…this is not the sixties

No words are needed to describe what happened yesterday February 20th inValencia,Spain.  Students have been demanding for weeks more budget for the high school, which has suffered social cuts, as applied in all the country.  Classrooms have no longer heating, which means students have to attend classes with rugs to keep warm.

On the other hand, police is trying to repress this protest using medieval tactics like running down streets beating everyone  in sight.  Yesterday the chief police addressed the students like “enemies” and is talking about tactics and words closer to a world in war than to a simple student protest.

In this article, we think images are expressive enough to show what happened yesterday.  After watching it, you will probably have in the back of your minds, memories of the sixties.
