Back to the Streets on May at Barcelona


The May 15th 2011, millions of people started a process of social change, giving a clear and unmistakable signal that we are not merchandise in the hands of politicians and bankers, we have been publicly and massively expressing that the representative democracy is dying. The political class have not understood the message. Despite the growing protests and the outcry of upset people, these ruling classes are using this crisis to plunder the common wealth, risking the lives of people.

Capitalism has decided to cancel democracy and now the bankers rule us. Clearly, this 1% of the population is the legalized crime in power. The current political system leads us to disaster and we have to be the 99% who take the helm of our destiny. We demand a constituent power to recover the sovereignty that belongs to us. Therefore, on May 12th and 15th, after a 2 years protesting, we return to the streets with legitimate demands and we will continue building the alternatives.

Face to repression and blockades imposed on us from the institutions we will require a list of minimum points, since it is endangering the integrity of population with inhumane measures.

In order to guarantee the right to the existence of  the 99%, we demand:

1. Not a single euro to rescue the banks. Citizen Audit of debt. We will not pay illegitimate debt created by those who caused the crisis.

2. Public, free and a quality Education and Health Care System. No cuts in welfare, not to the privatization of public services. Not repayment.

3. Fair distribution of job and wealth. Not to the precariousness. No retirement at 67. Removal of the Labor Reform. Assessment of reproductive work, domestic and care.

4. Guaranteed right on access to adequate housing. Retroactive dation in payment. Social rental housing. Promotion of housing cooperatives.

5. Tax reform that allows fairly redistribute the wealth that we produce among all.  Basic Income for everyone.

6. Protection of the rights of assembly, demonstration, strikes, association and all civil liberties including the right to your own body.


Therefore, on May 12th and 15th we have been organized demonstrations everywhere and a consumer strike.

15/8 Figueres: 3 meses de 15M (AD team)

Por la mañana nos despertamos oyendo las voces de la asamblea de marchantes otra vez, que organizaba las etapas Bisbal-Figueres. Querían tener unos días de descanso en esos días, y querían hacer la ruto en tren, coche, caminando o en autostop. El equipo de cocina había preparado un desyuno muy bueno, y la gente iba arreglando sus cosas para meterlas en las furgonetas, y limpiando el espacio que el ayuntamiento les había cedido al lado de la piscina municipal. Por la noche algunos se habían colado para meterse en la piscina, pero el agua estaba muy fría.

Estas asambleas suelen ser bastante intensas, hay algunos problemas de convivencia debido a las dificultades del viaje y a que el grupo no se conoce tanto, pero resultan un buen ejercicio para el sistema asambleario y para aprender a solucionar los problemas de otra manera. Los participantes de las marchas se están convirtiendo en expertos en consenso y en asamblearismo, gracias también a algunos compañeros que tienen más experiencia en esos temas y pero sobre todo gracias a la práctica cotidiana.
