Madrid Spain is on the brink as people by the tens of thousands hit the streets because the people are paying the consequences for the bankers and the politicians.

Despite the slanderous propaganda you may have heard from corporate media outlets this mini-documentary tells you here directly from the mouths of the protestors why they are on the streets.

The overwhelming response is they are demanding democracy, for their voice to be heard, in a system that has long ignored the people to serve the corporations, specials interests and lobbyists that Spain politicians are beholden to.

No matter what country you are from this certainly sounds familiar.
