You can read about People’s Assemblies here and contribute to the further development of the politics and economics of PAs at our declaration draft page. Also, take a look at the Wikipedia entry on Popular Assemblies which everyone who believes in a much better form of democracy than the prevailing model is encouraged to contribute to!
The 15M movement is – so far – relatively unified in certain organisational strategies, and an overall systemic critique. That said, it has understandably taken different forms in different cities across Spain and elsewhere in the world.

Read more on Greek story here.
(1) Find here an inspiring video in English about the movement.
(2) From Greece, an English language piece called “Democracy is Born in the Squares” is translated at Occupied London.
(3) From participants in the Barcelona 15M movement, here is a detailed (and, overall positive) critique of the movement from an anarchist perspective: CrimethInc. About tensions between centralised / decentralised, ‘official’ / autonomous and pacifist / other - guaranteed to get people thinking !
