Thousands in Spain revive May 15 protests to rail against cuts, government

By Al Goodman, CNN
Sun May 13, 2012…

 Madrid (CNN) — Chanting “they don’t represent us,” tens of thousands in Madrid railed early Sunday against Spain’s government and austerity cuts — venting their anger on the first anniversary of the so-called May 15 protest movement…Barcelona saw about 22,000 protesters, while Valencia had 8,000 and Seville had 2,000, authorities said…The coordinated events marked the return of the “indignados” — or the outraged, as the protesters became known — who led Europe’s first serious and significant grassroots movement against austerity and government budget cuts.  http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/12/world/europe/spain-protests/?hpt=hp_t3

This should be no surprise to regular readers of this page.  Back in 2010 (see Civil War in Greece?), I warned, “Austerity measures in Europe will likely cause civil unrest”. As well later in December 2010 (see Civil Unrest in Greece (and it was predicted) where I warned:

Civil unrest in Europe is expected.  Places such as France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Eastern Europe have potential for this occurrence.  In addition to austerity measures, Islamic protests and immigration related issues will also likely be factors in flaming protests and devastating riots.  Expanded civil unrest will have major impacts on the euro and on Europe itself.

Expanded civil unrest will have major impacts on the euro and on Europe itself. It is highly likely to propel a European leader to rise up. The final leader will be the one known as the Beast (Revelation 13:3-4) and final King of the North (Daniel 11:22-44) of Bible prophecy.

Europe is prophesied to have problems (Daniel 11:41-43) and not all the problems have happened yet.  Spain and other parts of Europe are likely to have even more significant civil unrest before a strong leader is granted power (cf. Revelation 17:12-13).

World events are aligning with prophecy. There will be ups and downs in Europe until the final European beast power rises up. The protests may turn quite violent and this may be a major trigger for the rise of the prophesied final King of the North.

Some articles of possibly related interest may include:

Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Do biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies point to the same leader? Should he be followed? Who will be the King of the North discussed in Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand? When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States?
Europa, the Beast, and Revelation Where did Europe get its name? What might Europe have to do with the Book of Revelation? What about “the Beast”? Is an emerging European power “the daughter of Babylon”? What is ahead for Europe?
