Photographer's Note

The global financial crisis is taking its toll on all of us, and for the first time in centuries the new generations are likely to be poorer than the previous ones.

The "indignados" movement started in Spain last May, and brought thousands of students and workers in the streets to protest against a goverment and a financial elite that they feel are stealing their future.

The movement has quickly expanded, and this weekend thousands of protesters filled the streets in Asia, Europe and America.

A demonstration was going on in front of St.Paul's Cathedral in London: a great chance for me to have a look myself and take some shots. The atmosphere was quiet and peaceful, with hundreds of people of all ages and nationalities, a proof of civic sense from both the protesters and the police forces.

I took about 30 shots while I was there, but I find this one particularly beautiful: the octopus, the resolute look on the guy's face, the overall symmetry make this picture a bit different from all the others.

No matter what you think, among these youths there are the leaders of tomorrow.
