Does anyone really think the central bankers and politicians in Europe, Japan, China and the U.S. have solved anything? Austerity and tax increases for the masses with riches and bonuses for bankers and the financial elite is a recipe for revolution. Those in control have been successful in pitting the masses against each other so far. This video is a perfect example. People don’t like when their free shit is reduced or taken away. The slimy politicians promised more than they ever could pay out, believing their banker puppeters could print enough to honor the obligations. Now the people who were promised something for nothing are pissed. Do these Belgian firemen and policemen sense the irony of this situation? They are both government employees. The firemen are confronting the police. They have a common enemy – the banks and central bankers. When will they join forces and go after the real culprits?
We have the same situation in the U.S. Our owners and their media outlets keep the masses distracted with debt ceiling bullshit, pitting liberals versus conservatives. The true enemy resides on Wall Street and in the corporate boardrooms. When will the people of the world realize this?
I’m guessing it will take another financial crisis on a bigger scale than September 2008 to start the fire.
Belgian firemen were protesting against national budget cuts for the fire department in Brussels on Monday. Firemen from all the country gathered in front of Prime Minister’s office with fire trucks and blocked traffic in Brussels’ ring road. They burned tyres in the streets and sprayed water and foam towards police guarding the protest. At some point police officers stood knee-deep in foam on the street. Talks are ongoing on the ministerial level on the new Belgian budget, and firemen are protesting against cuts in their insurance benefits and insufficient staffing.
