El movimiento 15 M llega a la portada del New York Times

Si la portada de ayer de la mayoría de diarios internacionales la protagonizaba nuestro Rafa Nadal, la de hoy del New York Times vuelve a tener carácter español, pero muy diferente. El periódico recoge en un artículo y foto de portada el movimiento 15 M y el despertar de los españoles ante un sistema que nos les representa y que exigen cambiar.

El artículo, “An awakening that keeps them up all night” está escrito por Suzanne Daley y acompañado por una galería de fotos de Marta Ramoneda. El artículo incluye documentadas entrevistas en terreno tanto en Madrid como en Barcelona, y el testimonio de Enrique Dans (economista y blogger de IE Business School), uno de los impulsores de este movimiento que hoy recogía en su blog la noticia.

La protesta tiene cada vez más reflejo internacional. A continuación les ofrecemos un extracto del artículo del New York Times.

Historically, Spaniards have taken to the streets with some regularity, like most Europeans. But the events are usually organized by political parties and unions, organizations that the young have largely ignored. Many of the new protesters say they are disgusted with the unions that do little to represent their interests and with both of Spain’s main parties, which they view as corrupt and unresponsive.

Early participants say the protests bloomed over Twitter and Facebook, triggered by several events that gnawed at the younger generation, including revelations from WikiLeaks documents that showed government officials to be less than forthright, and opposition to a recent antipiracy Internet law, which aims to shut down previously legal Web sites enabling the free downloading of music and films.

“WikiLeaks and the antipiracy law were not the reasons for the outpouring,” said Enrique Dans, an economist and blogger at the IE Business School in Madrid, who became involved in protesting the antipiracy law and then helped to mobilize his followers. “But they were the spark. Just like the man who set himself on fire in Tunisia was not the reason, but the spark for what happened afterwards.”

Mr. Dans arrived at the initial demonstration late and was stunned at the turnout. “I came around the corner and I thought, ‘My God, there are people here,’ ” he said. “There has never really been a grass-roots movement in Spain.”
