Spain: a break in the political establishment

Decemberís elections broke the hold of the two main capitalist parties for the first time since the Franco dictatorship. The high vote for representatives of workersí and social movements, and the recovery of the left-populist Podemos, open up a new phase in the struggle against austerity. DANNY BYRNE reports.
