Protesters Decry Spanish Austerity Plans

Tens of thousands of Spanish workers took part in walkouts across 40 cities on Saturday to join protests against government plans aimed at easing the country's financial woes.

The unions also blame the government for giving in to pressure from markets and forcing them to pay for the crisis.'
