Honestly, I thought you were going to discuss the one before ww2 (I think?)
You know, the one that finally turned Picasso, (who was previously described as the least political person ever by his best friend), political, after losing his mistress and son. I think that's when he painted gerniga (spelling?)
Anyhow, thanks for the heads up, checking now.

Here is the link. When you said revolution and the rest of Europe i thought it was serious. It is just a few thousand people having a demonstration. Most of the world is having similar financial problems.
On some english newspapers:
"With elections set for Sunday in Spain in more than 8,000 municipalities and 13 of its 17 regions, thousands of people, most of them young, have taken to the streets in Madrid, Barcelona and other large cities this week, calling for an end to suspected longstanding corruption among established parties. Fueling the demonstrators’ anger is the perceived failure by politicians to alleviate the hardships imposed on a struggling population by a jobless rate of 21 percent.
At sit-ins, street protests and on social media networks, the protesters’ message is that of an alternative campaign that could eclipse that of the established parties and result in a decline in voter turnout on Sunday, from 63 percent four years ago.
Some of the youth groups have made the fight against corruption their battle cry, like NoLesVotes, or “Don’t vote for them,” whose manifesto starts with the warning that “corruption in Spain has reached alarming levels.” The group recently published a Web site map pinpointing localities where more than 100 politicians seeking election were also under judicial investigation.[...]"
Their r mainly in facebook and twitter, I will go to see the ppl camped in our main square later. The camps r everywhere, in every city! Its awesome, and really really hard to say with words. Anyway, im off to see them !!
Revolution? I would call that a mass-demonstration, but not a "revolution"...
And what do you mean by "rest of europe"? ive been in germany, netherlands and austra in the last three month.. everything seems fine here.
