G20 demo Obama steals the show in Madrid for InspirActionorg

After stopping for a photo call on the G20 demonstrations organised by the unions in Madrid, Obama and Company, who were supporting the cause of www.InspirAction.Org , made a dash to the podium where the organises of the demonstration were due to speak. Seeing that they left in a hurry after their photo call, I decided to follow them to see what they were up to. As far as I know, apart from the InspirAction photographer I was the only other photographer privy to this stunt. The demonstration was organised by a collective of Spanish Unions who marched from the Thyssen Museum, after having been refused at the last minute to start from the Madrid Stock Exchange, to the Head Office of Banco Santander. www.InspirAction.Org are an NGO who fight for the rights of poorer countries for example, trying to draw attention to problems caused by rich countries on poor countries, the North-South Divide, provide basic services such as water and promote human rights. Their philosophy is to work within the system, by being a virus to power a relief to those in need. (more photos to follow)
