Play associated audio
Tens of thousands of protesters took to Spain's streets to mark the one year anniversary of the indignados, or "angry ones" — a protest movement that inspired Occupy Wall Street and other grassroots movements.

And the indignados have returned, saying they have even more to complain about.
