Niece Elise in Paris!

Protesters at Plaça Catalunya in Barcelona.  They’ve been camping out at night and demonstrating by day, with flyers everywhere, petitions, information desks…  Mostly they’re students about my age, protesting the financial crisis and calling for more economic opportunities, lower education costs, and general social improvements. 

"Dubbed the ‘movimiento 15-M’ (‘May 15th movement’) and ‘los indignados’ (the angry ones), the protesters have made formidable use of social media to promote their campaign. Protesters are using the Twitter hashtags #acampadasol and #spanishrevolution to highlight what is going on minute by minute."
