From the linked BBC story:
"Tens of thousands of Spanish protesters are continuing to defy a government ban by camping out overnight in a square in the capital, Madrid.
The protesters are angry with the government's economic policies and have occupied the Puerta del Sol area of the city for the past week.
Here, readers in Spain describe the scene at the protests and their reaction to the demonstrations.

We are not just asking for jobs. We are asking for a change in the political system.
We have no option but to vote for the two biggest parties in Spain, who are more or less the same. They are unable to solve any problem, it is just a nest of corruption.

This is eerily reminiscent of what happened in France in 1799, Mexico 1926-1935 and Spain, 1936-1939. In those times and places God and Christianity were outlawed, "reason" (or lack thereof) was enthroned and glorified; churches and monasteries were sacked and burnt -- sometimes with occupants inside. In Mexico, dead Catholic Christians swung from utility poles or were shot dead on a mass scale.
Disturbing times indeed!
