My first multimedia story about the “lost generation” in Spain for Global Post / Groundtruth. Text: Tik Root.
Roberto and Brandán (24 and 19) bike in front of the Navantia shipbuilding compound, where fired workers have hung their uniforms in protest. Roberto works as a lumberjack because he couldn’t find a job related to his studies. Brandán is looking for a job with government, the only path he sees to stability. Ferrol, Spain.
Aldara, a student from Colmenarejo, a village in Madrid province, joined the marches of dignity and came walking to Sol square in the capital, to protest against the cuts in education implemented by the government of Mariano Rajoy. Protesters travelled on foot from all corners of Spain as a symbol of their indignation.
Coke, 24, unemployed. He smokes a cigarette before going to sleep in an occupied building of the Complutense University of Madrid after a day of protests in the capital. He walked more than one month from his city, Burgos, to Madrid to join the march of dignity. #genTBD #LostGeneration. http://www.juanherrerophoto.com
