eople have become increasingly frustrated by the many problems in Spain: Over 20% unemployment rate and over 30% youth unemployment rate, incompetent politicians unable to deal with the effects of the crisis, extremely high housing prices both for rental and purchase, a mortgage system that ties mortgage holders for life to the bank if the real estate is sold for under the loan amount, and a general discontent with the status of the political landscape (especially the effective two-party system of the center-right People's Party and the center-left Spanish Socialist Workers' Party).

    I think even most of rich countries have this kind of problems with their corrupt politicians this is not a reason to give up. The young people will protest against this fascist politicians and their non logic privileges.

    They are our employers, not our bosses.
