against government corruption in Spain.
On July 18 a similar protest was held against government corruption in 30 Spanish cities, and July 26 is likely to be even bigger.

The protest will be similar to the mobizations in Brazil and Bulgaria, where there have also been great spontaneous movements against the corruption of their governments.
The call for protest reads:
“There is no possible excuse. It’s time. Politicians are in a dead end. The best they can do is apologize, resign and call for elections. It’s the only way. This mob can't continue governing this country. Go away now!"
"It’s time to mobilize citizens permanently, until the present government resign and let people build a democratic and honest alternative for all.”
