After a competition which involved members of the public submitting their designs, and then a public vote on Increable.com to choose the most appropriate design, in September 2011 a symbol was chosen to represent the numerous protests in different countries which are currently calling for better democracies.

PRESS RELEASE:

After an international voting process involving both organizations and the general public, the symbol - entitled Súmate (Join) - by designer Javier Rodríguez has been selected as winner of graphic design competition International Real Democracy Now. "For this logo, I was looking for an universal gesture which could both represent and inspire people to unite to reclaim something we all need, a real democracy. The gesture of raising your hand represents many things: to ask for help, respect, commitment, and mainly to say: present!", says the designer.

In Regards of Outraged movement, Javier says: "It is a much needed move and it would be great to get everyone involved, joining the movemente and going out to the streets to express these thoughts." A graphic designer born in Argentina who has been living in Spain for a year, Javier added that "Although it won't be easy, we must move on. And, as my compatriot Ernesto "Che" Guevara said, the present is a time for struggle; the future is ours".
