hologram protest in spain

Crowds of people marched and protested near a Spanish parliament building in Madrid over the weekend to protest a new law. But this protest was unlike any other protest, the first of its kind...a hologram protest.

Demonstrators used a hologram equipment to project protestors in front of the Congress of Deputies. Quite ironic once you find out why they are protesting.

"Our protest with holograms is ironic," said spokesman Carlos Escano, according to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo. "With the restrictions we're suffering on our freedoms of association and peaceful assembly, the last option that will be left to us in the end will be to protest through our holograms."via CNN.

This new law allows for protestors to be criminalized and punished, depending on the circumstances. Such a punishment could even include being fined 30,000 euros ($31,800). The law will go into effect in July.
