<nettime> FYI [presentation video] The Citizen Network - X Party is grooving

We are a group of Spanish activists and citizens involved in a new political initiative called 'Red Ciudadana Partido X' (Citizen Network - X Party). You might have read some of the articles published about us in English-speaking media [1] [2] [3] or some of the references appeared in academic or activist sites [4] [5]. Anyway, you can find more information about this project at our webpage [6]. Many of us have been involved in the M15 Indignados movement in Spain, which has deeply transformed the Spanish political scene. We have spent more than one year developing a 'prototype' of a citizen network that could be able to pose a threat to the duopoly of Spanish main parties. For the last several months we have been building that network, which now includes thousands of people and active nodes in many of the main Spanish cities. Last October 8 we organized a public presentation of the project in Madrid and six other Spanish cities that was attended by around 1000 people and was watched by more than 10 000 viewers over the Internet. You can watch a video summary of the event in Youtube [7] (English subtitles available): [1] [2] s-financial-crisis.
