THE CROWD TODAY
Every second day Place du Luxembourg hosts manifestations and protests.
From May 2012 to October 2013* we fished a young looking person from the crowd up to our balcony and presented what they had to say in this section. *The crowd today is back!

Why are you protesting?
We are protesting for the half a million Spanish people who have Hepatitis. It is extremely expensive to buy treatment for it and we cannot all pay for it.
What can the parliament do?
They can provide us with free treatment and treatment for everyone, as there are only 500 people that have been treated. The government is also saying there is only 6000 treatments available to people who are crucially ill, this will not save half a million people.
Where are you going after this?
We are going back to Madrid where many of us have been protesting outside the hospital of Madrid since December 2014 and we will continue protesting.
