Madrid protests

Ruh roh. Looks like the 15-M movement in Madrid is heading down a bad road:

Madrid protesters clash with riot police

 

Riots broke out, and four people were arrested, one of them a journalist, for “attack on authority.” Ironically, that doesn’t sum up what 15-M is about, but definitely resonates with their ideas of challenging the system and demanding reform of authority.

Violence is a sure way to lose out on everything 15-M stands for and wants to achieve, and easily fuel any opposition to the movement. Hope they pull it together…
