#Spanishrevolution now has 650 areas of Revolutionary action around planet

All are agreed, something amazing is happening right here and right now on this beautiful little planet. And, by Christ do we need it!!! A week ago, even in Spain, there wasn’t too much awareness of what was going on with the M-15 movement, but now, only days later and it appears that a bomb has gone off. Last look on the digital map of places participating in the #SPANISHREVOLUTION gave a count of 650 (yes that’s right SIX HUNDRED AND FIFTY) places around the planet expressing solidarity with what’s going on here in Spain, or being inspired to bring the revolution to their part of the world.

Tahrir > Spain > World
Tahrir > Spain > World

Rather than explaining just how incredible these last days have been and where this eruption of “Democracia Real, Ya!” (Real Democracy Now) has come from, I’ll direct you to the two fine reports from the heart of the rebellion: Andy Price, writing from the revolt’s heart in Madrid`s Plaza de la SOLución on Z:NET (1) in “From Arab Spring to Spanish Summer: The Protests Continue” explains the magic, the creativity and the power of it all, as things very very quickly unfolded in just a matter of days. And in “Notes from Barcelona’s Tahrir Square“(2), Josep Maria Antentas and Esther Vivas explain the origins of where this movement, or revolution, have come from and where they hope to get to.

A few days ago, maybe Thursday, we greeted the news with much joy that the movement had grown so big so quick; about 60 towns in Spain were having demos or occupations. We saw the Washington Post’s front page that had a picture of Plaza de la SOLución accompanied with the heading “A spring of frustration in Spain” (3) and we thought “something is really kicking off here, this is going big”, word went about that “indignant” demos had been called in Italy and also planned for Birmingham, Amsterdam, Berlin, Warsaw, Paris, Budapest, Istanbul and Buenos Aires and we thought “FUCK, this is really starting to take off”. The Toma la placa (take the square) group was coordinating international demos, by end of Thursday the list was still small but sufficient enough for the TWITTER tag #spanishrevolution to appear in general Spanish mainstream media, like in Publico.ES: “La #spanishrevolution se extiende a todo el mundo” (The #spanishrevolution is growing around the world) (4). It was about this time that we came across that super photo which we think is from the rebels in Manchester: NOBODY EXPECTS THE #SPANISHREVOLUTION (5)

So, anyways, since Thursday we saw things grow and grow and grow, its just got bigger, bolder AND spread globally all around the world. Here in Placa Catalunya incredible work is being done around the clock, the TAKE THE SQUARE! team have produced, well are still producing, a super online toolkit (6); the how’s, why’s, what’s of creating your own pocket of resistance in a town near you. On the site is the world map with all the points marked with places around the world taking action (7) Here in the square, inspired by all this global action a group set up one of the finest things I have ever seen; a big board with maps of the World, Europe, Spain, Catalunya, Barcelona city, all with loads of coloured little tacks stuck into them, each being a node of where local groups are active and have taken to the streets. This is without doubt the most powerful thing I have seen which communicates to the people passing through the square (revolutionaries, locals going from A to B, tourists…) just how big this movement has got. So in honour of that small, simple colourful stand and whoever created I pass on through photos the beauty of this moment in time.

Presently, many taken Spanish revolutionary squares are now doing live streams (8). Just an hour ago we had a first live stream hook up; the squares of Donostia (The Basque name for San Sebastian) and Barcelona greeted each other. A lovely moment! We hope to spread this square-to-square (S2S) greeting to further strengthen the movement, maybe we might even say hi to the Peoples republic of Cork (9) tomorrow, who knows???

So wherever you are tune in, get inspired, spread word, call an event, take a square… Change (Y)our world, Real Democracy Now! (10)

Peace, love, hope, solidarity and strength from the occupied zone, Placa Catalunya, Barcleona’s Tahrir square.

The instigator of the Icelandic revolution sends a message of support to the Spanish people (vid in english, with spanish subtitles)
(El impulsor de la revolución islandesa, manda un mensaje de apoyo a los españoles)
http://is.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C3%B6r%C3%B0ur_Torfason on icelandic wikipedia

Vid aqui - 4.20mins http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlVow6t5lOM (vid in english, with spanish subtitles)

Hello people of Spain.My name is Hörður Torfason (Hordur Torfason).I am standing in front of the parliament building in Iceland, in Reykjavik, the capital.In October the 11th 2008, I came down here and started asking people were passing by “what has happened in Iceland? what is happening? what can we do?”And I stood here everyday for a week.At 12 o’clock I came down here and I asked people to meet up, and I asked the parliament members who passed by. I am not a politician I am an artist who has been fighting using my talents to fight for human rights for more than 40 years. And I considered the situation in Iceland, in 2008, the financial crash, a human right issue. So, a week later, I had hired a big car and sound equipment and I started weekly demonstration meetings here to analyse the situation and ask the government to step down, because they had failed their duties.And to me, and most people, we saw through the corruption. And now 2 years have passed by, and we have had news of corruption almost everyday. Now, to do a demonstration what I really emphasised in the meetings, in the beginning of every meeting, was that we do this peacefully, no violence. Because if we use violence, the politicians, the government will use force, they will use the police, in your case, I think, even armed. This took continuously a lot work doing this, it took 5 months, but it succeeded one hundred percent. We haven’t finished, because changing the society takes decades, we are always changing our societies. But I challenged everyone here in Iceland, I asked to use the pots the pans, our stories, our songs, make it peaceful make it joyful protests. That’s the way. And take care of each other, Became friends, sharing your worries, be together, stick together. Because politicians see a group of people, they look at 10000 people and they think this people are 10000 votes, this is our way of making that understand. We select you to the parliament to be our servants, you are not our masters. We are the people, we decide, and we don’t like to be cheated, or lied to. We want changes and we want honesty, is that too much to ask for? No, it’s not. We want a society where everyone is included, not just few rich people. People of Spain, thank you, good luck with your protests. Bye from Iceland for now anyway.

EN CASTELLANO:
Hola gente de España.Mi nombre es Hordur Torfason.Estoy en frente del edificio del parlamento en Islandia, en Reykjavik, la capital. El 11 de Octubre del 2008, vine aquí y empecé a preguntar a la gente que pasaba por aquí: ¿" Qué ha sucedido en Islandia? ¿Qué está pasando? ¿Qué podemos hacer? "Estuve aquí todos los días durante una semana.A las 12 llegaba aquí y pedía a la gente que se reuniese, también se lo preguntaba a los miembros del parlamento que pasaban por aquí. Yo no soy político soy un artista que ha estado luchando con mis talentos, a favor de los derechos humanos durante más de 40 años. Yo consideraba que la situación de Islandia, en 2008, la crisis financiera, era un tema de derechos humanos.Así, una semana más tarde, alquile un gran coche y equipo de sonido y empecé unas reuniones semanales aquí, para analizar la situación y pedir al gobierno que dimitiese, porque habían fallado en sus deberes.Yo y la mayoría de la gente, veíamos que había corrupción. Y ahora dos años mas tarde, tenemos noticias de esta corrupción casi todos los días. Ahora, para hacer una manifestación, en lo que realmente hacía hincapié en las reuniones, al inicio de cada reunión, era que debíamos de hacerlo de forma pacífica, sin violencia. Porque si usamos la violencia, los políticos, el gobierno hace uso de la fuerza, hacen uso de la policía, en vuestro caso, creo que, incluso armada.Hacer esto supuso un trabajo continuo, nos llevo 5 meses, pero tuvo un éxito del cien por cien. Todavía no hemos terminado, porque cambiar la sociedad lleva décadas. Pero yo desafié a los Islandeses, les pedí que usasen las ollas y las sartenes, nuestras historias, nuestras canciones, que hiciesen que las protestas fuesen pacificas y alegres. Ese es el camino. Y cuidar el uno del otro, compartir las preocupaciones, estar juntos y unidos. Porque los políticos miran a un grupo de personas, ven a 10000 personas y piensan que pueden ser 10000 votos, esta es nuestra manera de hacer que entiendan. Nosotros los elegimos para el parlamento, para que sean nuestros sirvientes, no son nuestros amos. Nosotros somos el pueblo, nosotros decidimos, y no nos gusta ni que nos engañen ni que nos mientan. Queremos cambios y queremos honestidad, es esto demasiado pedir? No, no lo es. Queremos una sociedad donde se incluya a todo el mundo, no sólo unos pocos ricos. Gente de España, gracias, y buena suerte con sus protestas. De momento, adiós desde Islandia.

http://twitter.com/#!/fuspey/status/73474858167713793

That famous square outside the Greek parliament, where months ago, we saw thousands beaten down from the steps... Well in that square there is now camped 40,000 people, in just 1 of the many ACAMPADA actions that have happened all around Greece, in there day of action, M25, the day the #SPANISHREVOLUTION sparked #GREEKREVOLUTION. (more than 30 cities have been occupied)

At present, as i type, sitting here in 1 of the front rows infront of our screen in Placa Catalunya, we will hook up with that square (Parliament square??) to connect the 2 squares, say hello, build up and deepen the network.

Am trying to find both stream channels, in meantime this is one of stream out channels from Barcelona: http://www.ustream.tv/discovery/live/all?q=acampadosbcn

There have been much developments in Spain and the world in the last few weeks. M27, Friday 27th of May, saw the Catalan police, the Mossos, enter the Barcelona camp, beat many people severly, shoot off loads of rubber bullets, injure 140 people, 4 severly... BUT it has only made us stronger. Im passing on what I think are the 2 best vids I have seen of M27 and of the #spanishrevolution in general, Please pass around, spread word, inspire, organise and bring the revolution home to your area...

Infos re M27: Barcelona Camp being evicted now so Barca Football club can celebrate
http://www.indymedia.ie/article/99883

Celebrated author, sociologist, network theorist etc... Manuel Castells was in the camp after the attack, he wrote an excellent article about the movement, which has been translated by hugh green here: Castells on #wikiacampadas: going slow because they’re going far
http://hughgreen.wordpress.com/2011/05/29/castells-on-w...-far/

At the end, in Madrid a few spent the night in the Puerta del Sol, and the following day some more in Barcelona on the Plaza Catalunya. They talked, they dreamed and they tweeted their networks of friends. The next day they were hundreds. Then, thousands. When they were evicted from the Puerta del Sol, many thousands more came.

The acampadas proliferated in Spain and they extended through the world. On the 25th, after the elections received with total indifference in this emerging society, despite the fact that it signaled the total collapse of really inexisting socialism, there were 706 acampadas registered on the map of the globe.

They keep appearing as each locality adds its peaceful, festive and protesting demonstration to the networks weaved between cyberspace and urban space.

A slow process because, as a poster reads in Barcelona, “we’re going slowly because we’re going far”. So those who minimize the wikiacampadas still do not understand how profound they are. They may leave the squares, to return to them periodically, but they will not leave the social networks and the minds of those who participate. They are no longer alone and they have lost their fear. Because they discovered new forms of organization, participation and mobilization that burst the traditional channels belonging to those whom a large section of society, and the majority of young people, distrust. Parties and institutions will have to learn to live with this emerging civil society. If not, they will hollow out from the inside while citizens move from wikiacampadas to that networked democracy yet to be discovered in a collective practice that finds its root in every person.

Since these days things have spread, BIGTIME...

Presently the AMERICAN REVOLUTION is underway, thanks to the #OCCUPYWALLSTREET actions from a few days ago:
