This short film chronicles recent events in Spain where hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets to demand the resignation of the government and an end to police brutality. Many of the protests ended in clashes with the police. Since the stand off began on September 25th, the images of police brutality have travelled the world over, shocking and inspiring people across Europe and leading to an international day of action on September 29th. This film tells the story of why so many people took to the streets and follows these events as they unfolded.

The pictures are needed--very unfortunately. It says how corporate greed caused people to leave home and happiness to run down the streets--for how long? No one knows. That makes me wonder what the name United Nations mean. On the other hand I can see the OWS as true United Nations. I fancy OWS taking seats in the United Nations as CPU (central processing unit) with seven peripheral devices (the seven continents under its governance). The mad idea is not mine; I stole the idea from some Illuminatis who conceptualized the CPU/7 peripheral story as the Statue of Liberty. Goddess Libertas is the CPU and Her crown with seven spikes represent the seven continents. The Indian yogis created the same idea as Sudarshan Chakra. Both Veda and Bible speaks of man's uprise; it seems they spoke of OWS.

That is exactly what we need to do here: get serious and not only demand the government's resignation but make a new 9/11 investigation and put the real culprits in jail pending trial. Let's occupy the white house until it is done!

Shows how deep the corruption of the International Banksters is. Why don't we see this on TV. I know its corporate TV shouldn't have asked. If you really want to protest Vote Green Party. As well as walk in the streets.

Excellent video - should go viral. Shows world wide commonality of oppression of the public. Shows commonality of issues and of causes.
