DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES
We have come here voluntarily and by free will. After the 15th of May demonstrations we have decided to remain united and grow in numbers in our fight for dignity. We do not represent any political party and they do not represent us.
We are united in our rage, our discomfort, the problems we face in our lives, which are derived by inequality, but above all, what keeps us together is our will for change. We are here because we want to build a new society that puts our lives before any political or economic interest. We feel crushed by the capitalist economy, we feel excluded from the present political system which does not represent us. We are fighting for a radical change in society. And, above all, we aim at keeping society as the sole driver of this transformation.
They thought we were asleep. They thought they could carry on cutting our rights without resistance. But they were wrong: we are fighting – peacefully, but with determination – for the life we deserve.
We have learned from Cairo, Iceland and Madrid.
Now it’s time to extend the fight and spread the word.
