Spain rises up and say's NO!

I just received this in an e-mail.  Yet another example of the Main Stream Media blocking entire events from the public's knowledge, while other media outlets  severely downplay events, insinuating that it's just a bunch of grumpy teenagers with nothing else to do...

"The demonstrators - known as Indignants - say "Occupy Congress" is a protest against the kidnapping of democracy.Thousands of people massed in Plaza de Neptuno square in central Madrid for the march on parliament....
Tuesday's demonstration was organised via social media sites and many young people turned out, says the BBC's Tom Burridge in Madrid - but the protest's public profile meant the police were ready for them.
The police's tactics seem to have been to target ringleaders to break up the crowds, adds our correspondent, which prompted some scuffles but no widespread fighting....

EDITED 10:00am

I've just been informed that two of the photos below are from different demonstrations- in particular the lower left is from Mexico two months ago

The largest public protests, rallies, and demonstrations that the world has ever seen are happening with almost no media coverage. Not only is there a blackout on these events in the media, but YouTube is frequently removing footage of these mass rallies and events when requested to do so by governments: 'Google, the owner of YouTube, has complied with the majority of requests from governments, particularly in the United States and the UK, not only to remove You Tube videos, but also specific web search terms and thousands of “data requests,” meaning demands for information that would reveal the true identity of a You Tube user.' These events are truly inspiring and should be front page news! Yet mainstream media is working with governments to keep people uninformed and dis-empowered.
