Tens of thousands protest against cuts in Spain

29.04.2012 - Madrid - Pía Figueroa

Unemployment is at 24.4%, the highest within eurozone. More than half of Spaniards under 25 years old are jobless.

In its first five months in office, Mariano Rajoy’s conservative government has introduced stinging austerity measures.

Protesters this Sunday in different Spaniard cities carried banners urging Rajoy to not “mess around with health and education.” Many protesters believe that the government intents to use the financial crisis as an excuse to sell off essential public services to the private sector.

Rajoy said that the Socialist forces “the least they could do now is to shut up”, since they were not able to handle the economic situation and left the country with a very bad economy.
