Spain -Civil servants protest budget cuts in Madrid area -February 8, 2012

On Tuesday 7 February, thousands of civil servants protested against cut backs by the Madrid local government, which they claim would jeopardize vital services like fire brigades and hospitals. The biggest objections to the local government’s plans include the extension of the working week, expected to lead to layoffs in the near future, and the cut in sickness benefits.
