Scott Walker in a recall election next month, tells reporters at a Milwaukee news conference on Monday, May 21, 2012, that he's confident about his chances in the race.

Dubbed "Los indignados", the movement which spawned similar protests worldwide, has called for 96 hours of continuous protest to culminate at the Puerta del Sol square in Madrid where the movement was founded a year ago in a renewed protest over government austerity measures, banks, politicians, economic recession, and the highest unemployment in the eurozone..

    Grassroots "Indignados" movement supporters make a complaint inside a Bankia bank branch near Madrid's Puerta del Sol May 14, 2012. On Saturday, tens of thousands of Spaniards took to the streets in 80 cities across the country, waving banners and chanting against the bankers and politicians they blame for Spain's worst crisis in decades. The Indignados caught global attention last May and inspired other popular movements against austerity policies that are aimed at cutting debt and reassuring investors but hit the living standards of all except wealthy elites, critics say. Placards read, "Just to let you know. This bank frauds, cheats and throws the people out of their home." REUTERS/Andrea Comas (SPAIN - Tags: CIVIL UNREST BUSINESS POLITICS SOCIETY)
