The intersection of contemporary Spanish anarchism with Los Indignados or the 15-M movement that erupted in May 2011 in plaza encampments across Spain to protest an economic crisis of over 50 percent youth unemployment is discussed by Justin Helepololei, an anthropology graduate student at UMass-Amherst.  Justin has spent time with Okupa squatters, primary in Barcelona and Catalunya.  He covers the recent history and mutual aid practices of these two distinct radical movements and considers their relationship to the Occupy movement in the U.S.
