Protesters once again filled Madrid’s Puerta del Sol square on Sunday night, this time calling for the release of around 18 of their number, detained by police in the early hours.
The so called “indignados” have been marking the first anniversary of their movement, set up out of anger at the impact of Spain’s economic crisis.
Spain’s government has vowed not to allow a repeat of the scenes last year when the protesters occupied the square for weeks. However the indignados have called for more demonstrations today and Tuesday, continuing their denouncement of the government’s handling of the economy which has fallen back into recession.
