One year after, Indignados are back to the streets of Spain

Politics Madrid, Spain - 15 May 2011

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.
