Protest party Podemos shakes up politics in Spain

People were wondering what had happened to the “Indignants”, the protesters who swamped Spanish squares in 2011 to demand political change. The protests may have lessened, but just when Spain was least expecting it, the Indignants have surged back — not in the streets but in the polls. Although they still have a long way to go to really trouble Spain’s establishment, the result took many observers by surprise since opinion polls had forecast only a two or three percent vote share for the party. It was particularly impressive since the party was only officially formed four months ago, and contributed to the decline of the mainstream Socialist party, whose leader, Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, resigned in the aftermath.
