Tens of thousands turned out in the streets of Toledo, Spain on Saturday against cuts by the right-wing Popular Party regional government of Castilla-La Mancha.
The measures include a 3% cut to public servants’ wages and an increase in the working week.
People attended from across the region, arriving in dozens of coaches.
The demo ended with the reading out of a manifesto that expressed the ‘palpable indignation’ and ‘alarm’ for the ‘brutal attacks on public services’ in the region.
Unions demanded that the Government halt any further measures that lead to unemployment and poverty, that it start ‘respecting the rights of public sector workers’ and make ‘those who have the most pay the most’.
The cities of Valencia, Alicante, Benidorm and Castellón also saw thousands take to the streets in protest against cuts in mobilisations organised by unions CCOO, UGT, USO and CSIF.
