Thousands Mark 5th Anniversary of Indignados Movement in Spain

Madrid, May 16 (RHC)-- In Spain, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets to mark the fifth anniversary of the Indignados movement. 

On May 15, 2011, the mass movement erupted against unemployment, austerity, the big banks and the political system in general.  The Indignados helped inspire the Occupy movement of the United States and the emergence of the political party Podemos.

The protest comes as Spain heads for new elections next month, following a political deadlock after December elections resulted in a Parliament divided between Podemos, the Socialists and the ruling People’s Party.
