Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In French: "Indignez vous!".

I'm thinking that the (American) English would be get pissed, which is different (but not mutually exclusive) with the way that the British use the phrase.

I prefer "Get Fired Up" even if Obama has co-opted it. "Get Pissed" just seems too tea-party.

I prefer "get pissed". The problem with the tea party is not their anger, its in taking their marching orders from Big Oil and Fox News.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.

http://democraciarealya.es/ gives me a blank page. But our ET posters who are fluent in Spanish could comment and provide appropriate links to ET diaries and comments for this site.
