They demanded political participation and denounced that politicians do not even listen to them. Listen to them? How, if there is no democracy in Spain? Politicians neither are citizens voice to the institutions, nor ease their political participation. Politicians just supplant Popular Sovereignty in the sake of their masters, the bankers who provide financial support for parties, aside of its subsidization by the state and black money from bribery. On our opinion, all these riots claimed for symptoms of an illness, not for the illness itself — «We want some headache tablets!» they seem to claim, instead of «We want this brain tumor out!»–. Because all these demanded goals only could be got in a true democracy with independence of powers from the polls and guaranteed representation –they were supposed to claim for real democracy, weren’t they?–. Lamentably, them all were people with no sense about what democracy is. 40 years of Franco’s autocratic regime and 35 more of Coconut Monarchy of parties seem to have erased all vestige of democratic sense in the Spaniard brains.
Demonstrators do rioted for an ethical revolution. There are not ethical revolutions. There are democratic revolutions or fakes. It should have been easier, less dangerous and much more effective to demonstrate hung banners saying: “We want just to be French!”

Es un régimen político con estricta independencia de los poderes ejecutivo, legislativo y judicial, separados desde las urnas en circunscripciones unipersonales y a doble vuelta, en el cual la ciudadanía participa eligiendo a sus representantes mediante el ejercicio del voto libre y secreto, quedando tales representantes sometidos al mandato imperativo de sus electores, constituidos en asamblea, y pudiendo ser depuestos por ésta en caso de incumplir tal mandato.
Esta es la única clase de democracia que hace a un país libre, y a sus ciudadanos, hombres dignos.
