We must have independent media—free from corporate and political influence—and trying to distract you with advertising is of no real value to anyone.

EDITORIAL: Spaniards are dissatisfied with 100% of the current government in an economic situation 90% of them see as ‘bad’ or ‘very bad’. They deserve alternatives that are unlikely to exist.

European elections will be held on May 25 in Spain and will be the first real test for Mr. Rajoy’s government and Spanish political parties since the Popular Party won an absolute majority in both houses of the Spanish parliament with 44.6% of the vote in the November 2011 general election.

The first of the interviews from the Santiago trip:

"We all went pale, silent, we didn’t react for a few seconds, it wasn’t normal. You imagine the worst, when they ask for all units. Then after a short while we saw the smoke and a huge blaze."

Here's one for you. The title (via Google Translate) says: 

"Column Kharkiv Ukrainian Tanks-Strelechya (Strіlecha) towards the border with Russia"

This would imply the Ukranians are moving armour towards the border.

Note they're moving by themselves, and not on tank transporters, as the Russian ones have been doing towards Ukraine up to now. This means either the car drove into the middle of  tank exercise or the Ukranians are actually deploying their tanks in Eastern Ukraine in preparation for a fight with the Russian ones being transported the other way.
