Spain -Police officers protest in streets of Madrid -October 28, 2012

Some 3000 to 6000 off-duty police officers demonstrated in Madrid against the loss of their Christmas bonuses while on duty police officers were sent in to control the crowd. Police officers, like other public employees, have lost large parts of their salaries in the austerity cuts. The protesters were members of the Confederación Española de Policía (CEP), the Unión Federal de Policía (UFP) and the Sindicato Profesional de Policía (SPP).
