Protesters on Wednesday flooded Madrid in a massive show of force against biting austerity policies, capping a Europe-wide day of strikes and protests.
Many of the demonstrators, who also turned out in large numbers in other parts of Spain including in northeastern Barcelona, wore T-shirts declaring their allegiance to education and public health.
"Public health for all," said some shirts.
"We have the solution, send the bankers to prison!" protesters chanted in a sea of flags of the main CCOO and UGT unions, who organized Spain's second general strike in just eight months.
Many tens of thousands of people joined the rally in the Spanish capital, swarming around the main squares, where red-and-white union banners were strung up declaring: "They are taking away our future."

From watching Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy, it looks like nothing will be learned until the economy hits rock bottom.
One of the tactics of communists is fomenting civil unrest, leading to the destabilization of the government, and then to revolution.
These are communist agitators in the streets. Not just normal people.
Socialism breeds infantile societies.
These people aren’t even rational. Very sad & scary (coming soon to the U.S.).
cheezes these people are stupid

Absolutely. If anyone hasn't read "The Coming Insurrection", I ask that you do. It's these Euro communists blueprint. They are pissed that they were promised communism and that it hasn't come to complete fruition yet. (I guess that would be North Korea or Cuba) They fully believe the future involves only engaging in the activities that bring you enjoyment or fulfillment. They honestly believe enough will still choose to work and with technologies (not sure who is creating, maintaining or running these technologies-I guess the morons who choose to work for nothing, all 74 of them) that this is achievable.
It's a quick cheap read.
When you pay stupid people to sit and their fat ass an reproduce, you get a lot more stupid people
it should be MANDATORY that you do not have more children if you are collecting welfare, or you go to jail and the children get put up for adoption, because you are too stupid to take care of them
Who was that idiot woman who was on TV saying “who’s gonna pay for my 13 children?
HOW ABOUT YOU DONT HAVE 13 CHILDREN IF YOU CAN AFFORD THEM???
The movie “Idocracy” was a documentary, not a comedy
The looters are out in force.
“I want free stuff!!!!!!!”
(I don’t care how much it costs someone else or whether they can afford it or not.)
Preview now showing, coming to a theatre near you.
And so begins the Global economic collapse.
So true, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when..., well, there ain’t no ark this time only fire!
