Fighting bad lighting and a spotty internet connection, activists at the Rothschild tent city held a live chat Wednesday night with leaders of the “May 15” anti-government protests that brought hundreds of thousands into the streets across Spain since they began over three months ago.

Organizers said that the online meet-up, billed as “Live From Madrid,” was called so that activists from the two movements could interact with one another, and also share ideas for upcoming protest moves, including the international anti-bank “Day of Rage” protests on September 17th, and the international anti-government protest day called for October 15th. It was also meant as a way for Rothschild protesters to learn from the May 15th activists, who have accrued a bit more experience to share with the younger July 14th movement.
