Share/Bookmark

May 18, the demonstrators had been at Puerta del Sol in the Spanish capital Madrid, which is the biggest one of the series of unexpected events held by Spanish young people throughout the country. Since Sunday, the students, all aged in their 20s, and unemployed people in dozens of cities in Spain, held protests through Twitter, Facebook and other sites for contact and coordination. The main purpose of the protest is against the unemployment rate of Spanish young people which is up to 40% and the tightening that the government has been following which is to end the debt crisis.
