Renowned Spanish writer, humanist, and economist José Luis Sampedro (b. 1916) talks about the Spanish Revolution movement and shows his support for the protests.
Despite his age, or maybe because of that, he is a remarkable, clear-thinking man of vast intellect and an advocate for an economy built upon respect for human dignity.
He’s been awarded the Orden de las Artes y las Letras de España 2011 (The Order of the Arts and Letters of Spain). The Consejo de Ministros (Ministry Council) stated that the award is granted to Sampedro “por su sobresaliente trayectoria literaria y por su pensamiento comprometido con los problemas de su tiempo”. (“For his literary career and his commitment to the problems of his age”)
He is also member of the Royal Academy of the Spanish Language.
