This short film chronicles recent events in Spain where hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets to demand the resignation of the government and an end to police brutality. Many of the protests ended in clashes with the police. Since the stand off began on September 25th, the images of police brutality have travelled the world over, shocking and inspiring people across Europe and leading to an international day of action on September 29th. This film tells the story of why so many people took to the streets and follows these events as they unfolded.

#S25: Rodea el Congreso

A new tactic of global resistance is emerging: "Surround the Congress." Following #25S, when thousands of protestors converged on Spain's parliament building in Madrid to denounce austerity and the kidnapping of popular sovereignty by the Troika and the Markets, similar actions will take place Saturday September 29th across Spain and in a number of European capitals, including Rome, Lisbon, London, Brussels, and Amsterdam. With momentum behind the new tactic growing, AdBusters has called for an October 31 "Halloween Party" on Capitol Hill.

Events are organizing quickly: connect with your local networks to get involved! See here for even more upcoming anti-austerity mobilizations.
