Spain -New cuts announced -October 02, 2012

Amid a week of protests it is expected that the government will outline 39bn euros worth of savings, tax rises, and structural reforms. Demonstrators said they were angry that the state has poured funds into crumbling banks while it is cutting social benefits. In the meantime regional tension has grown as well, after calls for more tax autonomy were rejected by the central government.
