Wolff: “Something is happening here…”

From Richard Wollf:

Yet the delayed, repressed, and hesitant response of angry masses has been growing, despite the heaps of ridicule mixed with media disinterest they have suffered. Hungary’s new leaders will not tolerate more austerity. Greek workers mount general strikes and clash with police and the military in an escalating conflict that will become only more intense once students return to Athens next month. The tea party folks don’t go away. France has set a general strike for September 7. All of Europe is planning a day of actions at the end of September. The AFL-CIO and NAACP are marching on Washington October 2. Something is happening here and there that suggests that the easy ride of finance and capital through this Great Recession may not last. Business and government leaders may have counted their chickens too soon. Speaking of those animals, perhaps another kind is coming home to roost as the people begin to move.
