“They all must go!” … protest outside the Spanish embassy

(london.indymedia.org) … people kept shouting last night outside the Spanish embassy in Belgravia. Since Wednesday 18th large crowds of mainly spaniards living in London are following a call to demonstrate and to express anger about the “political, economic, and social outlook which we see around us: corruption among politicians, businessmen, bankers, leaving us helpless, without voice.”

On Friday 20th around 300 people showed up at Chesham Place for a ‘pots & pans’ protest, coinciding with hundreds of ‘cacerolazo’ protests called thorughout Spain as part of the ‘Spanish Revolution’ currently taking place all over the country. After the protest, a public assembly took place where, amongst other things, people debated the practicalities of setting up camp till Sunday 22nd. As a result, around 50 people spent the night outside the embassy, and there are plans for further demonstrations today Saturday and Tomorrow Sunday (See Democracy London blog)
