After the Revolution (2016)

In the spring of 2011 many protesters took over the public squares in Spain. They demanded that a stop be put to the cuts, the evictions, and the sell-out to the banks. In the squares of Tunis, Kiev, Amsterdam, Cairo, Istanbuland Tel Aviv the masses gathered over the past few years to protest and press their demands for change.

But what happened after the demonstrations in the squares? What can be done when the voices of the masses die down? How are the widely supported demands translated into real change? VPRO Backlight talked to former square activists from Tunis, Tel Aviv and Barcelona about the choices they made after the mass mobilizations.
