Due the financial crisis in Spain, the opportunties to build a future for most of the youth in the Country have disappeared. Dozens of thousands of youngsters well prepared by the University, must face a landscape of high unemployment rates, exile and frustration.
A group of students built a platform called " Youth Without a Future" to denounce the cuts made by the Spanish Government and UE over the Welfare state, as well as a tool to promote alternative policies to deal with the financial and political crisis ( or a swindle as they define it ).
The platform made strategic decisions in a so called "real democratic way", where all members have the right to vote and the chance to debate every single proposition. Closely followed by police, "Youth Without a Future" is often criminalized by the Spanish Government because the platform became a main player in the citizens` movements in Spain.
All they take the streets under the same call: "We won´t pay your debts"
