It all started on May 15 2011. Tens of thousands of people manifested in Madrid and in other Spanish cities. Students, unemployed people and workers on the poverty line, all filled with the same indignation.
Although the mobilization united Spaniards of all ages, the majority of the protesters were young people directly affected by the crisis.
The protesters demanded more transparency in the political party funding system. They primarily asked the government to focus on young people's unemployment, one of the highest in Europe. An entire generation feels excluded and demonstrates since 2011 for a “real democracy”.
