Los Indignados clangs away on 15M anniversary with cacerolada

News Madrid, Spain - 15 May 2012

Los Indignados commemorating the "15M" movement in Madrid, Spain, ended their four-day protest on Los Indignados' first birthday, May 15, 2012.

They clanged away on pots and pans as a part of their cacerolada (a protest where demonstrators make as much noise as possible on cooking utensils) in the Puerta del Sol. More than 2,000 protestors gathered under the sun and showed their solidarity by making noise and shouting slogans together.

Even on Twitter, Los Indignados made a loud presence by the hashtags #clangclangclang and #15M. The 15M movement begun by Los Indignados (In English, literally, "the outraged" or, "the indignant ones") has gained popularity.

Many Spaniards do not like the austerity measures that have been taken against them and blame high unemployment rates on those measures taken out by the Spanish government and the European Union.
