Juventud Sin Futuro: Big Demonstration In Madrid And Other Cities

11 Apr

Last Friday there took place the first day of action of the new precarious and students movement, Juventud Sin Futuro (“Youth without a future”). More tha  3000 people demonstrating in Madrid against the social cuts and the precarious situation of the youth in the Spanish State. Other actions and demonstrations were made all around the country in an event that looks like the begining of a big social movement.

The main claims during the demonstration were:

“What happens?, that we’ve not home”
“We are not going to pay for your crisis”
“Here is the precarious Youth”
“A, Anti, Anticapitalista”
“If we are the future, why are you fuking us?”.

After the demonstrations some people cut with barricades the main avenue “Paseo del Prado”. In that moment the police come to break up the spontaneus “Reclaim the streets” and at least 13 people were arrested and hurt.

Here you can find some videos and photos that appeared on mainstream and alternative media (in Spanish):
