In the spring of 2011 many protesters took over the public squares in Spain. They demanded that a stop had to be put to the cuts, the evictions, and the sell-out to the banks. In the squares of Tunis, Kiev, Amsterdam, Cairo, Istanbul and Tel Aviv big groups of people gathered over the past few years to protest and press their demands for change. But what happened after the demonstrations in the squares?

How are the widely supported demands translated into real change? Backlight talks to former square activists from Tunis, Tel Aviv and Barcelona about the choices they made after the mass mobilizations.
