Los Indignados: Tides of Social Insertion in Spain


Friday, April 20, 2018, 5:15pm to 6:15pm


RCC Conference Room, 26 Trowbridge St., Cambridge MA

The emergent Indignados movement in Spain is transforming Spanish politics and society, heralding an end to the Transition since Franco, and responding to multiple legitimation crises in Spain and in Europe. This movement is rooted in the Stop Evictions campaign led by Ada Colau in Barcelona following the bursting of the subprime mortgage bubble in the wake of the 2008; as well as the 15-M Movement arising in May 2011 Puerta del Sol of Madrid, symbolizing the Indignez-Vous outrage of a lost generation.
