“Nobody expected the “Spanishrevolutio“
The 2011 Spanish protests, also referred to as the 15-M Movement, the Indignants movement or the Spanish revolution
Take The Square was born from the demonstration on May 15, 2011 in Madrid. The demonstration called from the association Democracia Real Ya (Real Democracy Now), was the prelude of a new movement that was about to emerge. Once the demonstration was finished, some of those attending decided spontaneously and independently of the organizers, that a demonstration was not enough, so they decided to camp in the main square of Madrid (Puerta del Sol), thus starting a new project in the history of mankind.
The idea of camping in the square 1) as a way of demonstrating against a dominant and oppressive system, lead by a political class working for banks and big corporations and 2) as a way to promote new initiatives of political, social, economical, artistic and cultural organization, generated the concept of “Take the Square”, original and essential sign of the #15M movement. That concept was created in the camp of Madrid (AcampadaSol) and then exported to the rest of the cities of Spain and the world.
