Spanish civil servants take to the streets on Friday the 13th!

Spanish civil servants, many dressed in mourning black, took to the streets in angry protest as the government approved new sweeping austerity measures that include further wage cuts and tax increases for a country reeling under the weight of a near 25 percent unemployment rate.

Spain is under pressure to get its public finances on track amid concerns in the markets over the state of the country’s banks and the wider economy, which is back in recession.
