“Who are we?” “What do we want?” The leaders of the 15-M movement speak.
Who are the indignados? What are they protesting against? What do they want? This book answers these and other questions in the voices of four committed 15-M activists. On the 15th of May 2011, a call sent out on social networks united thousands of people in close to sixty Spanish cities. That same night, many camped out in plazas, ﬁring the starting gun for the most universal and peaceful protest in Spain in recent decades. But how did it all begin? No union or political party unleashed the #spanishrevolution, whose effects have yet to be assessed. It was anonymous citizens, some of whom, some of the ﬁrst indignados – the expression created by Stéphane Hessel that lends them unity and an identity – here set out their reasoning and proposals for the future.
