“Podemos is an offspring of an international democratic movement… a rearticulation of the Left after the long decades of neoliberalism.”
On this week’s show Grace Blakeley is joined by Pablo Bustinduy, former Madrid MP and international spokesperson for Spanish left-wing party Podemos.
In this episode they discuss Podemos’ roots in the indignados movement, its development into a movement-party and its path into coalition government with the centre-left PSOE.
They also talk about the impact of the pandemic on Spain’s fragile economy, and the likely long-term economic, political and social shifts caused by Covid-19.
