One year after the start of the Indignados Revolution in Spain, protesters are back to the streets on Saturday May 12, 2012.
In May 2011, citizens protesting at Plaza de Sol in Madrid against Spain's two-party political system were evicted from the plaza by authorities. The next day, tens of thousands showed up to protest and show their support for the revolution. These are original photos of the revolution shot between May and June 2011, in Madrid, Spain.

On May 15, 2011 a small group of citizens demonstrating against the Spanish two-party politics in the Plaza del Sol in Madrid. After being evicted from the square, the next day hundreds of thousands of people took the place as an icon of a revolution. This is a graphic report on the month (16-5-2011 to 16-6-2011) of demonstrations, meetings and camping among citizens who made history. This weekend marks the anniversary with new manifestations.
