#spanishrevolution: manifesto

Who are we?

We are people who have come freely and voluntarily, who after the protest decided to reunite in
order to continue demanding dignity, and political and social conscience. We do not represent a
political party or any particular association. A calling for change is that which unites us. We are here
for dignity and for solidarity with those who cannot be here.

Why are we here?

We are here because we want a new society that prioritises life above political and economic
interests. We plead for a change in society and social conscience. We are here to demonstrate that
society has not gone to sleep and that we will continue fighting for what we deserve through
peaceful means. We support fellow protesters who were detained following the demonstration, and
we ask that they are freed without charge. We all want it, we want it now, and if you agree: UNITE!
It is better to take a risk and lose, than to lose without having tried at all.
