<nettime> FYI [presentation video] The Citizen Network - X Party is grooving


We  are a group of Spanish activists and citizens involved in a new
political initiative called 'Red Ciudadana Partido X' (Citizen Network -
X Party). You might have read some of the articles published about us in
English-speaking media [1] [2] [3] or some of the references appeared in
academic or activist sites [4] [5]. Anyway, you can find more
information about this project at our webpage [6]. Many of us have been
involved in the M15 Indignados movement in Spain, which has deeply
transformed  the Spanish political scene.

We have spent more than one year developing a 'prototype' of a citizen
network that could be able to pose a threat to the duopoly of Spanish
main parties. For the last several months we have been building that
network, which now includes thousands of people and active nodes in many
of the main Spanish cities.

Last October 8 we organized a public presentation of the project in
Madrid and six other Spanish cities that was attended by around 1000
people and was watched by more than 10 000 viewers over the Internet.
You can watch a video summary of the event in Youtube [7] (English
subtitles available): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub_Nwxj9948

We  are very interested in talking to people who promote similar lines
of  action all over the world.

All the best,
Red Ciudadana, Partido X
