Tens of thousands of people have flooded the centre of Madrid in a rally for the far-left party Podemos, a party formed just a year ago which is currently topping opinion polls in the run up to local, regional and national elections this year.
People are fed up with the political class
Last week, Alexis Tsipras swept into victory on a wave of anti-austerity anger in Greece. He said he hoped voters across Europe would be inspired by Greece to break the "vicious cycle of austerity". Speaking shortly after his election he said:
First we talk Athens, then we take Madrid.
Tens of thousands of people turned out to take part in a march organised by Spain's anti-austerity party Podemos today.
Chanting "yes we can" and "tic tac tic tac" the gathered protesters were supporting Podemos' call for political change in light of the country's struggling economy.
More than 2,000 sheep meandered through central Madrid today as shepherds made use of their ancient grazing and droving rights.
The shepherds have to move their livestock from the mountainous areas, which will soon be under snow, to winter grazing grounds in southern Spain.
The so-called La Transhumancia migration route passes along Madrid's Alcala Street by the famous landmark Cibeles Fountain.
Madrid used to be a rural hamlet and for over 800 years farmers have being droving their animals along a route that now lies through the capital city.
