Podemos are on the rise, as part of a Populist movement against austerity and elites. They are creating a new form of politics based on open participation, transparency and radical democracy.

“Podemos is above all an experiment, or as some in the party – Maura included – have described it, a ‘hypothesis’. It can be summarised as follows: the Spanish regime is facing a crisis of legitimacy and there exists an opportunity for the emergence of a party with progressive politics and popular appeal that can challenge the political establishment and reassert the collective power of the people against corporate capital. So far, the evidence suggests the Podemos hypothesis to be valid.” http://www.redpepper.org.uk/podemos-politics-by-the-people/

Left Unity is the UK sister party of Podemos and Syriza.
