Countrywide peaceful protests have been organized through social media networks such as Twitter. Hundreds of demonstrators have been camping out at Madrid's Puerta del Sol square since May 15 to demand a 'real democracy' and political and social change in Spain, The Guardian reported on Friday.
Other similar protests have been held in Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Bilbao, Zaragoza and other Spanish cities.
"The economy and unemployment are key to the protest because that binds all of us together," Jon Aguirre Such, a spokesman for the Real Democracy Now movement, said.
