It started with a demonstration last Sunday, this is the manifest:
People started to camp spontaneously in Madrid’s “Puerta del Sol” planning to stay there until next Sunday’s regional and municipal elections. Popular Assemblies were formed to discuss what to do next (http://yfrog.com/h73ephtzj) and social networks were on fire spreading the news, despite the official media efforts to manipulate the situation (hashtags to follow: #spanishrevolution #acampadasol #nonosvamos). International support would be very welcomed as we Spaniards aren’t very proficient in English.
This morning the Police came and kick the protesters out of Sol (http://youtu.be/_5Vm48Eeb_Y). They were shouting: “No to violence” as they were being beaten. Today massive protests and camps are planned throughout Spain at 20:00, in London we needed more time to organise ourselves and will meet on Wednesday 18th in Sloane Square to march peacefully to the Spanish Embassy.
This demonstration is not only for Spaniards living in London, but for everyone who is concerned and angry about the political, economic, and social outlook which we see around us: corruption among politicians, businessmen, bankers, leaving us helpless, without voice.
So if you don´t want our welfare system to collapse and all our social rights ignored and broken, come and join us. It doesn´t matter if you are British, Spanish, European, Asian, African, American... We are all in the same boat and we are demanding the same.
Following the hugely successful demonstrations on over 50 Spanish cities last Sunday, several initiatives in Madrid, Barcelona, Santander, Cordoba and Seville, are continuing protests by camping out in the streets until Sunday's elections. In London we will meet every day, from Wednesday 18th to the 22nd of May, to march from Sloane Square to the Spanish Embassy. Let's show them we are fed up as well.
Bring sheets, sprays, cardboard, banners, loudspeakers, and as many people as we can. We have to make our voice heard.
