Madrid, 'indignados' back to the streets

New day of protest, joyous and peaceful, in Madrid. Six-speed gearbox, called the Movement 15-M have been through the capital, directed towards the Plaza de Neptuno, near the Parliament, to protest against austerity measures and seek a general strike. A human tide invades Madrid.  The summer heat did not stop thousands of protesters of every age, many young people but also families with children who have begun to march, according to assembly points, the first time in the morning , chanting slogans and hoisting posters ('Let us walk together against the crisis and capital', 'listen to the anger of the people', 'It's called democracy and it is not').

The M-15 movement takes its name from the date, May 15 last year, where the protests took place in the main square of Puerta del Sol, in the heart of Madrid.
