<nettime> 22M in Madrid

Clashes broke out as hundreds of thousands converged in the Spanish
capital for a ?March of Dignity? against austerity and the right-wing
government. Over 100 people were injured and at least two dozen arrested
after clashes broke out following an anti-austerity rally in Madrid last
night. Arriving in six columns from all over the country (many of them
on foot), hundreds of thousands of protesters converged upon the Spanish
capital as part of a nationwide ?March of Dignity?. As Spain enters its
sixth year of crisis, with unemployment at a shocking 26% and nearly
half a million families having been evicted from their homes since 2008,
the indignation naturally runs high.
