Spanish activist use Frisbees to send their demands to the Spanish Congress.

From Leo and la Nomada in Madrid:

Otra cosa que me emociono: El Discongreso. Sabiamos que no podriamos llegar al Congreso, asi que decidimos escribir nuestras propuestas para uno democracia mejor (una de verdad) en Frisbees, discos voladores de colores. Cuando los lanzamos desde la plaza Netuno fue un autentico subidon.  Os asegure que ver volar cientos de discos hacia el Congreso, es una experiencia unica.  La democracia española es un disco rayado. Lo hemos escuchado mil veces, la cara A y la cara B son la misma. Ayer empezamos a cambiar de disco.
