It wasn't reported anywhere else I could find in English.

We here in the US we have only recently discovered that the math austerity budgets are based on, is extremely flawed.

It's still not common knowledge here though, as certain factions still push for austerity budgets.

How long before Europe gets the news?

How long before it's common knowledge in the US?

This government will last a very short time," said demonstrator Marco Silvani.

Don't they all?

I find it odd that there has not been a lot of coverage about this or past protests. They have had many. The austerity measures are a scam.

It's unions and folks around here HATE unions.

So they ignore stuff like this even though this was a pretty massive protest.

Even here, few people are aware that the austerity budgets are based on false information.

I have noticed that they are quite absent when it comes to that specific false information. What was that false information again?
