Watch, read and listen to Democracy Now! reports on Spain, which has been wracked by the global recession. Bank foreclosures on homes are rampant, leaving people homeless but still required to pay the entire mortgage, leading to many suicides. In the midst of this financial ruin, we have reported on the grassroots movement some call “the Indignados,” the Indignant Ones, from which a political party was founded called “Podemos.” See our interview with their secretary general, Pablo Iglesias, a political science professor and activist who could become the country’s next prime minister if his anti-austerity party wins the national elections later this year.
We rely on contributions from our viewers and listeners to do our work.
