Slovenia -Mass protest against budget cuts -November 17, 2012

About 30,000 people gathered in a large square in the capital Ljubljana to call for an end to the austerity program. The government, struggling to avoid a bailout, cut public sector wages by about 3% in 2012. It plans a further 5% cut in 2013 to bring the budget deficit to 3% of GDP, from 4.2% expected in 2012. The demonstrators demanded the government to create conditions that would ensure the majority of people to have jobs and live a decent life.
