The protests in Madrid have been going strong all day, but very little news coverage.


Spanish police have fired rubber bullets and baton-charged protesters attending a rally against austerity.

The clashes occurred as protesters tried to tear down barriers blocking access to the parliament in Madrid, reports said.

Metal barriers had been placed around the building to block access from every possible direction.

Demonstrators - known as Indignants - say "Occupy Congress" is a protest against the kidnapping of democracy.

Spanish media reported at least 20 people had been arrested and 13 injured in the clashes, as police tried to prevent demonstrators gaining access to Congress.

edit: Oh, and in case you don't know, they are NOT protesting a movie trailer posted to YouTube. They are protesting against planned austerity measures.

Been watching the protests live

From what I have seen the protests have been peaceful, and its only the Spanish Police hell bent on violence. The use of rubber bullets in unwarranted and unjust.

What do you expect people are going to do when they have to pay the bill every time a bank loses money?
