“If you don’t let us dream, we won’t let you sleep,” angry young citizens had warned the plant on May 17th the alternative camp in the great square of the “Kilometer Zero” Spanish in the heart of the capital.
Nearly a month later, despite an uncertain future, the “outraged” announced new measures, especially a national day on June 19th.
“We will continue working. The square will continue to be used as a place of meetings. We will also continue using the Internet. By day 19th, all the cities and suburbs have proposed a merger at the national level,” said Mark Quesada, a 19 year-old law student.
The protesters have built at the Puerta del Sol, a structure where “there’s going to be an information point, to keep alive the sun symbol,” said Irene Rodriguez.
The movement grew spontaneously on May 15th in a demonstration of citizens whose aims were different: the unemployment that affects more than 4 million Spanish and nearly half of those people, against politicians accused of cynicism and corruption. Against the banks and the abuses of capitalism. Thanks to social networks, the libertarian movement spread throughout the country, where they flourished camps in public places in dozens of cities and towns.
“That will bring us proposals that they have collected 500,000 signatures, and then examine them,” said a government official.
