15-M movement Madrid Spain MarchaIndignada: Indignados Re-Occupy Puerta del Sol



23rd July Indignados re-occupy Puerta del Sol: around 20 thousand people at Puerta del Sol, Madrid #solrenace #spanishrevolution #globalrevolution

The arrival of the marches at Puerta del Sol was supported for tens of thousands of people and followed by various activities. #Marchaindignada, the Outraged March (or March of the Indignants) was quite successful and after around one month on the road, different groups of the various regions of Spain got to finally arrive at Puerta del Sol, promoting a moment of solidarity, unity and genuine enthusiasm:

On Saturday, the popular marches of the indignant arrived in Madrid — and took back the square.

On Saturday, the indignados brought much of Madrid to a standstill as the popular marches arrived in the city, taking six different routes from all over the country and culminating in a spectacular re-occupation of Puerta del Sol by tens of thousands of protesters.

And so, a month and a half after the original protest camp was broken down, Sol looks like Sol again. With an incredible degree of professionalism, the indignados set up a TV and radio studio, a communications center, a major kitchen, a sound installation, a clinic and more — all in one night.

Some of the marchers had been walking for over 500 kilometers as part of a campaign to spread awareness about the 15-M movement and its demands to the Spanish countryside and to hold popular assemblies with people who otherwise have little opportunity to participate given their geographic location.

The marches received a warm welcome from thousands of indignados and sympathizers as they arrived in Puerta del Sol from six different angles. In the evening, a major popular assembly was held which was closed off with live music. Today, tens of thousands are expected to take to the streets again for a major march through Madrid.

Also, in a sign that the movement is rapidly maturing into a serious platform for civic engagement and political activism, the 15-M movement has scheduled it’s first Social Forum for Monday.



Sol Square, 23 J. The marches arrive from all Spain. #Europeanrevolution #Globalrevolution #Spanishrevolution #mpi23J

  1. M-15 movement, you were an inspiration to me when I visited Mardid in May. I am now writing from Yafa, the Arab part of Tel Aviv. We need your help! The movement here is growing fast and tens of thousands are taking part all over the country. We would like to quickly and urgently learn from your experience in the popular committees that you formed to discuss and make recommendations on the various issues you chose for short, mid and long term. If anyone can help me please e-mail me at pshift70@gmail.com.

    Muchas gracias, !ya basta! and global citizenship solidarity.
