All Roads Lead to Sol

That’s why they call it Kilómetro Cero. On Saturday night hundreds of marchers celebrated the end of their journeys as they poured into the Puerta del Sol from all points of the compass, having marched some 600, 700, even 800 km over the last month or more in the burning Spanish summer.The press has taken to calling them the indignados, which I think is quite an appropriate moniker. The source of their indignation? A political system that has been reduced to the same two-party paralytic charade that the U.S. has suffered for over a century. And a European Union that seems more concerned with the status of its exports than with protecting the people in countries where the euro has been anything but a blessing.
