For the past few years there has been unrest on the Spanish streets.  From the smallest to the biggest, from peaceful to violent – the demonstrations are multiplying. They include people from all walks of life,  from the lower class and middle classes.  Those affected by mortgage scandles, small savers, students, workers, public servants and the unemployed, all of them , speaking out against the system.  The government and the banks are their preferred targets and not without reason - since 2008 everyday life for the Spanish has gone from bad to worse. The situation for many families has become unsustainable, and many see remedy in street protests and solidarity.  In Spain, there is a real political crisis taking place between the power and the people.
