From the Squares to the Hood – Grass-roots activism in the Iberian Peninsula

How did the 15M movement go from the squares to the neighborhoods, and what can we learn from their grass-roots organizing efforts? Spanish and Portuguese activists will present short documentaries and films about the activism that has come to life in the wake of the 15M ‘Indignados’ movements.

We’ll find out what happened to the thousands of people that occupied city squares, and asked themselves “what next?” Just beneath the surface of societies that are being torn apart by austerity there are vibrant movements of solidarity, self-help, and resistance going on.

  • Alex Merlo, from the Spanish M-15 Movement will be speaking and introducing the videos.
