Indignados - A Citizen Movement In Spain

Los Indignados, also known as the 15-M Movement or Take the Square, was a citizen movement formed as a result of a demonstration on May 15, 2011. After 40 people from various groups decided to camp at Puerta del Sol night spontaneously that night, a series of peaceful protests followed in Spain. The intention of the movement was to promote a more participatory democracy away from the bipartisanship PSOE-PP (a binomial comprised of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party and the People’s Party) and the domination of banks and corporations. The movement also fought an "authentic division of powers" and other measures with the intention of improving the democratic system.
