We are a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.
The idea of protesting and camping in the square:
1) As a way of demonstrating against a dominant and oppressive system, lead by a political class working for banks and big corporations
2) As a way to promote new initiatives of political, social, economical, artistic and cultural organization.
That concept was created in the camp of Madrid (AcampadaSol) and then exported to the rest of the cities of Spain and the world.
We encourage the use of nonviolence to achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants.
