Indignants in Spain and Indecisive in Poland. The Spanish Inspiration in the Polish Context and the Protest Failure in the Country of “Solidarnosć
The 15-M movement raised in Spring 2011 and the social activity of the Indignants in Spain was a social and cultural phenomenon of big interest not only in the Spanish society but also in other countries of Europe and America. It seems that the Indignants Movement -that was started in Spain- was also the inspiration for a segment of Polish youth to protest against the Government. But the nature and the scope of these protests were clearly different from it was happening in Old Europe. The objective of this article is to show similarities and differences of the young people’s attitude in Spain and Poland, making reference to comments of the Polish press.
