Meeting of Spanish Network in Madrid

The meeting is opening with a minute of silence to remember the death of a street vendor (their Union are co-founders of the net) on Thursday after being chased for selling goods on the streets, which is illegal in Spain. Mbaye (35) had been living in Spain undocumented for 14 years. He had found it impossible to obtain an ID, which is an institutional crime, and forced him to have this hard job.

On the other hand, the positive news is that thousands of people flooded the streets of his neighborhood (Lavapiés), where his death took place, peacefully to demand justice for these people.
