Thousands protest in Madrid as Midnight ban on demos passes!

Now reporters are stating that the unemployment rate for 18 to 25 year olds in Spain is 45%.

On Europe Day this week French EU Commissioner, Michel Barnier, stated the young people of Europe were indifferent to the EU, read here, (only in English, French and German I'm afraid, sorry Spaniards) I quote his opening paragraph:

"Only a few days ago, in Finland, and a few months ago, in France, over 20% of those countries’ citizens cast their votes for extremist and populist movements which are seeking to retreat behind their national borders. In other words, they are seeking to bring an end to the European project. And in addition to those voters, many others harbour doubts and worries, or are angry. On top of that, many young people are just indifferent."

Certainly doesn't appear as indifference to this blogger!
