A protest movement is blowing across Europe. It started May 15 in Spain via social networks, bringing together mostly young people but also people from all walks of life. Calling themselves the Indigados, the indignant, they protest against the austerity policies, job insecurity and unemployment. They demand the establishment of a real democracy.
Arab inspired revolutions, this movement has spread beyond Spain to reach Greece, France or Germany. Protestors occupy the places of the cities, setting up camps and come together to assert their claims so pacifist and self-managed.
