Since May 15, protesters in Spain have been camping out in town squares to call for political, economic and social reform in their country.
Many people have been tweeting us information related to the events in Spain.
The protests, which are now happening in 50 some Spanish cities, can be tracked on Twitter using the hashtags #spanishrevolution, #acampadasol (a reference to the camping at Madrid's Puerta del Sol square), #yeswecamp, #notenemosmiedo (we are not afraid), and #democraciarealya (real democracy now).
Using Skype and Google chat, YouTube user MCLyteNyng put together this report with protesters explaining the #spanishrevolution in their own words.
@albertoeps writes via Twitter: "A new democracy is being born...The evolution of the system has already arrived."
Some techie humour from a protest supporter: "Democracy 1.0 - obsolete, Democracy 2.0 - installing"
Another hashtag, #nolesvotes (do not vote for them) formed as a response to Spain's Sinde Law, which would regulate online downloading.
More photos of the protest in Madrid being circulated online:
Those who are unable to make it to Spain can watch Sol TV’s live stream of the protest camp at Madrid’s Puerta del Sol square.
Below, a Twitpic with a caption suggesting that with citizens using Twitter and online video to tell the story, there's no need for mainstream media to get the word out.
From Berlin, @ptqk tweets in solidarity with the campers in Sol square. Her sign reads, "I am also at #acampadasol."
Those in the Arab world also recognise their influence on Spain's latest social movement.
