#15M Protests Continue #Occupy SPAIN #OWS


"As Spain's prime minister announced deep austerity cuts Wednesday in order to secure funds from the European Union to bail out Spain's failing banks, the people of Spain have taken to the streets once again for what they call "Real Democracy Now." This comes a week after the government announced it was launching a criminal investigation into the former CEO of Spain's fourth-largest bank, Bankia. Rodrigo Rato is no small fish: Before running Bankia he was head of the International Monetary Fund. What the U.S. media don't tell you is that this official government investigation was initiated by grassroots action.


The Occupy movement in Spain is called M-15, for the day it began, May 15, 2011. I met with one of the key organizers in Madrid last week on the day the Rato investigation was announced. He smiled, and said, "Something is starting to happen." The organizer, Stephane Grueso, is an activist filmmaker who is making a documentary about the May 15 movement. He is a talented professional, but, like 25 per cent of the Spanish population, he is unemployed: "We didn't like what we were seeing, where we were going. We felt we were losing our democracy, we were losing our country, we were losing our way of life. ... We had one slogan: 'Democracia real YA!' -- we want a 'real democracy, now!' Fifty people stayed overnight in Puerta del Sol, this public square. And then the police tried to take us out, and so we came back. And then this thing began to multiply in other cities in Spain. In three, four days' time, we were like tens of thousands of people in dozens of cities in Spain, camped in the middle of the city -- a little bit like we saw in Tahrir in Egypt." (continues)
