A protest song in the bank queue

Activists demonstrate against the handling of nationalised lender Bankia with a musical interlude.


Activists perform inside the branch of the lender Bankia in Tirso de Molina, Madrid on May 9, 2013. The action was part of a nationwide protest in and near Bankia offices across Spain, as part of the second anniversary of the 15M, or indignados, movement. The protesters object to the massive state aid Bankia and other banks have received, its allegedly fraudulent management by former IMF managing director Rodrigo Rato and the continued eviction of many of its clients who are unable to keep up mortgage payments due to the economic crisis.
