Categories: Western Europe, Spain, Citizen Media, Economics & Business, Politics, Protest

Due to the outcry produced by parliamentarian Andrea Fabra's declarations [1], she had to publicly retract [2] [es] (PDF) and present a written apology after having declared “¡qué se jodan!” (“Fuck them!”) when President Mariano Rajoy announced the harshest social cuts in the history of Spanish democracy. The letter is an apology to the House of Representatives and to the PSOE (Spanish Socialist Labour Party), but not to the people.
