    Pasadas las cinco de la mañana de ayer la policía de Madrid comenzó el desalojo en la Puerta del Sol. El plantón se instaló para exigir el acceso a salud, educación, empleo y en repudio a los políticos. Campamentos similares se instalaron en plazas de casi toda España

    Madrid, 17 de mayo. Varios miles de personas se mantenían esta noche en la Puerta del Sol en Madrid, de donde la policía desalojó la madrugada de este martes a decenas de ciudadanos "indignados" que participaban en el campamento instalado el lunes para expresar su hartazgo de la clase política y las injusticias estructurales del modelo económico. Las movilizaciones ya se extendieron a 60 ciudades españolas.

    "Nuestra lucha es pacífica, honesta y justificada. Somos el pueblo y tenemos derecho a expresarnos", advertían los manifestantes mientras se escuchaba sin cesar una advertencia: "ha comenzado la revolución".

    La protesta que inició el pasado domingo con 50 marchas tras la convocatoria de la plataforma Democracia Real Ya ha vuelto a movilizar a decenas de miles de personas en menos de 48 horas. Si el domingo más de 120 mil salieron a la calle a expresar su "indignación" por la falta de oportunidades, el aumento de la tasa de desempleo, la corrupción y los vicios de la clase política, dos días después esa efervescencia popular aumentó sensiblemente y se convierte en el protagonista de la campaña electoral abierta en el país para elegir municipios, autonomías y diputaciones forales el próximo domingo 22.

    La policía nacional, por orden del Ministerio del Interior, y por tanto el gobierno del socialista José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, inició esta madrugada un operativo de desalojo del plantón pacífico y reivindicativo en la Puerta del Sol. A las cinco y media de la madrugada, cuando los jóvenes dormían apretujados, los agentes empezaron a despertar a cada uno a empujones y a los que se resistían a desalojar la zona se los llevaron fuera de la plaza. Incluso emplearon la violencia con al menos una persona, que después fue detenida por el supuesto delito de agresión a la autoridad.

    Los jóvenes que acampaban exigen derechos básicos como vivienda y empleo –España tiene la tasa de desempleo juvenil más alta de la Unión Europea con 43 por ciento– además de la liberación de los detenidos el pasado domingo en las manifestaciones.

    Tras el desalojo, la nueva red ciudadana de "indignados" decidió convocar una serie de marchas, plantones y campamentos que tuvieron eco en 60 ciudades. Pero sin duda el centro neurálgico de las movilizaciones fue Madrid, donde a partir de las siete de la tarde empezaron a llegar jóvenes, ancianos, niños, profesionistas sin empleo e incluso trabajadores hastiados de la precariedad laboral y los bajos salarios. A las ocho de la noche ya había más de 15 mil personas aplaudiendo y gritando consignas contra la actual democracia, los partidos políticos, los banqueros y los medios de comunicación de masas, sobre todo contra Telemadrid –la emisora pública local–, a la que acusaron de "manipulación".

    Madrid, May 17. Several thousand people were held tonight at the Puerta del Sol in Madrid, where the police had evacuated in the early hours of Tuesday, dozens of "outraged" people that participated in the camp set up on Monday to express their weariness of the political class and structural injustices in the economic model. The mobilizations extended to 60 different Spanish cities.

    "Our struggle is peaceful, fair and justified. We are the people and have a right to express ourselves," warned the demonstrators while constantly shouting a warning: "The revolution has begun."

    The protest that began last Sunday with 50 people following the call for Real Democracy platform has already returned to mobilize tens of thousands of people in less than 48 hours. Sunday more than 120 thousand took to the streets to express their "indignation" over the lack of opportunities, increasing unemployment, corruption and vices of the political class, two days after the popular excitement increased significantly and becomes the protagonist of the electoral campaign in the country open to select municipalities, autonomous regions and provincial councils on Sunday 22.

    The national police, by order of the Ministry of Interior, and therefore the socialist government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, began this morning an operation to evict the peaceful sit-in protest in the Puerta del Sol at five-thirty in the morning, when young people slept, the officers began to wake up each one and pushed those who refused to evacuate, outside the square. Even using violence on at least one person, who was later arrested for the crime of aggression to the authority.

    Young people who camped demand basic rights such as housing and employment plus the release of those detained on Sunday in the protests. Spain has the highest youth unemployment rate in the European Union with 43 percent.
    After the eviction, the new "outraged"citizens networked to convene a series of marches, sit-ins and camps that were echoed in 60 cities. But surely the heart of the demonstrations was Madrid, where after seven p.m. all walks of people started coming, young, elderly, children, professionals and even unemployed workers weary of job insecurity and low wages. At eight o'clock at night there were over 15 thousand people cheering and shouting slogans against the current "democracy", political parties, the bankers and the mass media, especially against the local public broadcaster Telemadrid, which they accused of "manipulation."

    I concur with the Greek view....however any popular uprising in Madrid with those kind of numbers has a great potential to manifest itself into a more radical approach as we've seen in London and Wisconsin....

    i agree, time will tell, although the rhetoric around these events by some ppls, like 'a revolution is gunna happen in Spain', is very, very preemptive. The Spanish Revolution failed even with a very conscious and militant working class, including a CNT with 1.58 million members and numerous armed insurrections in various locations. Times may have changed, but a few thousand ppl sitting in a square doesn't to me appear to be capable of revolution, especially when the demands made (so far) are largely reformist bollocks.

    i kinda wish to amend my last post, I'd drop the word 'bollocks' from 'reformist bollocks'.
    There's nothing wrong with 'reformist' activism (the 8 hour day, anti-poll tax, as two examples that come to mind), but yeah, we should remember that that's what they are, reformist demands. If you aren't organising to smash capitalism, overthrow the state and implement Libertarian Communism, than you probably won't...
    Having said that, realising the power we have collectively can help radicalise people, as can, unfortunately, the experiences/reports of non-violent Liberal protestors getting their heads kicked in by the pigs.

    La policía francesa reprime con gases lacrimógenos a los indignados de París

    [​IMG]
    Plaza De La Bastille - Paris

    [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tF1DG6HlfWA&feature=player_embedded[/video]

    La policía francesa utilizó este domingo gases lacrimógenos para desalojar a los manifestantes que desde hace varios días se habían concentrado en la parisiense plaza de la Bastilla en solidaridad con los indignados de España, informó la emisora France Info.

    Los agentes utilizaron gases lacrimógenos mientras las personas que llevaban concentradas en el lugar desde hace varios días pedían “refuerzos” a través de las redes sociales como twiter.

    Según fuentes policiales, hasta un millar de personas se concentraban en el lugar cuando se produjo la intervención de los agentes antidisturbios franceses.
    Campamento desmontado por la Policía

    Los manifestantes habían instalado tiendas de campaña similares a las que estos días podían verse en la madrileña Puerta del Sol.

    El campamento fue desmontado por los agentes en el día en el que más número de personas lograron congregar.

    Las manifestaciones de indignados en Francia comenzaron el pasado día 19 y tomaron la plaza de la Bastilla como emblemático lugar de reunión, donde, a imagen de lo que sucedía en España, crearon comisiones para organizarse.
