Spanish outraged by corruption seize the streets
The public outrage in Spain has reached its limit, inhabitants of several Spanish cities are protesting with posters that read, “Resignation“, “Stop” and “Shame of Spain” which were exhibited yesterday in the sueroundings of the headquarters of the Partido Popular(PP) in Madrid.
The new wave of protests started due to a publishing of El Pais newspaper about an alleged accounting handwritten by LuisBarcenas, former treasurer of the PP, which consisted in a chapter of income, donations from businessmen, many from the construction sector and other expenses with money deliveries for nearly two decades that were given to the high officials of the party, including the Spanish president MarianoRajoy.
The corruption exposed shows the consequences suffered by the Spanish people are facing for the big austerity, an unemployment exceeding 26% and the constant corruption that targets senior officials of the country and even the monarchy.
After two days of silence, the explanation of Rajoy, did not raise the spirits, the hashtag#RajoyNoContesta was one of the most talked about on Twitter, after a speech that the president gave to the leadership of his party. “I have never received or have given away dirty money in this party or anywhere,” said Rajoy. He announced that next week he will publish his tax returns. He added that anyone that believes that by “harassment” he would leave his job as president “is mistaken.”
