Thousands of demonstrators flood Madrid to mark the fifth anniversary of the Spanish Indignants movement. People together, won't be defeated, they shouted while holding anti-austerity signs and banners. The movement began in 2011 and helped overturn the country's two party system. Protesters say their hard work was worth it. Our anger five years ago has been transformed into political parties that are aimed at changing things, one demonstrator said. The group marched to Plaza del Sol, ground zero for the movement in 2011, where hundreds camped out for weeks. "Los indignados" as they were dubbed by local media helped spark similar movements across Europe.
