Thousands of Spaniards fed up with economic misery and waving banners against bankers marched on Saturday to mark the first anniversary of the grassroots "Indignados" movement that has sparked similar protests around the world. Dubbed "Los Indignados" (the Indignant), the movement which spawned similar protests worldwide prepare to occupy Spanish streets for the whole weekend on the first anniversary of the 15M movement in a renewed protest over government austerity measures, banks, politicians, economic recession, and the highest unemployment in the eurozone. The placard reads, "Rajoy!! Your cuts are racist, classist and sexist". REUTERS/Jon Nazca (SPAIN - Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY CIVIL UNREST)

    Wang Yang, Party Secretary of the Guangdong Province, attends the opening ceremony of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, March 3, 2012. Wang, who turns 57 this month, the reformist party chief of ChinaÕs southern economic powerhouse of Guangdong. His conciliatory handling of civil unrest in the fishing village of Wukan drew plaudits for defusing the protracted standoff, which ended in a breakthrough for grassroots civil rights activism. In Chinese power politics, careers are often built on years of toil in quiet conformity, punctuated by the occasional flourish of leadership in time of crisis or a policy initiative that gets adopted nationwide.
