Puerta del Sol 2011 Protests, Madrid #acampadasol M-20

Occupy Madrid 15-20th October 2011
Madrid started their protest on the 15th of October and continues. This video was taken a few minutes before midnight, when the protests were to be declared illegal by the Spanish government.

Thousands of people still occupy Madrid's main square, Puerta del Sol, after several days of protest about the government's poor political engagement with the electorate.

It is being referred to as the beginning of a movement in a country that has a youth unemployment rate of up to 45%.

Spain holds regional and municipal elections this Sunday, and campaigners want to be part of the political debate, saying their voices are not being heard.

The occupation of Madrid's Sol, and the centers of 50 other Spanish towns and cities.
