Youth without Future (Spanish youths take to the streets)

Copying the Portuguese model of informal organization outside of the old and bought institutional Left, Spanish youths are taking to the streets this evening under the slogan:

Youth without Future - without home... job... pension... fear
The demo as you can see is today at 7pm in Madrid. It seems to me a little bit too fast (the calling seems to have just a few days) but hopefully it will break a trend in Spanish politics: passivity and resignation.

More info (in Spanish) at Juventud SIN Futuro.

Also their video:

Update (Apr 8):

I cannot gather much information on what happened yesterday in Madrid. At least Sare Antifaxista has finally published an information indicating that:

The demo as such happened without further incidents (no figures are provided).

Between 21:00 and 22:00 some 200 people cut traffic between Paseo del Prado and Alcalá street. Anti-riot police intervened against them then, arresting 13 and injuring at least one.
