Completely unprovoked and unjustified attack of Regional Police on a group of pacific demonstrators in Plaza Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain on 27/11/2011.

Demonstrators had been gathering in the square in a pacific, violence free way for more than a week.

The 2011 Spanish protests, also referred to as the 15-M Movement or the Spanish revolution, are a series of ongoing demonstrations in Spain whose origin can be traced to social networks and the Real democracy NOW (Spanish: Democracia real YA) civilian digital platform, along with 200 other small associations.] Compared with the Arab Spring and May 1968 in France, it started on May 15 with an initial call in 58 Spanish cities.

The series of protests demand a radical change in Spanish politics, as protesters do not consider themselves to be represented by any traditional party nor favoured by the measures approved by politicians. Spanish media have related the protests to the economic crisis, Stéphane Hessel’s Time for Outrage!, the NEET troubled generation and current protests in the Middle East and North Africa, Greece, Portugal as well as the Icelandic protest and riots in 2009.The protests were staged close to the local and regional elections, held on May 22.
Even though protesters form a heterogeneous and ambiguous group, they share a strong rejection of Spanish politicians, the current two-party system in Spain between the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party and the People’s Party and political corruption and firmly support what they call basic ‘rights’: home, work, culture, health and education.The movement’s spokespeople define it as “non apolitical, but non-partisan”.


So just in case you did not get it.
This is what Democracy looks like.
Remember, The United States is a REPUBLIC!
