Anti-austerity protests spread across Europe

() Anti-austerity rallies have been held across Europe – in Spain thousands marched to protest against high unemployment and their government’s handling of the economic crisis.

It was the first major demonstration since the end of the so called Indignant campaign in which Madrid’s central square was occupied by activists for several weeks.

One protester said: “We came to this demo, to support people who want things to change. Society is paying for this crisis and that’s what we want to change.”
