|Spanish demonstrators attacked by police|
Tens of thousands of Spaniards have filled the main squares of Spain’s cities since May 15 in a wave of anger over economic stagnation, growing unemployment and government austerity measures. They have dubbed themselves as The Outraged (Los Indignados).
The camp, that had been cleared in the morning raid in detriment of the protesters, has since then been retaken by los indignados and thousands of their supporters who hurried to the plaza in response to the appeal issued over the social networks for friends to come and defend the camping site. Outnumbered by protesters, the police withdrew and, according to eyewitnesses, by 1:00 in the afternoon (local time), there were around 9 000 demonstrators at the plaza with renewed outrage.
