Al fresco dining for working people

This scene of dumpster diving for food is now so common, you probably thought it was your own city, just up the block from your house. But in this case, it’s outside a grocery store in Bilbao, Spain. A Catholic church charity estimates more than 11 million people already live below the poverty level in Spain. That’s a quarter of it’s population (46,185,697) & includes children & the elderly! This is when you thank your lucky stars for rebellion like they’re demonstrating all over Spain & for the intransigence of those 8,000 miners in northern Spain who show no sign of flagging in their resistance to the austerity plans. This is when you see the power of solidarity & unity in opposing these attacks on working people.  (Photo by Vincent West/Reuters)
