Spain anti-austerity marches attract thousands
Thousands of people are marching on Spain's parliament to protest austerity measures imposed by the government.

 

Saturday's protest comes on the 32nd anniversary of a failed attempt by the armed forces to overthrow the government. Several protest groups joined forces under a single slogan saying that Spain today "is under a financial coup", have called on people to march to parliament to protest austerity measures and what they say is government favoritism toward financial institutions at the expense of ordinary citizens.
