Spain's M15, Precursor to Occupy Movement, Hails Probe of Ex-IMF Chief: A major force pushing for ex-IMF and Bankia chief Rodrigo Rato's prosecution has been the May 15 Movement, or M15, known around the world as the "indignados." Organized largely through social media, the M15 launched massive protests in Spain over unemployment, corruption and political stagnation. In Madrid, Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman interviews Stéphane Grueso, an activist and filmmaker who is making a documentary about the M15 movement. Responding to the news of Rato's investigation, Grueso says: "Finally it happens that maybe, eventually, one of these guys is going to pay. Because we citizens, we have this impression that none of these big guys have any problem, [ever]. They do what they want -- they steal, they lie, and nothing [ever] happens. But now, today, [something] is starting to happen."
