15-M movement: thousands march to Spanish Congress, 200 brutally beaten for marching to Valencian Parliament

The latest news from the 15-M movement in the state of Spain is that thousands have marched on the Spanish Congress (lower house of Parliament or Courts) against the new decree regulating collective bargaining.

They attempted to make an assembly before Congress, just as the protesters in Athens are gathered before Parliament, but police impeded them from reaching so close to their supposed representatives, though there were no clashes... yet.

A smaller but similar march in Valencia, as the regional Parliament (also known as Courts) began its activities after elections, was brutally quelled by police (photo).
