Spain's 'Indignados' Mark One Year Of Protest

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. Since the Spanish youngsters first occupied a central Madrid square last year, much has changed in Spain. The Socialist government was trounced in elections late last year, and now ruling conservatives have implemented harsh austerity measures. Youth unemployment is over 50 percent. And the indignados have returned, saying they have even more to complain about.
