Indignados movement anniversary

Madrid, Spain – June 2011

It has been a year now since the ‘plazas’ in all Spanish cities were flooded and occupied by mostly young people, discontented with politics, corrupted politicians, financial institutions, bankers and all the holders of power in the modern consumption society. These youngsters, camping in tents on the city squares, called themeselves ‘Indignados’, the Angry ones. A year has passed and ‘Indignados’ haven't disappeared. The Occupy movement has spread across the Europe and the United States. Now, ‘Indignados’ claim that there is even more injustice to complain about and more objectives to fight for.
