The Europeans Primed to Protest

According to a new survey by Dalia Research, the Europeans most likely to hit the streets in protest and the Spanish. 31 percent of Spaniards said there was a fair chance of them joining a protest or demonstration in the next twelve months - 12 percentage points above the EU average. At the other end of the scale, those in the UK seem less than eager to get their placards out. With only 11 percent saying they were likely to protest, Prime Minister May probably doesn’t need to worry too much about a mass of angry people sweeping on Downing Street for the time being.

This chart shows the share of European citizens likely to join a protest or demonstration within the next 12 months, by country.
