THOUSANDS of protesters gathered in cities across Spain over the weekend to mark the one year anniversary of 15M.

The so-called ‘indignant’ called for 96 hours of continuous protest to culminate at the Puerta del Sol in Madrid on Tuesday where the movement was founded exactly one year ago.

In a tug-of-war with police 150 people who had camped out in the Puerta del Sol were moved on in the early hours of Tuesday morning for the third consecutive night.

But they soon retook the square.

The initial protest against Spain’s economic crisis and the government’s inability to deal with it spawned a global movement that has continued to gain momentum.
