From the manifesto of the Spanish indignados protesting austerity earlier this year:
"Some of us consider ourselves progressive, others conservative. Some of us are believers, some not. Some of us have clearly defined ideologies, others are apolitical, but we are all concerned and angry about the political, economic and social outlook that we see around us: corruption among politicians, businessmen, bankers, leaving us helpless, without a voice.
[We are protesting on behalf of] the inalienable truths that we should abide by in our society: the right to housing, employment, culture, health, education, political participation, free personal development and consumer rights... We are people, not products. I am not a product of what I buy, why I buy and who I buy from."
