      The current situation in Spain is complicated. We have reached unemployment rates never before seen, with about 20% of the population, youth unemployment exceeds 35%, this being about 5 million unemployed! The policy of social cuts and job insecurity increases youth unemployment rate above 40% (the highest in Europe) makes the generation prepared in the history of Spain will live worse than their parents. 
At the economic level should be stressed that the Spanish economy has been based on real estate, aggravating the economic dependence from 1998 following the approval of the Land Act and whose consequences are still suffering. This boom has led to the invasion and exploitation of coastal areas as well as the rural and natural areas, ignoring environmental laws. 

      Electoral Law: The electoral law in Spain divides the country into electoral regions where voting is not proportional or regional level or state level, where some provinces have more political power so that not respect the rule of "one person, one vote ". 
Apart from this, the electoral lists are closed and can not choose the candidates so you're forced to vote for a closed list. This is compounded by the inoperability of the chamber of territorial representation, the Senate. 
The measures undertaken during the economic boom: 

      1. tax cuts in times of economic expansion, with Spain being one of the countries of the EU-15 with a lower tax burden. The problem with this measure is that it does not have filled state coffers and, once immersed in the crisis, we could not cope with the situation that we fell on top; 

      2. In this fiscal context, it is also deleted or modified to lower direct taxes - income tax, corporation tax, wealth tax, inheritance and gift tax, and at the same time, increased indirect taxes - VAT, Tax Hydrocarbons, snuff and alcohol -. Not to mention the taxes that have risen are taxes that fall on anyone without discrimination of income and those who have fallen are taxes that affect only the upper classes ... 

      3. The reform became cheaper labor costs of dismissal under the slogan that this would encourage the permanent recruitment and decrease the part-time employment.Obviously still do not feel these benefits and now we have gone from 30/45 days per year worked (unfair dismissal) to 20 days per year worked. 

      4. Stalled the implementation of the Law Unit and removed the baby check. 

      5. Reduced salaries and wages of public workers. It is noteworthy that in this group there are not only employees, but workers with permanent contracts, temporary contracts and trainees. And while all these measures were carried out, no cuts were applied to any political or compensatory measures were applied for the pension-contribution-a single worker. 

      6. Approval of the 2015 University Plan, which among other things, proposes that the main decisions of the Spanish universities are no longer taken by a democratically elected rector team, but by a board of renowned experts and the business sector, among others . This what will be done is that access to university education is more elitist and more expensive. Companies become universities in setting aside the quality of education. 

      7. It also froze pensions, against the provisions of the Toledo Pact - an agreement by consensus among all political parties. Have not only made the minimum pension, but these are very low. € 531. 

      8. He took out a pension reform. This reform is the extension of the period of pension contributions, and uses a greater number of years for calculating the pension. When these years are blank is counted only half the minimum wage. This action primarily harms women to reconcile work and family life. Also, with the current reform of the early years of contributions lose weight for the latter, which hurts those quote racing groups with short and those entering the labor market later. On the other hand, in 2006 undertook a reform in which the bonuses were excluded from the pension contribution. 

      9. Recently approved reform of collective bargaining. This reform eliminates the action of trade unions in negotiating agreements. Being more exposed to the worker when negotiating with your company. 

The movement in Spain came not from an organized manner. There were many groups that had long been requesting changes, and denouncing the political and economic situation (and real democracy, youth without a future, malaise, not votes, ...), but all aspects of claiming an improvement of society with a common goal . For example, the concern and indignation of society by the political, economic and social welfare, and corruption of politicians, businessmen, bankers ... In the helplessness of ordinary people. 
The 15M was a demonstration by DRY, without political overtones in over 50 cities and whose motto was "We are not tools in the hands of politicians and bankers." The main points of indignation of society were the political landscape, economic and social and corruption of politicians, businessmen, bankers ... In the helplessness of ordinary people. Crisis, bipartisanship, bankers, corruption and unemployment. 
Was massive public support, backed by social networks and Twitter, where people have been reporting in alternative media on traditional media which is not echoed. 
Following this demonstration, 17 spontaneously began camping and take seats in an attempt to raise consciousness and restore the street as a place for meeting and socializing citizens. 

Some media groups that attack the movement have been identified with "perroflautas," young hippies who refuse to work or study. But this strategy has not influenced the widespread support of the society this movement. 


      In acampadasalamanca operate through three work areas are communication, organization and outreach. These areas are divided into committees. The communication area is divided in the commission of internal and external communications, responsible for the dissemination of information to make internal and external. 
The staging area is divided into the logistics committee in charge of the troops, Health assemblies, which regulates the operation of meetings and debate, devoted to deeper issues. 
The extension area is split in the commission of projects which make contact with neighborhood associations, neighborhood committee that is responsible for spreading the movement throughout the city and the commission of evictions, which is responsible for making a database with affected people and create a support network for them. 
We also have some working groups that cut across all the committees: 
 Sociocultural, hacklab, legal and environmental issues. 


      The main goal for the future of the movement is the extension to the neighborhoods and the creation of an organizational basis, in order to improve the flow of proposals and work, and therefore, awareness of the population and different age groups towhich has not yet been reached. The stabilization of the movement and work are the main bases for the future of the movement in Salamanca, because with this, we are confident that the rest will go back. 
At the state level, coordination with other camping is another important future as to achieve a common good we must work together. Stress + Work = Future. 


      In Salamanca, as in all cities in Spain where there is movement, met and coordinated a number of issues that we believe should be improved. Currently, requests are not the same in all cities, it has reached a similar minimum consensus on all camping, with the aim also to bring together as many people as possible regardless of the ideologies of each. The minimum consensus corresponds to the first 3 proposals.

        Belgium Committee (Brussels and Namur)

        (here is the original french text )
        A tous présents et à venir,
        L’ Insurrection est là ! De nombreux peuples de par le monde se soulèvent déjà. Le combat contre les puissants, contre les maîtres est engagé. Nous affirmons et exerçons notre droit immuable à nous soulever contre la tyrannie, à mettre bas ses lois injustes et sa justice illégale.
        Nous ne sommes pas « les Indigné-e-s », mais sommes indignés par la manière irresponsable dont l’on gère le Monde. Nous ne voulons plus de la gestion des ressources qui nous rend bétail humain.
        Nous avons vu l’insurrection, nous l’avons caressée et elle nous a touchés, nous en sommes aujourd’hui chacun le visage. Le temps est venu de mettre en forme nos devenirs, de transformer nos formes d’existence. Que chacun exprime l’indignation que lui inspire l’ordre du monde! Et prenons à cœur d’informer de ce que nous vivons.
        Où que vous soyez, nous vous appelons, nous nous appelons à occuper l’espace, public et virtuel, pour reprendre concrètement la parole. Nous appelons à former ensemble le cercle populaire, lieu de convergence de nos désirs de vies.
        Nos hommes-dit-politiques et gouvernants économiques sont en passe de détruire la planète. Les cycles de la Nature sont perturbés à jamais. Le désert et la guerre s’immiscent jusqu’au plus profond de nos êtres. Agissons localement en pensant globalement. Prenons toute la mesure de notre empreinte individuelle. Des interstices, insertions, qui façonnent le globe, sontnos traces! Agissons globalement en pensant localement. Nous sommes convaincus que chacun d’entre nous est peuplé d’une multitude. Je est un Autre.
        Tâchons de rendre sensible et concret notre désir de solidarité, et ce tant envers notre voisin que notre frère du bout du monde. Retissons les liens qui nous unissent. Attelons-nous à la mise en place d’une société de liens chauds, de liens forts. N’acceptons plus de nous retrancher derrière les médiations qui régissent aujourd’hui nos vies.
        Nous appelons à faire sécession, à s’insurger contre l’ordre établi. Dénonçons les fausses démocraties et les dictatures, engageons la lutte, détruisons les outils qui nous asservissent, prenons les usines, bloquons les flux de marchandises, partons en grève totale, humaine, refusons d’acquitter l’impôt, désertons les banques mortifères, questionnons l’argent, refusons l’esclavage qui nous est imposé. Partout où se dresse l’injustice, répondons par la désobéissance civile. Reprenons notre autonomie. Que l’auto-détermination de chacun soit assurée afin que chacun puisse accomplir et se réaliser pleinement.
        Nous appelons à mettre en œuvre, ici, partout et maintenant, des zones de gratuité dans les communautés de vies. Nous enjoignons à repenser les termes de l’échange marchand et à reconsidérer la monnaie. Mettons ensemble nos énergies pour que notre économie soit celle du don, de l’échange libre. Acceptons que recevoir, c’est aussi savoir partager. Diffusons librement et largement les connaissances, techniques et théoriques. Réapprenons la symbiose entre l’Homme et la Nature et récoltons-en les fruits.
        Nous appelons les peuples du monde à conjurer ensemble l’infamie. Profitons de l’assemblée populaire pour nous poser en Constituant.
        Mais avant, pendant ou après, il nous faudra couper la tête du serpent.
        Assemblons-nous pour affirmer notre volonté de changement et pour vivre ensemble son avènement. Portons toutes les formes de lutte à un degré d’intensité supérieur. Ici, à Bruxelles, est ressentie et s’affiche toute l’injustice et l’iniquité du Système-Monde. Comme ailleurs. Mais s’y trouve le serpent. Plus que partout ailleurs.
        Hommes et Femmes Libres, nous vous invitons à converger vers Bruxelles pour ce monde qui émerge. Vous y serez accueillis en frère, et sœur. Nous ne serons jamais de trop.
        Amis, rencontrons nous. Que cet été soit le plus beau du monde.
        Des indignés insurgés.

        (and here is our translation, that in my point of view is not has good has the original text in french)
        the Appeal of Brussels
        To whom it may concern, for now or later,
        Insurgeance is happening ! All over the world, people are standing up already. . The struggle against the powerful, the leaders has started. We affirm our unmodifiable right to stand upi against tyranny, to tear down its unlawful laws and its illegal justice.
        We are nt the « outraged », but we are outraged by the irresponsible ways the world is being ruled. We no longer accept the management of our ressources that turns us int human cattle.
        We witnessed the insurgeance, we fondled it, and today we are each of us the face of it.. Time has come to give shape to what we will become, to transform our forms of existence. May each person express their indignation that the world order inspires them! Let us take to heart to inform about what we are going through.
        Wherever you may be,we call upon you, we call upon us to occupy the public and virtual space in order to concretely take our freedom of speech. We call upon everybody to create the circle of speech, a space where our living desires converge.
        Our so-called politicians and economic leaders are on their way to destroy the planet. Natural cycles are forever disrupted. Deserts and war are deeply intertwined with our being . Let us act locally and think globally. Let us take the measure of our individual footprints. The cracks, insertions, that shape the globe are our traces! Let us act globally and think locally. We are convinced that each of us is inhabited by a multitude. « Je est un autre ».
        Let us try to make our wish for solidarity sensible and tangible, towards our neighbour or as well as our brother on the other side of the planet. Let us reconnect by what unites us. Let us work together towards a society with warm and strong connections. Let us no longer hide behind the mediations that rule our lives today.
        We call for secession and insurgeance against the establishment.
        Let us name the fake democracies and dictatorships, let us stand up and fight, to destroy the tools that make us servants, let us occupy the factories and block the flow of merchandises, let us go on massive strikes, human strikes, let us refuse to pay our taxes, let us abandon mortifying banks, Let us question money, let us refuse the slavery that is forced upon us. Wherever there is injustice, let us respond with civil disobedience. Let us take back our autonomy. May the auto-détermination of each of us be assured so that each person may come to full accomplishment and realisation.
        We call for the establishment of paylessness zones in life communities here, everywhere and now, Join us to rethink the concept of commercial exchange and t reconsider money. Let our energies be joined in order to base our economy on gift and free exchange. Let us accept that receiving is also being able to share. Let us freely and widely spread knowledge, technique and theory. Let us be recalled about the symbiotic link between man and nature. May this relationship be fruitful again.
        We call upon the peoples of the world to conjure the infamous. Let us benefit from popular gathering to rewrite Constitutions.
        But in the meanwhile we will have to chop off the snake’s head.
        Let us get together in order to express our desire for change and to witness its realisation together. Let us bring all our battles to a higher level of intensity. Here in Brussels all the injustice and the inequities of the World system are being felt and shown. Just like everywhere else. But the snake’s nest is here more than anywhere else.
        Free men and women, we invite you to get together in Brussels in order for our new emerging world to come to life. All of you will be welcomed like brothers and sisters. There is never too many of us.
        Friends, let us meet up. May this summer be the most beautiful summer in the world.

          INTERNATIONAL SUMMARY (+video links)

          July the 10th, 2011
          Livraria Ler Devagar, Lx Factory, Lisbon
          More that 130 activists of various nationalities took part on the 10th of July in the international meeting organized by the International Group of the movement “M19M/Democracia Verdadeira, Já” in the bookshop “Ler Devagar”.
          All the talks presented during more than six hours of discussion, focused on two main topics: Real Democracy and Austerity Plans. The participants described the present situation in various European countries and the social movements in their squares, their priorities, their strategies of mobilization and protest, as well as proposal for new forms of democratic participation.
          Four activists from Greece, from the Group of International Support and Communication of Syntagma square, reported on the severe political, economical and social situation of their country and the mobilizations in their movement: a 48 hours general strike, the criminal and brutal police violence, the unsustainable austerity plans, the corruption of all the political parties, which are now considered “un-welcomed” in the movement since they represent the actual political system against which the movement is fighting, and finally the struggles in the long process of creating a “direct democracy”

          The Greek activists addressed also the problem of the debt, citizen audits, the interference of the IMF and the eventual suspension of the payment of a debt not contracted by citizens (although these topics are still under internal discussion). These ideas were also discussed in the presentations of the Icelandic activist Gunnar Sigurdsson of the “Open Civic Forum of Iceland” and of Stephanie Jacquemont, representative of the International Secretariat of the CADTM (Committee for the Abolition of Third World Debt). The latter two activists are clearly in favour of the use of citizen audits as a tool to increase direct and democratic participation, which has been already successfully employed by several countries,  and that stems from the idea of implementing a policy of transparency and business ethics on the debts incurred by the various countries.
          As the Icelandic activists stresses the questions we have to ask are simple: who made the financial transactions and the loans that led us to this debt? Where does this money go? And who has contracted this debt?

          Representatives of the Acampada de Salamanca - which has devoted particular attention to participation and activism in the neighbourhoods - denounced the present situation in Spain, especially with regard to the “real estate speculation”, the very high rates of youth unemployment,  the cuts in wages and social benefits, and the raises in indirect taxes. These activists brought three minimum consensus proposals approved in their Spanish camp, concerning a reform of the electoral law and of the political system, forms of participatory democracy as the uses of referendum, and the fight against corruption and the politicians’ privileges.

          The International Network Group On the road from the Acampada de Barcelona, one of the first to emerge and mobilize in Europe, presented the activities the group was involved in, as well as concrete proposals for mobilization: a discussion on the creation of a new Lisbon Treaty, an international campaign to transfer money to ethical banks and credit cooperatives and finally the creation of an International Group on the platform HYPERLINK "http://n-1.cc"nHYPERLINK "http://n-1.cc"-1.HYPERLINK "http://n-1.cc"cc where each international group from different countries could share experiences and proposals.

          The activists from the Acampadas de Mérida and Badajoz expressed their concern and strongly condemned the way in which political and economical authorities (among which the IMF) ignore the citizens’ rights and impose stifling economic measures. The banks (some of which are financed from the State) and the politicians - who use instruments of control like the companies, the media and the unions themselves - are identified as the ones responsible for this threatening situation. Because of this the activists called for a growing movement without borders.

          The activist who came from the Acampada of Brighton, in addition to reporting on the situation of the movement and the socio-economic landscape in England, denounced the weakness of a political system that calls itself democratic, but is based on a fictional idea of representation and consults its citizens only once every four years. Five points were highlighted: free education for all, transparency of the political and economical system, reform of the electoral system, participation in all government decisions and identification of those responsible for the financial crisis. The movement from Brighton proposes a march, leaving on the 1st of November 2011 and converging in London on the 15th of November, in front of the Parliament.

          The two activists from Belgium (Bruxelles and Namur) reported that activism and mobilization in Bruxelles are severely restrained by police interventions that prevent demonstrations and concentration of people, as well as a certain civic inertia due to the lack of awareness (the latter concern was also shared by the activist from the UK). The proposal from Bruxelles is to use popular assemblies as a tool in the struggle to rewrite the Constitution; a call for people to occupy the public and virtual spaces to enforce their freedom of speech; an appeal for local movements to become global. They also announced a march which will enter in Bruxelles, chosen because of its centrality on the European scene in this historical period, on the 16th of September 2011.

          Concerning the Portuguese situation, the Acampadas de Aveiro, Lisboa and Coimbra presented their objectives, the actions of the working groups, the priorities of the popular assemblies and the actions organized by each Acampada. Similarly the movements Attac Portugal, Uncut, Precários Inflexíveis, M12M (and M15M which intervened during the open discussion) reported on their involvement in specific processes of discussion and civic mobilization, especially on the debt, civic auctions, austerity plans and job insecurity.
          The goal of this 1st International Meeting, achieved in our views, was to gather social movements, groups, peoples and different realities to debate together over the necessity of a common international platform, including its computer aspects, not limited to protest actions but to foster the new processes of democratic participation and political activism. To this end, the possibility of creating international commissions is already being discussed within the various groups, as well as the implementation of a communication platform via the internet.
          Currently several protest proposal are available, but two in particular should be highlighted with a view to strengthening relationships and international communication between movements, and performing joint actions: the scheduling of a next longer international meeting (2-3 days) and an international day of mobilitation proposed for the 15th of October which could lead in the streets thousands of peoples outraged with the actual political, economic and social systems.
          Post Scriptum: in addition to the videos which are already available on several pages of Facebook and YouTube, the Inter(national) Group of the Acampada de Lisboa has the full footage of the event and therefore suggests the creation of a multimedia group for the management and divulgation of these materials. In the meanwhile we wish to thank Paulo Pereira for making available the videos of the interventions hereby linked.
