Protestors take to the streets in Barcelona as part as a 24-hour general strike movement in Spain

News Barcelona, Spain - 29 March 2012

Riot police clash with demonstrators during rioting as a 24-hour strike is called on Thursday, March 29, 2012 in Barcelona, Spain. Spanish workers staged a general strike to protest the government’s latest labour reforms, which are designed to help Spain lower its deficit within EU limits.

Spaniards refused to go to work in protest at further crushing austerity measures being brought in by the new centre-right Popular Party government.

“Spanish people from all over the country are getting out in the street for a general strike, the biggest one that Spain has ever encountered.The general strike is against the newest labor law created by the new right-leaning goverment in February 2012. The law is supposed to cut out a lot of benefits for the workers, and strengthen the power of the corporations and employers.”
